February + March Wrap Up

I just realised I haven't done a wrap-up since January, so this is a double wrap-up!

February - I had an awesome reading month in February - for such a short month I was over the moon to see how many books I'd read.

The Deepest Secret by Carla Buckley 
Schapelle Corby by Kathryn Bonella 
How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr 
This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready 
Anything to Have You by Paige Harbison
State of Emergency (Collapse Series #1) by Summer Lane
Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi
Zom-B Underground (Zom-B #2) by Darren Shan
Requiem (Delirium #3) by Lauren Oliver
Siege and Storm (The Grisha #2) by Leigh Bardugo
Cherry by Sara Wheeler
If You Stay (Beautifully Broken #1) by Courtney Cole
Golden by Jessi Kirby
In Velvet by Burt Weissbourd
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

Total pages read as at end of February - 10,510.  Woohooo - ahead for the year!.

March - Aaaaand it all camecrashing down.  March pretty much kicked my arse - work was insane and then in the last week I broke a tooth and could not for love or money get into a dentist for two days.  When I wasn't crying in pain I was floating around in a drug-induced haze - neither of which were very condusive to reading.
The Worlds We Make (Fallen World #3) by Megan Crewe
The Assault by Harry Mulisch
The Reapers are the Angels (Reapers #1) by Alden Bell
Into That Forest by Louis Nowra 
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Beautiful Music for Ugly Children by Kirstin Cronn-Mills
The Three by Sarah Lotz
Such Good Girls by R.D. Rosen 
Night by Elie Wiesel 
Miss Peregrine's House for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children #1) by Ransom Riggs

I also DNFed all over the place.  Before March I had 5 books on my permanent DNF shelf.  By the end I had 9.

Blazed by Jason Myers - read 96 pages - now I like dark books.  In fact, I LOVE dark books - the grittier the better, but this was just too much - and I hated the main character.
Dark Days by Kate Ormand - read 39 pages - it just felt so clunky - and way too fast - and I didn't believe a second of it.
The Distance Between Us by Kasie West - read 30 pages - I KNOW.  But I hated Caymen and her 'rich people are evil' speeches.
After the End (After the End #1) by Amy Plum - read 141 pages - I really didn't like the paranormal aspect.  Perhaps because I didn't EXPECT it, but it just drove me crazy.

I'm now nearly 1000 pages behind on my page goal for the year, but there's still LOADS of time to make up for it.  Bring it on, April!

  1. I hope April will be better for you! I've done pretty well this year, but it has felt like I was dragging. You read a pretty awesome variety. I had no idea that After The End had paranormal elements in it..that just seems odd.
