My life is still too much and I am still not reading anything complicated or challenging. But the coming month will be Women’s Prize month and hopefully this will change my reading habits back to something normal.
Books I read in February:
- Kiss of Snow (Psy-Changeling #10) by Nalini Singh: 4 out of 5 stars
- Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11) by Nalini Singh: 4 out of 5 stars
- Almost Love by Louise O’Neill: 4 out of 5 stars (review)
- Archangel’s Storm (Guild Hunter #6) by Nalini Singh: 2,5 out of 5 stars
- Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff: 4,5 out of 5 stars (review)
- Mother Winter by Sophia Shalmiyev: 2 out of 5 stars (review)
- Written in Red (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop: 3,5 out of 5 stars
- Murder of Crows (The Others #2) by Anne Bishop: 2 out of 5 stars
- Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1) by L.J. Shen: 2 out of 5 stars
Favourite of the Month:
My favourite book of the month was Stacy Schiff’s incredible biography of Cleopatra. I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed every minute of it, while learning a whole lot of things I did not know and improving my knowledge of things I did know.
I read 9 books with 3377 pages. Of these books five were SFF of some kind, one was a memoir, one biography, one fiction book and for a chance one romance novel.
Books I should get to soon:
The Women’s Prize longlist. Except for that, I’ll just see where my mood takes me.
(Some of the) blog posts I loved:
Steph encapsulates a lot of the feelings I had about Katherine Arden’s The Girl in the Tower.
Ashleigh shares her thoughts on the Wellcome Prize longlist – a prize I am only peripherally following but which always sounds intriguing.
Naty has read a lot more romance this last year and shares her experiences with her foray into a new genre.
Sam talks about her reading slump and what might have caused it and I absolutely loved this post.
Patrick reviewed my favourite book of last year The Pisces by Melissa Broder and I am always happy when people like the book.
Rachel and I are reading the Women’s Prize for Fiction longlist together and have spent weeks talking about our predictions without ever sharing what we included: I don’t think I have ever looked forward to a post as much as this time.
Lou also posted a prediction post for the Women’s Prize longlist and I am so happy about every single one of these lists I see.
