you're welcome. I just put the rules there, so we have an easier acess to them ... it's not like it's obrigatory to put these in the thread.

Anyone excited about reading any certain book in February (the month of love) ?! :)


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I am not really excited about any book so far but I plan on reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes this time. Anyone read it?

message 14: by Hannah (new)

Hannah (TheRainyReader) (therainyreader) Does anyone know if I want to do a reread but this edition has over 100 pages of new content and it would obviously be a different edition if it would count or not?

I reread the original story less than a year ago.

Tayla Robichaud (trobes7x) | 3093 comments can we put the link to reviews on this chat plz


message 16: by Tayla (new)

Tayla Robichaud (trobes7x) | 3093 comments anyone know if these count?
King's Cage (Red Queen, #3) by Victoria Aveyard Torment (Fallen, #2) by Lauren Kate Carve the Mark (Carve the Mark, #1) by Veronica Roth A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire, #1) by Jessica Cluess Scythe (Arc of a Scythe, #1) by Neal Shusterman


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Hannah, since it is a different edition, I think it will count but why don't you confirm it on the challenge thread?


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

See, I am sure Torment will count. Doubtful about Scythe and the others.

Emma (goldguardie) | 266 comments Hello! I am here! I'm sorry I didn't check in earlier but I'm not a ghost reader, I promise!

I'm currently reading Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2) by Tahereh Mafi for a book published in February.

Planning on buddy reading The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1) by Marie Rutkoski and will use it for a book with average rating over 4 (it just squeezes in with a 4.04).

I might *try* to get in The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #2) by Patrick Rothfuss for book beginning with "T", but it's almost 1000 pages so I'm not sure I will be able to finish it.


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

That's great, Emma. i have personally read 2 more books but haven't reviewed them, yet because I don't have my laptop. will review them most probably on the 16th. :D


message 30: by Emma (new)

Emma (goldguardie) | 266 comments I finished Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2) by Tahereh Mafi and The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1) by Marie Rutkoski . Reviewing/posting them in a few minutes. I also read For Darkness Shows the Stars (For Darkness Shows the Stars, #1) by Diana Peterfreund that I think will fit into the "romance" category, since it's a retelling of Persuasion by Jane Austen, and one of the book's listed genres is romance.


message 31: by Vivi (new)

Vivi | 1338 comments Great, Emma! :)


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

This is cool. I am currently reading a Jane Austen retelling, too. how about you people?


message 33: by Vivi (new)

Vivi | 1338 comments I'm currentlly reading Crazy For Alice. I got an review copy from the author :)

I haven't read any of her books... I hadn't really payed attention to this author ... do you like her? she seams to have some light sweet "clean" romances. Do you recommend any of her books?


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah. I have been reading only her books this moth xD

They are expensive, though. I had to buy the kindle edition that is why. Do you use kindle?

I have kindle, though I don't use it much. But, I do have some kindle books I got through Netgalley, so I'll probably be using my kindle more next month.

Which of this months reads was your favourite?


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

Pride and Popularity , I guess.


message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

What about yours?


message 40: by Vivi (new)

Vivi | 1338 comments My favourite book, this month, was Catch My Breath. Such a beautiful, sweet love story<3
