Overall it was a pretty good collection of books. Unfortunately I haven't been keeping up with my reviewing as well as I would have liked, I still have six unreviewed books left from February. Hopefully that is something I'll be better at keeping up with in March, even if it means cutting a little into my reading time.

Some February Stats:
  • Adult Fiction: 14/26
  • Memoirs: 4/26
  • Young Adult: 8/26
  • Audio Books: 3/26
  • Short Story Collections: 1/26
  • Plays: 1/26
  • Favourite Adult Book of the Month: The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
  • Favourite YA Book of the Month: Delirium by Lauren Oliver
  • Favourite Memoir of the Month: Half in Love by Linda Gray Sexton
  • Nearly Favourite Books of the Month: So Much Pretty by Cara Hoffman, The Tempest by William Shakespeare, Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys, The Dream of Perpetual Motion by Dexter Palmer, The Other Life by Ellen Meister, Where She Went by Gayle Forman
  • Books Purchased: None! Although my January purchase did arrive. Total amount of money spent on books so far in 2011 is only $15.76. I do have a coupon and some books I've been lusting over that will likely be purchased in March. 
How was your February reading-wise? Did you read any incredible books this month? I'm definitely open to recommendations.
