BOOKS - February

It's book post time.

Want more? Of course you do. Here's the January book post, the November / December one, the October edition, September's (plus the picture book one), the June / July / August one (and the picture book one) and here's one with links to all the rest.  You can always browse through everything filed under the "books" tag here.

Let's start off with the awesome collection of books I discovered over the course of last month / books that were released over the course of last month...
Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët.
29 Myths on the Swinster Pharmacy by Lemony Snicket and Lisa Brown.
Hector and the Big Bad Knight by Alex T. Smith / The Great Day by Taro Gomi / Bluebird by Lindsay Yankey
Troll Swap by Leigh Hodgkinson.
The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes.

An ex-boyfriend once barfed in my handbag. Thankfully it was only a cheap tote from H&M so I just threw it away, but still. It also ruined a wallet, umbrella and a caricature drawing of my friend and I that we'd just had done at a spring fling sort of event. After he puked in the bag, he proceeded to puke in my desk drawer. I remember washing it out with Herbal Essences shampoo that I stole from another girl who lived in my suite. Such a pleasant time. Waking up in bed... seeing your boyfriend holding your tote bag beneath his vomiting mouth and using it as a puke receptacle .

And now for what I read & enjoyed in February.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (thus finishing all her available books - now I have to impatiently wait around for Landline to be released) / The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud / The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt / Unwanted by Kristina Ohlsson / Red Dragon by Thomas Harris (in spite of the fact that The Silence of the Lambs is one of my favorite movies ever, I'd never read the books - watching and loving Hannibal (the show) finally made me buy the book series. I love murdery books [and completely ruining my peace of mind and mental health forever more].)

This is one of the first monthly book posts without a children's book in the "books I read" section - I read two but despised them both. Off to Goodwill they went.

  1. "i love murdery books" = the best phrase ever. i'm going to use it because same. haven't watched Hannibal yet but i'll start watching it if you start true detective asap. i loved the book red dragon, and the film (ralph fiennes was so chilling).
