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

Currently Reading

We believed them, even though we could see that what they were doing was wicked and evil and wrong…

Currently Re-Reading | The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. Just finished my reread of this first book in the His Dark Materials Trilogy, and I need some time to be alone with my feelings and memories of my childhood.
