February Wrap Up

OMG! I cannot believe tomorrow it will be March. It seems like last week when I was writing up my 2012 wrap up posts… wow time flies. February was a really relaxing month filled with lots of snow & cold so my boyfriend and I didn’t get out to do much… mostly just spent the time inside warm & cozy! I accomplished quite a lot reading wise and I am so happy for that. I thought after I came out of the gates in January full speed I might slow down, or get into a slump but I’m still just as enthusiastic 🙂

Books Read:

A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forest – 4/5 Stars

Halo by Alexandra Adornetto – 4/5 Stars

Phoebe Pope and the Year of Four by Nya Jade – 4/5 Stars

The DUFF by Kody Keplinger – 4/5 Stars

Pivot Point by Kasie West – 5/5 Stars

Slammed by Colleen Hoover – 4/5 Stars

Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover – 5/5 Stars

Mind Games by Kiersten White – 3/5 Stars

Recalled by Cambria Hebert – 4/5 Stars

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn – 4/5 Stars

The Nightmare Academy by Mindee Arnett – 4/5 Stars

Cinder by Marissa Meyer – 5/5 Stars

Losing It by Cora Carmack – 4/5 Stars

*I was so excited that every book I read in February, with the exception of Mind Games, I loved 🙂 Now if only the rest of the year could be like that 😛

 

Challenges:

Goodreads Challenge: I am currently 8 books ahead in my Goodreads challenge which has me elated! As I mentioned before, in 2012 I was perpetually behind so it feels fantastic to be not just caught up, but ahead. I currently have 26 out of my 115 goal read.

2013 Debut Author Challenge: I didn’t put a large dent in this challenge this month with only reading 2 books, Pivot Point and The Nightmare Academy. Only Pivot Point will be counting towards February though, as my post for The Nightmare Academy is not until a few more days.

2013 TBR Pile Challenge: I didn’t read a lot on my TBR this month but I had planned that as I took part in another challenge but I did manage to get 3 books read(The DUFF, Halo & Cinder). Next month will surely be better.

Review Copy Cleanup 3.0: I am absolutely amazed at the amount of review books I got cleaned up this month! I finished 7 review books… but I also requested and got accepted for a few more :S Ah well, it’s the thought that counts, lol.

 

Notable Posts & Events:

I took part in two tours this month! One was for Recalled by Cambria Hebert and the other for Phoebe Pope and the Year of Four by Nya Jade. Both were great reads and  I will be continuing the series for both of them!

I posted my picks for Top Ten Authors I’d Put On My Autobuy ListTop Ten Favorite Paranormal Characters, Top Ten Favorite Romances, and Top Ten Bookish Memories.

I started participating in a new meme this month, Book Blogger Confessions. I’m loving this twice monthly discussion meme, it’s so much fun writing up the posts and I love reading what others have to say. The topics this month were “How has blogging and reading changed your review habits?” and “Share the Love – Authors and Bloggers you love“.

I waited on The Murmurings by Carly Anne West & Descendant by Lesley Livingston.

In addition to the books I read I also posted reviews for Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

I participated in The Crescent Chronicles book blitz and The Boys of Summer book blitz.

 

How was your month? Link up your wrap ups 🙂

Happy Reading!
