Looking at this post reminds me of your Negative Reviews post and how you said a majority of your reviews were positive - proof, here, that you also know how to pick books you like and not fall to hype/high expectations, which I am still trying to do. (Also that Brodi Ashton and E. Lockhart seem to write pretty great books :D).

Wow it was a pretty good month for you, lots of high ratings. No covetted 5's though. Love your pick for book of the month (DUH!) So sad that I didn't win Just One Day. Happy 2013 Christina!

Whoa. I once again bow to your reading prowess. But it's good to see you mostly enjoyed the books you've read this month!

And GAH! An Easy giveaway?! I freaking loved that book! I NEED it on my shelf!

Truth! Maybe sorting this well will help people realize that I'm not TRYING to read books I don't like. I try to read books I think I'll enjoy, because this is my hobby, my release at the end of the day.

They do! I recommend both!

Nope! There were a couple I wanted to give five stars too, but none where I didn't have the slightest reservations.

Sorry, dudette!

You do need it on your shelf!
