February 2015 Wrap Up

Just for review, I'll start with the books that were on my February TBR:

  1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling - Done! I finally finished it!

  2. The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa - Not done. :( I read a little more of it, but still not done. I'm not giving up, yet, there are just so many books ahead of it on my to do list.

  3. Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood - Done! I think I already told you how much I love it.

  4. Still Alice by Lisa Genove - Not done. :( It turned out to be too much for me. Oh well.

  5. Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh - Done! I really enjoyed this one. She gets me.

  6. Bad Machinery Vol. 3 The Case of the Simple Soul by John Allison - Done! Another cute graphic novel.

  7. The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe - Not Done. :( Here's another one I am not giving up on, but have put on the back burner for now.

  8. I'm a Good Dog by Ken Foster - Done! Cute stories about Pit Bulls. I love my pit bull!

So, that's 5 out of 8. Not too shabby. Plus, I read other stuff too! Let's explore those other books, now.

Jane Austen Cover to Cover by Margaret C. Sullivan - This was an interesting look at some of the covers on Jane Austen editions over the years. Really entertaining. Especially the 50's romance ones.

Rat Queens

Rat Queens Vol. 1: Sass and Sorcery by Kurtis J. Wiebe - I read this graphic novel over my lunch break one day. It was pretty violent, but I liked the realistic drawings of the female characters.


Detroit: A Biography by Scott Martelle - This one works for my Read Harder Challenge. It is officially a microhistory of Detroit. I don't know why I'm fascinated by Detroit.


Lock-In by John Scalzi - I read this one for my dystopian book talk I'm giving in April. I really enjoyed it and I give it 9/10 bookmarks.

I guess that's it. 9 books. I'm way ahead of my Goodreads challenge for the year. I set my goal at 50 books. Two months in and I've read 16 books. Pretty good, really.
