#MondayMotivation 26-02-18

So, these past couple months have been a whirlwind. Can you believe we’re already at the end of February?! I’m lucky that the New Year energy has actually carried through until now.

Montly Reading Wrap-Up | Jan-Feb 2014

Monthly Reading Wrap-Up | Featuring my past two months of reading, because I’ve been really bad at keeping up with it 😛 BUT, I have been reading quite a bit, and I’ve been reading some really awesome stuff. For one, I tore through the first two books of Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy–and I’ve also pre-ordered the final installment, because I have no words.

I also devoured A Darkness Strange and LovelySusan Dennard‘s sequel/middle act to the Something Strange and Deadly trilogy. As I’ve said before: Victorian-era zombies + steampunk? More please? Entwined by Heather Dixon was a present from home, a gothic-y retelling of the fairy tale of the Twelve Dancing Princesses that was super fun to read, and in Middle Grade, I started the Secret Series by Pseudonymous Bosch (you know, that guy) as well as a reread of the His Dark Materials trilogy. Over all, a lot of clockwork and airships this month.

Other reads this month, not in MG or YA:

Kindred by Octavia Bulter

Night Film by Marisha Pessl
