March TBR – February Wrap up

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 BrontΓ«

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.

  1. Great wrap-up! I loved The Once and Future Witches and so glad you did too (about to check out your review!), and The Ten Thousand Doors of January is also brilliant. I’m reading The Betrayals in March as well, so I’m excited to see what we both think of that! Have a brilliant month 😊
