Overall Reflection:
Well it's certainly been a productive month reading-wise. I also used this month to catch up on books that have been on my TBR pile for a while. Hallowed was the only book I read this month that wasn't on my current TBR list (but it really should have been). So yay! for paring down said pile! The Darkest Powers Trilogy was just as amazing as everyone said. Thank you to all who recommend it! I gobbled up all three books in a very short amount of time. Andrea Cremer made a comeback in the Nightshade series with Bloodrose. Very reminiscent of Nightshade. Wither was an addicting book, but the polygamous relationships were a little off-putting to me. Curious as to where the series will go next. Cynthia Hand has won me over with her Unearthly series. I can. not. wait. for the next book in the series!!! Sarah Ockler has stolen my heart. Ever since Fixing Delilah I have been a big fan. Bittersweet was a solid, coming of age tale that completely took my breath away. Overall, it's been a strong reading month and a great start to the year. Sadly, my reading rate will most likely decrease. School has started up again. Also, I got a new job (my dream job actually). I have lot's to learn in both areas, so sadly my reading is going to take a backseat for a while. Keep checking back. I'll try to post as often as I can.


  1. Awesome! 8 books? Good job :) Good luck with February!

  2. I'm looking forward to reading Wither. The whole Polygamous thing will be interesting. I hope it's portrayed in a negative light. I don't think it will bother me so much that way.

  3. I read The Summoning a while back, but never got around to reading the last two books. I have Bittersweet on my shelf, and really need to read that soon!:)

  4. I love the Darkest Powers Trilogy and its one of the few series that I've finished reading.
