As the title of this post says IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY THIS MONTH! I am now no longer a teenager. Shit. Think its about time I updated my About Me page considering it still says I’m 18 LOL I’m just a lazy bean over here and really dont want to put the effort in. Cant the blog fairies come and do it?? But yeah, my birthday weekend was full of Amy either being drunk or hungover and then stumbling to work sunday night like ‘please-someone-stab-me-in-the-head-becuase-it-would-hurt-less-than-this’. But overall I had a great day.
I also went and saw James Bay this month. HE WAS INCREDIBLE! That man’s voice! I swear! LOVE IT! His voice is fantastic (it also helps that he’s hella good looking).
And lastly, I started back at uni just yesterday – by the way happy leap year everyone. It’s not that I’m not happy to be back butttt it’s-so-annoying ARGH! I do hope I do awesomely this semester! *fingers crossed*
NOW onto the stuff you actually care about… THE BOOKS
- Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare (4 stars) – I really enjoyed this!! I’m looking forward to finishing the trilogy!
- The Young Elites (The Young Elites #1) by Marie Lu (5 stars) – THIS WAS MY FAVOURITE READ OF THE MONTH IT WAS INCREDIBLE AND I SHALL FLAIL! I buddy read it with Trang from Bookidote and the entire experience was a blast! The review was also a lot of fun if you wanna check it out!
- Legend (Legend #1) by Marie Lu (3 stars) – Legend had the unfortunate chance of being read at the same time I was reading The Young Elites and I couldn’t help comparing them the entire time – and by comparison it just didn’t not stand up. I’m totally planning on finishing the trilogy tho! (Just got to find some bloody time!)
- Cruel Crown (Red Queen #0.1-0.2) by Victoria Aveyard (2.5 stars) – I did not like this novella collection that much at all! I just could not get into them and was wanting story lines that progressed the story lines in Red Queen more then I wanted stories about Corina and Farley.
- Red Queen (Red Queen #1) by Victoria Aveyard (reread) – I upgrade my star rating on this book from 4.5 to 5 stars after this reread! I just love this book so so much!!!
- Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard (4 stars) – I really really really enjoyed this book but at the same time I was like THE FUCK IS THIS! My feelings are complicated! I guess I just wasn’t expecting the sequel to Red Queen to go how it did and it kind of just threw me. My review should be up within a couple of days.
I had such a great time writing discussions this month! I’m hoping to keep up the discussion momentum and maybe write 5-6 in March!
- Why Rebel-Crews Give Me #Squadgoals – Where I fangirl about why books containing rebel groups are the best to read!
- Like, 2% of my Favourite Ships – My Valetine’s post, talking about just a handful of my OPTs and how I have a shipping problem.
- Why Standalone Fantasies Take The WORST Crown – Where I let my ranting flag fly about how standalone fantasies get our hopes up and then crush our dreams.
