[STACKING THE SHELVES] FEBRUARY BOOK HAUL


Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard | Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Cress by Marissa Meyer | The Earth is Singing by Vanessa Curtis

Hello,

I've been as busy as ever. I'm trying to get myself back by March. I'm trying my best to be able to get my schedule straight. I've been reading really slow lately (which sucks, by the way). I got stuck with The Eye of Minds last time. I didn't enjoyed it as much as everyone :( now I don't feel like reading The Maze Runner.

Anyway, here're the books I got last month. All of which are books I'm really excited to read. Red Queen have mixed reviews but I'm still crossing my fingers that I won't be completely disappointed. When I saw Fairest and Cress in the bookstore, I immediately bought both. Now I really, REALLY need to read Scarlet. THEN The Earth is Singing was actually more on how much I got excited about buying it when I read that it's about WWII in Latvia. I was just heavily reminded of Between Shades of Gray.

Emmy has everything she’s ever wanted: a hot boyfriend she adores, great friends, a promising future, and even a well-connected family. But one night rips it all away. 
A car accident shatters her world, claiming the lives of her twin brother and her best friend. In the wake of the accident, her friends drift away, her family falls apart, and her boyfriend cheats.  
The grief is more than she can handle, so she finds escape at the bottom of a bottle of painkillers. Taking the pills makes her brother alive again, if only in her head. Seeing and talking to her brother as if he were still alive is the only thing that keeps her going. Until Logan King moves to town. 
Logan sees past the mask of pristine popularity she wears in public and he’s the only one who can tell she hasn’t moved on. His uncanny ability to read her forces her to open up and she starts to fall for him, no matter how unwilling she is to admit it. But Emmy isn’t the only one keeping secrets and when a close brush with death sparks events that bring everything to light, Emmy will have to decide what’s more important: learning how to forgive and move on, or holding onto the pills and the ghost of her past.

Seven hundred years ago, disaster forced humanity to abandon Earth. Life on the colony ship New Edinburgh is all sixteen-year-old Lilliane, the best programmer in her year at the Institute, has ever known. 
A week ago, Lilliane woke up in a life-pod. Its destination? Earth itself. Because it’s time to rebuild. It’s up to Lilliane and the four other survivors of the New Edinburgh to reclaim humanity’s ancestral home. 
Today, the life pod arrived at Lady Diana–the lunar holding station that was once the luxury holiday destination for Earth’s super-rich. It’s supposed to be a good place. A safe place. 
Not anymore. 
Today, Lady Di is a battlefield. Because while Lilliane and her friends thought they they were the only humans left, somebody else got to Lady Di first. 
And he will stop at nothing to keep Lilliane from ever getting to Earth.

FEBRUARY ROUNDUP

Hello,

February was a difficult month for me. With the end of the semester fast approaching and all my major subjects suddenly throwing every project right in front of my face, I had to focus on my studies (as freaking always!).

I wanted to read a lot of books, I have a good amount of them on my shelf and on my kindle app but yeah, school is holding me down. Because of the many things I had to do together with my really great time management, I barely finish anything. at all. In fact, I only finished The Eye of Minds last month which, by the way, is a freaking record (because ever since I started book blogging I've read a minimum amount of three books a month, I think). The worse part of it is that I didn't enjoy it.
