February was supposed to be a big TBR-hitting month for me before the monster releases of March, but…not so much. Not sure why, maybe it is just a reading slump, but I didn’t get through nearly the books I thought I would.
I started out DNF’ing Tales From the Shadowhunter Academy from Cassandra Clare. I was iffy on picking it up, but it was so pretty and it would go so well with the rest of them on my shelf that I gave in. Then I realized that I had absolutely no interest in reading it. Nothing against the book itself – I didn’t make it far enough into it to judge if it was good or bad – but I am so far out of the whole YA thing that it just didn’t appeal to me. Another one for the donation pile, I guess.
I was much more successful with the novella Interlude In Death from J.D. Robb. I am loving the In Death series more each book, and even the short stories are a treat. This one was set off-world at Roarke’s Olympus resort, which was a nice change of pace, and had a really nice amount of Roarke and his backstory. I have only read a couple of novellas at this point, but they are just as good as the full-length books.
But the star of this week is actually my re-read of White Hot from Ilona Andrews. As fan-girly as it might sound, I so love this series. Burn for Me was awesome, White Hot is even better. I am putting together a cheat sheet for the beginning of the Hidden Legacy character guide that lists out all of the different Houses and types of magic since there is so much to keep track of, but it is fun to do.
So that wraps this week up for me…what did you read this week? Are you finding anything new and exciting, or going back to old favorites?
