February Wrap Up

February was a rough month for me. I went two whole weeks without touching a single book. I just hit a deep reading slump as soon as I got House of Sky and Breath in my hands! I had to take some time off from reading so I could find my love for it again. I made reading a chore rather than something I can do for fun. Even though I took the two weeks off I still read five books, which is amazing! Lets see what I read and what I rated them.

What I Read

“Weather Girl” By Rachel Lynn Solomon

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Ari is working her dream job as the weather girl for the local news station and her boss happens to be her childhood hero, Torrance Hale. The only issue is that Torrance isn’t the best mentor, she is way too focused on making her ex husbands life difficult rather than to help Ari grow in her profession. The problem with this is that it creates a hostile work environment.

When a work Christmas party gets out of hand, Ari and her sports reporter co-worker Russell devise a plan to get their bosses back together and to bring happiness and structure back to the news station.

Now that Ari and Russell are working so closely together maybe more than just one relationship can blossom.

“The Last Thing He Told Me” By Laura Dave

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Hannah’s life gets thrown for a loop when she receives a note from her husband saying “Protect Her”. Hannah knows she is meant to protect her step daughter Bailey, who has already had a troubled life and most importantly who hates her. Why can’t her husband just tell this to her face, why send a note? Protect her from what?

When her husbands boss gets arrested and the FBI start knocking on her door and her husband is no where to be found she decides to start taking things into her own hands.

Taking her scared step daughter all the way to Texas, they start to unravel a very unsettling truth. Is her husband really who she thought he was?

“The Unhoneymooners” By Christina Lauren

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Olive is the complete polar opposite of her twin sister Ami. Olive is just unlucky in all aspects of life where as her sister who is getting married to a nearly perfect guy can now get married for practically nothing when she wins contest after contest to help her plan her dream wedding.

However, on the wedding day everyone comes down with food poisoning except for Olive and her arch nemesis Ethan, the grooms brother. This leaves the Honeymoon up for grabs and there is no way unemployed Olive is going to sit and mope in her lonely apartment while her enemy gets to enjoy an all paid trip to Hawaii.

The catch? They have to put all hatred aside to put on the perfect show of a happily newlywed couple so they don’t get caught committing fraud. Can these two put their hate aside to enjoy a once in a life time vacation or will they get caught in all their lies?

“It Ends With Us” By Colleen Hoover

Rating: 5 out of 5.

She moved from Maine to Boston and quickly met a very attractive Neurosurgeon name Ryle on the top of an apartment building. Both had a lot on their minds so these two strangers decided to open up to each other revealing their naked truths. They quickly got along but this would need to be their first and only time meeting because Ryle only does one night stands and Lily wants a life partner.

Fast forward six months and Lily and Ryle’s paths cross again but this time they can’t seem to stay away from each other. Lily is kind, sweet and caring while Ryle is hot headed, arrogant and extremally stubborn. The most unlikely pair but what do they say? Oh yeah, opposites attract.

Life seems to be going pretty well for the happy couple, until a man from Lily’s past comes racing back into her life. How will this affect their relationship?

“I can appreciate my body in a bikini and still want to set fire to the patriarchy.”

Direct quote from “The Unhoneymooners”

“This is the thing about good and evil. They aren’t so far apart—and they often start from the same valiant place of wanting something to be different.”

Direct quote from “The Last Thing He Told Me”

“That’s the thing about depression. You can know it’s there, know it’s part of you, but you can go ages without seeing it. It lives with you, an invisible roommate, up until the time you start sinking, and then it sprawls itself across your couch and kicks its feet up on your coffee table and uses up all the hot water. Never pays its half of the rent, either.”
