I know we are almost done with the month but I wanted to share my February TBR. Like last month I have only four books on my TBR list for the month. Since this month is Valentine’s Day most of the books I picked are romance novels.

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins: This is the last book in the Anna and the French Kiss series. I am so excited to finish this series but I haven’t heard that many good this about this book.

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West: When I heard the plot of this book I knew that I had to read it. It is about a boy and girl that start exchange anonymous letters to each. It sounds like such a cute love story with an old school kind of twist to it.

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows: I don’t know much about this story but I have heard it is a pretty funny story. However, I have seen very mixed reviews on this book so I’m interested in seeing what I think about it. This is the first in a series but the next book doesn’t come out until 2018 so if I do end up liking it I’ll have to wait a while to continue on with the series.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: I am going to try my best to finish this audiobook since it has been on my tbr for two months now.

Reading Wrap-Up | January 2017

Now that’s its February it is time to do my January wrap up. I didn’t do two bad in the month of January since I finished reading 3 out of the 4 books on my tbr for the month. Below are my thoughts on the books that I read and my rating for them.

This is What Happiness Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith: I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars. I liked the concept but I couldn’t get behind the writing. It was very slow pace and the love story wasn’t captivating. I know this is the first book in a series yet I not sure I’ll be picking up the second book.

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: I gave this book 3.5 out of 5 stars. I love Perkins is writing which is why I was what I consider generous in its rating. Honestly, I didn’t like the man character in this book which is a bummer since I loved, the first book in the series, Anna and the French Kiss. I didn’t feel like the book was relatable at all and it just frustrated me to no end.

Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen: I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was actually a sad tale about a brother and sisters love for one another. It was a quick read and a good story but was nothing like Frozen.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: I started this book and are halfway through, but I had to put it down because I just wasn’t into the writing or story. I decided to get it on audio book and hope to finish it in February. So far I am not a fan of the story or main character but hopefully that will change.

There you have it my January book wrap-up. Let me know in the comments below if you want a review on any of these books. Also, don’t forget to follow the blog for more post.
