A Really Late February Wrap Up

First I'd like to say sorry that this is so late and that I did not put up a TBR for this month. I am also currently in a reading slump, which is really sad because I had a bunch of review books I was going to read this month. Although I am going to try to get out of it by watching way to much Netflix. :D Also I am just getting over being sick. So anyway on to the really late wrap up...

Last month I read a lot of books and I am extremely happy. :D In total, I read nine books and I enjoyed most of them. Some were not so good.

The first book I read was Chestnuts: A True Story About Being Bullied by Gilbert Ohanian. I gave this a 2.5 stars out of 5 stars. I have a more in depth review and I will leave the link below.
I picked up Einstein's Beach House by Jacob M Appel next. I really liked this book. It was quirky, entertaining, and heartbreaking all at the same time! Also I wrote a review for this and I will leave the link below as well.

Then I read The Shinning by Stephen King, which was absolutely amazing! I loved this book. The characters and plot were amazing. I would read this book over and over again and I probably will! I gave this a 5 out of 5 stars and if it was possible I would give it more and I cannot wait to read the sequel, Doctor Sleep! Next I read Bobo by Richard Schiver, which is a short story that I downloaded on my kindle. I gave this a 2 out of 5 stars. I just didn't like it.

I finished The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare by reading the last two books, which are called City of Lost Souls and City of Heavenly Fire! Oh my god, this series is freaking amazing! I can't get enough and I wish it didn't end! I gave both books 5 out of 5 stars! Ugh I can't wait to re-read the series. It also made me want to read the Infernal Devices or the Bane Chronicles. (I cannot get enough of Alec and Magnus...just saying.)

Then I started Rising Tide: Dark Innocence by Claudette Melanson, who is so sweet. I really liked this book. It was really good and it put me in the mood to read more vampire books. I gave this book a 4 stars out of 5 stars. :D Also I did a review for this one and I will leave the link below. :D

The Patmos Deception by Davis Bunn was the next book I read. I thought this was good and I gave it a 3 out of 5 stars. I posted a review for this book and I will leave it below if you'd like to know more about how I felt.

Lastly, I finished my TBR jar pick for February, which was The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima. I highly enjoyed this book. I really liked the main character and the plot. I will definitely go on to read the sequel, which I believe is the Wizard Heir. I could be wrong. Haha

That is all I read in the month of February. Leave a comment telling me what you read in February. Happy Reading

Anyone? by Angela Scott

I finished this book in about three hours...
I also tweeted her to see if there would be a sequel...which I want really bad...

"The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….
…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.
Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no choice—he must find her missing brother. Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.
But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed …

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Tips for All!

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great month. I am super excited since the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon is almost here. I have only done this once, but I learned a lot during that 24 hour period. Now I am going to share my advice with you.

1. Read What YOU Want to Read.

This is incredibly important. If you are not reading something you want to read and your pushing yourself to read it, then put it down and take a break. Read something you want or take a nap. If your doing this, it could led to a reading slump or watching Netflix... I totally did that! Not that there is anything wrong with taking a break! Or watching Netflix...


2. Take Breaks, Even Naps!

This is key to having fun during this read-a-thon! If your eyes start to blur, take a nap. If your hungry or want to watch Netflix for a little bit. Do it! Or you could cheer other people on during the read-a-thon. If you didn't sign up to be a cheerleader, join #TeamRogue and cheer. :D Just do not over work yourself.

Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney

My Rating: 3/5 stars Average Rating: 4/5 stars Format: ebook ISBN13: 9781310806902
I received a free copy in exchange for a honest review from AuthorAmp.com
Night of All Evil was a good gothic horror novel about a witch named Freya that has a dark past that comes back to haunt her and her family. Freya was my favorite character and I really enjoyed reading from her point of view. The thing I liked about her was how she acted in the situations she is placed in. She also is just an interesting person that also happens to be a super powerful witch, which is pretty cool. In fact once I started this novel, I had a hard time putting it down. While I really enjoyed reading the story, the character development was just okay and it was kind of predictable. However, it was still a good read that grabbed my attention and kept me entertained.                                                                                                   Thanks for reading!                                            …
