Road Trip Wednesday #170 Best Books

YA Highway RTW

This week on Road Trip Wednesday, YA Highway asks the question:

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

Hm … All of the books I’ve read in the month of February were great. I started off the month with Suzanne Collin’s THE HUNGER GAMES series, finished Lauren Kate’s FALLEN series with RAPTURE, read The 19th Year series, AFTER DARK and the sequel, DAY AFTER by Emi Gayle–both awesome–and I rounded out the month with Michael Scott’s final book in The Secrets of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, THE ENCHANTRESS. Lucky for me, my line edits haven’t begun on TIED, so I’ve had more free time to read everyone else’s stuff for a change.

There were two books I gave 5 Stars to in February — well, one book actually and one series of books.

THE HUNGER GAMES series by Suzanne Collins was truly an incredible, pull-you-in-and-refuse-to-let-you-go story, and for that reason, it was my favorite series for the month of February.

BUT … DAY AFTER by Emi Gayle, was my favorite book for the month.

Both of these reads, although YA, are completely different and therefore can’t really be compared against each other. Dystopian vs Urban Fantasy. I am, and have always been, the biggest fantasy fan, and DAY AFTER delivered for me in that category. It’s not due for official release until May, though, and you’ll have to read AFTER DARK first, too! 😉

So, you guys? Favorite books for February?

  1. I’m still torn on the Hunger Games series. I like the first two books, but the third one… I don’t know, it fell a little flat for me (maybe because I read so many spoilers ahead of time! Shame on me). I have a hard time making up my mind about series — I’m still conflicted on whether I liked Divergent/Insurgent. Sounds like you had a good month of reading, though!

    • It took me about a week after reading the entire Hunger Games series to even form an opinion on it. I was like, WTH? But all in all it kept me reading solid for four days straight. To me, that’s the mark of a good story–the ones that you can’t stop thinking about.

      I haven’t read Divergent/Insurgent yet. Let me know your thoughts on them when you figure them out–maybe I’ll start that series, too.

      Good reading month for sure! Thanks for you thoughts, Nickie. 😉
