February… was not the best month ever. Just one annoying, bad thing after another not worth going into here. Despite that, I managed to finish five books last month:
- In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods (audio) … Matt Bell
- All the Light We Cannot See … Anthony Doerr
- Sweetland … Michael Crummey
- Flags of Our Fathers … James Bradley
- Dept. of Speculation … Jenny Offill
Of the five books I read, Sweetland and Flags of Our Fathers were my favorites. I ended up reading Flags (off my TBR list) during the last week of February, which just so happened to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the battle at Iwo Jima. I love when that type of serendipity happens! I counted In the House and Dept. of Speculation for my KC Library challenge, too.
The worst of the month for me was All the Light We Cannot See. I wanted to like this so much, and I muscled through to participate in Katie’s discussion over at Words for Worms but I’m sure if it weren’t for that I would have DNF this one. Blah! I tried. Just not the one for me.
I started a couple of other books, Rivers by Michael Farris Smith (for my Ebook challenge) and Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler on audio, which I think I can also count for the KC Library challenge. I WILL complete a challenge in 2015!
I hope you had a better February! What was the best/worst you read last month?
