The Sunday Salon: February Books Recap [3.5.2011]

Good morning! How is everyone today?

I am having a rough weekend back/neck/head-wise but it has forced me to actually get some reading done. I finished both Matched by Ally Condie and The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown yesterday. And today, I am starting the book that at least 7000 of you told me to read after my Top Ten Tuesday post: The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.

Now, as for February. I read:

  1. Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
  2. Something Rotten by Jasper Fforde (audio)(reread)
  3. The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder
  4. Great House by Nicole Krauss
  5. First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde (audio)(reread)
  6. A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
  7. Wither by Lauren DeStefano

Favorite: Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares
Least Favorite: Great House

What was your favorite February read?

    I’m glad that you’ll be starting The Handmaid’s Tale soon! But I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling well. Hope that gets better soon 🙂

    I LOVE Dash & Lily!!

    My favorite February read was definitely The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons. It’ll probably be one of my favorite for the whole year.

    Haha, finally! Hope you’ll love The Handmaid’s Tale!

    I’ve heard lots of good things about both Matched and The Weird Sisters. I hope you enjoy The Handmaid’s Tale – I’ve actually never read it, but perhaps I should?

    The Goon Squad rocked my world! It will most definitely end up on my favorites for the year. I’m listening to Weird Sisters right now, and I am loving it!

    I had a rough weekend too (food poisoning) but managed to put a big dent into The Little Stranger since I was unable to do much else.

    I read half of Wither in February but then put it off since it isn’t coming out for awhile. I tend to read things too early and then forget all about them when I need to write the review. What I read of it, I liked.
