February | June Makle

June Makle AKA Syedha Shakur grew up in Ellicott City, MD. FEBRUARY is a story of a teen-aged girl who had her childhood stolen from her, when she got raped by the popular neighborhood jock. The story is based on real life events that occurred; however, the names have been changed to protect the identities of those involved. Unfortunately, many teen-aged girls are raped by people they know and trust; but, never tell anyone what has happened to them. Likewise, those who have committed these types of offenses arent brought to justice; however, they have created children which they in turn deny (do not acknowledge as their own). Ultimately, children who have been created through such offenses grow up living with the shame of the reality of how they were created. FEBRUARY has been written to help heal the wounds of those Women and Children who have had to live with this reality. Ms. Makle is currently developing a website for children who have been denied by their parents so that they will have a forum to release their pain and shame; and, be able to live peaceful, happy, and productive lives.

All the Feb wrap-ups I‘ve missed. For the month I read 18 books/4188 pages (not including ongoing reads), 6 NF and 3 books by Black authors (short on that goal). In #FabulousFebruary I read my four planned plus two more books, and in #20in4 I beat my 20-chapter goal by (finishing a book with long chapters and starting one with teeny ones) reading 52!

February was kind of a strange reading month for me: 🚫DNF‘ed Then We Came to the End and I hardly ever bail on books
🚫read 2 other books I didn‘t really enjoy
✅listened to 2 fantastic audiobooks
✅surprised myself by liking Ivanhoe way more than I thought I would
✅read both #roll100 picks
✅read #bookspin
✅read #foodandlit buddy read
✅6/7 (plus the DNF) were off of my GR TBR

I love the stats on StoryGraph… it‘s always so interesting to see how it reveals my reading trends. (I would love a graph to show the breakdown between TBR/new/library reads, though—given my perpetual quest to read the books I own!)

Lots of 4.5⭐️ reads for me in February! Those top reads were:
🍜 Crying in H Mart (for #NewYearWhoDis)
💜 Heartstopper Vol. 1
📏 The Long and the Short of It
⏳ How Long ‘til Black Future Month (re-read & just as good)

I read 26 (audio)books in February, making it my first double-digit reading month since last February. It was an mostly enjoyable bunch of books; only a few turned out to be duds.

Here are all my #FebruaryReads

24 books read
1 DNF not shown - Little Thieves by Margaret Owen

5⭐️ reads: Finlay Donovan, Project Hail Mary and Sweet Ruin

Least favorite read: Fae Devoted - 2.5⭐️ for clunky writing

A much better reading month than I anticipated!

Reader93 Did you like Jade city? I've been considering it and it's been on my TBR forever. 4mo
Nessavamusic @Reader93 Yes it was good, a 4⭐️ read for me. I look forward to continuing the series 4mo
MartinaLove It must be a superpower to read 24 books a month. I can't read more than 3 books a month sometimes 0. 😂 I use to read a lot before but I was diagnosed with severe depression last year. But I read somewhere between 8 to 10 books a month. But wow keep up the amazing streak!! 👏 4mo
Nessavamusic @MartinaLove Any amount of reading is awesome. Reading is my way to relax and stay sane. 4mo

I finally put together my stacks for February #bookspinbingo! I only have a few carryovers from January, since I did great with my card this month! I‘ll be working on finishing up TOB reading in February, plus it‘s a shorter month, so I know I won‘t make as big of a dent, but I‘m excited for the number draw!

Tamra I have The Far Field and Girl Woman Other TBR. But I doubt I‘ll get to them in February. 😌 5mo

These are the books I read in February. The Sympathizer and The Tunnels of Cu Chi were for #FoodandLit #Vietnam @Butterfinger . Between the World and Me for Black History Month (and I‘m almost finished with Coming of Age in Mississippi by Anne Moody, which is wonderful).
