February has now come and gone, my lovely readers! This month went well and I made a few changes in my life. First one was figuring out my priorities a bit more, which lead to my second change which is me quitting a job that was bringing me nothing but frustration. I’m deciding to concentrate on what makes me happy and make a career out of that, I know it will be challenging, but I think I can do it!
Books I read:
This month I read more books than last month and, as you can see from my Stacking the Shelves of the past month, I have packed my bookshelves with a bunch more books which make me happy. Here is a list of the books I read this month with a short summary of the reviews whether I’ve posted them yet or not.
Curtsies & Conspiraces (Finishing School #2) by Gail Carriger five beans – I am seriously enjoying this series, the characters are witty and fun and so individual, the plot is interesting and gets more captivating each round.
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer four point five beans – I really enjoy retellings, and this one is one of my favorites I’ve read so far. The characters were deep and felt real to me and I can’t wait to see where the series goes!
Tell The Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt three beans – I honestly was not impressed with this book. I know it was about a touchy subject, AIDS, but I found myself more interested in the sisters’ relationship than the rest of the plot. It also took me forever to finish this book and I almost DNF’ed it (yes, that’s a word now) in all honesty.
Howling Heart by April Bostic three beans – I was not impressed with this werewolf story. It felt a bit like it dragged on to me and just wasn’t one of my favorite reads.
Marked Masters (Bodies of Art #2) by Ritter Ames five beans – This series has me guessing the whole way. I still don’t know if we can trust Jake, but he’s here no matter what, and the budding romance they are choosing to ignore? And I love that each book is part of a larger plot. The next one needs to come out sooner!
The Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin five beans – This is like my newest favorite children’s book. At least that’s what I find it to be. It is a book that is nice and short with GORGEOUS art that I will happily share with any children who have an imagination in my future. I could see this as a book an aunt would read to nieces and nephews or a grandmother to grandchildren. I love this story.
Legend (Legend #1) by Marie Lu five beans – I will suggest this book to anyone who is looking for something to read. That should tell you a lot as is, but honestly, this book is wonderful and pulled me in and I stayed there the entire time.
The Almost Girl (The Riven Chronicles #1) by Amalie Howard four beans – I really enjoyed this read and was surprised that I got through it so fast. The story itself surprised me, a lot. Like a new surprise every few chapters that just intensified the entire story. The time line was a bit confusing but I really enjoyed this one!
Book: Legend (Legend #1) by Marie Lu
Movie: I didn’t see any movies this month actually….believe it or not.
TV Show: I started Samurai 7 and I am LOVING it!
