Well February came and went. It was an exciting month with a snow storm and lots of rain and wind, but I was able to survive it all by snuggling up next to a fire with some really good books.
I managed to read a total of 16 books, two less than last month, but it is a short month. I enjoyed almost all of them, which is always a good way to end a month.
Hold Back the Tide was a really good read, with great characters and a scary creature.
Down Comes the Night was a bit of a let down. I just never connected with the characters or the story.
Five Total Strangers was quite the page turner that had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
League of Dragons was the final Temeraire book and it was totally awesome. Loved the series and highly recommend it.
Slow Horses get off to a bit of a slow and rough start, but if you stick with it you are in for a really good spy story.
Good Girl, Bad Blood was a great sequel and just as a compelling read as the first one.
Bitter Falls was really good and it was nice to see Connor have a more central role to the story.
Cupcakes, Trinkets, and other Deadly Magic was an audiobook that I picked up on a whim, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will pick up the rest once I’m done with the Great Coat series.
Heartbreak Bay was perhaps the best of the series. I loved the story and the fact that part of it was told from Kezia’s point of view.
Remember Me was a very different type of ghost story and I really enjoyed it.
Traitor’s Blade is the first in the Great Coat series and I really enjoyed it. Highly recommend the audiobook too, the narrator is great.
Firekeeper’s Daughter is a great mystery set in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Solid debut from a Native writer that I think will become a favorite of many.
When You Trap a Tiger was the winner of the Newbery Award this year. It was really good and I can totally see why it won.
Golden Age and Other Stories was a nice addition to the Temeraire novels. I enjoyed the short stories and the artwork included.
The Accidental Apprentice was such a great story, I really enjoyed it and think kids will too.
Sorcery of Thorns was just as good the second time around. Still want a sequel or at least another story set in this world.
I hope your month was just as good as mine. I saw my first daffodil yesterday, so things are looking a bit more like spring around here.
What was your favorite read this month?
