Bookish Update: February 2013

bookish updates

Currently reading: Hilary Reyl, Lessons in French

Books read in February:

  1. Phillip Rock, The Passing Bells
  2. Alicia Thompson, Psych Major Syndrome

  5. Anne Fortier, Juliet
  6. Gail Carriger, Etiquette & Espionage

Favorite book of the month: Etiquette & Espionage — a finishing school that teaches young ladies how to be spies? To quote Liz Lemon, “I want to go to there!”

Least favorite book of the month: Juliet — cool premise, horribly annoying heroine.

Books acquired in February:

  1. Hilary Reyl, Lessons in French
  2. Liza Palmer, A Field Guide to Burying Your Parents
  3. Kristan Higgins, The Best Man
  4. Jennifer Echols, Star Crossed

Clearly I am craving the light and fluffy these days! But I’m proud of myself for only acquiring three four new books. 🙂 Onward to March!

    I really like the format you use for these (I have a feeling I might have said that before?)

    I haven’t read any of these. I am sorry to hear about Juliet. Which ones would be your first recommendation out of that list though?

      Hmm…well, personally, I enjoyed Etiquette & Espionage the most. It’s just a lot of fun! I also very much liked The Wedding of Zein because it taught me a little bit about the culture of Sudan, which I know basically nothing about.
