February Book Wrap-Up

Hey, y'all! :)

This was a fun reading month, filled with fun stories. So, let's just hop right in and talk about these books I read in February!

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

This was a fun and happy little read I got for Christmas this past year. It was great to read during February, and even though the ending felt a little far-fetched for me, I still really enjoyed it.

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Oh. My. Goodness.

I really really really liked this one, y'all. Red Rising is a dystopian story set in Mars, about a guy named Darrow (LOVE that name) who, after experiencing the worst a caste system has to offer, decides to set a plan in motion to change everything. It's Hunger Games meets Ender's Game meets a little bit of Lord of the Rings with some of the battles.

I absolutely loved this first book, but I don't think I'll be continuing the series. I started the second book this month, but set it down because it didn't interest me as much as the first book did, and it almost reminded me too much of Ender's Game at the time (and I really, really want to read Ender's Game). Maybe I'll pick it up again once the third book comes out next year so I can marathon the series.

The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall

This one was just a lot of fun. It's a jet-setting adventure that takes place in Paris (a place I absolutely love) and Istanbul (a place I don't know as much about, but I'm curious about now). I really liked the main character - Avery felt real, and her reactions definitely made sense with what was being thrown at her.

I loved the characters and setting, but the plot felt a little muddy for me, mainly at the beginning and end of the novel. I was still so confused about what exactly the main organization was that I really don't see myself continuing the series. However, it was still a fun ride, and I'm glad I got to enjoy the cities the characters visited.

What did y'all read this month? Let me know in the comments! :)
