Nothing. I read absolutely nothing.
I mean, what a month!
It’s the shortest month and I managed to not pick up a book. (Unless it was for university, in which case I read about 50-100 pages).
At the start of this month, I wrote a blog post with my TBR for the month. It featured 3 books and I managed to not pick up any of them… oops!
If you look at my blog post here, you can see that I read 6 books in January. By the very end of January I’d read 9, so I’ll add the other’s here.
- The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy
I fell in love with Charlie’s illustrations on Instagram and was a bit late to the party when I bought this last month. It’s a soother for when the world get’s a little bit too much.
- How to Stop Time by Matt Haig
This was my audio book read for the month and I really enjoyed it. The book jumps from time to time and Matt’s inclusion of historic figures makes for a really interesting and insightful read.
- Carter Beats the Devil by Glen David Gold
This was arguably finished the first few days of February waiting for a friend to arrive at the train station. This said friend was the one that lent the book to me nearly a year beforehand and I’d picked it up and never finished it. So I challenged myself to finish it over a weekend. And I did, just about. I really enjoyed this book, all the twists and turns. Magic, mystery and history all intertwined.
I did start The Foundling by Stacey Halls earlier this month, but I seem to have hit a bit of a slump. So if you have any recommendations of what I could read to try and get me outta this slump – much obliged!
Full reviews will follow shortly for those that I finished in January– so watch out for those!
Do let me know in the comments below if you’d set yourself a TBR pile for February and how you got on? Did you read any good books this month, any you’d recommend? Or were you like me and hoping that March will be better? Let me know in the comments below.
