January 2019 Wrap Up & Possible End of Reading Slump!

January started rough. I was in the middle of a horrible reading slump and just had no motivation to get through books, but I think it’s really turned around! I spent the last week and a half of the month rereading some favorites in preparation for one of my most anticipated books of the year! I think those rereads helped me get back into the reading habit and saved me from my slump (although if you want to hear about more tips to get out of a reading slump, I have a whole post about it).

15 Most Anticipated Releases of February 2019

February is going to be a busy month. There are so many amazing books coming out, plus my 21st birthday is on the 4th so super excited!

While 15 releases may seem like a lot, there are even more than the ones I mentioned here. I had to narrow it down to the stories I’m dying to get my hands on, otherwise, this post would get a little bit too long.

Read on to see what I’m most excited for, in order of release date!

Fairytale Retelling Recommendations!

Here are some fairytale retellings I adore, inspired by familiar characters we all grew up with!

For Snow White Fans: The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine
The Shadow Queen is not your typical Snow White retelling. This dark and twisted fantasy novel follows a fugitive princess trying to take back her crown, and a prince who will do anything to save his kingdom, even if it means making a deal with an evil queen.
For Cinderella Fans: Geekerella by Ashley Poston
Geekerella is an adorable Cinderella retelling, centered around fandom and geek culture. It’s a fresh take on a classic fairytale that will remain in your heart long after you put it down.
For Aladdin Fans: The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
This Aladdin-inspired tale tells the story of Zahra, a jinni whose lamp is picked up by the not-very-princely Aladdin. When given the opportunity to be free of her lamp, she must decide if freedom is worth everything it will cost.

What is your favorite fairytale retelling?
