February is a short month but I still managed to get a lot more reading done than I expected which is great, because if I want to read seventy five books this year, I need to keep up this pace.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – I have read this book countless times but it never seizes to impress me and make me tingle with excitement! Anna and the French Kiss is about a girl named Anna who for her last year of high school, is shipped off to an American boarding school in Paris. It is a book filled with romance, humor and heart wrenching moments that I never get tired of. 4.5/5 stars
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – Oh look, another re read and another contemporary. I read Since You’ve Been Gone back in July, and I just figured it was time to re read this amazing book and let me tell you, it definitely wasn’t a disappointment! Since You’ve Been Gone follows our main character, Emily, who’s best friend Sloane disappears as the summer begins, leaving only a bucket list for Emily to complete. Determined it will lead her to her best friend, Emily sets of to complete this list along with the help of new friends. This is a really fun and summery read that really gets me in the mood for summer. I really enjoyed it as always, and definitely recommend it! 4.5/5 stars
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – Yep more contemporaries, more re reads but that is okay because I also had so much fun reading this one! I think the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy is definitely in my top 2 favourite contemporaries just because it is so freaking fantastic. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is about a girl named Lara Jean who’s secret love letters one day get sent out to the past loves of her life, and she suddenly finds herself digging a hole of lies to prevent her current love from knowing she likes him. Why? Because it is her sister’s boyfriend. This book has such a quirky main character and a quirky romance which I absolutely adore! 5/5 stars
Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen – This was a brand new read for me, and as Sarah Dessen’s books always are, it was definitely an enjoyable read. It wasn’t the most amazing contemporary ever, but I did like how for the most part it focused on friendships rather than romance for the main character. Keeping the Moon follows our main character, Collie who is staying with her oddball aunt Mira for the summer while her personal fitness mother is travelling the world. The story follows her as she makes friends and learns to come to terms with her past and her present. 3/5 stars
Those are all the book she I managed to complete this month and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: March 2017 TBR!
