February 2017 To Be Read

The plan was to not pick too many books for this month, because of my reading/blog pause in January. But guess what this TBR is on the larger side for me. I always over estimate myself with these TBR lists haha, but it is great to have different options. 


Books I Want To Continue Reading


The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch

Book 3 in The Gentleman Bastards

80% read. I am almost finished with this book. It is the last one in The Gentleman Bastards series that is currently out. I’m in LOVE with this series and this book, and I don’t want it to end. This book series, especially book 1 and 3 is incredible and have become my all time favorite books.


Morning Star by Pierce Brown

Book 3 in Red Rising

28% read. I took a break from this book because of the Biannual Bibliothon, and didn’t pick it up again. Now I want to continue reading this book and hopefully finish it in February. I really enjoy this series, and so far this book is really exciting.


Final Girls by Riley Sager

16% read. I received this book as an eArc from Netgalley. I don’t know what I feel about it yet, but I want to continue reading it.


Books I Want To Start


The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber

Every month I’m going to randomly pick one book from my Beat The Backlist Challenge list that I have to read. This month I randomly generated the letter F, and I picked The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber to read.


The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan 

Book 3 in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians

I need to have some books that is easy and fun to read this month. I really like this middle grade fantasy series and I bet a lot of you do too.


The Miserable Mill by Lemony Snicket

Book 4 in A Series of Unfortunate Events

The Austere Academy by Lemony Snicket

Book 5 in A Series of Unfortunate Events

The Ersatz Elevator by Lemony Snicket

Book 6 in A Series of Unfortunate Events

The Vile Village by Lemony Snicket

Book 7 A Series of Unfortunate Events

I have so much fun reading this children’s series, even though I’m an adult and not the target audience for it. I really like the humor and the narrator in this series, and that the story often gets really dark. I wish I had read the books as a kid, I would probably be shit scared of Count Olaf and his companions. The books are really short so I’m planning on reading 4 of the books in February. I want to read all of the books in the series before I watch the new Netflix show.  


The Girl From Old Nichol by Betty Annand

I received this book as an eArc from Netgalley. I have started it (because this post is a bit late). I don’t know if I like it so far.


THE SNOW CHILD BY EOWYN IVEY

This book was on my TBR last month, but I didn’t pick it up. I hope to get to it this month. I really want to read it before the winter is over.

January 2017 Monthly Wrap Up + I’m back

This month started out really well, I read a lot and posted 3-4 posts to my blog every week. I also participated in the Biannual Bibliothon Winter 2017 Readathon, and had a lot of fun with that. Halfway through the month I started not feeling well. I didn’t have the energy to post anything on my blog or read books, so I had to take a break from everything book and blog related. This is slowly getting better now and I hope I’m back 100% soon. This blog hiatus totally killed my posting plan so I’ll be posting topics in February that should have been out earlier, like: Favorite Reads of 2016, Dystopian Bingo and Reviews.

Over to what I did manage to read in January. I read a total of 4 books, one essay and one book that i DNF. I have read 3 books that fits the Beat The Backlist Challenge.

I read a total of 1621 pages this month.

What I Read


Deadlight Jack by Mark Onspaugh

Book 2 in The Faceless One

FULL REVIEW HERE!  I really liked this book. It was fun to read about two men in their 70 fighting supernatural cases. 3.5 stars

3-5stjerner


We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This essay is such a great introduction to feminism and it is very easy and quick to read. I recommend everyone to read it. 5 stars

5stjerner

Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Book 1 in Stalking Jack the Ripper

I love the premise of this book and I had high hopes for it. The story started out really good and exciting, but after a while it got a bit boring. This book was just ok, not great and not terrible either. You can read more of my thoughts about it in my Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up HERE. 3 stars

Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven

This is now one of my all time favorite Young Adult Contemporaries. I devoured this book, it was so incredible good. I LOVE the character Libby, she is AMAZING! I really connected with her. Jack’s face blindness was interesting to read about as well. I really want to read the author’s other book asap. 4.5 stars

4-5stjerner

Sense And Sensibility by Jane Austen

This is my second try to read a Jane Austen book. I DNF this book at 30%. I found the book to be really boring, it just didn’t grab me. I want to like it because it is a well known classic, but I just don’t find it fun to read.  1.5 stars

1-5stjerner


Heartless by Marissa Meyer

I love Marissa Meyers other series The Lunar Chronicles, so I highly anticipated this book. This book is a fun read, I really love the Alice in wonderland world and some parts of the story. I also really love her writing. I just didn’t cared for the romance. If you like ya romance book with fantasy elements, and you are interested in another story set in the Alice world I highly recommend this book. 4 stars
