Two Is Just A Number

So YA Highway's Road Trip Wednesday question is:

What's the best book you've read in February?

And ohmyfreakingheck I've only read... two.

Something is wrong. Very very wrong.

Okay, enough with the dramatics. But still, it shocks me that I've only read two books this month. Then again I was busy finishing up an R&R so that's kinda a good excuse, right?

So here's what I read:

I'd have to give the best to Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, just for the simple fact that it was new to me. Beautiful Creatures was a reread and while I still love it, it didn't have that exciting, edge-of-my-seat, what's-going-to-happen-next factor because, well, I already knew. (And I still haven't seen the movie, BTW. What's up with that???) Shadow and Bone was immediately compelling. I fell into the world she created from the start. I understood and connected with the main characters desires and decisions. The Darkling was an especially compelling character. And she took the book somewhere I didn't think she would go.
