February Wrap Up ’17

feb-22

February was a pretty good month for me. I read a few audio books, graphic novels, and eARCs. A pretty good mixture I’d say.

fangirlrr  everythingleads  inexplicable

arianddantedsu

  • Fangirl | 3 stars – This book was good, but the plot was too slow for me. It’s very much character driven but I kept zoning out a few times. Also I don’t remeber if I included this in my wrap up last month? I finished it at the beginning of February but I don’t remember.
  • Everything Leads to You | 4 stars – This book was all kinds of cute! I loved it.
  • Aristotle and Dante | 4 stars – I am glad I finally picked up this book! I am so in love with Ari and Dante!
  • The Inexplicable Logic of My Life | 3 stars – After some thought I realized I had a few problems with this book and had to drop my rating to 3 stars. Though I still very much liked the story and the characters, there was too many stereotypes and offensive sentences. They bothered while reading and I failed to mention them in my review. I updated my review so if you’re interested, you can read it here.
  • The Bone Witch | DNF – I forgot to picture this book because I ended up having to DNF it. I didn’t finish this book because I was too confused and it was too slow to keep my interest. I am bummed. You can read my review here

The audio books

cityofglass  13reasonstherunawayqueen

  • City of Glass | 5 stars – reread and I loved it!
  • 13 Reasons Why | 2 stars – I didn’t like this book. I don’t even know why Hannah included Clay in her little tapes game. Oh well, I just wanted to read it before the tv show.
  • The Runaway Queen | 1 star – oof this was also a reread and I only listened to it because I don’t remember much about the bane chronicles. But listening through this I quickly remembered why I didn’t like this novella lol. It was just so boring. The novellas that included TID were my favorite and I should have just listened to those instead. But this was narrated by Athelstan from Vikings so I am not completely complaining 😉

The graphic novels

Nimona | 4 stars – SO CUTE! I loved the story and the artwork!

Ms Marvel Vol 1 | 4 stars – OH MY GOD THIS WAS FANTASTIC!  I loved that Ms. Marvel is a Muslim teen and this it’s fantastic that she is included. I can’t wait to read more because I am ashamed how behind I am.

In Real Life | 3 stars – this was cute. I enjoyed the artwork but I felt like the plot was a little flat. The ending was too quickly resolved. Which I guess is okay considering it;s a graphic novel but I don’t know. Still entertaining though.

the Poetry

milkandhoney

I absolutely loved the little doodles that went with some poems and thought they added a special touch. However, some poems didn’t really scream original to me. Some were just a small sentence of things that I’ve seen quotes twitters tweet over and over. But I still really liked this poetry collection and can’t wait to read more.

    I still haven’t written my wrap up but I’ll post it tomorrow. So happy for those 5 stars for City of Glass as well as I’m happy to hear you loved Ari and Dante.
    Milk and Honey has been EVERYWHERE and I have been wanting to get into poetry and I just want to read it, though I would have to wait for it to be in Spanish and sometimes poetry is not the same when it’s translated. Maybe I should try reading it in English but it scares me a little!
    Hope you have a great March!

      Can’t wait to read it, Aldii! Yes City of Glass is even better the second time around. I really enjoyed reading this series again.
      I got Milk and Honey for the exact same reason. I kept seeing it everywhere and I just had to get it. I want to read more poetry too. I guess you can try reading the English. Most of the poems were really short too…idk if that will be a problem for you?
      Have a great March to you too!!! 😀
