February Wrap-Up (PS I Failed Again)

This month I told myself that I was actually going to read what I put in my TBR. And this month, yet again, I failed. I don't know how this happened. I had everything set up so that it would go smoothly, and then awesome books just had to make their way into my life and prevent me from going through with my plans.

Well, then. I'll guess I'll have to deal with the fall-out from that. That'll be my problem. Also, on one last negative note. I didn't manage to do many posts in February though I read quite a few books. Again, I would rant about a million things as excuses, but you don't want to hear that. But here's to me saying that I will do better this month!

Now let's get to the books and the links to the ones that I actually managed to review:

Books I read this month:

1. Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon V.3 (Best volume yet!)

2. Perfect by Ellen Hopkins (Ellen at her best! I loved it. Hoping for a review in March.)

3. Caged Moon by Rachel Deagan (Check out my 5 star review: here)

4. The Night She Disappeared by April Henry (Release date isn't till April, so I'm holding off my review.)

5. American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang (Check out my review: here.)

6. The Eternal Smile: Three Stories by Gene Luen Yang  (WEIRD & Good Art)

7. Fruits Basket V. 1 & 2 by Natsuki Takaya (Super cute! Can't wait for more volumes!)

8. Embrace by Jessica Shirvington (EPIC. Review will be up the release date. March 6th.)

Review for books I didn't read this month:

1. The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler 

And that's it for me this month. I think 9 books (if you count both volumes of Fruits Basket) is great for the shortest month of the year. The fact that I managed to read zero books from my TBR for this month isn't so great. (Check that out HERE) I'll have my next TBR up in a few days. Hopefully I can think it through and get it right.

What did you read in February? Feel free to let me know or link up your monthly wrap-up.
