Each month I will do mini-reviews of all the books I read. I had a bit of a slow reading month overall, likely due to the two books over 600 pages in this wrap-up. The month was mostly dominated by Tournament of Books reading, and at this point in time, I’ve read 8 of the 16 books on the list. I was hoping to be further along, but – oh well. In total, I read 4 books, and listened to 4 audiobooks!
In case you missed my mid-month wrap up, check it out here, where I discuss the books I read earlier this month, shown below.
Now on to the books for second half of the month.
The Final Empire, by Brandon Sanderson (2006)
I read this as February’s read for #YearOfCosmere. I did a full spoiler-free review of this book, which you can find here, so I’m really not going to say anything other than I loved it, and it lives up to the hype. [4.5/5 stars]
Wow – this is bad. SO BAD. On so many levels. There are just no words… I mean there are, they’re just not suitable for any place other than the depths of my mind. Can’t say I wasn’t warned. [1/5 stars].
Mr. Kiss and Tell, by Rob Thomas & Jennifer Graham (2015)
This is the second installment in the Veronica Mars mystery book series. Honestly, this was a bit of a letdown. More Weevil and more Logan, yes, but not necessarily in a hugely satisfying way. The absence of Kristen Bell as narrator was severely felt on my part, and unless she narrates in the future I likely won’t tune in on audio anymore. The narrator of this I found a bit annoying, most notably her “dude voice.” The plot was overall less compelling, and although I always appreciate Veronica’s bad-assery, she was bugging me with how she was behaving towards and about Logan. [3/5 stars]
What was the best book you read this month? I’d love to hear about it!
