February 2017: The Month Of Kitsunes, Greek Myths, Shinigamis and… Spider-Man Music? {Monthly Wrap Up}

February 2017

Hi and welcome to my February wrap up!

February has been filled with many new obsessions. I don’t think I’ve ever read more in my life, I fell in love with a new fantasy book series on Japanese mythology, I got back into some Greek mythology fantasy books, I fell deeper into the black hole that is anime and I discovered some new (to me) music.

But… it also caused a bit of a blogging slump and for that I’d like to apologize to my blogger friends. I’ve been so sucked into my new obsessions that I’ve been slacking on blogging. I haven’t felt like writing a lot of posts so I stuck with just the basic: Top Ten Tuesday posts and reviews. I’ve also been so behind on commenting. So… I’m really sorry! Here’s hoping March will be better on that front.

Anyway, here’s my wrap up of all those obsessions:

for Paper Princess

What it’s about:

From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.

These Royals will ruin you…

Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone.

Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.

Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.

He might be right.

Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.

Series I Still Want To Finish / Catch Up With Before The End Of The Year

to-finish-2016

Let’s celebrate! Last week I officially reached my Goodreads goal of reading 70 books in 2016. Yay! So, with that challenge complete and still a whole month to go before the end of the year, I figured I’d set myself another challenge. Why don’t I try to finally finish and/or catch up with some series that have been on my TBR for too long already?

Also, I actually wanted to read some of these books already for the Tome Topple Readathon, but that readathon started November 19th and I haven’t started any book yet so I kind of failed  big time there. But hey, I figure that if I still read them before the end of the year, it’s still ok-ish…

So without further ado, this is my rather ambitious TBR list for the rest of the year:
