    I don’t know any of these books but sounds like you had a good reading month. I hope that March will be just as good. Have a wonderful new month. Happy reading.

    I love that dog! I think I need to find a copy of Strange Star – it sounds really interesting. Although I think I may have to find a used copy because it seems I can’t grab it for my Kindle and my library doesn’t have it either.

      I love that dog too – it’s the Dude – he’s 12 now but he still gets treated like a big baby!
      I must have got lucky with Strange Star – looking forward to reading a few of these I picked up recently – all blogger recommendations.

    I love that cover for The Clockwork Dynasty! Looks like you did very well for February! Luckily we have a few more days in March, that’s enough for me to squeeze in an extra book:-)

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, March is the month in which I finally catch up – lol!! Well, I have great optimism that that will be the case.
      Lynn 😀

  4. AvalinahsBooks

    That is the nicest cover in my opinion too. Another reincarnation/not dying book?
    I have finished Miranda and Caliban recently too 🙂 did a book haul today and realized I’d requested it and read it the same month! Almost never happens 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well done you! I need to catch up with all my reviews – I seem to have let them get behind and it’s something of a slippery slope!
      Lynn 😀

    So happy to see that you keep enjoying the Toby Daye series! It’s no spoiler if I tell you that the next books are even more intriguing… 🙂
    (and I can’t wait to read you comments!)

    • @lynnsbooks

      Ohh, how exciting – and not a spoiler at all! Just makes me even more anxious about picking the next one up.
      Lynn 😀

    All in all, a very busy month of February, I think.

    • @lynnsbooks

      It was busy – and short! It just flew didn’t it.
      Lynn 😀

    What a fabulous collection of books! And I’m with you regarding the speed at which February whizzed past – where did it go? I love the look of Windsinger and Tuck Everlasting looks a really interesting book. Have a great reading March:).

  8. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Looks like you have a lot of reviews coming down the pipeline!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know – I can’t believe how quickly I’ve got behind!
      Lynn 😀

  9. Danya @ Fine Print

    Island of Exiles! YAY! I really hope you like it, Lynn. 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah – I loved your review so thought I’d check this one out too.
      Lynn 😀

    Looks like a great month to me 🙂 Love the cover for Empress of the Fall

    Lynn, I agree February really did fly by! You do still seem to have a read a really good amount and I hope you enjoy your new books. I also love that photo 😀

  12. Amanda @Cover2CoverMom

    Ahhhh Tuck Everlasting! I’ve actually never read the book itself, but I adored the film adaptation.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I didn’t know there was an adaptation – I will wait until I’ve read it and check it out.
      Lynn 😀
