So a few weeks back I posted a 2016 reading list. If you haven’t read that yet, I suggest you go back and do. I decided that I’d do a book review for all the books that I’ve read so far in February.
The first one I read was Forever by Chanda Hahn and I absolutely adored it. As you may remember it was the last in the Unfortunate Fairy Tale series. It was amazing; it wrapped up every loose end and the ending was perfect and I absolutely loved it. If you enjoy fae and fairytales I think you’ll enjoy this series which is a wonderful twist on the Grimm Legend.

Next was another sequel to a book I liked a lot. This one was one my more female oriented books, but whatever. PS I Still Love You by Jenny Han is the sequel to To All the Boys I Loved Before. Obviously you should read that one first, but I liked the second one just as much. The writing style of this author is relatable and readable and I highly enjoyed the main character, Lara Jean. If you like a relaxing chick lit that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat in a very original way, you’ll love this one.

The List by Siobhan Vivian was a very insightful view into the social workings of teenagers. While I enjoyed it a lot, I found the reading level to be a lot lower than I expected. So I guess if you’re looking for an easy read, this is a good one for you. It was poignant and sagacious and a page-turner but overall it was far too easy.

And the last one I read this month is The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B by Terese Toten. I really liked the realism and the uniqueness. As I said before, I do have a touch of OCD (not as bad as the characters in the book, but definitely still there) and I appreciated the highlights of the ups and downs that are associated with the disease along with just life in general. Very good and very inspiring.

So those are the ones I’ve completed so far. I am working my way through 1984 and Frankenstein so hopefully those will be in the next review.
Thanks for reading,
