Favourite Read of the Month: February 2018

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:

  1. Knock Out by Catherine Coulter, a fast-paced FBI thriller.
  2. A World Below by Wesley King, a YA adventure story.
  3. Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday, a literary novel.
  4. The Last Mile by David Baldacci, a fast-paced thriller.
  5. The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson, an apocalyptic story set in the future.
  6. 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.

  1. Good for you for reading. I started to reread Matthew Hughes and his Archonate world books this month. I love that he is genuinely intelligent and good-natured, although some of the books do have crimes etc. I don’t have one specific title to say was my favourite–I’m just going through them all, some whenever they arrive in the post and some dug up from boxes of mine.


      1. I agree. There may be some little disappointments or some excellences that stand out, but generally they are closer in degree than books by diverse authors–


  2. I love reading thrillers in the winter. Something about the early darkness, chilly temps, and snuggling under a cozy blanket that really sets the mood for me.
