While February was a decent month, reading-wise, it wasn’t quite as productive as I wanted it to be. This was probably due to the fact that toward the end of the month I got suddenly obsessed with getting back into craft stuff, and spent days at a time making embroidered bookmarks and sewing the material for microwavable heating bags. Still, I did get a fair bit of reading and reviewing done, and I can’t say that the month was a total loss or anything. Just not as good as I wanted it to be.
So what did I get finished this past month? Let’s take a look at the reviews.
– The Watch House, by Robert Westall
– The Cloud Roads, by Martha Wells
– Pure, by Julianna Baggott
– The White Gryphon, by Mercedes Lackey
– Erebos, by Ursula Poznanski
– Hark! A Vagrant, by Kate Beaton (not a novel so much as a collection of webcomics)
– The Broken Kingdoms, by N. K. Jemisin
6 novels and 1 collection of webcomics, so 7 books reviewed in total.
I also did a series review of L. J. Smith’s Night World books, looking at the series as a whole instead of at each of the individual books. There was also a review of the movies, The Woman in Black. I really enjoyed doing a movie review, and I’ll probably end up doing more in the future, when they have enough in common with my reading material that I can be sure they have a place here. (I’m looking into doing movie reviews by video for other movies – I’ll probably make some announcement if I ever decide to get off my butt and actually set that up.)
What’s on the horizon for March? Well, the reviews I can guarantee are as follows (all links lead to Amazon.com): Dan Wells’s Partials, The Steel Seraglio by mostly a bunch of people called Carey, Aimee Carter’s Goddess Interrupted, Jill Hathaway’s Slide, Mercedes Lackey’s The Silver Gryphon, and The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year (volume 6). 6 books, all of them looking awesome, and all of them books I’m looking forward to. Well, with the exception of the Lackey novel. I’ve read that one before, but it’s part of the Great Valdemar Reread; can’t say I’m looking forward to it in the same way as the others, since I already know the story.
Hope everyone had a good February, and I hope March will be even better! Happy reading!
