I actually sort of reached my goal for the month, so I’m super happy about that! I read a lot during my week-off from school and managed to make it three below my TBR hopes. I’m really surprised that I read ten books this month because it is the shortest month of the year, after all. I went from being two books behind my Goodreads challenge to a peak of five books ahead.
I started off reading Radio Silence, which I know, even this early into the year, will be one of my favorites of 2018. It is such a diverse and beautiful book. I highly, highly recommend it. Here is my five star review.
Within the first two weeks, I read Wild Embers, The Girls, and The Girl at Midnight. Wild Embers is a poetry book by Nikita Gill. I really enjoyed it and ended up giving it four stars. The Girls was actually a book I read for school because I’m doing a paper on Charles Manson and I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would, giving it five stars. Lastly, The Girl at Midnight fell short at only three stars.
During break, I read The Hate U Give, The Kite Runner, The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Looking Glass Wars, and an ARC of Autonomous (which I should have read last year because the book is out now). Technically I started The Knife of Never Letting Go (three stars–a disappointment) the week before, but it took me until the middle of break to finish it. The Hate U Give and The Kite Runner were both five star wonders and incredibly important. However, The Looking Glass Wars was awful (1 star, yay!) and Autonomous ended up with only three stars. In the end, I may have read a lot over break, but only two were truly great novels. My review for The Hate U Give is located here. I should have reviews for some of the others coming out soon, but I’ve gotten rather behind because of how many books I read.
At the end of break, I started The Glass Spare and finished it midway last week. It was really quite amazing, despite being similar to other YA fantasies, so I’m giving it five stars with a review to come!
I hope you all had an amazing February!
