February Wrap Up

February has been such an amazing month! I had a LOT of time to read and I enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks of vacation in Asia. I came home with one of the biggest book hauls in my life. 

Books read

I think I've never managed to read as many books in one month as this February. 8 books is my new record and I'm really proud of it! And now I just realised that this month has been a month of 4-star ratings... Well some pendle between 3.5 and 4.5 stars, but because you can only give them whole stars on goodreads they've all got the same amount...


P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han 
Prodigy by Marie Lu 
The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare 
Champion by Marie Lu 
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare 
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins 
I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson 
Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods by Rick Riordan 

Bobbi Brown Make Up Manual   

February Favourite

I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson was by far my favourite book in February and belongs now to my favourite contemporary novels. It was such an emotional ride to learn about Jude and Noah's life and it brought happy, but also sad tears to my eyes (and stained a few pages).

March TBR

Every bookworm has got their own to-be-read book pile. Mine is so big that I could dedicate a shelve to them (... but I'm a very organised person and I don't like it when my books aren't shelved in alphabetical order). Anyway, the following books I really hope to have read by the end of next month.


Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon, Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard & City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Your turn

I want to know what books you guys have read in February, what recommendations you have for new books and what's on your March TBR list. Just let me know in the comments.
