Week 13

Last week I was supposed to read Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. Unfortunately, I'm still on the holds list for it. Hopefully I'll get it soon.

This week I'm to read a book by an author I haven't read before. This wasn't hard to pick for since I live under a rock. I've chosen to read Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I've heard some great things about this book and I'm excited to get started on it.

Weeks 10 & 11

Last week I was to read a quartet, and I chose the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. In addition to the four books in the series, I read two novellas. There is one novella left in the series I haven't read yet, but I have it checked out and will be getting to it in a couple of days.

This week I was supposed to read a book with non-human characters. This is the first time I've read a book by Jennifer L. Armentrout, and I look forward to finishing the Lux series and reading more of her work.

Week 10:
#1 - The Iron King, 4 stars.
#1.5 - Winter's passage, 4 stars.
#2 - The Iron Daughter, 4 stars.
#3 - The Iron Queen, 5 stars.
#3.5 - Summer's Crossing, 4 stars.
#4 - The Iron Knight, 5 stars.

Week 11:
Obsidian, 4 stars

This coming week I'm supposed to read a book that will make me cry. I've chosen Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. I'm still on the holds list for this book, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

March TBR & Week 9

I read 17 books in February:

Austenland / Shannon Hale. 4 stars.
Schools Out - Forever / James Patterson. 5 stars.
Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports / James Patterson. 5 stars.
The Final Warning / James Patterson. 4 stars.
Max / James Patterson. 5 stars.
Fang / James Patterson. 5 stars.
Paper Towns / John Green. 5 stars.
An Abundance of Katherines / John Green. 5 stars.
The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend / Kody Keplinger. 5 stars.
The Raven Boys / Maggie Stiefvater. 5 stars
An Ideal Husband / Oscar Wilde. 5 stars.
The Hunger Games / Suzanne Collins. 5 stars.
Catching Fire / Suzanne Collins. 5 stars.
Mockingjay / Suzanne Collins. 5 stars.
Prince of Wolves / Quinn Loftis. 5 stars
The Archived / Victoria Schwab. 5 stars.
Incarnate / Jodi Meadows 5 stars.

I didn't read all of the books I had on my TBR because I had expiration dates for library books creep up on me.

My challenge for week 8 was to read a book with bad reviews. Because I had read it that week, and it has the lowest rating of the series on Goodreads, I'm counting The Final Warning by James Patterson for this.

My challenge for this week is to read a book set in high school. I've chosen To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han. I had intended this book for an earlier challenge but was on the holds list for it until recently.

March TBR:

To All the Boys I've Loved before / Jenny Han
the Lucky One / Nickolas Sparks
Angel / James Patterson
Nevermore / James Patterson
The Silver Linings Playbook / Matthew Quick
The Darkest Minds / Alexandra Bracken
The Fault in Our Stars / John Green
The Book Thief / Markus Zusak
The Goose Girl / Shannon Hale
The Selection / Kiera Cass
The Elite / Kiera Cass
Every Day / David Levithan
Looking for Alaska / John Green
Great Expectations / Charles Dickens
Anne of Green Gables / L.M. Montgomery
Obsidian / Jennifer L. Armentrout
The Iron King / Julie Kagawa
The Iron Daughter / Julie Kagawa
The Iron Queen / Julie Kagawa
The Iron Knight / Julie Kagawa
Hopeless / Colleen Hoover

As a side note: The books I read in February were either wonderful, or I need to reign in my star giving. I gave five stars to fifteen out of seventeen books. Interesting...
