Now, I'm sure you've noticed from the titles of the last few books I've read this month that I really enjoy reading books in the fantasy genre. I'd also like to point out that the three books : A Time for Witches, Reckless Revolution, and Gilded Delirium, are actually Sparks Notes for History. Basically, the authors took the Witch Hunts of Salem, the Revolutionary War and the Gilded Age and wrote books based in those time periods to help kids study their history. They were interesting books, but thankfully they only cost a $1 each. They most likely will NOT be staying in my book collection. I'll probably never read them again.
The last TWO book on my February list are re-reads from a number of years ago (we're talking college and before college). The first four Tamora Pierce books are the story of the mother of the main character in the last two books. ALOT of fun reading this month. Hopefully, March will yield a list of books that were both entertaining AND educational with a few non-fiction thrown in for good measure.
