February Wrap Up
Hello everybody, it is the end of the month and that can only mean one thing in the Book Blogging and Book Tube community. Monthly wrap ups. In the month of February I went above and beyond and read a total of…. are you ready for it?… 13 BOOKS!!!!!!!! Wow, I couldn’t believe it myself when I tallied them up.
So, I’m going to give a brief run down of each book and my feelings on it.
In order of when I read them:
A Whole New World – By Liz Braswell
I saw this book and was immediately interested. I had never really read a book based in the desert. This is a twist on the tale of Aladdin. I have a book review posted for this book. A really good read.
Rebel Belle – By Rachel Hawkins
This book had been making it’s way around book tube. A really good book combining Greek Mythology, southern charm and high school drama.
Dorothy Must Die – By Danielle Paige
Another hyped up book, and another retelling. Follow Amy down the Yellow Brick Road to hep save Oz from the evil Dorothy.
Beautiful Secret – By Christina Lauren
It was time for a contemporary. Now, Christina’s books are definitely adult in content. They are a fun read. Just what I needed. I like reading these books after a in-depth fantasy.
Curse of the Sphinx – By Raye Wagner
This is the Pursuetopia Book of the Month for February. I enjoyed this book. I appreciated the mixture of mythology and high school drama. The transformation scenes were very well fleshed out and I really enjoyed the romance.
Maybe Not – By Colleen Hoover
I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Colleen Hoover lately and decided to give her books a go. I started off with a novella and can definitely say that I will be picking up more of her books.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – By Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
I read this because the book-to-movie adaptation came out at the end of the month. It was a good book, I did not love it but I did like it. There is a review posted on my page.
Breathe – By Abbi Glines
Another contemporary read for this month. A nice light-hearted romantic story. Don’t get me wrong, the protagonist has had some hard yards and is very relatable to me. I enjoyed this book immensely.
Divergent – By Veronica Roth
This book was a re-read for me in preparation for the Allegiant movie that comes out in April. I already knew that I love this book and Veronica Roth’s writing. It was good to be able to revisit this world. This book also counted towards my monthly reading challenge – where in February I had to re-read a book.
Glass Sword – By Victoria Aveyard
This was my most anticipated read of February 2016 and I must say I was not disappointed. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next instalment in this series. I have a review posted on my blog.
Anna and the French Kiss – By Stephanie Perkins
This was another hyped book I had been hearing about and I was in the mood for a contemporary romance. This book provided that in buckets. It was just what I needed.
Rebel of the Sands – By Alwyn Hamilton
I got this book from the YA Chronicles Subscription Box for February. It was a little slow to start for me, but really kicked off from the train scene. I enjoyed this book to no end.
Undead and Unwed – By Mary-Janice Davidson
I finished this book this morning. This is an Adult Fantasy book based on a girl who is hit by a truck and wakes up in a coffin to find out she is now a Vampire. It is part of a series that I have wanted to pick up for a while now. I loved the snarky dialogue and the story flowed effortlessly.
There you go, that is the books I read this month. Let me know in the comments below if you’ve read any of them and what you thought. Or even, any recommendations of what I should read next.
