2011 100+ Reading Challenge: February
Below is the summary of books I read in February for the 2011 100+ Reading Challenge at Overstuffed Bookshelf.
13. Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning - paranormal thriller and romance. Apparently the author typically writes romances and this is considerably darker fare for her. It was action packed, quick paced, and downright morbidly funny. The story is about a Barbie-esque gal of 22 who goes to Ireland to avenge her sister's death and what she finds is a whole world of things she thought were fictional. Definitely an interesting must-read if you like Twilight or the Sookie Stackhouse series!
14. Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning. The second book in the series mentioned in #13. Couldn't put it down!
15. Faefever by Karen Marie Moning. The third book in the series mentioned in #13. Couldn't put it down!
16. Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning. The fourth book in the series mentioned in #13. Couldn't put it down!!!! And dangit, I have to wait awhile before i I can get my hands on Book 5. Waaaahhh!
17. The Magic Thief by Sarah Prineas. This was a super fast read since it's young adult/kid fiction. This was also a great read! I love her use of imagery in the novel and the world she's created. It's simple, accessible, and yet it excites the imagination. It's about a thieving gutterboy who ends up as the apprentice to a wizard after he steals the wizard's most prized magical tool. His talents pique the curiosity of the wizard and he goes on to save the city he lives in.
So that's my list! It's a bit shorter than last month, but that's because I ended up going on a reading strike for a bit. I'm currently reading The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron and one of the weeks in the program asks you to not read for a week. OMG, I thought I would DIE. I never really fully deprived myself (um, does blogging count?), but I at least tried to not read any other novels or books to accomplish part of the process. But now that's over and March is here, mwahaha!
Look out library, here I come!
