February 2012 Round-Up

So I decided I'd like to do a little round up post at the end of each month, just to list everything I've read that month, what I liked best, what I didn't like so much, that kind of stuff. It's more for me than for you, but I thought you might like to see because I like to see what other people have been reading... ;P So here's what I've read this month!

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl  Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)  Vixen

1. Falling Fast by Sophie McKenzie
2. Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber
3. The Kissing Game by Aidan Chambers
4. The Killables by Gemma Malley
5. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
6. Wonder by RJ Palacio
7. Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters by Meredith Zeitlin
8. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
9. Vixen by Jillian Larkin

These are just the complete books I've read this month, I'm currently half way through Forgiven by Jana Oliver, so technically this month I've read 9 and a half books! Not too bad, I don't think, though I would have liked to have read more, especially seeing as half term was in the middle of February... 

Anyway, I did some (not-so) speedy mathematics and I have come up with some useless but hopefully interesting information... 

Number of pages read in February: 2874
Average number of pages per book: 319 

But that's all I could think of to do with my maths ;P So, I'll announce my favourite book of the month: 

AU REVOIR, CRAZY EUROPEAN CHICK by Joe Schreiber



My review of this will go up on its release date which is 5th March! All other reviews of books I read this month will also be going up some time in the first couple of weeks of March :)

Here are some of the books I'll be reading in March, the ones I'm especially excited for!

Spellcaster (Spellbound, #2)  Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test, #2)  Dark Storm

And lastly, I thought I could do a little something to get you guys to comment more. I totally understand that you probably read hundreds of blogs and you don't have time to comment, or sometimes you just can't be bothered (like me...) so I'm going to, at the end of every month, post who's commented on posts the most in the month! Like a commenting competition, but I don't have prizes because I'm broke ;P So this month, it was...

BookLuvr Mindy!

Thanks for commenting! Do you like this idea? Would you comment more if I made this a monthly thing? I don't know if it'll make a difference, and I may well forget, but let me know, in the comments, your thoughts :) I could buy like, sweets and send them to you, if you wanted? ;P Can you even send food in the post? (UK only, sadly) I don't know, just whatever you want to say, say it in the comments! ;D Thanks for reading!

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

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...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author 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 t
