(Slightly Late) February Reading Wrap-up

It has got to the 12th of March and I’ve only just realised I never wrote my wrap-up for February. I think I’ve been subconsciously putting it off because I read so many books last month – a whopping TWENTY (I know right, crazy isn’t it?!) because I spent so long laid up with a sprained knee.24733940

1. EMMY AND OLIVER by Robin Benway

★★★★★ – Heartbreakingly lovely.

2. CLARITY by Kim Harrington

★★☆☆☆ – So, so disappointing. The protagonist is really irritating and the writing is all a bit off. A shame though.

3. THE MOMENT COLLECTOR by Jodi Lynn Anderson

★★★★★ – Recommended for fans of the LOVELY BONES, this totally lives up to that blurb. I really loved this.

4. 21 PROMS by David Levithan, John Green, Libba Bray etc

23845952★★★☆☆ – A good collection but I don’t think I enjoyed that many of the stories. Highlights include THE GREAT AMERICAN MORP and MOM CALLED, SHE SAYS YOU HAVE TO GO TO PROM.


★★★★☆ – A ghost story disguised as, well, something that isn’t a ghost story.

6. PRETTY LITTLE LIARS by Sara Shepard

★★★☆☆ – I started reading this series because I adore the show and I wanted to know how different the books are. Answer: very. Story is good but the actual writing lets it down.

7. THE CHILD’S SECRET by Amanda Brooke

★★★☆☆ – An interesting thriller that certainly keeps you guessing almost to the very end.

8. FLAWLESS by Sara Shepard


9. PERFECT by Sara Shepard

★★★☆☆ – This is the book where I realised how sick I was of the brand-name drops in25365530 the narrative.

10. GOOD ME, BAD ME by Ali Land

 ★★★☆☆ – A good psychological thriller. The narrator is surprisingly unreliable and the narrative keeps you on your toes the whole way through.

11. UNBELIEVABLE by Sara Shepard

★★★☆☆ – The action picked up in this one – especially a few bits I recognised from the TV series.

12. BEHIND HER EYES by Sarah Pinborough

★★★★☆ – This is totally up there with the likes of GONE GIRL. The ending! The plot twists! 24934065

13. REBEL OF THE SANDS by Alwyn Hamilton

★★★★☆ – One of my only complaints is that there’s no map. A fabulous YA “Middle Eastern Western” with semi-realistic romance (no insta-love! *fist-pump*).

14. THE BOOK OF MIRRORS by E.O. Chirovici

★★☆☆☆ – Another psychological thriller, except this one is unfortunately lacking in actual thrills.

15. WICKED by Sara Shepard


16. PARIS FOR ONE AND OTHER STORIES by Jojo Moyes32680297

★★★★★ –  I’m totally biased because I adore Jojo Moyes, but this is a fantastic collection of short stories. Even if my ARC copy was missing all of its “ff”s.


★★☆☆☆ – One of my most anticipated reads of this year, and probably one of my most disappointing reads as well. The whole story was a bit rushed for my liking.

18. KILLER by Sara Shepard

★★★☆☆ – This one nearly got an extra star for its plot twists.

19. HEARTLESS by Sara Shepard


20. WANTED by Sara Shepard

★★★☆☆ – The original end to the PLL series (thank goodness). Finally the big A reveal is here!

I wish I could read 20 books every month… but I suppose I don’t get two weeks rest prescribed in a usual month so I can’t imagine it’ll happen again. What did you guys read this month? Let me know some thoughts!
