  1. 22 books?!?!?! I’m so jealous!! I wish I could read that fast… maybe my TBR pile wouldn’t be so big if I could!! I loved Fangirl… you might be the only person who didn’t like it LOL!! I also really want to read Amanda Knox’s book and The Breathing series!! Good month for you 🙂

    • Haha I gave it 4 stars!! I didn’t hate it! I just didn’t love it as much as I thought I was going to, based on all the hype. I really enjoyed Waiting to be Heard, I’d definitely recommend that. And the Breathing series was so addicting! The first book is BY FAR the best, though.

  2. Wow I can’t believe you read 22 books in one month, that is very amazing! Imagine the amount of books you could get through so quickly! I’m a huge VA fan and I had no idea about Homecoming, thanks for bringing that to my attention, Enjoy all of your reads!

    • Thanks! This was a big month for me…definitely the most I’ve ever read in that amount of time. Usually I read about 15ish. I guess I was just in a reading mood, haha!

  3. holy smokes you read a lot! One month in and already ahead of your goal is pretty sweet 🙂 LOVED Fangirl and World After!

    Cheers to February!

    • Hahaha I guess so! I wasn’t expecting to read that much, but then it just kind of happened. I didn’t love Fangirl as much as I thought I was going to, but I still really liked it. And World After was really good, too! I need more from that series!

    • I actually didn’t LOVE Fangirl as much as I thought I was going to, but I still really liked it! I think that it was probably more of an “it’s me, not you”-type situation, since I’m not really a contemporary girl usually.

  4. You read a LOT! Well done!

    World After is one of those I was practically salivating after, and then I got stalled and still haven’t gotten around to it. We’ve already talked about American Gods and I’m definitely a fantasy addict, so I’m hoping I will like it!

    • Thanks! Yeah, haha, I had the same problem with World After. I preordered it, but I JUST ended up reading it. I don’t know why I was procrastinating on it so badly. You probably will like American Gods more than me. I’m not a huge fantasy person, so that was probably the problem.
