During the month of February, I managed to read six books for this year’s Book Pledge.
The titles in February were mostly thrillers with a YA adventure, an apocalyptic story, and a literary novel thrown in. Three of my February reads were books that I had received at the OLA Super Conference (two were ARCs, the third a recently published debut novel). To read my reviews (if you haven’t already), click on the title in the following list:
- Knock Out by Catherine Coulter, a fast-paced FBI thriller.
- A World Below by Wesley King, a YA adventure story.
- Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday, a literary novel.
- The Last Mile by David Baldacci, a fast-paced thriller.
- The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson, an apocalyptic story set in the future.
- Four Blind Mice by James Patterson, an Alex Cross murder story.
My reads for February were varied. I always enjoy thrillers (as you can see, three of the six books I read were of this genre). However, I also enjoy titles with different themes and often try to read a novel that would not be my first choice (during February it was the book titled asymmetry). My favourite read for February is a non-thriller title – the debut novel by Tyrell Johnson. I have read apocalyptic novels of this ilk before and this one was a little different from most. I like that the protagonist is a young woman who finds her strength in the story after undergoing some hardships. The book ends with a question in the reader’s mind, and I hope that the author writes a sequel to answer it.
