Hello my fellow bookworms, I hope you are all well? My oh my, we have had a very cold February here in the UK. As much as I love a cosy night in as the weather rages outside, I am now rather tired of it and could really do with a little warmth and sunshine! This month, from within my blankets, I have read:
Fiction: 2 Non-Fiction: 3
At the beginning of the month, I finished historical crime fiction A Monstrous Regiment of Women by Laurie R. King, the second nostalgic and thrilling Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes mystery for me. After that I threw myself into the epic, fantasy adventure The Dragon’s Blade: The Reborn King by Michael R. Miller, which turns out is the first book in a planned trilogy. My full thoughts on this are still to be posted, so keep your eyes peeled for that in March.
Alongside these fictions, I also read three more non-fictions. First, I finished reading the brand new cookbook The Hairy Dieters (5) Go Veggie by Si King & Dave Myers, which is a great collection of vegetarian recipes. Next, for my church’s book club, I read the candid The Case for Grace by Lee Strobel, a compelling collection of inspiring stories of transformation. Finally, right at the end of the month, I squeezed in another interesting history, Seven Kings of England, by one of my favourite new authors of last year: Geoffrey Trease. Again my full thoughts on this are still to be posted, so also look out for that in March.
Pick of the Month: The Hairy Dieters (5) Go Veggie
Altogether that is five books finished – two fictions and three non-fictions which is identical to last month! Carrying on into March, I have historical fiction Six Tudor Queens: Katherine of Aragon, The True Queen by Alison Weir, the American classic This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ronald Reagan: A Very Brief History by Mark Black.
In March, I look forward to celebrating my dad’s birthday and Mother’s Day, as well as more quality reading time and a bit warmer weather please!
What did you do and read in February? What are your plans for March?
