Welcome to a series of posts that chart my wonderful reading year, 2020. I don’t have the time to review all the books I read and wanted I way to celebrate each one. So I’m going to do a monthly post of all the wonderful books I’ve reading that month. Short snappy reviews, simple comments about why I enjoyed them so much.
So welcome to my celebration of my reading in February 2020 😀
Well the second month of the Year got off to a wonderful start with Wild Girls Spinning by Carol Lovekin. Stunning writing about loss, love and rebirth.
Then I finished Little by Edward Carey, which is stunning. Macabre in places, but also deeply moving. This is without a doubt my favourite read of 2020 so far.
Next I finished as book that has sat on my TBR pile for a long time, The Secret Life of Cows by Rosamund Young. A non fiction book I have wanted to read for a while and though I didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected, it was still a fascinating read.
Following this, it was a children’s book Sparky The Dragon Bus by Sue Wickstead. Charming and educational, it’s a great addition to a wonderful series.
Next came my second non fiction book this month, Over The Top – My Story by Jonathan Van Ness. It was everything I hoped it would be, honest, emotional and a great read. I recommend it to anyone looking for their next autobiography.
Next came two stunning reads from the publisher Orenda Books.
Beast by Matt Wesolowski is a novel of our times, powerful and haunting, this new episode of Six Stories is simply stunning.
It was going to be difficult for my next read to live up to Beast’s impact on me as a reader, but Death Deserved by Thomas Enger and Jorn Lier, was superb and the start of an exciting new series.
My final fiction read this month was The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal. An enjoyable gothic historical thriller and a very impressive debut.
My final read in February was the stunning The Salt Path by Raynor Winn. Deeply moving and inspiring, I will without doubt be reading her new book.
Well it has been another wonderful reading month and I can’t wait to see what Match will bring my way.
