Great February Books

Even though I had a crazy-busy month and didn’t get to read as much as I wanted, I still had a hard time picking my favorite book out of the five (only five! so sad) that I read.

Going for a two-way tie, my faves were:

THE DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE by Laini Taylor. What I loved about this book was that I am not a paranormal fan and yet I found those aspects of the story exquisite. I bought this book because of the art student in Prague angle, and hadn’t actually realized how far this book would take me down the paranormal path, but the writing pulled me willingly along. What a gripping love story!

THE GIRL IN THE STEEL CORSET by Kady Cross. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this book because I’d never read anything from Harlequin Teen, but I was pulled in from the very beginning and couldn’t put it down. What they say about teen romance being about the anticipation and buildup more than fulfillment is so true here. So well done! Plus all that steampunky stuff is pretty cool too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Looking forward to more great reads in March!

  2. I so adored Daughter of Smoke & Bone and am impatiently awaiting the next one. Such a wonderfully awesome world! I’ve yet to read Steel Corset, but I’ll have to check it out!

  3. DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE is indeed such a wonderful love story and I love the way Laini writes..
