Have you read a really amazing book this month? Have you read several really amazing books this month? Tell us what you have read. What did you like about them? Or not like about them? Would you recommend them? If so, why? If not, why? Did you love the characters? Do you have a particular ship that you love and are hoping will be continued through the series/trilogy? Did you enjoy the writing style? Have you read any other books by this author.

Tell us all what you thought of the book that you decided to read and finish. Tell us what you rated it. What you liked. What you didn't like. Tell us everything that you want to. Please remember to hide your spoilers.

I'm really working right now on getting through Carry On. It's a book I've been meaning to read since the day it came out.

It's only 412 pages. pretty much a 4 hour-ish read for me if I just sit and read it. Which I did so I could get rid of it. XD But yes I read it in two days and thank god I didn't have to read it for longer. I did not like it.

2. Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards 1/6 ⭐⭐⭐
3. The Awakening (The Vampire Diaries, #1) by L.J. Smith 1/8 ⭐⭐1/2 (previously a ⭐⭐)

6. Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1) by Kami Garcia 1/16 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (previously a ⭐⭐⭐)
7. Everless by Sara Holland 1/24 ⭐⭐⭐
8. Beautiful Creatures The Manga by Kami Garcia 1/24 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
9. A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis 1/25 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
10. The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events, #2) by Lemony Snicket 1/27 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
11. Little Monsters by Kara Thomas 1/30 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
12. Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children, #1) by Seanan McGuire 1/31 ⭐⭐⭐
13. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) by J.K. Rowling 1/31 ⭐⭐⭐

I am pretty happy with my reading month, since my average rating was a 3.5. I did start The Good Daughter (The Good Daughter #1) by Karin Slaughter and Ruined (Ruined, #1) by Paula Morris this month too, but haven't finished them yet because I'm having trouble getting into them. I'm happy I reread a couple books and ended up rating them higher this time, but I'm bummed that Everless and Every Heart a Doorway disappointed me so much because I was looking forward to them the most.

Leela, you read super fast. Wow. lol

I plan to read The Cruel Prince and Renegades next month so I'm curious what you guys rated them.
