Book Tag: F/F Feb

Introducing the #FFFeb book tag! I figured, since it’s the end of the month and all, it would be interesting to ask a few questions and see how people got on so. Here we are.

The questions can be found below (first up), followed by my own answers. And if you see this, and did F/F Feb, feel free to join in!

The Questions

MILLIE QUINT: How many did you read?
DOMINO SWIFT: How successful were you in only reading f/f?
AYLA: Did you set yourself a tbr and did you complete it?
LIKOTSI: How many challenges did you complete?
AUDRE: Which was your favourite read and why?
XIULAN: Which was your favourite ship and why?
MUNA: Did you read any new authors? Who was your favourite?
ROSA SANTOS: A book you were recommended and loved.
LEI: A book that was on your tbr for a while.
EVELYN HUGO: A book which you didn’t like as much as you expected to.
GOLDIE VANCE: Are there any books you wish you’d read but didn’t have time?
BARU CORMORANT: A book which wrecked you.

MILLIE QUINT: How many books did you read?

I read 30 books in February.

DOMINO SWIFT: How successful were you in only reading f/f?

Very! Every book I read was sapphic.

AYLA: Did you set yourself a tbr and did you complete it?

I did set myself a TBR (here) and, surprisingly, I actually managed to complete it too.

LIKOTSI: How many challenges did you complete?

I didn’t aim to complete any challenges but I got:

Also a few books that would have fit Black History Month as well.

AUDRE: What was your favourite read and why?

I’m trying to pick a book I read for the first time for this one, so no Time War, but The Scapegracers was so so good. It’s about a lesbian witch who finds herself a group of friends in a popular clique and they become a coven. I loved the relationship between the four girls (hello, seriously intense and fierce friendships!) and the way they would actually kill for each other. I can’t wait for book 2 as well, after that ending.

XIULAN: What was your favourite ship and why?

Ada and Camille from Dangerous Remedy. Or Red and Blue from This is How You Lose the Time War. The second is, of course, a reread, so obviously I was going to like them. The first was probably one of my favourite reads of the month. It doesn’t come out until May, but you’ll want to preorder it.

MUNA: Did you read any new authors? Who was your favourite?

I think most of the authors I read were new to me, but honestly I can’t say any stood out for me that much. Like, I loved the books I read, but I always felt like there were parts of the writing I didn’t like so much. That is, none of them I really felt oh my God I have to read everything they’ve ever written at once. That being said, Kat Dunn and Hannah Abigail Clarke are two authors I will be keeping an eye out for in the future.

ROSA SANTOS: A book you were recommended and loved.

Bad news. I didn’t actually love any of the books I was recommended. It’s almost like, because they were comparatively popular f/f books, my brain was like, you’re just not gonna like this out of some kind of spite. So yeah. I didn’t really love the books I was recommended…

LEI: A book that was on your tbr for a while.

Oh, a lot. I took this month as an opportunity to get a crack on with my TBR, because I hardly ever make my way through that. Probably the ones that were on there the longest were Chasing Days, Ice Massacre, and The Abyss Surrounds Us.

EVELYN HUGO: A book which you didn’t like as much as you expected to.

Ha! Where do I start? Crier’s War and The Weight of the Stars are probably the major ones. And both were surprises because people whose recs I trust loved the both of these. But I didn’t. And I couldn’t really tell you why. Honestly, I was just slightly bored during both of them, perhaps because my brain does this fucked up thing of going okay, this is a popular book, you’re gonna dislike it. Fun times.

GOLDIE VANCE: Are there any books you wish you’d read but didn’t have time?

Well, apart from wishing I made more of a dent in my TBR, nope.

BARU CORMORANT: A book which wrecked you.

None of the books I read wrecked me wrecked me, but there were some excellent ones that nearly made it in Dangerous Remedy, The Scapegracers, This is How You Lose the Time War, and Isola, Volume 2. Oh, and The Flywheel.
