In February, I read six books (finished Winter by Marissa Meyer in early February but included it in my January Wrap Up) and started the seventh book which I’m currently reading!
- Relativity by Antonia Hayes
- Fairest by Marissa Meyer
- Sick Pleasure by Jessica Serra Huizenga
- Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
- Spider Island by Dan Slott
I really enjoyed reading Fairest and Stars Above by Marissa Meyer as I felt connected to their past lives and learnt how they became who they are in their present lives. It was very interesting and made me sympathise with some characters (Queen Levana), which I wouldn’t have done normally if I hadn’t known their backstory.
Relativity was a book I received from Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for an honest review and I have to say that it’s one of the best stories I’ve come across that I’ve won from Goodreads so far, such an interesting novel by an incredibly written author. (You can find my Relativity book review here)
Sick Pleasure by Jessica Serra Huizenga was such a breath of fresh air, I love her writing so much and she has this incredible ability to draw the reader in. The Crazy, Beautiful series is definitely one of my favourite of all time series and if you haven’t picked one of her books yet, I recommend you to do it immediately!
I’ve realised that I’m not the greatest lover of comic books. When I read Spider Island I found it quite confusing because there was a lot happening throughout the comic and I feel like I didn’t connect very well to it. However, I really enjoyed the illustrations – that’s got to count for something ..right?
The book that I’m currently reading at the moment is a book I’ve received from Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review called Taken at Night by Christa A Ludlow. The blurb on the back of the book says:
A historical mystery about medicine, photography and murder…
The year is 1900, and photographer Beatrix Spencer has just opened her studio in the bustling colonial metropolis of Sydney. But it is a turbulent time to start a new business, with a deadly outbreak of plague threatening the city, soldiers about to embark for the Boer War, and women struggling for rights and recognition.
When a doctor disappears from a quarantined ship, Beatrix is drawn into the police investigation led by Detective Fergus Blair, who has secrets of his own. Despite their very different backgrounds, together they discover that their city is more dangerous than either of them realized. And somewhere, another more sinister photographer is at work…’
I’m currently on page 44 so I’m just starting to get into the novel now, I look forward to unravelling the rest of the story ahead!
