February in books

It's the last day of February! I always think of February as the worst winter month - it's ages after christmas and it feels like winter will go on forever. There are crocus and daffodil and snowdrop shoots everywhere at the moment although they haven't bloomed yet, but I guess they show that spring is finally coming.
I feel like I should do a kind of roundup post for the end of the month. In February I read a total of 19 books and 2 plays. I reviewed a grand total of 9:

Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Spiked! by Sandra Glover
Let’s get lost by Sarra Manning
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Looking for jj by Anne Cassidy
The Goldsmith’s daughter by Tanya Landman
The truth about forever by Sarah Dessen
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Split by a Kiss by Luisa Plaja

All of them are good books but my personal favourites were The Truth about Forever, The Goldsmith’s Daughter and City of Bones.

A few books that I liked but didn’t blog about are:
Book of a thousand days by Shannon Hale
Inside the cage by Matt Whyman
Ithaka by Adele Geras
Midnighters: Blue Moon by Scott Westerfeld

And the books out in March that I really, really want to get my hands on?

Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott
I really enjoyed Perfect You and the sample chapter for Something, Maybe has me begging for more!
Furnace: Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith
I only heard about Lockdown a few days ago but Liz's review over at My Favourite Books has me interested already.

*Edited to add*

I should probably include Going Too Far here too. It's not available on Amazon UK until April, but the US release date is March 17th. What can I say, look at the beautiful cover! And the sample chapter is pretty cool too.


  1. You have a wonderful taste in books :)

  2. Thanks :) I enjoyed them.

  3. I agree with Priya! :)

    I really want to read Something, Maybe as well. I haven't read Perfect, either. Must get ordering.

  4. Oops, I mean Perfect You. I've only read Bloom by Elizabeth Scott, and I loved it.

  5. You rock! I only managed to read 11 books this month. Too much blogging maybe?

  6. Lenore, I may have read more books, but you definitely beat me in blog posts!

  7. Chicklish - I haven't read Bloom yet, but Perfect You is good. And I'm so excited for Something, Maybe.
