Monthly Wrap Up

February 2017 Wrap Up

Hello bookworms!!

Once again I can’t believe we have already made it through another month. Time sure is flying by. This month was not a good reading month for me at all. I started the month off pretty good but then I got to a book that I was trying to force myself to read and after that I just haven’t been in the mood to read. I ended up only reading 3 out of the 8 books I had set for my TBR for this month. I did however start on a 4th book I just haven’t finished it yet and I want finish it until next month so I will talk about that one in March plus I also had a book that I DNFed.

Books I read

img_0386-1img_0397-1img_0436

Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James (I will be doing a series review once I have finished rereading them)

Parker by Jillian Quinn Review I received an eARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Tell Me You Need Me by Joya Ryan Review

Books I DNF

Carve The Mark by Veronica Roth Review

Favorite book of the month

So all three of the books I read this month ended up being 5 star reads for me. Like I said in last months wrap up Fifty shades is an obvious answer because I have re-read them like 6 times now and I don’t want to go with the obvious so that leaves me with Parker by Jillian Quinn and Tell Me You Need Me by Joya Ryan and I just can’t choose between the two. I loved them both for different reasons. Sorry I can’t pick one or the other guys.

Giveaways

I didn’t mention this last month because I didn’t even thank about it to be honest so I thought I would tell you all the books I won since December.

Back To Good by Laura Benson- This was the book that I found out I won back in December but I didn’t get it until this month.

Corrupt Me by Jillian Quinn- I participated in the blog tour for this book in January and was entered to win a signed paperback and I was chosen. I literally squealed when I found out that I had won it.

Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall- Last month I participated in the 24in48 read a thon. Every few hours there were little challenges and one of the challenges was to come up with book spine poetry. I did it not thinking I had done a very good job coming up with a book spine poem but evidently someone liked it because I won.

Echoes by Shannon Rieger- You know how when people do blog tours on their blog there are sometimes giveaways involved. Well I had entered one of those giveaways and forgot that I had and when I got the email saying I had won I was shocked. I cant remember whose blog I entered on because I hadn’t started writing them down yet so I am sorry I cant give a shout out to that person.

I also found out that I won a giveaway from Zuky @ BookBum for her 100 followers giveaway for $25 Book Depository order. Thank you so much Zuky I am still in shock that I won. The books I picked were A Monster Calls, The Outsiders, and It Ends with Us.

I am so grateful for the authors and for Zuky for choosing me as the winners for their giveaways. Normally I never get chosen as the winner for anything but this year has started off amazingly. Thank you again to all of you it really means the world to me.
