February was a slow month which caused me to lower my Goodreads goal from 70 to 50-YIKES. But I don’t want to stress myself out when October approaches and I’m 30 books behind.
I read some shitty books and one fantastic book. As usual, click the picture or the title for a full review.
The Last Beginning by Lauren James
I read this for SLJ (School Library Journal) so I can’t review it until after it is published.
Losing Leah by Tiffany King
DAMN this book was disappointing. Leah’s development was poor and there were no answers to her issues. The pacing was bananas and some things were unrealistic.
Bang Bang Rating:
The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza by Shaun David Hutchinson
Great premise but the execution…Too many people giving Elena too much advice-it dragged down the plot.
Immortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes
I stopped caring. I’m just glad it’s over.
Furyborn by Claire LeGrand
So this book is pretty great. There’s strong female friendships and complicated villains and uncertainty of identity and cliffhangers and a fascinating world and secrets and you just need to read it.
I want all the SWAG and I want to meet Claire.
- Finally reading Lord of the Rings. I haven’t seen any of the movies so I know nothing about it.
- Kiss of Deception is in the top five favorite fantasy series of all time and I’m really excited to read Pearson’s new series. If you haven’t read Kiss of Deception, I highly recommend it but it is not a fluffy read-be prepared to take notes.
- I highly recommend The Case For Jamie if you love Sherlock Holmes-great character development.
