February 2013 Wrap Up

Hello and welcome to my wrap up for February! I've done really badly this month. I guess it's the shortest month of the year so that's my excuse. A crappy one, I know... Anyway. Here's what I read in February!

The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)  Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)  The Hanged Man Rises

1. The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead
2. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
3. The Hanged Man Rises by Sarah Naughton
4. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson (reread) (link to old review)

I really enjoyed The Indigo Spell and just like the previous book in the Bloodlines series, The Golden Lily, it ended on a huge cliffhanger that's left me needing book four now! Scarlet was really good, although not quite as good as Cinder I really enjoyed it. It took me two weeks though, not sure what happened there. The Hanged Man Rises was really good, and I have a guest post from the author here, as well as my review which is linked above. Lastly, I'm rereading The Name of the Star because I've forgotten everything that happens at the end and I'm going to read The Madness Underneath next. I can't wait - these books are so awesome and YOU REALLY HAVE TO READ THEM. So obviously, my favourite book of the month is:

THE NAME OF THE STAR by Maureen Johnson

The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1)

Number of pages read this month: 1504
Average number of pages per book: 376

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

The Madness Underneath (Shades of London, #2)  Requiem (Delirium, #3)  Zom-B City (Zom-B, #3)

And here are some other books that are being released in the UK in March!

Hidden (Guardians of Time, #1)    
    Girl of Nightmares (Anna, #2)

I also thought I would mention that I have a guest post from Sarah Naughton, author of The Hanged Man Rises, talking about what she thinks of ghosts. I also wrote a review of the book here, and both of them need comments... If you have time, I'd really appreciate it!

Also, lastly, I was interviewed today by the awesome Lucy from Queen of Contemporary, so if you'd like to check that out here's the link!

What have you read this month? Did you like it, did you not? What are you looking forward to reading next month? Let me know in the comments!

  1. It seems like everyone's reading progress slowed down in February! I'm so excited for Zom-B City ADJSLFLSG SO. EXCITED.

  2. Wait, Girl of Nightmares comes in March? Thanks for the headsup :)
    REQUIEM!! It's not one of my favourite series, but I'd love to know how it ends. I really want to read The Hanged Man Rises and the first of the Tom Clempson books. Hope March reading will be good!

  3. I've read 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson (it was a few years ago) and enjoyed it and so I'm really hoping to read more by her soon. I'm glad you liked it! :)

  4. Great books, Bella! I have The Name of the Star and Hidden on my TBR pile, they both sound amazing. I really want to read Requiem! :)

    I am currently reading Hidden Among Us and it is... okay :P It still has potential for a good ending so I'm hanging on to it. I have Anna Dressed in Blood on my TBR pile and it looks great, so enjoy Girl of Nightmares.
    Happy reading :)

    PS. I found your blog through your interview with Lucy! :) I am also a Nerdfighter and fan of Four and Augustus - YAY :D

  5. It isn't always about the amount of books you read, as long as you enjoy the ones you've read, right? :D

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...

Synopsis from Goodreads:Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!

Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in the right direction. But with social media…

SERIES REVIEW: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Hello! Welcome to my appreciation post for one of my favourite series - The Illuminae Files!


I'm going to try and keep it non-spoilery but be cautious if you've only read Illuminae and/or Gemina
THE FACTS: Series title: The Illuminae Files
Series authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Rock the Boat
Series completion date: 13th March, 2018

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results…
