(links go to my reviews)

favourite book of the month: Probably A Conspiracy of Kings. Megan Whalen Turner's whole Queen's Thief series just steals my heart every time. I also really really loved Across the Universe. That was a pleasant surprise.

disappointment of the month: Matched. I was so hoping it was going to be amazing.

reading right now: Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton. So far not bad.

what were your favourite reads of last month? Link me to your round-up posts if you do them :)


  1. I have All You Get Is Me. Really need to get on that and read it. You had a great month!

  2. I was surprised at how good it was - I hope it gets more buzz :) Thanks! It's not as much as 19 but it's still more than I normally read in a month - I think blogging has been helping keep me on track.
