Monthly Wrap Up - February

I wish I had had a more exciting month reading-wise, but nah, it was pretty boring and uneventful. Insurmountably, The Heir of Fire was the best book that I read this month. Funny story though, I started reading it the day it was published in the UK (September, 2014), and even though I loved the beginning and I was so happy to get the book in my hands, I left it unfinished for several months.  'What', you may exclaim and I concur. WHAT??! How could I just leave it unfinished when it was so good?? Well, I have no answers for that question, but I think  that the fact that there was so much build-up for the future books, making the third book so different from the previous two, that I was a bit taken back by it. No excuse, though.

  1. Great books read there! I love the variety! Dorian Gray is one of my favorite classic books for sure!

    1. Thanks! Even though I mainly read YA books, I try to read from all the genres because I like to think it makes me appreciate different characteristics of different genres more. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I'm also drooling after Saga vol.2! The first volume was just so good, and I've heard it only gets better. :3

    1. I've heard the same thing!! They are just so expensive, one volume costs £10.99 here in Scotland, but I'm just dying to read the next ones. Ugh, all the problems in our lives :D Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I really want to read "A Darker Shade of Magic" but I haven't managed it yet. I just finished Saga Vol 4 and it is so good! Happy reading!

    1. Oh, now I'm just dying to go to the nearest bookstore and buy the next volumes of Saga! :D I know it's going to get only better and better and ugh, I have a mighty need to read them. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  4. I've been seeing a few of these books on a lot of blogs recently so it'll be interesting to see what everyone thinks of them. Enjoy your books!

    1. Tell me about it, they all have so much potential! :)

  5. I have heard great things about Station Eleven. A Darker Shade of Magic is one that everyone seems to love, I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! It looks like you had a great month. :)

  8. Red Queen, A Darker Shade of Magic and The Last Time We Say Goodbye sound awesome! I've read Red Queen and I LOVED it but the other two, I've only read reviews. Unfortunately, I'm part of the small group of people that didn't like Sin Eater. However, I hope you have more luck than I did.
