January: Month in Review + Book of the Month Giveaway

Dystopian February:
Some of you may remember that I did a HUGE dystopian event in August, which was a lot of fun. I reviewed over 30 dystopian/post-apocalytpic books, did some giveaways, etc. However, it was also really hard on my blog scheduling. I'm still going to be doing a lot of dystopian stuff to join Presenting Lenore in the celebration, but I won't be doing exclusively dystopian content. There will be quite a few giveaways involved!

I had a good reading month. My average rating was 3.6. How exciting is that?

Book of the Month Giveaway:
One of my favorites this month was Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I think the Lunar Chronicles is just getting better as it goes along, and I want to share the magic with one of my lucky readers. For more information, check out my review. If the winner has not yet read Cinder and would prefer a copy of that, I'll purchase that instead.

The book will be sent from Amazon or TBD depending on where you live, so the contest is international, y'all!

A 3.6 rating is exciting. Glad that you enjoyed most of the books :). Also, I didn't know there was a dystopian February. Sounds like a lot of work and hope you won't be too stressed with all the posts!

Yay another dystopian month! I really enjoyed August. I'm not the biggest dystopian reader, and I usually get let down by them, or I don't even know where to start in finding a good one. But I can trust your reviews on the genre, since you read it so much more than I do.

Love the book of the month! Weeee! I am starting The Reece Malcolm List (hopefully) today, but it's Friday so I never actually end up reading today.

I'm glad too! Well, it should be pretty calm, since I'm not going all out like last time. There should be just over 50% dystopian reviews.

I've read a bunch I didn't like already. Woo! I'm weeding them out for you!

Seriously, you are amazing at reading all these books in only a month! When is the dystopian event? In August again? I want to join in! :D
