February Confessions

I don't know what it's like where you live, but this month in Pennsylvania has sort of been torture if you are a lover of summer, like me.  We have had soooo much snow, ice and cold temperatures. The "Polar Vortex" (that phrase makes me want to barf) that keeps visiting can just get lost. I love a good snow storm, but after this winter, I am definitely more than ready for spring.  Do you guys agree? Here's what I read this snowy February:

Books Read in February:
1. Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg - 4.5 out of 5 stars
2. Under a Jeweled Sky by Alison McQueen - 4 out of 5 stars
3.  My Life with the Walter Boys by Ali Novak - 3.5 out of 5 stars
4.  Fallen Beauty by Erika Robuck - 4 out of 5 stars
5.  City of Jasmine by Deanna Raybourn - 3.5 out of 5 stars
6.  The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns #2) - 5 out of 5 stars (Review to come)
7.  The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan - 4 out of 5 stars (Review to come)
Didn't Finish: The Summer I Found You by Jolene Perry

1.  Favorite Book: The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns #2) by Rae Carson- I am loving this fantasy series and The Crown of Embers, even though it was the second book in the series, was awesome and didn't disappoint. There's no sophomore slump here.

2.  Biggest Surprise: Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg - I absolutely loved this book. I knew I would enjoy it (love Elizabeth Eulberg) but this one really hit a home run for me. It had me getting all nostalgic for Pacey and Joey. *sigh*

3.  Biggest Dissapointment: I enjoyed City of Jasmine, but I was hoping for a little more romance in this book.

4.  Favorite Post: Books That Will Make You Swoon  - I mean who doesn't love a good swoon worthy read, especially around Valentine's Day?

5.  Favorite Part of February: My favorite part of this month was spending Valentine's Day with favorite people, but I'm not going to lie. February is my least favorite month and I am so glad it's over. Now spring better bring it! I'm ready!


  1. I ordered Better Off Friends the other day - can't wait to get reading that one! I am so ready for February to be over too. The weather has been awful! The upside is that today it's sunny, so I'm hoping March will be a good month weather wise! Have a good weekend! I'll be in touch to discuss Scandal!

    1. Ohhhh…I can't wait to hear your thoughts…I hope you like it! I hear you. The weather here has been terrible. I am hoping it warms up soon, but we are supposed to get more snow Sunday/Monday. :( I am in total denial. Thanks for visiting and tweet me later about Scandal! :)

  2. Yay! I'm so glad you loved Crown of Embers Christina! Despite my rocky start with the first part of book one, that series quickly became one of my favorites. I can't wait to read your full review! I really need to read Better Off Friends as well, it just sounds so cute and I'm a fan of Elizabeth Eulberg:)

    1. Yes, I actually liked book two more than book one, which is unusual in a series. I hope you get time to read Better Off Friends…it was one of my faves of the year so far. Thanks for visiting, Jenny!

  3. Seriously, I'm SO sick of Mr. Winter right now. I wish I could slap some sense into him and send him packing.

    1. I know!!! I agree! We are getting more snow on Sunday/Monday. I can't wait for warmer weather…at least I am getting a lot of reading time in. :) Thanks for dropping by, Juju.

  4. The Crown of Embers definitely delivers - Carson knows how to write a sequel!

    I'm also glad February is over, I'm ready for March!

    1. You are SO right about that, Lea. Your reviews are what initially got me interested in this series, so thank you! I am so ready for spring as well. Thanks for visiting!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
