It’s nearly half way through March, and I realised I still haven’t done a wrap up post for February. For February, my reading theme was historical mysteries, and I had a list of four books that I wanted to pick up (see February reading plans here), besides what I had on NetGalley and what I had left over from January. I ended up reading only two of the mysteries that I had picked (though I have read the other two this month), but I did read four NetGalley books, and finish my pending January reads to make a total of seven books. But two of these were graphic novels, so overall this was a slower reading month.
Anyway, since I am feeling much too lazy to do a proper wrap up, I am just going to post the covers of the books read, with links to my full reviews below.
- Murder in Abyssinia by Julie Birmant and Clément Oubrerie (review here)
- Shelley: Vol 1: Percy Shelly by David Vandermeulen, Daniel Casanave, and Patrice Larcenet (review here)
- The Porpoise by Mark Haddon (review here)
- Poland by James Michener (review here)
- One Corpse Too Many by Ellis Peters (review here)
- A Country Rivalry by Sasha Morgan (review here)
- Speaking From Among the Bones by Alan Bradley (review here)
For March, like February, I’ve picked a genre rather than a theme as such and plan to read the young adult books on my TBR pile. First I, of course, finished the books I had left over from my February list, A Murder on Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey (review here) and Sovereign by C.J. Sansom (review here).
I also have four books pending on NetGalley, Ever Alice by H.J. Ramsay, Golden Pavements by Pamela Brown (this is the third of the Blue Door series, books 1 and 2, I’ve reviewed here and here), The Catherine Howard Conspiracy by Alexandra Walsh, and The Forest of Wool and Steel by Natsu Miyashita. Of young adult books, my theme, I want to read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas (this I’ve actually finished), The Sun is also a Star by Nicola Yoon, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, Divergent by Veronica Roth, and the Cruel Prince by Holly Black. (This is very ambitious I know but I’m not working this month so plenty of free time).
Any books on these lists that you’ve read or plan to? What did you think of them? How was your February reading and what plans for March? I look forward to hearing all about them!
