random reads

It is already time for a new Random Reads, hosted by I’m Loving Books! Random.org decided that in February I should read book #31 on my TBR list, Vicious by Victoria Schwab. I absolutely loved it! You can read my full review of Vicious here. In March I will be reading Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys. This was book # 20 on my list, added June 16, 2012.

From Goodreads:

“It’s 1950, and as the French Quarter of New Orleans simmers with secrets, seventeen-year-old Josie Moraine is silently stirring a pot of her own. Known among locals as the daughter of a brothel prostitute, Josie wants more out of life than the Big Easy has to offer.

She devises a plan get out, but a mysterious death in the Quarter leaves Josie tangled in an investigation that will challenge her allegiance to her mother, her conscience, and Willie Woodley, the brusque madam on Conti Street. Josie is caught between the dream of an elite college and a clandestine underworld. New Orleans lures her in her quest for truth, dangling temptation at every turn, and escalating to the ultimate test.

With characters as captivating as those in her internationally bestselling novel Between Shades of Gray, Ruta Sepetys skillfully creates a rich story of secrets, lies, and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destiny.”

And just because I am a big nerd, here is my February in review:
