I didn’t say I promised to stick to my TBR, did I? Because I shouldn’t have. I went WAAAY off-course.
Overall, I read seventeen books this month. Below is a list of all the books along with my brief thoughts on book (or story as to how or why I read this book at this time, though I usually include that in my full reviews as well) and links to full reviews, if I have full reviews.
As you may or may not know, I am participating in the Jumble Your Genres Challenge this year and planning each months TBR around whichever genre the challenge specifies. Last month, all the books I read counted towards the challenge. This month, not so much. Therefore, any book where the title is PURPLE counts towards the challenge.
- Requiem by Lauren Oliver: I rolled this from my January tbr into February, because I did not quite finish it January like I had hoped. Anyway, on the actual book… everyone said it was really disappointing. While it didn’t quite live up to the series, It certainly was no Mockingjay. (NO REAL REVIEW)
- In the Arms of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane: I’d started this book in December 2013 and put it aside. I picked it up again in February and finished it. And I don’t know whether it was contemporary or paranormal. It FELT like a contemporary, but it READ like a paranormal. I’m gonna say it was contemporary with paranormal elements. Sound good?

- Premeditated by Josin L. McQuein: I liked this book. AND I WANT A TV SHOW OF IT!!! But I’ll live if one is never made. If they turn it into a movie, though, there will be serious protests. Like, maybe a sit-in. Or, I don’t know, how does one protest against a movie being made? REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/563765240
- Reality Boy by A.S. King: I don’t really have any strong thoughts on this book. REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/844959605
- Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill: this book was fun and cute and I really, really liked it. REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16067180-being-sloane-jacobs
- Goodbye, Rebel Blue by Coriell Shelley: This book was very real, and it was a hard thing to approach, and I enjoyed it. REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/660422034
- Unearthly, Hallowed and Boundless by Cynthia Hand: I loved this trilogy! So much! I’ve finished a Lot a series lately (Divergent, Wither, Delirium) and pretty much ALL of the last books were disappointing, but not this one. This one was… so satisfying. Loved it. (NO REAL REVIEWS)
- Noami and Ely’s No Kiss List by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan: I have a thing on Goodreads that’s not a real review, but I’m gonna link you to it anyway, because I think it’s important. REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/850274091?book_show_action=false
- Bloodthristy by Flynn Meaney: REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/670858420
- Bumped and Thumped by Megan McCafferty: The first book in this series was alright, but I wasn’t in love. The second book was definitely and improvement. Bumped: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/852810462?book_show_action=false Thumped: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/853752410?book_show_action=false
- Aimee by Mary Beth Miller: This book really made me feel. REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/854629436
- Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks: I saw the movie and the movie made me want to read the book. I know that’s not how you’re supposed to do it, but sometimes I need to wath the movie cuz I’m not at all interested in the book, okay? REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/442438848?book_show_action=false
- Fahrenhiet 451 by Ray Bradbury: The first classic that I have read willingly and actually finished. Also, I enjoyed it. Surprise. REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/858419528?book_show_action=false
- The Different Girl by Gordon Dalquist: This book was, eh. Sort of slow. Okay, it was slow. But it made a point, and I understand the point. But I didn’t really love it. REVIEW: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/827136654?book_show_action=false
Overall, I read 17 books this month, 8 of which were contemporary and thus counted towards the Jumble Your Genres Challenge. Thanks for stopping by!
