February TBR Final 2017 Edition

February TBR- Final

I did much better than expected for February. It’s been a crazy month, it always is when Mardi Gras is involved. Funny thing– the holiday pushed me to read several local books. And I’m so glad that I did. I didn’t read everything that I’d planned to read. Actually, at some point, I totally forgot what I planned to read and just read what was at hand 🙂

  • Corroded by Carrie Dalby– Read and loved it. Wonderful YA book.
  • Plot & Structure: Techniques and Exercises for Crafting a Plot that GripsReaders from Start to Finish by James Scott Bell.  Excellent. My copy is highlighted to death.
  • Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade by Patrick Denis- Nope. I read a few chapters and got distracted by Mardi Gras. Auntie Mame would understand that.
  • A Monster Calls by Parick Ness- Really good. Not sure if I want to see the movie. From the previews, I know the two are way different.
  • Fantastic Creatures by A Fellowship of Fantasy Authors– Nope. I am still reading it. A story at a time.

Other books I’ve read:

  • The Mardi Gras Chase (True Girls Book 1) by Maggie M. Larche- Loved it. Great short read using Mobile’s Mardi Gras as the backdrop.
  • The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan a disappointment.
  • The Mystery of Wragg Swamp by Jerrye Sumrall another local read using Mobile’s Mardi Gras as a backdrop.
  • The English Spy by Daniel Silva Wow! Smart and intense.

That is 7 books for the month giving me a total of 13 for the year out of my planned 80.

Hard to pick a favorite. It’s a tie between Corroded and A Monster Calls.  They are different kinds of books. Monster had me in tears. If you haven’t read these I suggest you locate a copy and give them a read.

What was your favorite read this month?
