Another month of 2016 has gone by, and I’m pretty happy with how many books I finished. Of course, being a bookworm, I wish the number were higher, but life happens. I finished nine books again this month (same as January) and wrote reviews for a few (see previous blog posts).
- Under Ground by Alice Rachel – 5/5 stars
- This was a book I received for review from the author, and I loved it! It was unique and the writing and plot made it a fast read. (Review posted on blog previously)
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – 5/5 stars
- I can’t believe I’ve been a bookworm all my life and an English major and minor and hadn’t read this until after graduation. I now understand why so many people really love this novel and author, and Elizabeth Bennet as a character, because I do too.
- Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol – 5/5 stars
- This graphic novel was unique and a quick read, and I definitely recommend it. (Review posted on blog previously)
- Deadpool Killustrated by Cullen Bunn – 5/5 stars
- This was everything I wanted and more. For a literature-obsessed bookworm, it was perfectly filled with characters I love and references to so many classics.
- Blankets by Craig Thompson – 5/5 stars
- This is an emotional graphic novel, but it’s so good and definitely worth the read. (Review posted on blog previously)
- Timekeeper by Alexandra Monir – 5/5 stars
- A great sequel to a book I loved in high school — Timeless by Alexandra Monir — and I recommend the duology to anyone interested in time travel YA such as Passenger by Alexandra Bracken or the Ruby Red series by Kirsten Gier.
- F U, Penguin: Telling Cute Animals What’s What by Matthew Gasteier – 3/5 stars
- This was a book recommended by Ashley, and it was a good fast read, but it would be better as a coffee table book rather than being read in one sitting.
- Time: Exploring the Unexplained by Time-Life Books – 5/5 stars
- This is another supernatural/paranormal book that I found at the thrift store. I’m so glad I picked it up because I can never get enough of these. This was a great book for an overview of many different topics in this broad range of subjects and would be a great starting point for getting into this genre.
- The Cupid Chronicles (The Wedding Planner’s Daughter #2) by Coleen Mortagh Paratore – 4/5 stars
- This book is a sequel to one I read in middle school, I believe, and I breezed through it in one sitting.
