February 2021 in Review

Updated: Jul 14, 2021

February was the first month in a 3-month long reading challenge that I joined on Goodreads called UNO. Due to my participation in this reading challenge, the amount of books I read increased exponentially. The amount of short stories and manga I read also increased. So, needless to say, I had a really productive month.

Here are all the statistics for the month!


I read a total of 11.5 physical books, 3.5 audiobooks, 22 graphic novels, 20 manga and 9 short stories for a total of 66 books and roughly 13,061 pages.

I ended up DNFing 5 books this month which is good as I am trying to weed out the books I'm not interested in. Here are all the books I DNFed this month and why:

  • If I Disappear by Eliza Jane Brazier - writing style too strange

  • Bone Chase by Weston Ochse - had nothing on Dan Brown

  • The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert - paranoid MC with anger issue which was an automatic no from me

  • What Big Teeth by Rose Szabo - too confusing to read

  • Slaine: Warrior's Dawn - too dense

Here are all the books I read this month. If you want to check out my reviews for them, click on the pink links!
