Mercedes | 257 comments I didn't do January, hopefully I'll be able to complete February :)

- Read a book with a cover you LOVE - Spinning Out Read 2/9-2/12 ★★★1/2
I love this one for shallow reasons, it's hot! lol. I do like the way the font was done, slightly transparent and the minty color of the author/series name.
- Read a book with a character’s name you LOVE - Throne of Truth Read 2/24-2/28 ★★★1/2
Penn Everett, I liked his name when I first picked up book 1 and was curious to see if it was short for something, which it's not. I enjoy that an author chose the name Penn, and a pen is a traditional writing utensil.
- Read a book from an author you LOVE - Penelope Douglas Read 2/5-2/7 ★★★★
I love Penelope Douglas! I read Bully a few years back and really enjoyed it, I've since read Corrupt and Punk57. I'm just now catching up on the Fall Away Series
- Read a book with a title you LOVE - Royal Scandal Read 2/7-2/8 ★★★1/2
This title is intriguing, it's why I first wanted the book. Who doesn't love a bit of a scandal with some royalty thrown in!
- Read a book that one of the moderators LOVE - Up in the Treehouse Read 2/14-2/17 ★★★★

-Read a book with a cover you LOVE
Up in the Treehouse 2/21 (4*)
This cover is beautiful & different. It tells me that this story might be about childhood crushes/sweethearts...which I enjoy reading!
- Read a book with a character’s name you LOVE- Tristan
Bad Things 2/17 (4*)
I love the name Tristan. It's a combination of sweet & sexy and Tristan in Bad Things was definitely both...he was sexysweet!
- Read a book from an author you LOVE
The Fire Between High & Lo 2/14 (4*)
Brittainy C. Cherry is one of my favorite authors. Even though I don't always give her books a 5*...her writing is beautiful. Her stories are an emotional experience.
The Silent Waters 2/26 (5*)
Another Brittainy C. Cherry book that is beautifully written. She makes you fall in love...breaks your heart...then mends it.
Until Friday Night 2/4 (4*)
Abbi Glines: I have read over 20 books written by Abbi Glines...so I am a fan. I'm on the fence with this book. I think the line between YA/NA is getting blurred. The characters are in HS but are dealing with serious issues and have to take on adult responsibilities. Or, if a character turns 18 in HS. Abbi Glines has several books that fall into this category.
- Read a book with a title you LOVE
F*ck Love- 2/12 (4*)
This title is hilarious...I love it! The book was pretty crazy and funny too.
- Read a book that one of the moderators LOVE
Derna's list : Full Tilt- 2/8 (5*)
I chose this book from the list because of the synopsis and so happy I did because this book was beautiful.
Derna's list: Kick, Push 2/28 (4*)
I wanted to read this book because it's about a single dad. This was a very sad book...hopefully book #2 brings happy tears.

Cover: Royal Scandal (Royals in Exile, #1) by Marquita Valentine 02/09**
Didn't enjoy this much but I love everything about the cover: the colors, those amazing legs (that I wish I have) and the little crown hanging from her heels

Character’s name: Blood Vow (Black Dagger Legacy, #2) by J.R. Ward 02/04*** Full Package by Lauren Blakely 02/13***
Axwelle sounds so manly! Also, Lizabitte and her nickname Bitty is cute.
Chase coz I imagined Dr. Chase from House M.D.

Author: Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin by Mariana Zapata 2/15****
Mariana Zapata's books are like lollipops. Sweet from beginning to end.

Title: Blurred Lines (Love Unexpectedly, #1) by Lauren Layne 2/18***
I always think of the song when I read the title. It's so sexy.

1. Infini (Aerial Ethereal, #2) by Krista Ritchie ***** 08/02 -- I LOVE the title of this book, because some love is infinite. Also Infini is a circus and I'm really loving the circus world the authors have created.

2. All I Want (Alabama Summer, #2) by J. Daniels **** 10/02 -- I understand why LeAnn loves this book (moderator LOVE).

3. The Cad and the Co-Ed (Rugby, #3) by L.H. Cosway ***** 14/02 -- I LOVE the cover, because it looks like the covers of the other books in the series and the cover makes perfect sense if you have read The Hooker and the Hermit.

4. Pivotal Moments (In Time, #1) by Trinity Hanrahan **** 16/02 -- I LOVE the cover, just because he holds her.

5. When I Fall (Alabama Summer, #3) by J. Daniels ***** 18/02 -- I LOVE the author. I only have to read one more book by her and then I have read them all. Also a few books by her are on my favorite shelf (When I Fall is on that shelf).

6. Forfeiting Decency (Breaking Habits, #2) by Rachel Schneider (NA on Amazon) ***** 21/02 -- I absolutely LOVE the cover. If someone asks me what my favorite cover ever is, I would think about this cover! So beautiful!

7. Where We Belong (Alabama Summer, #3.5) by J. Daniels ***** 21/02 -- I totally understand why LeAnn also loves this book (moderator LOVE)

8. Strain of Defiance by Michelle Bryan ***** 22/02 -- I LOVE this cover , because it's how I picture Luke looks like.

9. Fake Fiancée by Ilsa Madden-Mills ***** 24/02 -- I LOVE the title, because I love it when a relationship starts fake and then they fall hard and fast for each ohter.

10. Womanizer (Manwhore, #4) by Katy Evans ***** 25/02 -- I LOVE the character's name Olivia. It's normal and beautiful. I always gave my first daughter that name in the computer game 'The Sims' (no kidding).

11. Kiss the Boys (Lost Girls #2) by Chris Myers **** 27/02 -- I LOVE the cover, because the man looks like a bad boy and I definitely love a bad boy. Also you really see the angel and angels are important in the story.

12. Whiskey & Honey (Country Road #1) by Andrea Johnston ***** 27/02 -- I LOVE the character's name Piper Lawrence. The first name reminds of Piper Halliwell of the tv show Charmed and I absolutely loved that show. The last name reminds me of Jennifer Lawrence and she's an amazing actress.

13. Dirty (Dive Bar, #1) by Kylie Scott ***** 28/02 -- I LOVE the author, because she wrote one of the best rock star series ever.
