February is Young Adult Fiction Month... For me at least.

This is just quick post to let you guys know that I am indeed starting YA month. Have lots of books to review but I'm putting it all off for the weekend (which I think may be a very bad idea, since I plan to watch Black Swan with friends-who-dare-to-do-so-despite-warning on Saturday and that might fuel my inherent procrastination. I really, really like movies where someone goes insane and does dangerous stuff. Please don't judge me.) Good luck to me.

These are just a couple of books in the February list:
  • Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
  • I Am Number Four - Pittacus Lore
  • White Cat - Holly Black
  • Leviathan - Scott Westerfeld
  • Matched - Ally Condie
  • The Sky Is Everywhere - Jandy Nelson
  • The Hunger Games trilogy - Suzanne Collins
  • and many, many more.
Also, if you think you know a YA novel not in this list and that I should definitely read, please tell me in the comments and why. Please. The fate of the universe depends on it.

I am not kidding.

Oh, and an advanced happy Valentine's day to everyone. Spread the luuurrve.

February Fever

It's only a week before that darn second month is upon us... *sigh*. Did January really pass that quickly? I don't feel like I've accomplished anything (yet) this 2011, and already there's only 11 months to go before the speculated end-of-the-world comes. I am not ready.

Well, to make things a little bit more exciting, I've decided to have a set theme for every month I review books. More specifically, I plan to make February the "Paranormal YA Romance slash Fantasy slash any other sub-genres you can think of" month. I only have a few more pages to go with Beautiful Creatures (I know, I'm a little bit late!) and I've already planned a review for a certain book-turned-movie due to come out this month on the 18th. (Hint: It stars Alex Pettyfer.) For March, I might go with a Thriller vibe since I WANTWANTWANT to read a Stephen King book since forever. To the rest of the months, I'd let you decide! In polls! Yay!

I meant 'yay' as in 'I finally found an excuse to use polls in my blog'. Go figure.

In short, lotsa excitement and stuff.

Of course, there is a giant loophole to this thing: It might be that I read a book that's not really in the particular month's theme. So, as my solution, I'm willing to make Special Reviews for these Very Special Books.

What about you? Has the New Year blues caught up with you yet? Want me to come up to you with a chainsaw instead? No, I didn't think so, either.
