February has come to an end. When it came to reading, I did a decent amount. February was another strange month, much like January. Only this time I wasn’t bombarded by snow. It was more of a lack of time and desire. Even so, I was able to put a small dent in my TBR, which is always a great feeling. I might have read more, but I also spent a lot of time on a book that I ended up abandoning partway through the month. This February 2020 reading wrap-up will cover all of the books that I read during the month and my thoughts on them.

February 2020 reading wrap-up
This volume had so many hilarious moments that I found myself laughing throughout. While Komi is still struggling with talking to others, there is a bit of her that is opening up. I predict this will become one of my favorite manga series.
Yona of the Dawn Vol 22 by Mizuho Kusanagi
It’s really hard to talk about a book that’s so far into a series. I don’t want to spoil anything for someone who may be interested in reading this. Let’s just say that like all of the previous volumes, I really enjoyed this one and really the only downside is knowing that I need to wait for a while until the next one is out.
I decided to give this series a try since I have enjoyed some of the other series by Takahashi. This is about a girl who can see ghosts and a strange classmate of hers. There are quite a few interesting events that occur in this volume. It has great potential and I honestly can’t wait to read more of this series.
This book really ramped up the storyline that had been developing in the previous books. I felt that this book was the one that made me want to continue reading on with the series. There is a lot more action and overall plot points in this book that really brought it up the level I have come to expect from these series.
This manga takes the two stories from the Another Side Earthbound light novel. The first story deals with Mitsuha’s younger sister, Yotsuha, and her experience with something a little unnatural that tied well into the main story. Whereas the second story is about her father and how he came to the shrine and eventually left that world behind. I feel like his story has the most impact, especially with the main story. It allows you to better understand why the father acts the way he does.
I first read this story about 16 years ago and really enjoyed it and felt it was time to revisit it. I love the concept of having gods in the form of horses that can alter time and the riders who work with them. So much happens in this book. The world-building is done really well along with character development. I’m glad that I revisited this story as it really is fantastic.
The third book in the series and this one focuses on Glory, the RainWing of the group. With so little known about the RainWings, even among the other dragon races, I felt this would be quite an interesting read. And it was. However, I felt that the end result of learning just who Glory was to the RainWings was just a bit disappointing. Even so, I will be continuing on with this series and it does have some good potential.
