February Review

I'm not really sure where the last month has gone ... I've been super busy with work, with leg rebuilding and with having a horrible cold. On a bookish front I did get to an event or two and I have had a huge clear out of my TBR pile which made me feel so much better as it is now more managable (although I then undid that work by ordering myself a nice load of UKYA titles as I was running sort of them for the British Books Challenge)

Books read in February

26) Battlelines by Will Hill (British Books Challenge)
27) Burn for Burn by Jenny Hann and Siobhan Vivan
28) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling (British Books Challenge)
29) The Savages by Matt Whyman (British Books Challenge)
30) Laura by Sarra Manning (British Books Challenge)
31) Paper Aeroplanes by Dawn O'Porter (British Books Challenge)
32) Invisible by Jeff Erno
33) Finding Cherokee Brown by Siobhan Curham (British Books Challenge)
34) The Disgrace of Kitty Grey by Mary Hooper (British Books Challenge)
35) Burn Mark by Laura Powell (British Books Challenge)
36) It felt like a kiss by Sarra Manning (British Books Challenge)
37) Witch Fire by Laura Powell (British Books Challenge)
38) Hadley by Sarra Manning (British Books Challenge)

not the best month for me reading wise at all and actually the sheer lack of reading this month (especially considering I had a half term break) has annoyed me somewhat but there you go.

Book events
I went to London (My first trip out solo since breaking my leg that wasn't work, yes I know it was ambitious) for a brunch with Hot Key Books and Templar. It was a brilliant morning and I came home with a huge goodie bag stuffed with gorgeous books and got to meet a whole host of lovely authors.

I also got to hear Caroline Green speak about her books at an event at school. I wasn't really on the ball that day as had I thought about it I would have taken money in for books etc but never mind.

Book of the month

Has to be Sarra Manning's It Felt Like a Kiss. No cover to show you yet and not out until May so review to come but I loved it. Yes I know I have been a bit of a Sarra Manning fan girl of late. I actually still have 6 more titles from here on my TBR pile (well 7 if you count her 2014 YA novel) so please do expect it to continue for a while to come.

Sorry to hear about your leg! Glad you hear it's getting better! You read some good books this month! I read Sarra Manning's book, Nobody's Girl, the end of last year and I loved it! :D I really want to read Burn for Burn! I also received The Disgrace of Kitty Grey to review and I will be reading it soon! :)
