I read nine books in February which is less than I normally read, but it’s been such a busy month for me I’m quite happy with the number of books I’ve read!
My favourite book read in February was The Game of Kings. I’m so glad I’ve finally discovered Dorothy Dunnett!
Mariana by Susanna Kearsley was another great book I read last month – I loved the setting, the characters and the atmosphere. I also enjoyed The Virgin Queen’s Daughter, a very entertaining historical fiction novel by Ella March Chase.
I read Macbeth as part of my plan to read one of Shakespeare’s plays every month of 2012. It’s not the first time I’ve read it, but I think I appreciated it more this time round and will be posting my thoughts on it soon. And I also read Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. It took me nearly the whole month to read it, but it was worth the time and effort!
Two more books I read in February were A Small Circus by Hans Fallada and The Land of Decoration by Grace McCleen, and I found them both disappointing in different ways. I thought A Small Circus was confusing and I didn’t like any of the characters, and although I could definitely see the appeal of The Land of Decoration, it just wasn’t for me.
How was February for you?
