I feel like February needs to be longer. This month literally always throws me off. I need more days to finish up my book reading before March gets here, and I’m a total mess…okay, I’m a total book mess right now, but shhhhh.
Let’s start with the books I actually managed to accomplish on my February TBR this month! It wasn’t nearly as much as January, because I think I hit a bit of a reading slump for about the past two weeks due to real life problems…although book life is real life, so I don’t know why I’m separating the two?
Anyhoo, I read 11 books this month, and here they are:
- Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer
- Secrets of a Reluctant Princess by Casey Griffin
- By Your Side by Kasie West
- Unfathomable Chance by K. T. Munson
- Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen
- Ghostly Echoes by William Ritter (probably won’t review)
- Operation Prom Date by Cindi Madsen (review coming Friday)
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (review coming soon)
- The Enemy Within by Scott Burn
- These Ruthless Deeds by Kelly Zekas and Tarun Shanker (review coming Monday)
I said 11, but one of the books that I did read was more of information for myself and was super boring so I don’t really need to review it. XD I read 6 books off my TBR, added 4 I hadn’t planned on reading, and left 6 books unread. It’s a bit more dedicated to a TBR than I usually am, but I could definitely use some work.
My favorites of this month: Wires and Nerve, These Ruthless Deeds, and By Your Side. All of them were fantastic and only made me love these authors more. By Your Side was so fluffy and cute, and These Ruthless Deeds was the perfect sequel! And I think we all know how I feel about Wires and Nerve.
I DNF’d Unfathomable Chance and A Court of Thorns and Roses (so much more discussion to come about this one in the future – and trust me, I’m so sad about this myself).
Least favorite? Probably Ghostly Echoes. I loveeddd Jackaby and Beastly Bones (the first two in the Jackaby series), but this book just fell flat to me.
Let’s hope I have a more productive March, and I can’t wait to see what these books have in hold for me!
Okay, so I plan on sticking a few of the old ones I wanted to get on here, but also some new book faces of books I need to desperately read this month:
- Caraval by Stephanie Garber (I need to get on this STAT)
- Less than Charming by Rebecca Demarest
- Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
- The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Aldieh
- Bad Blood by Demitria Lunetta
- Distant Starless Nights by Myriam Ullens
- Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves
- Myths of Mish by Katie Hamstead
- Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
- Teardrop by Lauren Kate
- The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine
These are just the ones that I would really like to get too, but I feel like I’m already going to have a very distracted March. I won two giveaways through blog tours – although I never got an email confirmation, so who knows XD – and I totally may get distracted by those. And I know I just got Empress of a Thousand Skies and will be getting Daughter of the Pirate King very soon, which really might distract me. I’m pretty sure this list will go worst than last time, so let’s just see how it goes? Wish me major luck 😉
Other Misc. Items
Okay, tomorrow I will be coming to you twice. I know, TWICE. Your poor Readers. 😉 But I will be starting Book Madness next week, which is put on by the amazing Maggie Ann Martin, and will involve YA characters duking it out like the college basketball teams. My favorite character – or at least one of them that I think has the best shot of kicking major book butt – will be revealed tomorrow, and if you take part in by voting, you’re in a world for of fun, bookish prizes! I can’t wait for you guys to join it. Wanna take some guesses who it is? 😉 Fun fact: it might not be the most obvioussssssss.
Also, my other post will be another adventure in the Calendar Girls saga. Remember, you can always sign up – it’s not just for girls, too!
And lastly, I’ve been thinking about doing a giveaway super soon. I just want to ask your opinion – is it easier to do it via Twitter or Rafflecopter? I need super simple, since I feel like I will mess this up. XD The book prize I’m thinking is gonna be a good one 😉
So, what does your February Wrap-up look like? And what’s on your list for March? Do we have any the same?
