6 fascinating new book releases of February 2019
I’ve been wanting to start a tradition: every month, I will be presenting you new books that will be released during the month.
If you’re like me, and you’re always looking for a new book to read (despite the huge stack of books you already have to read), you’ll love these posts! Don’t forget to check back for the book releases of the next months!
I try to choose as many different types of books as possible, to satisfy all tastes. I myself read any kind of books.
Here’s what catches my eye: 1- an intriguing title, 2- a nice cover, and finally 3- an attractive summary. There are obviously too many books that appear each month for me to present them all, but I will introduce you to those that have interested me most thanks to the three criteria mentioned above.
Without further ado, here are 6 fascinating new book releases in February 2019!
