Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my February wrap up and I managed to read nine books! I’m really pleased with that and I’m currently four books ahead of schedule for my reading challenge. Hopefully I can keep this up! Here’s what I read in February:
Manifestations of Sherlock Holmes by James Lovegrove: This is a collection of short stories and sadly it wasn’t for me. I loved it at first but when I hit the halfway point, maybe even less than that, the stories took on a weird turn and I lost interest. I skipped a lot of them and then skimmed the rest just so I could finish it.
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo: I have been eagerly awaiting this graphic novel and it was even better than I thought it would be! I loved the art so much and the characters were exactly how I pictured them. The colours were gorgeous and I became so engrossed in the story. I really hope they adapt Catwoman and Superman as well!
All the Best Lies by Joanna Schaffhausen: This is part of a series but can easily be read as a standalone because everything that happened in the first two books is explained in detail. I read the first one but not the second and I didn’t feel confused at any point about what was going on. I actually enjoyed this book a lot more than I did the first one! The two main characters are trying to solve a cold case that’s over forty years old and has been covered up by corrupted people and those in a position of power. It was a lot dark than I first thought it would be!
The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn: I really enjoyed this and I honestly didn’t think I would! Even though Anna (the main character) was confined to her house most of the time due to suffering from agoraphobia (an anxiety disorder that makes someone scared to leave their house), it was actually a really intense read and the short chapters, coupled with the main characters mental health, made it such an addicting read. Anna witnesses something horrifying and when she tries to get help, she finds the police don’t believe her and she even starts to doubt herself. It was super twisty and I’m very excited for the film!
Death Vote Vol. 1-4 by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata: I watched the TV show for this when I was in college and I have no idea why I’ve only just got round to reading the manga! I’m really enjoying it so far and can’t wait to continue with it. In case you haven’t heard of Death Note, it’s a Japanese manga series about a teen genius (Light) who finds the “Death Note” which grants him the ability to kill anyone whose name is written in its pages. He uses it to create a utopian society without crime and because so many people are dying, it ends up being flagged and investigated by the police. This is honestly one of the most intriguing series and I’d wholly recommend it.
Fawkes and Baxter trilogy by Daniel Cole: I finally finished this trilogy, yay! It was so much better reading it all in one go rather than staggering them because it was much easier to remember what had happened! I changed my rating for Ragdoll, but Hangman and Endgame got five stars. I think Endgame was my favourite because we saw the characters in a new light and delved into past relationships. This is one of my favourite series for sure!
So that’s my wrap up! What books did you guys read this month? Feel free to leave a comment below. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
