Despite the extra day of reading time this month, I did not manage to read any extra books. Although technically February is a cruel month that takes away maximum reading time with it’s shortened calendar. ANYWAY. Onto the books and what I did actually read…
My February 2020 Book Reviews:
/ The Mercies by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
/ The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel
/ Beast by Matt Wesolowski
/ Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher
/ Endless Night by Agatha Christie
A surprise hit this month for me was Beast; written as a podcast transcription, it’s a delicious, addictive horror / thriller that’s different to my usual reads, but I’m so pleased I left my comfort zone to discover this gem. I liked it so much that I’m reading the previous 3 books in the series. Now that’s high praise.
The Mercies was also a riveting read, set around witch trials and female friendship, I just loved everything about it. However, I had mixed feelings about my other two Feb fiction reads… The Glass Hotel did nothing wrong except not quite living up to the previous book by the same author (read more about that in my review) and Endless Night was unfortunately an Agatha Christie story that just didn’t quite hit the spot for me. Such is the nature of reading!
Wishful Drinking though, my non-fiction read, was a wonderful memoir by the late, great Carrie Fisher. Full of riveting stories that felt like a little slice of history.
March sees a few exciting blog tours coming your way and a few exciting book reviews too!
Until next month, Happy Reading!
The Mercies is on my tbr and I’m really looking forward to reading it…I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
