February Wrap Up – It’s all about books!

I bought two paperbacks this month – YAY!!! (that’s pretty awesome since I’m a devoted Kindle reader=)

Sparrow and Vicious from LJ Shen.

They’ll come with me to the Golden Gate Authors Event in San Francisco to be signed. I honestly can’t wait. It’s my first author event EVER so I’m super excited.

I read a good amount of books this month – don’t ask me the number, I don’t count anymore. My Goodreads challenge keeps track of my overall numbers (I’m at 59 books, 14 books ahead of schedule, and 20% into my challenge).

From the many books I read in February these books really stood out ….


PUCKED OFF by Helena Hunting (my review here)
Lance was absolutely adorable – of course only in the most manly and swoony kind of way.:D

Fake Fiancée by Ilsa Madden-Mills (review here)
Fake Fiancée was a wonderful read, excellent plot, wonderful characters, I really enjoyed it!! So much that I would recommend it to anyone that likes to read solid love-stories with mature and deeply layered characters.



Dirty Filthy Rich Boys (Dirty Duet 0.5) by Laurelin Paige (my review is here)
This book almost gave me a heart attack!! And to think that it was only a TEASER!!!!

Amour Amour (Aerial Ethereal) by Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie (review here)
Love their books – I have too wait much too long for each book, so in between I’ll reread some of my favorites. The sisters have a wonderful writing style and just fabulously unique plots and fascinating three dimensional characters.



Real Good Man & Real Good Love by Meghan March (review here)
I fell in love with Meghan March’s books this month. I think I must have read 8 books so far and I can’t wait to read her latest coming out in March – Take Me Back.


I had a couple disappointments as well. Books that were hyped to no end and naturally came with high expectations but just couldn’t deliver. I either didn’t get into the plot or couldn’t connect with the characters. It’s incredibly hard to admit such disappointments especially if those books were written by favorite authors – it’s almost like I let them down – sigh!

  1. 14 books ahead of schedule on your GR challenge…HOW?! And here I am thinking I was doing alright with being 4 books ahead on my challenge, haha. I’ve been meaning to binge-read the Pucked series for months now and after seeing the cover for Pucked Off and hearing all about Lance, I’m going to binge-read the series next month. I hope you have fun at the Golden Gate Authors Event! 😀

  2. OMG – I don’t know either. I started out the year slow, was even behind with books, but the last few weeks I read three books that were broken into installments which helped a LOT 😀
    You must read the Pucked series – it’s LOL hilarious at times. I’m going to the authors event with no expectations just to get a few books signed. Will report how it went.:)
