Whew! February went by fast and I'm sad to say I didn't read as much as I wanted to even with the extra day :(
Anyway, here are the books that I did manage to read. The list of books that I want to read in March will be posted tomorrow. Tell me what books you've read this month and what are your favorites?
Without anymore distractions, here are the books I read:
I will have my list of books I plan on reading in March up tomorrow by this time so keep a look out for that.
Let's be friends! Go add me on your social media pages. I love talking and meeting new friends. It's a great way to keep in touch between posts.
Anything you want by Geoff Herbach.
Genre: YA (romance)
Publication date: May 1, 2016
Format: I received the book for a honest review from Netgalley
(You can preorder the book on Amazon here)
I’m not going to lie, the first 3 chapters of the book were really boring. The topic of the book is a good one but not exactly relatable. I really hate to hate books because every book takes a tremendous amount of effort to write and dissing the author just makes them feel bad so I will try not to say too many bad things. Once I got further into the book, I started realizing how much more I liked the book.
At first I thought, this is sort of predictable, a guy likes a girl, they decide to have sex and the girl gets pregnant. Boy was I wrong. That was only the very baseline of the plot.
The book deals with some very sensitive topics such as death of family members, smart kids who get in trouble, drunk driving, the possibility of jail and many more.
Since this is my first discussion post on this blog, I thought, why not write about my memory of my first book. This is mostly a trip down memory lane for me but the day I learned to read and found my favorite books (of the time) seems like it’s just yesterday.
I remember one day when I was in kindergarten and all the other kids all already knew how to read and the teacher was trying extra hard trying to teach me how to read. No matter what my teacher tried, the words on the page were all so foreign to me. The pictures were also just a huge blur of colors. Then when I went home that same day, my mom brought me these really thin chapter books and started reading them to me. The books were Junie B. Jones and I immediately fell in love with her. She had so much in common with me and it was in that second that all the words on the page became sharper and I understood what the letters and words meant.
Junie B. Jones was my favorite book series up until I was in 5th grade. Of course, I read other books too but Junie B. was my bestest (excuse the grammar) friend that I would ever have. I never had any friends in elementary school so I found books to be my friends. I obtained the entire set of all the books as soon as possible and I would never leave the house without carrying at least 4 or 5 of the books. She wore those iconic purple glasses, which coincidentally, I had glasses the same color; she was short and so was I; one of her classmates were mean to her and I had a classmate who didn’t like me very much either. She was the type of girl who got into boatloads of trouble, something that I would never attempt. I was more of the goody-two-shoes of my classes so Junie B. brought out the daring and more aggressive side in me. Junie B is the reason I did things in elementary school. She was sassy and (more or less) street smart. She didn’t listen to the rules and instead, made up her own. She was my idol, the person I wanted to grow up being (which is ironic because I was already older than she was).
What I guess I’m trying to say is that reading has become my best friend. I have a couple of questions for y’all. Do you remember reading your first book? Tell me about it in the comments or on social media.
Forgotten Princess by M.R. Pritchard
Genre: Romance, Teen and YA
Publication date: January 20, 2016
Format: I received the book from the author.
This review took me a lot longer than i anticipated so I apologize for putting it up so late. I really loved this book so I hope you will read it after reading my review. I always love discovering new authors that I haven't heard of before so this was one of those times. This book is part of 'The Royals of Monterra' kindle world.
It's been 4 days of February and I still haven't posted this. Aghhh!!! Anyway, here are the books that I want to read this month. (Doesn't mean that I will get around to reading them all). This is just a few of the books and I'll update the post when I find more books.
I was also thinking about writing some posts other than just reviews. All the other blogs that I now follow usually do discussion topics so I was thinking I could try that. What do you think?
(Also, you should all go follow me on my social media and on Bloglovin')
I promised y'all the list of books I read in January so here it is:
I also wanted to let you all know that since it's been a full month since school has started again, I have been swamped already with homework so there may not be as many posts as I anticipated earlier this year. I have taken on another ARC and have two other books on my hands that I was supposed to have been finished with already. Nonetheless, I will still be posting this month and I have another review lined up for next week. The other two books I have been reading will have their review posted sometime in the next 3-4 weeks so keep a look out for those.
