Another month is behind us and the time has come for me to pick my Top Pick of February 2012. This was a great reading month for me and I managed to read/listen to 17 books! I hope that I can keep this pace up as I really want to hit 125+ books read for the year. At my current rate I should read around 160 books. Which would be awesome. But ya’ll didn’t come here for that…you want to know what book was my favorite of the month. Well, first lets start with the nominees:
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (Audio)
Timepiece (Hourglass, Book 2) by Myra McEntire (ARC)
Social Suicide (Deadly Cool, Book 2) by Gemma Halliday (ARC)
Tough choices all! Especially since the first books of both Gemma Halliday and Myra McEntire were each Top 12 list winners of previous months. But of the three only one left me a complete and utter wreck after reading it and that book was *drumroll please*
Timepiece by Myra McEntire!!
This book almost shattered me. It is such a roller coaster ride and I couldn’t put it down until I have learned ALL THE THINGS. Readers of Hourglass will love this one. Kaleb is the ONLY one who could have told this part of the story. It is brilliant and leaves me a bit fearful of McEntire’s next book…each one gets closer and closer to killing me. Not sure my soul can take another book of hers…but if she publishes it…then I will read it. Risk of death or no….I won’t be able to stop myself.
