Series Update: February 2016

My main goal for 2016 is to catch up on as many series as possible. This is my update for the last month, I didn’t read a ton but I’m working on it!

I have completed 4 books since my last update in January, 3 of these books were part of series.

Completed series – 0

Series installments – 2

Fairest by Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5)

The Walking Dead, Vol. 9: Here We Remain

Started new series – 1

Killing Sarai by J.A. Redmerski (In the Company of Killers, #1)

 

Yearly Tally

Completed series – 0

Series installments – 4

Started new series – 2

 

Again, the whole goal is to complete series which means I need to step it up this coming month. I am in the middle of a lot of series, meaning I have more than just one book left to read to complete them, so the series installments are getting me much closer.

I hope only start one new series, complete at least 2 series, and read 4 installments by the next update. Wish me luck!

 

Currently reading Winter by Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)

Want to Read: February 2016

I think everything is going to be stacked against my reading schedule this month with moving, school, and the fact that it’s a short month so take all of this information lightly!

Here’s what I’ve got my eye on the most this month:

  • The Walking Dead, Vol. 9: Here We Remain by Robert Kirkman
  • Winter by Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)
  • The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken (The Darkest Minds, #1) (reread)
  • Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
  • Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy, #5)
  • Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy, #6)

I’ve already got my nose in Winter which is a massive book and I’d be glad just getting through that! Are you sticking to your 2016 goals so far this year?

Wrap Up: January 2016

The end of this month really snuck up on me. I started my blogging year strong and have now been absent for a week or two. My boyfriend and I have been searching for our first rental house and we found one and now we’re in the process of getting everything together to move! We move in March 1st so I’m not making any promises for my activity on this site for February or early March!

That being said, I had a really good reading month in January and I’m so excited to share it with you!

I read a total of 6 books

  1. Do Not Disturb by A.R. Torre (Deanna Madden, #2). 4 stars.
  2. Keeping Her by Cora Carmack (Losing It, #1.5). 3 stars.
  3. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins (Rebel Belle, #1). 4 stars.
  4. You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero. 2 stars.
  5. Killing Sarai by J.A. Redmerski (In the Company of Killers, #1). 5 stars.
  6. Fairest by Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5). 5 stars.

 

I read a total of 1,590 pages and had an average rating of 3.8 stars.

If you want to see some of my thoughts on these books check out my earlier posts January 2016 – Part 1 and January 2016 – Part 2.

I will have my February TBR posted as soon as I can get it together, for sure in the next week. I hope you all had a great January, but if you didn’t it’s not too late to make it a great year!

 

Wrap Up: January 2016 – Part 2

My quick thoughts on the books I read the second half of January!

 

You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero 

I got this book as a gift from my sister and is very much a book that she would enjoy herself. She loves reading self-help books and we have talked about how it’s just not what I’m most interested in. That being said I just felt like this book wasn’t for me. I ended up giving it 2 stars. If you are a fan of self-help you would probably enjoy this so much more. (If you’re reading this Erika you can borrow it and read it if you still want to!!)

 

Killing Sarai by J.A. Redmerski (In the Company of Killers, #1)

I loved this book so much! I decided to read this when Lainey and Riley created their group to read along with the series. If you’re interested in the series you can still jump in, they’re reading it through March! Here’s the group! This first book was all about Sarai trying to escape from the drug lord she has been with since she was young. The person she ends up with ends up showing her a lot about the dangerous world she has been involved in. That’s probably not the best description but TRUST ME PLEASE, this book was amazing! 5 stars!!

 

Fairest by Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5)

This novella is all about our villain Queen Levana. It was interesting and gave a lot of insight but in no way made me feel bad or sympathize with her. It was great backstory and it kept me hooked and my love for this series as a whole continues with this 5 star installment. This also gave us information on who Winter is which really just got me more excited to finally get to the final book!

 

I’ll catch you up on my entire January wrap up and stats in my full monthly wrap up shortly!

If you’ve read any of these books please discuss with me in the comments!
