My Momentous Month (8)

Woah, I can't believe it's been 8 months of this blog already! Goodness, time flies! If you'd like to join in with my momentous month, just remember to link back to my blog! You can use the new button if you'd like as well. :)
My Momentous Month is a weekly meme which is hosted here at Downright Dystopian. It's pretty much just a way to wrap up everything that has happened over the past month. I also pick favorites and I share what I'm going to read next month!
 
Books Read in February 2013
  1. Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

As always, this is more of a guidline. I know I'm probably not going to follow through!

Favorite Book of the Month
My favorite book of the month would have to be Between the Lines by Samantha van Leer and Jodi Picoult. I thought that it was just so unique and creative! Plus, the illustrations were absolutely gorgeous. It's definitely going to be a favorite of mine from now on.

  1. How did you not read a dystopian? Girl, that's in your blog title! But I understand reading what calls to you at the moment and there will be plenty of great dystopias in the months to come.
