Reading Round-Up: February

Hello Loves!

Did anyone else blink and miss February? I feel like I did. I know there’s only 28 days but still, I feel like it’s gone super quick. However, it’s been a great reading month. I’ve had half term as well where I spent time pottering around and I noticed that it was getting brighter earlier and for longer. The spring flowers are arriving too. Exciting times ahead!

In February I managed to read 13 books which I’m really chuffed about. I’ve read some absolute crackers too. I’ve just noticed that they’re all similar colours: oranges, reds and yellows. Clearly I’ve been (unconsciously/subconsciously?) looking for some bright colours to perk the season up! Anyway, enough jabber! Let’s check out the shelves!

  1. Love & Saffron – Kim Fay. Food and friendship, what’s more to love? This story is heartwarming and I really enjoyed it. I also loved that it was all letters! Joan and Imogen remind us that friendship and food are the most important things. A gorgeous little read.
  2. The Measure – Nikki Erlick. This book really intrigued me. In a nutshell, small wooden boxes are left outside doors all around the world containing one thing: a string showing how many years you’ll live. Do you open it? What if yours is a short string? Totally captivating and a genius idea of a plot!
  3. The Love of my Life – Rosie Walsh. I love Rosie Walsh’s writing, she never disappoints. It was a safe bet buying and reading this book and I really didn’t see the plot unravelling like it did. There’s lots of twists and turns but ultimately, are you really who you say you are?

What a brilliant reading month and of course, more pennies into my savings account too! I can’t wait to see what March brings. I need to self care because it’s mock exam season so reading hopefully will be the best medicine for this! Have a great reading month everyone! I’ll see you next time for my book choice for my reading challenge for February!

Big love all xxxx

  1. Hi Books and Bakes – what a roundup! I read The Measure a couple weeks ago – I almost didn’t recognize it on your shelf – my cover was so different! I thought it was a great premise, but in the end I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would. I did like Nine Perfect Strangers – it had a lot more meat to it than I expected. Thanks for sharing all your reads! I’m interested in the Coco Chanel book – is that a biography? Hope you’re having a nice weekend 🙂

    1. I felt exactly the same about The Measure. I really wanted to like it but by the end I was a bit put off actually. Talk about full circle!
      The Chanel book is but it’s really short and has key quotes and snippets rather than the full story. It’s so beautiful inside though! Sorry for the delayed response – I’ve had flu again! X

  2. I read the description of The Love of My Life, and I have to read this now! Ghosted sounds so interesting too. Personally, I love winter, and I’m sad to see it go, but with summer comes vacation; you can’t go wrong with that! 🖤
