In today’s post, I will be telling you guys the books that I read in February and March. Let’s just get into it, hope you enjoy.

1)  Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

This is an East-Asian reimagining of the Evil Queen story from Snow White.  I thought this was such an originally retelling and I am so excited for the second book called Kingdom of the Blazing Pheniox. I don’t know how I feel about the cover change though.

Review:  Forest of a Thousand Lanterns     

2) A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

I wanted to read this book because I am a big Disney fan so I had to watch the movie. I had never read the book as a child so I decided to read it before watching the movie. I have to say that I went in with high expectations for the book and it did not match my expectations. If you want to know more you can check out my review.

Review: A Wrinkle in Time 

3) Wires and Nerve Vol. 1 by Marissa Meyer

This book follows Iko from The Lunar Chronicles which is one of my favorite book series. I loved this graphic novel it was so much fun jumping into this world again.

Review: Wires and Nerve ( cation: had spoilers ) 

4) Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella 

IMG_0597

This is the story about a married couple who have been told that they will live very long lives learning this they freak out so they decided to do surprises for each other to keep the marriage interesting, but it doesn’t go according to plan.  I will save that I did not like this book as much as other Sophie Kinsella books. Kinsella is my favorite author and this book missed the mark with me.

Review: Surprise Me 

That’s it all the books I started and finished February and March. Let me know what you guys read. Also, let me know if you have read any of the books mentioned in this post.

Until next time book nerds,

   Reason: I just love their relationship. They have their ups and downs but they are always there for each other when it matters.

One more thing Luke is husband goals. Continue reading “My Favorite Relationships in Books”

Coming Up in February and March!

Hello there!

In today’s post I will be telling you what I have planned to read in February and March. I have decided to start doing my TBR’s every three months instead of monthly. That way it allows me to have a longer amount of time to read the books that I set out to read. Since I thought about this after I had already done my January TBR this month it will just be February and March. My next TBR will be in April for April, May and June. The next July for July, August and September. Lastly, October for October, November and December. I really hope that this schedule works out better. Now on to the books.

1. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

1)E-Book or Physical Book?
