Inky's Fri-yay February 28 (and giveaway)

Well it’s a crazy leap year, but even with the extra day, the month of February is coming to an end and the season will change and March will march on.

I’ve done a wrap up of all the February New Releases for all of you that like to keep your TBR piles growing! I am in the process of adding the March new releases to the database just so I can keep up with imosshelf and her machine like reading skills!

So why don’t we start with imosshelf’s reviews over at Confessions of a Readerholic? It is the blog birthday over there! One year old! Happy Birthday Readerholic!

We have the hot off the presses just released “cute contemporary” Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saaed, the body positive LoveOzYa What I Like About Me by Jenna Guillame the January release Loveboat Taipei by Abagail Hing Wen AND the adorable LoveOzYA that imosshelf recommends for movie adaptation, The Long Distance Playlist.

That’s some Bookish Blog Birthday celebration!

The Best of Lozza looks at historical fiction and the Libris Vermis Book Club has read and highly recommends the wonderful Louisiana’s Way Home by Kate DiCamillo.

the Burning Through Books Readathonblinkies are reading to raise money for fire relief and this week we have a very balanced review of Carve the Mark by the very popular Veronica Roth.

NOVELty reads gives us a review of the illustrated novel Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick (and I can recommend the film adaptation too) and got lots of feels from Hart and Seoul by Kristen Burnham.

And last but certainly not least some BRILLIANTLY CREEPY ORIGINAL CREATIVE WRITING  from siany. Don’t Turn Around chapter 1 – and we are waiting for Chapter 2!

Now speaking of creative writing we have a giveaway aimed right at the blogdogs and blinkies that love playing with words and pouring their hearts and minds out on the page. In honour of the leap year and the extra day of the month I will be giving away a copy of this guided journal by Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U give. This journal includes craft tips, writing prompts, and exercises for keen creatives and also includes illustrated inspirational quotes! If you want to have the chance of winning this book, simply comment below by Thursday March 5th. Have a fun extra February Day! And a special Happy Birthday to all those who have a leap year birthday!
