My week in books 25th Feb- 3rd March

This week has been a haze of coursework and project work.
However I did manage to finish reading Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans.

I'm giving this book 3 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed it but the ending ruined it for me. We know from the beginning that Felicia, the main character, is dead, but it's how she died that annoyed me. I just found it stupid and so preventable. I am going to read the sequel though as I want to find out what happens next.

I got several ebooks this week;

All of the ebooks were free except Fall From Grace (Mad World) by Christine Zolendz.

Can't believe it's March already! And I still haven't gotten around to seeing Beautiful Creatures... hopefully next weekend :)
