February Books RECAP

February Books Recap - cover images of books I've read this month are in two rows across a light blue background. Top row (L to R): Counterpart by Ella Pyne, Tattoo of Crimson by Sarah Chislon, The Twisted Ones by T. Kingfisher. Bottom row: The Queen's Secret by Melissa de la Cruz, The Family Bones by Elle Marr, The Cursed Crown by May Sage & Alexi Blake, The Quiet Stillness of Empty Houses by L. V. Russell.

My February Books Recap will undoubtedly show that I was a bit too ambitious in my February Book Goals… But seven books is still a win, right? I wish I could also say I’ve learned my lesson for future months, but the truth is I haven’t!

And just quietly, I’m halfway through SJM’s House of Earth and Blood so I *did* keep my promise to my friend! I know, I know. I’m slow. But as I wasn’t warned about massive sadness in the opening chapters, I think I can be forgiven for taking my time. Friends tell friends about these things, okay? I know I certainly learned that lesson, when I didn’t tell my bestie about a death in Downton Abbey years ago! Live and learn…

And the February Favourite Read Goes To…

This was a tough choice, but in the end I have to say my favourite read was L. V. Russell’s The Quiet Stillness of Empty Houses! I’m a huge fan of the gothic genre, and this gothic romance ticked a lot of boxes for me. If you love a tale containing dramatic suspense and a haunting narrative? The tried and true trope of governess and lord of the house? This unforgettable book is for you!

And that’s a wrap, glitterbugs!

Happy reading, dear bookworms. And stay tuned for more reviews in March…
