BOOKS - My February Reading List.

At the beginning of this year I said that I would read more books. Well, it's now February and I've not even started a new book or finished the one I was reading. Not a good start. Before Christmas I began reading the Hunger Games and I've still got 200 pages to go, but I'm losing interest as it goes along, so I don't know if I will finish it or not. Do you think I should? Anyway, these are the books that I received at Christmas and I'm planning on getting them read before April. It's a few months away, but I'm a slow reader!

Naked Heat by 'Richard Castle'.
When New York's most vicious gossip columnist is found dead, Heat uncovers a gallery of high profile suspects. Heat's investigation is complicated by her surprise reunion with superstar magazine journalist Jameson Rook. Sexual tension fills the air as Heat and Rook embark on a search for a killer among celebrities and mobsters, singers and hookers, pro athletes and shamed politicians.
I adore the TV series (Castle), so I bought the first book that was released and read it within a few days. It wasn't too bad, but it didn't excite me too much. There was a lot of characters and it was a bit hard to follow. But I'm giving the others in the series a chance though and my friend got me the second book for Christmas, so I'm looking forward to see how this one turns out.

Paper Towns by John Green
Quentin has always loved Margo Roth Spiegelman, for Margo (and her adventures) are the stuff of legend at their high school. So when she one day climbs through his window and summons him on an all-night road trip of revenge he cannot help but follow.
I've read two of John Greens books so far (TFiOS & LfA) and the hype around them didn't really live up to my expections. I actually enjoyed Looking for Alaska a lot more than I did the ever-so-popular The Fault in our Stars. But I got an exchange for this one and I'm just going to give it a go and see if I can be bothered with any more of his books.

Let It Snow by John Green & Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle
An ill-timed storm on Christmas Eve buries the residents of Gracetown under multiple feet of snow and causes quite a bit of chaos. One brave soul ventures out into the storm from her stranded train and sets off a chain of events that will change quite a few lives. Over the next three days one girl takes a risky shortcut with an adorable stranger, three friends set out to win a race to the Waffle House (and the hash brown spoils), and the fate of a teacup pig falls into the hands of a lovesick barista.
Another John Green book! I bought this on a 2 for 1 offer and just thought I might as well. Plus this book is a collaboration, so maybe it'll be a bit better than the previous ones I've read.

Have you read any of these books? Thoughts on them? Which should I delve into first?
