February 2016 Stars Update

All of the February information for the six journals I track is entered – still no 2016 published books with 5 or 6 stars! But there was an explosion of 3 star titles this month – we’re up to 39 already – while there are now 9 titles with 4 stars. Please enjoy this lovely cover gallery of 4 star titles and the list of 3 star titles. I’ve left out subtitles for some of the longer non-fiction entries; new 3 star entries are in bold. For more complete information check out the¬†spreadsheet.

4 stars (9 titles):
