I hope January treated you good and here's to the month of love!


  1. I think Under the Never Sky is a hit or miss type of books. I've read many reviews for it and people either love it or hate it. I have it sitting on my shelf, so I will be trying it, but I'm worried about how I'll like it.

    Great wrap up, Lisa.

  2. I think I read only about 6 books last month so you are doing so much better then I am! :)

    I really need to get Under the Never Sky started!

  3. You are doing a BDB reading! AWESOME :D I loved Lover Awakened, one of favorite from the series. Zsadist and Bella story was heartbreaking and beautiful. There is another short story with Z&B I can't remember the name =/

    I haven't seen Secretariat, I think I am seeing it first time in your blog. I love the posted for the movie, I will check it out.


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
