February Wrap Up

Definitely not as successful a reading month as January but I did start University again this month. I also began the mammoth task of cataloguing my books...it's been a process. 

The Gods of Love by Nicola Mostyn

I loved the idea of this. I saw Greek Mythology in the blurb and was sold, but when I read it I was so underwhelmed. I can't remember much of the plot nor can I recall the characters.

Dr. Jekyll and My Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

This wasn't what I had thought it would be but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I'd always thought that Jekyll and Hyde would be told from the perspective of the two personalities but I was incredibly mistaken. Instead it's those around Jekyll and Hyde  As it turns out it's one of the books in my reading list this year which is wonderful. I'm looking forward to studying this in more depth later on in the year.

Posh by Laura Wade

I still have no clue how to explain this play. It was so strange and at times incredibly uncomfortable to read. From an analytical point of view it's probably fantastic but...not for me.

Illuminae by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff

Oh my god I adored this book. It was absolutely incredible. I loved the method of story telling and all the illustrations. I fell in love with the characters and I can't wait to get more of them in Obsidio.

Gemina by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff

Gemina took over where Illuminae left off but with different characters. I can't decide which set of characters I loved more. They were both so interesting but for incredibly different reasons. I'm so excited to see where Obsidio goes next!

Sunflowers in February* by Phyllida Shrimpton

A huge thank you to Hot Key for sending this one my way. It hit me right in the feels. This is perfect for fans of the Lovely Bones or Gayle Forman's If I Stay. Trigger warnings for grief and family death but both these topics were handled with such care. I loved how there was some humour mixed in even though the topic was quite a sombre one. It really helped to balance the novel.. I highly recommend this one.

    Sounds like you mostly had a good reading month. Love the format for this post by the way.
    I still have not continued on with the Illiminae files despite liking Illuminae. I know
