My Thoughts

Out of the fourteen books I read in February, half of them were for school. Still, I’m glad that I managed to read seven books for pleasure. If you think about it, that’s like one book every two days, which is crazy!

This month I discovered one of my new favorite authors: Meagan Spooner! I am so impressed with her writing and Hunted and Unearthed were my favorite books from February. Unearthed is definitely going in my top five list of favorite books for the year, I can already tell. Plus, Undying, the second book, comes out in December, so that’s not too long of a wait.

Not surprisingly my least favorite books were required readings for school. I don’t always hate school reading though. I really enjoyed The Right to ChooseLysistrata, and Marie Claire. But something about being forced to read books just decreases the likelihood of me actually enjoying it.

This month I also DNFed one book. I don’t know if I can really say I DNFed it, because I only read about five pages. I got Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye from the library, and the due date was coming up and I didn’t feel like cramming it in because I had school books to read and I was more interested in finished Dear Martin. I didn’t add it to my DNF shelf because I really didn’t give it a chance.
