Hello lovelies! I hope you’ve all had a lovely month. How are we all feeling with Boris’ announcement that we’ll be phasing out of lockdown ready for summer? I am feeling hopeful. I am so ready for meals out and to be able to see my family properly again. I’m not going to lie though, I did a bit rubbish with reading this month. I DNF’d a couple books, and I didn’t get through lots of extras. But I managed to get through my planned TBR. Here’s what I thought to my February Reads:
BOOK CLUB READ: The Secret Barrister
I didn’t actually finish this book this month. I gave it a go. I tried so hard with it. But I’ve got to say I found it so boring. I was hoping it would be a bit like some of the medical memoirs that I’d read by doctors about their jobs and lives, where it’s super engaging and has light moments in it too. But I was left disappointed. I found that I read like a class lecture or a text book and I wasn’t engaged at all. I managed to push myself to 100 pages and then I just had to give up.
The Once and Future Witches – Alix E. Harrow
Five Stars!!! I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down and it was so, so good. I have posted a full review for this so go give it a nosy if you want to know more.
Fabulous Finn – Dave Wardell with Lynne Barrett-Lee
This book was a non-fiction about a police handler and his dog that nearly died on duty. I believe they went on Britain’s Got Talent a couple years ago too to share their story. I enjoyed the book, it had me crying in places and I think Finn is a terrific, strong and brave dog and I hope they manage to get their law for harsher punishment for people that harm service animals. 3.5 Stars.
The Man Who Didn’t Call – Rosie Walsh
I loved this book. I thought it was such a lovely story that keeps you enthralled all the way through. It takes you through so many emotions and I loved the characters. Five Stars!!
The Assassin’s Blade – Sarah J Maas
I didn’t finish this book. And I know Maas is a massively loved YA fantasy author and I’m not hating on her work but I just think it really isn’t for me. I didn’t have high hopes after I really couldn’t get on with ACOTR by her, but I tried this from a different series of hers and I got through 4 pages and had to put it down. I just found it boring to read.
Unnatural Causes -Dr Richard Shepherd
I loved this book. I wasn’t planning to read it but a lovely fellow blogger sent me a copy as a RAOK and we buddy read it together. The book was so interesting and very well put together, and I made a lovely friend from reading it! 4 Stars!
Kill Joy – Holly Jackson
I HAD TO READ IT. It is the prequel to A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder. And by god has it got me excited for the 3rd book that is coming out next year. I enjoyed it so much my only jibe is I wish it was longer. 5 Stars!!
So that is everything that I read in February and now lets get to what I am reading in March:
Book Club Read: My Sister, The Serial Killer – Oyinkan Braithwaite
Book one: The Ten Thousand Doors of January – Alix E Harrow
Book Two: 22 Dead Little Bodies – Stuart MacBride
Book Three: Wuthering Heights – Emily Brontë
Book Four: The Chain – Adrian Mckinty
Book Five: The Betrayals – Bridget Collins
That’s everything I have picked for March. Keep checking back on the site throughout the month for reviews! Take care lovelies.
