Sunday Salon: February Reading Reflections

Even though February is the shortest month, I actually managed to have a pretty good reading month both in terms of number and quality. I also managed to review a few of my reads too which is another positive - I was on a roll at the beginning of the month, but did slow down a bit at the end.

Here are the books that I read

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley 4.5/5
The Turning of Anne Merrick by Christine Blevins 4/5
The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald 4.5/5
A Good American by Alex George 4.5/5
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern 4.5/5
Black Juice by Margo Lanagan 4/5
The Darling Buds of May by H E Bates 4/5
Sunrise Point by Robyn Carr 4/5
The Bungalow by Sarah Jio 4/5
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater 4/5
The Scottish Prisoner by Diana Gabaldon 4.5/5
Serendipity by Carly Phillips 4/5
Kismet by Carly Phillips 4/5 (novella)
Birds of a Feather by Jacqueline Winspear 4/5
Some Like it Hot by Louisa Edwards 4/5
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline 3.5/5
Bride by Mistake by Anne Gracie 45
A Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson 4/5
Instant Gratification by Jill Shalvis 4/5
Legend by Marie Lu 4/5
Liar Bird by Lisa Walker 4/5

It was also a good reading month in terms of the reading challenges I am participating in too.

Australian Womens Writers Challenge (completed 5/12) and Aussie Author Challenge (completed 5/10) - This month I read Black Juice, Bride by Mistake and Liar Bird for these challenges.

What's in a Name Challenge (completed 3/6) - Sunrise Point and The Bungalow met the Something in the Sky and Type of House categories of this challenge respectively.

Historical Fiction Reading Challenge (completed 13/20) - The books I read for this challenge this month were The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, The Turning of Anne Merrick, The Bungalow, The Scottish Prisoner, Birds of a Feather, A Countess Below Stairs.

War Through the Generations (completed 2/3) - The Great Gatsby and Birds of a Feather.

How was your February reading wise or any other way that you might want to share?


  1. I'm also impressed! And judging by your ratings, you've head some great time reading those books.

  2. Count me impressed, too! I love the Maisie Dobbs series--really need to try and find the next one for me.

  3. Looks like a great reading month for you! I've read Shiver & Legend and really liked them too.

  4. Wow, I'm impressed!

    What did you think of The Scottish Prisoner? I haven't read the second in the Lord John series, but I've heard Scottish Prisoner is the best of the three and that they don't have to be read in order.

  5. What did you think of BIrds of a Feather? I enjoyed it very much. She is such an interesting heroine, and set at an interesting point in history too, right after WW1 and the changes in society then.

    Impressive reading indeed, Marg!

  6. Wow! You had a great reading month! I hope March goes just as well.

  7. You had a fantastic month! I really hope you review Scottish Prisoner - I'd like to hear how it is. :)

  8. You have been busy indeed! I have only read two of the books on your list (The Great Gatsby and Shiver - what a combo!), but my reading month was good also. I am always behind with reviews as well. Sometimes you just have to take it easy.

  9. I did rather well with February, too, which surprised me because of the shorter nature of it. You read some great books!

  10. I loved The Night Circus! The Great Gatsby is on my list of books to read.
