Wrap-Up | February 2016

Even though my reading goal is telling me I’m behind (again, ugh), I think I actually did pretty decent this month considering how short it was and that I had a chunk of week occupied by a visiting friend. I managed to read seven books and listen to one audiobook.

I’ll try to do better in March (I know, I always say that), but here’s what I managed to read in February:

The audiobook I listened to this month was for A Million Suns by Beth Revis in preparation for the final book in the series, Shades of Earth. A review for the latter will be coming once I get my March schedule all set up, but, hint hint, it was fantastic. I need to go read the short stories now.

Next I finished up a book I started reading back in November, but didn’t pick up again until this month, A Parchment of Leaves by Silas House. The friend visiting me had recommended it to me, and it was actually pretty good. Not something I’d go back to, but a pretty good story to read.

Next is a book I’ve been slowing crawling through for a long time, Mastiff by Tamora Pierce. It took forever for me to get through, but it was really good. Not my favorite of her series, but still really good.

Allegiant

Next is yet another series conclusion, Allegiant by Veronica Roth. I have mixed feelings about this one, but I know I’m not the only one. I knew the twist was coming (one of the only books I’ve ever been spoiled for), and I still just… don’t know how to feel about it all. I still enjoyed the first book the most.

Sixth on the list is a book I received from Netgalley, Black Five by J. Lynn Bailey. You can read my review on this one here. (Side note, who else is thrilled they brought back linking your other content in the linky option when you write/edit posts? I am.)

Seventh is a book that will be getting a review posted, This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I love this series, it may be one of my favorite series of all time. I just need to get reading the final book. I have it, I just need to start it.

And, finally, a book I blew through despite the company I was entertaining, Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. This one will also be getting a review posted, because wow. Holy crap, I love Sepetys’ stories, especially when they have to do with WWII. I want more.

And that’s what I managed to read in the month of February! Until next month, thanks for reading!
