My February Reads

February was great even though I still had my internship most of the time but I read and read and read. So I'm happy with myself and so it looks good with reaching my goal of 150 books in 2011.So here's what I read:

1. City of Ghosts (Downside Ghosts, #3) by Stacia Kane
I can't believe I waited so long with reading this one. Perhaps I was just too scared of the long wait for book 4. I already can't wait to get my hands on that one. I loved how much we saw of the emotional development even though it sometimes was a bit too much of Chess' worrying for my taste. A great book and I highly recommend this series. Did I mention that this is one of the rare books BF gave 5 stars? Yep he did. *g*

2. Moonlight Temptation (Lucani Lovers #4) by Stephanie Julian (my review)
I really like how Steph writes. Her characters are always so likable and fleshed out. I was so happy to finally read Evie's story and Ryan totally rocked. Very hot and entertaining.

3. Angel of Vengeance by Trevor Munson (my review)
The book that inspired Moonlight but didn't feel like it at all. I was rather disappointed. It didn' fell like the series which for me always had a urban fantasy/PNR feel. It was more of a noir book. But that put aside the writing just didn't grab me. It's completely written our of first person present and the writing itself was too detached for my taste. It gave a bit of background info about Mike but without that I wouldn't have kept reading.
4. Metatropolis: Cascadia by Jay Lake (my review)
I finally finished the audiobook and yes I liked it. The narration was mostly awesome and the stories were thought-provoking and entertaining. I'm sure I will get more audiobooks in the future.
5. The Zero Dog War (Zero Dog Missions, #1) by Keith Melton (my review)
OMG this book is made of awesome and gelatin. It's such a fabulous hilarious UF setting- loved how everything fit together even though it was that crazy. I loved it to pieces and I highly recommend it to everyone who likes a funny book which also has some depth.

6. Dark and Stormy Knights by P.N. Elrod
Yes I did it again and didn't read all the stories in this one but I really like the ones I devoured. I loved Ilona's story and OMG after reading Vicki Pettersson's story I can't wait to get Neon Graveyard. And I so felt for Skamar I have to admit I perhaps cried a bit. Great one!

7. The Perfect Play (Play by Play, #1) by Jaci Burton
Look at this cover and let me tell you the book was just as good as its cover. WOW, I loved the characters and how the story unfolded and it was mighty hot. I know I can't wait for the next one.

8. Hot Finish (Fast Track, #3) by Erin McCarthy
Again why did I wait so long? I have no idea. Finally Rider and Suzanne's story and I actually liked it. It was a bit slow at parts and more than once was I looking like this O_o but I didn't expect anything else with those two. Yep still loving the series and waiting for the next one.

9. Pushing Her Boundaries by Julia Rachel Barrett (my review)
This one was a last minute addition to my reading  list but after Julia told me about what it was I just couldn't resist. Crazy canoe trips and a very nice hero. Loved it!

10. Dreams of a Dark Warrior (Immortals After Dark, #11) by Kresley Cole
Finally Regin books- god how I love this series. It's always surpring that the suspense is still so high even though some books take place at a time we already experienced in another book. I love her characters and how fun and daring they are.  I have to say I expected Aiden to be different but all in all this story made me happy.

11. Seven Souls A Leaping by K.F. Zuzulo, Lisa Pietsch, Heather Long (my review)
Very different setting of a pagan paranormal world and I was surprised that all 3 stories were that much connected. I liked some parts of it, some weren't my taste but the last story was awesome. Something different in the all so monotone urban fantasy world.

12. This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, #5) by Jeaniene Frost
*huge grin* I love Cat & Bones and I really liked this one. How I missed to them happy together. *happy sigh* And I love Vlad- I so want his book. BUT I have to say I kind of expected more of chapter 21 after all this buzz.

13. Wilder's Mate (Bloodhounds, #1) by Moira Rogers
This book was perfect. I loved the characters and the setting and just everything about it. The hero was swoon worthy and I was sad that the book was over that fast. Can't wait to get the next one. Review to come!

14. River Marked (Mercedes Thompson, #6) by Patricia Briggs
It seems this month was all about getting the next book in series I love. I was so excited for River Marked but perhaps a bit too much. It was really good but still I was disappointed. It was very slow in the middle and it wasn't as addicting as the previous books in this series. That doesn't mean I didn't like it- I did but just not as much as I wanted.

That was my February, how was yours? Any recs I should check out?
