February Wrap-Up

Better late than never!

In February I read a total of nine books. Five of those were physical books, which is pretty good going!

1. Mistress of the Vampire (Elena Darkmoon) ★★★☆☆☆☆

A young woman falls in love with the vampire she works for. Not bad, but not my cup of tea.

2. Persuasion (Jane Austen)★★★★★★☆

What will happen when Anne Elliot meets the love of her life again? Wonderfully written characters and a romance that warms the heart.

3. Nevernight (Jay Kristoff) ★★★★★★☆

A young girl seeks vengeance for her murdered family and joins a school for assassins. YA meets adult fantasy, a wonderfully witty read.

4. The Brontë Sisters (Catherine Rayner) ★★★★☆☆☆

A biography of the three Brontë sisters. Informative, but repetative. 

5. Delivering Virtue (Brian Kindall) ★★★★★☆☆

Rain is recruited to escort a baby girl to marry a prophet. Quick witty read with a wonderfully flawed protagonist.

6. Flow (Clare Littlemore) ★★★★★★☆

In a world suffering from severe flooding Clare lives in a society called The Beck, which is not what it seems. Excellent plot and characters.

7. The Last Unicorn (Peter S Beagle) ★★★★★☆☆

A unicorn goes in search of others of her own kind, joined by unlikely companions. A whimsical folktale that made me smile. 

8. Dreamer’s Pool (Juliet Marillier) ★★★★★☆☆

A healer makes a promise to a fae to delay vengeance and ends up as Dreamer’s Wood’s wise woman. The book version of comfort food. 

9. The Ruby in the Smoke (Philip Pullman) ★★★☆☆☆☆

Her father’s death throws Sally into all sorts of trouble involving a jewel. I was a bit disappointed by this book. 

March TBR
I have three buddy reads on Goodreads in March, which are Red Rising (Pierce Brown), The Valley of Horses (Jean M Auel) and The Fires of Heaven (Robert Jordan). The latter two would be re-reads, which is always fun. Apart from that I have a few e-Arcs and author requests I would like to get to, but I would just like to pick up what I feel like. We’ll see 🙂

Do you have anything in particular you would like to get to this March?
