So we have successfully survived the first 31 days of 2015. The cold weather, snow, rain and horrible wind made sure that I have spent a lot of time indoor wrapped up in a blanket, cup of gingerbread green tea in my hand and book in the other. So I smashed the JANUARY READING CHALLENGE!!
And since January has ended, it's time to welcome February - the shortest member of his family. But February is special in its own way. February 14th aka VALENTINE'S DAY is celebrated all over the world. People in love spend awful amount of money on chocolates, flowers and gifts.
So since, I am one of those people who are still single, I have decided to spend my February reading love stories!!! 7 books, 6 beautiful love stories. Now, I now what you might think.. 7 books but only 6 love stories? Well, it all becomes clear when you see the list. I promise.
And of course one of these love stories will be this month's read for #ZCbookclub ! So keep reading the blog and keep checking mine ( @zuzvystrcilova ) and Sara's ( @carpelibrumgirl ) Instagram account for updates.
So let me share with you my pink & purple TBR list for February 2015.
FEBRUARY READING CHALLENGE
A MIDSUMMER'S NIGHTMARE by Kody Keplinger
Sun, Sex and...Step-Brothers.
Another sizing story from Hamilton High.
Whitley's dream summer of shopping, partying and tanning on the beach has just turned into a nightmare. Because her Dad didn't tell her he doesn't live by the beach any more, or that he's got himself a fiancee. A fiancee whose son just happens to be what's-his-name from last week's drunken graduation party hook up. Awkward much?
As if the summer couldn't get worse, Dad seems to forget Whitley's even there. She doesn't fit in with his perfect new country club family, and Whitley does what any girl lucky enough to go all summer unsupervised does: she parties. Hard.
So hard that she doesn't even notice the good things right under her nose...
