Required Reading: February

January has come and gone…and it’s been a very good reading month, if I do say so myself. I read a total of 12 books — can you believe that? And I finished all Required Reading books too! Here’s a recap:

That was pretty good, yes? I think the books I read in January were pretty good, too, and I enjoyed most of them. I still ended up getting more books so my TBR pile is still solidly on 128. Oh well, I’ll find a way to get that number down.

Did you join last month’s Required Reading challenge? How did you do?

Now we’re on to February!

Required Reading: February

Last year’s Required Reading theme was a bit cliche — love. I know, right? This year, let’s deviate from that a little a lot. Well, okay maybe it’s still related to love because I am returning to one of the first things I loved in science fiction: zombies.

I’m calling an early zombie fiction reading time for this year, because it’s been a while since I last read a zombie book. I will probably have another zombie reading marathon before Blackout‘s release, but I figure a zombie month now should prepare me for that.

Plus I have some zombie books staring at me from my TBR, and two of the books there  has been on my TBR since 2010. That’s almost 2 years ago, friends. Time to get it off the TBR.

Zombie-fied Reading List:

  • The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell
  • The Enemy by Charlie Higson
  • Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Mmm brains. I mean books. :)

There are some non-zombie books I will be reading, though, but I’m not sure how I will be able to fit them in my schedule. Well, one of them, anyway. Thank goodness for readalongs.

  • The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – Goodreads book club discussion
  • Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin – Chunkster Challenge Book # 1. Good luck with this. :P

      I haven’t yet, but I will as soon as I finish the ebook I’m reading. Are we ready to start? :D Maybe we should start a thread?

      • Haven’t started yet! but I brought the book with me to the office so I can read during free time. Will you be kind enough to start a thread? So that others who are interested can join in too? :)

  2. And here’s mine! :D

    Good luck with the GoT readalong! I hope you guys will enjoy it – gore, violence, and dead characters notwithstanding! :D

  3. I love the zombie theme! The Reapers Are The Angels is bleak, but good. Also my boyfriend read the Enemy and pretty much devoured it in one day.

    AND YAY GAME OF THRONES! I hope you fall in love with it. It is MINDBLOWING!
