Monthly Wrap-Up – February 2018

Hello everyone and welcome to my first monthly wrap-up!

During the month of February I read 8 books. The first two books are the best books I read this month from two very different genres then the rest are in the order I read them. A lot of these reviews are scheduled to release later in the month, so the links I provided are to my reviews posted on Goodreads. Best books of the month

 

I’m slowly making my way through Tarryn Fisher’s work because I don’t want to run out. She’s a fantastic writer with keen insight into unlikable characters. Fisher’s novels are always more than they appear and The Opportunist is NO exception. I went into The Opportunist expecting certain feelings towards the main character and story, instead I walked away ruined. Check out my full review here!

I decided to pick up The Child Finder because of Lashaan’s review. I’m always skeptical about thrillers and mysteries now because there are so many mediocre stories in the genre. The Child Finder stands tall among some of the best of the genre. This novel is masterfully written and cuts deep. Check out my full review here!

everything else

 


Find You in The Dark
has an interesting premise that fails to deliver. If you’re an avid reader of thriller/mystery novels, you will most likely find this novel underwhelming.
3 Stars

Firefight is a fantastic sequel to Steelheart that expands the world, mythologies within, and the characters. Firefight is action packed from start to finish and will keep your eyes glued to the pages.
5 Stars

An Ocean of Minutes is a wonderfully crafted story about love, independence, and reality. Lim captures the essence of young idealized love and weaves it into a story about heartbreak, loss, and the lengths people are willing to go for the ones they love.
5 Stars

The Other Brother is a fantastic romance novel that brings something new to the romance genre. If you’re looking for an angsty romance that’s different from others of the genre, look no further!
4 Stars

I’ve got mixed emotions about Calamity. It really pains me to rate a Sanderson book so low. I’m in love with everything this man has written, but Calamity falls short.
3 Stars

I would absolutely recommend Obscura for fans of science fiction and mystery. It’s a quick read that will keep you glued to the pages and will also make you think. I will definitely be reading more of Hart’s work in the future.
4 Stars

 

Have you read any of these? What did you think?
