I read a little bit more than usual this month, which is saying something considering my average is more than most people read in a year (not including fellow book bloggers who would probably wipe the floor my numbers). I also managed to put together a decent number of blog posts, attend a writing conference, and reorganize my library. I am wildly impressed with myself. Let’s take a look at February 2015’s month in reading:
My favorite book for February is a tie between Dead Heat and Wither.
Guardians of the West by David Eddings – 2/5 stars
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – 3/5 stars
Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas – 3.5/5 stars
Tinker by Wen Spencer – 4/5 stars
Stolen by Kelley Armstrong – 4.5/5 stars
Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs – 5/5 stars!
Waiting on Wednesday Features:
I am equally excited for both of these titles, to the point where I will probably read both of them as soon as they come out.
Top Ten Tuesday Features:
Niki’s Top Ten Bookish Problems!
Other Fun Stuff:
After years of pining, I finally got the chance to meet my all-time favorite author Richelle Mead! It was a surreal experience, and I was so nervous I’m pretty sure I repeated myself three or four times “I love you, your my favorite author… Your my favorite… I love your books…” and so on. It was pretty pathetic. I blame the massive headache I was suffering from at the time.Even so, it was neat, and I got a couple of my favorites signed.
For the past two months I have been competing to become one of Julie Czerneda’s beta readers for her upcoming Clan novel. Aside from my master’s degree, I can’t remember ever working this hard towards anything in my entire life. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration, but I am seriously putting my heart and soul into this thing. As of this moment, I’ve made it into the top ten, and have submitted my last round of quiz answers. I’ll find out if I’ve been chosen sometime after Wednesday… Wish me luck!
How was your month in reading?
