Well well well….. look who had a good reading month!!! I looked back at my goodreads and couldn’t believe it when I started counting all the books and collecting them to take a pic. A lot of the books I read this month were adult contemporary or ‘Chick Lit’ which I always love and FLY through so I think that accounts for how I was able to read so many.
My favourite of the month was definitely My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella, it was just everything I wanted and I highly recommend you pick it up! My least favourite of the month was Sex, Lies and Online Dating by Rachel Gibson, it had such promise but just didn’t do it for me.
I will place the books below with my ratings a few thoughts 🙂
My Not so Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella
LOVED it!!!! Have I mentioned how much I loved it? You can read my review here (Read me). I started this book technically in January but finished it at the start of February. This book was amazing please read it.
The Diabolic by SJ Kincaid
Look overall I enjoyed this book but it just didn’t really do it for me. I was really excited to read it because it sounded awesome butttttt it just didn’t live up to my expectations. I wont go too much into it as I don’t want to spoil anyone but I didn’t feel the relationship in it and some of the plot points I found just a bit predictable. In saying that I did enjoy it enough to pick up the sequel when it comes out.
Bet Me by Jennifer Cruise
This was my first book by Cruise and I was excited!!!!! It started off a bit slow and I wasn’t expecting to read from so many different POV’s but once I was in the story I was HOOKED! I loved all of the characters, even loved to hate some of them and we VERY invested in the main relationship! Over all I really loved it and will definitely be picking up more of Cruises books in the future.
Sex, Lies and Online Dating by Rachel Gibson
On goodreads I did give this a 2, look it was nearly a 3 but I just couldn’t do that. I’m not even really sure why I didn’t enjoy this? It had all the workings of something I would love no matter how many times I have read these tropes before, but it was a miss! I didn’t connect with the characters, things felt too rushed even for a romcom. I think Gibson is someone who I will pick up in the future to try but I just wouldn’t recommend this book if a friend was looking for an adult contemporary.
Ida by Alison Evans
I think Ida was such a good debut for Evans and over all I really enjoyed it. I loved the characters and would definitely recommend it to friends, and Evans is Australian! I love supporting local authors. I think the best thing about this book is how diverse all the characters are and the fact that it is not a plot point. The characters just are who they are, just like in real life. I am excited to read anything Evans writes in the future.
Cold Magic by Kate Elliot
I love this book! The only reason it doesn’t get a 5 is I just wish there was a little more dialogue between the characters and a bit less description. When we do get characters conversing its SO GOOD, they are witty and clever and it’s just amazing – I need more! I would very much recommend this book to all fantasy lovers, it’s a bit more full on than a YA fantasy but maybe not as dense as some other fantasy books out there. I am hoping to read the next two in this series in March.
Confessions of a Shopaholic/ Shopaholic Abroad by Sophie Kinsella
ALL THE AVOCADOS – but seriously 100/5
Its no secret I love anything Sophie Kinsella writes and this series is no exception. I am planning to do a proper review of the whole series once I have finished my re read, but in short I love Becky and I love Luke and sometimes reading from Becky’s POV is like seeing inside my own mind hahaha. HIGHLY recommend to everyone and especially lovers of chick Lit like myself.
So THATS IT – Pretty good reading month for me 😀 Here’s hoping March is just as good, Let me know how your February was!
Until next time booklovers…
