February Roundup

It’s taken me a while to catch up on my reviewing, but the final post of the day is the February Roundup!

 

This month has gone by incredibly quickly; it’s quite frightening to think of. It’s not been the best of months on a personal level, so I’m glad it’s over. However, from a reading perspective there have been some wonderful books.

 

I’ve managed to have a mixed month in terms of genre, incorporating poetry, romance (of which I’m not a huge fan of), science fiction, modern fiction and classics. So far, keeping with the resolutions. I’m also 19 down, so another 81 to go to hit my target!

 

The highlight of February is certainly The Shock of The Fall, with Wide Sargasso Sea and Forgive Me Leonard Peacock as close seconds. I’d recommend that everyone pick up a copy of The Shock of The Fall; it’s fantastically written and goes a long way to challenging the stigma of mental illness.  I was disappointed with The Glass Bead Game (I didn’t even have the energy to review it), and Attachments was average, but other than that it was a good reading month.

 

Hopefully the good book streak will continue through March. If anyone has any recommendations/comments/thoughts just let me know! :)
