February was a good month for me on both the reading and blogging fronts, a trend I hope continues into March.
Total Books Read in February: Seven (for a total of sixteen books read so far in 2015). Below is the list of books I read in February. I only reviewed a couple of them -- click on the titles, where applicable, to read my review:
- The Case of the Missing Servant by Tarquin Hall (contemporary mystery)
- Intolerable by Kamil Al-Solaylee (memoir, Canada Reads 2015 finalist)
- The Washington Stratagem by Adam LeBor (thriller)
- Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus (contemporary mystery)
- A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman (contemporary lit, humour)
- Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder (fantasy)
- Pilgrim by Timothy Findley (literary fiction)
With the exception of Pilgrim, which wasn't for me, I enjoyed each of the books listed, and suspect that at least a couple of them will make my best of 2015 list.
My most popular posts from February, not including my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? posts, were as follows -- feel free to join the conversation if you haven't already done so (I've linked the title to the post):
- Bookish Thoughts: Too Many Reading Choices Can (Sometimes) Be A Bad Thing
- Is It Time To Rethink How I Review?
On the flip-side of things, the following posts didn't receive much attention, so go show them some love :-)
Looking ahead, I've got some great books lined up for March (at least tentatively, my reading plans always change). It's also time for Spring Training! I can't tell you how excited I am that baseball season will soon be upon us once again (Go Blue Jays!).
