February 2017 Wrap Up


Hello! Late February wrap up you might have noticed, but better late than never! I’m just so busy with school!

Anyway, I read 7 books this month which isn’t that bad, though I try to read between 8 and 10 a month.

First up I read the Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

I thought this book was okay. The main character had the same name as the mom from Gilmore Girls, Lorelai, and I think that’s my favorite part. I just couldn’t really click or care about any of the characters or the romance.

I also read the Great Gatsby for school

I quite liked this book, I think I gave it 4 stars on goodreads, more like a 4.5 for me though. You know how in school when you read a book on your own outside of class and are expected to annotate it? Yeah well no one reads it and if they do they don’t annotate and it annoys me that my teacher this year doesn’t check for annotations cause I’m doing this extra work for nothing.

I re-read the second and third Captive Prince books

I read this trilogy last year and decided to cheat on my reading challenge a bit by re-reading them because they’re so short.

I read my Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella and Wayfarer, book 2 of the passenger duology by Alexandra Bracken and By Your Side by Kasie West

I really enjoyed My Not So Perfect Life! Sometimes with Sophie’s books I get annoyed with the main character but Katie was a great character.

Wayfarer for me was soooo slow the first half, but right after that it picked right up and I started getting really into it.

By Your Side was one of Kasie West’s usual contemporaries but this one lacked a bit I think because I felt that so much more could have been done with that library plotline. I also was unconvinced about the anxiety that the main character had throughout the book.

How was your month of reading? Link me up to your Wrap Up and I’ll be sure to check it out!

Right now I’m reading book 3 in the Darker Shade of Magic Trilogy, a Conjuring of Light and it’s really great so far! I’m about halfway through.
