Omitting my favorite of the month section because honestly, there wasn’t a stand-out, though I thoroughly enjoyed everything I 4-starred (and I’m enjoying Optic Nerve as well – I’ll finish it by the end of the day).

Other posts from February:
February was an excellent month! I just got back yesterday from spending a week in LA – one of my favorite cities – with some of my favorite people.
Spending the day at Universal with Will and Jess, the dream team behind one of my favorite blogs, Books and Bao. If you don’t follow them, you need to rectify that immediately, because they are genuinely wonderful, delightful people who shine a light on translated fiction from around the world in their excellent blog.
Attending Brandon Taylor‘s book event at Skylight Books for his debut novel Real Life. Brandon is one of my favorite personalities on Twitter, and he was such an engaging and intelligent speaker. If his book tour is coming to your city, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Spending four straight days with my friend Abby going down a BTS rabbit hole. Honestly it’s the most fun I’ve had in ages so I’m not even going to apologize for how silly this is. If you’re into BTS, comment and tell me who your bias is!
Anyway, due to the fact that I was gone for a week and didn’t take my laptop, I am VERY BEHIND on blogging and replying to comments. Bear with me! Also comment and tell me what you’ve been up to lately!
And the next post you can expect to see from me is my Women’s Prize 2020 longlist prediction. I’m finishing that up as we speak.
What was the best book you read in February? Comment and let me know!
