I almost forgot today was the start of a new month, and then I remembered and was exited to take a look at all that I had read. February was a month of extremes, either I didn’t like the books or I really liked the books. Total for the month was 27 books! Although I should note that I’m at 49 books for the year and I’m just barely on track. Every time I see the little goodreads note that says “you’re on track!” I feel like they’re mocking me. 😀
1 Star: 6 books total
By the time February finished I had read some really awesome books, so I forgot that I DNF a lot of books at the beginning of the month. Gideon The Ninth was a big appointment, and one of the YA books I read last month. The only other book that I was disappointed with was Lanny, some reviews I had read hailed it as genius but honestly I thought it was a lot of pretentious bullshit with no story.
2 Stars: 3 books total
Two schools books here, not super surprised but I’ll say more on that when I review them. I am however heartbroken at having quit The Starless Sea. I loved Morgenstern’s first book and have been waiting for her to write more since I first picked up The Night Circus. Her second book sadly was super boring and lacked all that I loved from her previous work.
3 Stars: 9 books total
I read quite a few graphic novels last month, not just the ones that were required for my class. Though the class has reminded me how much I love the genre. I am looking forward to writing reviews for a few of these books.
4 Stars: 2 books total
Zami I read for school and devoured it in a couple days, it was really good. And I’m making headway in my bookish research for podcasting, I’m learning a lot!
5 Stars: 5 books total
When was the last time I had so many five star books?!? I can’t even remember (though that’s not saying much, sometimes I can barely remember what I did the day before)! All of these were amazing. Keep an eye out for their reviews! Definitely check them out if you’ve not read them yet. Bechdel is my new favorite comic and Camus my new favorite author.
