February Wrap Up + March TBR

FEBRUARY WRAP-UP 

This was actually a surprisingly good reading month for me. Two of the books I read were for classes, and the other ones were for pleasure!

Missing Sarah: A Memoir of Loss by Maggie DeVries 

This is one of the books I read for class! You can read the review I wrote for it, here.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell 

E&P was my second Rainbow Rowell book and I did not enjoy it nearly as much as Attachments. I know that’s an unpopular opinion, and with all the hype and the rave reviews I’d seen for this book, I was expecting to enjoy it a lot more than I did.

Kissing the Witch by Emma Donoghue 

This is another book I read for class. It is a collection of re-told and adapted fairytales, stitched together as a cohesive story that travels back in time with each tale. I found this book really fascinating because not only did it give the reader a look at the psyche and the backstory of the “villains” but it essentially erased the male figures in the stories and gave it an erotically charged lesbian vibe which was really interesting to read!

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I’ll be writing a review for this book soon, mainly for myself, in order to sort through my thoughts about this book. I definitely had mixed feelings about it, so keep your eyes out for the review coming within the next week or so!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

I’m not sure anything Rainbow Rowell writes can top Attachments for me, because I fell hard and fast for that book, but Fangirl made a pretty good run at it! There were definitely some aspects that I wasn’t super crazy about, but for the most part I really really liked this book! It’s another one that I will be writing a review for within the next week.

MARCH TBR

March is going to be an insanely busy month for me, school-wise, with the last of my midterms, five term papers and a large number of assignments. However, thanks to my lit courses, I have a lot of books/short stories to read by the end of March.

For my Children’s Literature course, I’ll be reading:

  • The Rose and the Beast: Fairy Tales Retold by Francesca Lia Block
  • I Was a Rat by Philip Pullman 
  • Clockwork by Philip Pullman 

For my course on Autobiography and Memoir, I’ll be reading:

  • Maus I: A Survivor’s Tale: My Father Bleeds History by Art Spieglman
  • Maus II: And Here My Troubles Began by Art Spieglman
  • World is Moving Around Me by Dany Laferriere 

There probably isn’t much of a chance that I’ll have time for any reading for pleasure, but just in case, I chose a YA contemporary to give myself a bit of a brain break from studying.

  • The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen 

I hope everyone had a good February, and as always, happy reading!
