Reading Wrap Up: February 2018

Hi, readers!

Today I’m sharing my reads from this past month. Overall, it was a pretty great reading month filled with some classics and a few new releases, too! I’ll first share this month’s reading stats and then move on to highlight the books themselves.

This month I read…

Books: 6 plus 5 books that I marked as DNF (did not finish)

Books by women: 6 / 6

Books by PoC: 2 / 6

Favorite pick of the month: This Will Be My Undoing by Morgan Jerkins

Now, onto the books!

The Broken Girls by Simone St. James

I practically devoured this ARC. It is a fantastic thriller with a ghost story, too! This book comes out on March 20 and you can read my review here. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.

The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo

I was fairly disappointed in this book. It was Reese Witherspoon’s February book club pick and I just didn’t see what all the fuss was about. I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars and you can read my full review post here.

Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear

This was one of those books that I’ve been meaning to pick up for a long time and I’m so glad I finally did! I thought this was a wonderful story and Maisie is a delightful sleuth. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars and you can expect a full review coming soon!

This Will Be My Undoing by Morgan Jerkins

This will come as no surprise if you saw my review yesterday, which you can read here, but I think this memoir is phenomenal. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars and cannot recommend this enough.

The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

This book is such a gem! It’s a contemporary romance that I would particularly recommend if you’re looking for some lighter reading. You can read my review here and I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Women & Power by Mary Beard

This is quite the intriguing little read! It’s remarkably short and provides some interesting food for thought, especially if you’re a fan of Ancient Rome or the classics. This book is too short to review but I did share some thoughts in this Currently Reading post. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.

That’s it for this month! What books did you finish this month?
