Well, I didn’t get as much read in February as I wanted to, so this will be short. Also, for the Harry Potter readalong and the Vanity Fair readalong I’m halfway through the books – so really I did more reading than it looks like, but those won’t count until I finish them in March.
Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding – Awesome, fantastic book about the crew of the airship Ketty Jay, with some steampunk elements. There’s adventure, piracy, gun fights, daemonism, golems, and a fun interesting cast of characters. LOVED it! Totally gave me book hangover because I wanted to read the second book ASAP.
One Good Earl Deserves A Lover by Sarah MacLean – Historical romance with a scientist heroine. It wasn’t great, but it was a good quick fluffy read with some sexy-times.
The Black Lung Captain by Chris Wooding – Sequel to Retribution Falls, and further cementing my affection for this series. It was just as fun and bad-ass as the first book, and more backstory on some of the characters. And no second-book syndrome, meaning it was entertaining and interesting and didn’t suck AT ALL. Can’t wait to read the third one!
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling – Continuing in the readalong fun! Still love it. It’s magic, siriusly. My readalong posts are here and here. (We’re halfway through Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire now.)
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury – Really good classic sci-fi literature in the form of loosely-connected short stories, in which Bradbury imagines humans going to Mars in a really bleak and depressing, but cautionary, way. Read it with Rebecca from Love At First Book, and it was fun to email each other back and forth about it!
And that was it! I tried to squeeze another book into these last couple of days but that just didn’t happen.
So, thoughts? Have you read any of these? Or do you want to now?
