January 2013 Wrap Up

Hey! It's been 2013 for a whole month now and it's crazy! I've done exams, started controlled assessments and done loads of school work but I've still managed to fit in some reading and blogging too, which is good, even if it isn't as much as I'd hoped! I'm hoping to read more in February as we have half term and no more exams until June, so in theory I should have more time. We'll see! Here's what I read in January!

Legacy (Night School, #2)  Level 2 (The Memory Chronicles, #1)  The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)

1. Night School by CJ Daugherty (reread)
2. Night School: Legacy by CJ Daugherty
3. Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans
4. The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan
5. The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead (half)

I was lucky enough to attend the launch party for Level 2, and it was great fun! There was cake and a photographer (guess which one I liked best? :P) and I'm happy to report that I really enjoyed Level 2 as well. Night School was a reread, so that I'd be all clued up for the sequel, Legacy, and I'm so in love with those books! I'm half way through The Indigo Spell right now and hope to finish it soon, and as expected from a Richelle Mead book, it's awesome. 

Number of pages read this month: 1671
Average number of pages per book: 334

My favourite book of this month was...

THE TRAGEDY PAPER by Elizabeth LaBan

The Tragedy Paper

This book surprised me. I had no idea it would be as awesome as it was, so I'm really glad I decided to read it, kind of on a whim! I feel like not many people have heard of it, and I want everyone to read it because it's so good! You can read my review here.

Here's what I'm looking forward to reading in February:

The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #2)  The Hanged Man Rises  Sister Assassin (Sister Assassin, #1)

And here are some awesome new releases to look forward to! The three books above are also released in the UK in February. 

Geek Girl  The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)  Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)
Infinite Sky  Dead Romantic  Dance of Shadows (Dance of Shadows, #1)

Thanks for reading! Let me know in the comments what you've read this month - what you liked, what you didn't, or which of the above books you think I should read first!

Book Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Title: The Perks of Being a Wallflower  Author: Stephen Chbosky
Series: Standalone
Pages: 213
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Date of Publication: 30th August 2012 (reprint)
Source: Publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. the world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. of sex, drugs, and the rocky horror picture show. of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
My Thoughts:
So many people have been telling me to read Perks for about a year now, and with the movie coming up soon, I thought it was finally time. I mean, it looked quite good, and you have to read the book before the film, right?! Anyway, I decided I would read it on holiday when I had nothing else to do so I could read it all at once, and as it's really not very long this was pretty easy. While it didn't quite live up to my (probably too high) expectations…

Book Review: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Title: Moxie Author: Jennifer Mathieu
Series: n/a
Pages: 340
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
Date of Publication: 21st September 2017
Source: borrowed from Reading to Recover
Synopsis from Goodreads:
It's time to fight like a girl!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her high school teachers who think the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv's mum was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the '90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother's past and creates Moxie, a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She's just blowing off steam, but other girls respond and spread the Moxie message. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realises that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.
