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: 


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!

Book Review: Insight by Jamie Magee

Title: Insight Author: Jamie Magee Series: Insight #1 Pages: 314 Date of UK Publications: July 20th 2010 Source: Received free for a blog tour/event Synopsis from Goodreads: Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift. My Thoughts: Insight was a good book. The plot was well thought out, and the characters were complex and real. It was a strong debut novel,
