February Stack

I've had the reading bug for months now and so far in 2012, I've devoured 5 books. My goal is to read 50 by the time the year is over, so if I keep up at this pace I should make it! Here's the stack for February:

*Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
*A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
*Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
*Sweetly by Jackson Pearce
*Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kahling
*The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
*Annexed by Sharon Dogar

I'm excited to really dive in. I've already started Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and so far its SO witty and well-written.

Today was another day off for me and I spent it doing... drumroll please... absolutely nothing. HA. Well that's not entirely true: I did some art journal pages, showered, and a few other things but basically nothing. I fully anticipate a similar day tomorrow including another blog post.

Well, back to my evening of cherry Kool-Aid and our marathon of It's Always Sunny in Philedelphia!

I read the first two books of Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver series last year and I couldn't put it down, I've been meaning to get the third book for ages but just not got around to it yet. I'm currently re-reading the Touch The Dark series by Karen Chance which are really good, but kinda depends if you like Vampire novels or not I guess. I would be interested to see what you think of the other books in your pile because after having devoured The Hunger Games last month I'm at a bit of a loss for a new book to read.
