This Week’s Topic is: What’s the best book you’ve read in February?
February has been an interesting reading month for me. I read a lot of totally awesome books that completely blew my mind, but I read just as many that left me rather unimpressed – including my first real, genuine, did-not-finish basically ever. So, uh, there’s that, I guess.
Fortunately, this post will highlight the books in that first group. And…we have a tie!
I really, really liked Under the Never Sky, but I loved Through the Ever Night. Like UTNS, TTEN had a brilliant mix of action and romance. This time around, we saw even more character development, and we also got to see more of Roar (which I am never opposed to). Additionally, it did a great job setting up for the finale. Can it just be next year already?
I didn’t have any expectations going into Splintered, so I was very pleasantly surprised. It was a fantastic retelling of the Alice in Wonderland stories, but it was amazing in its own right. Alyssa’s character development is phenomenal, the love triangle is well-executed (and her chemistry with both gentlemen is excellent), and the writing is gorgeous.
Okay. I’ll stop before I wear out my thesaurus.
