Another solid month of reading for the month of February! I made it a personal goal to read more poetry this year, and I read two books by poets I now love!
Here’s what I read in February.
The Winners (Beartown #3) by Fredrik Backman
Well. Sighhhhhh. Unfortunately the final book in the Beartown series let me down. It was very, very, very, very, very, very, very long. So much was happening. Too many storyllines. Every chapter was *something* and I felt like there was no closure whatsoever even though the book was nearly 700 pages. Sigh.
Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun (Finlay Donovan #3) by Elle Cosimano
These books are so, so silly and I can’t get enough. BUT … I kind of wanted the series to end here? What else can be done here?
Why I Wake Early: New Poems by Mary Oliver
Mary Oliver’s poems are like breathing naturally. I feel immediately calm when I read her poetry. Can’t get enough.
Brown Girls by Daphne Palasi Andreades
An amazing debut with lyrical prose that read more like poetry. Very insightful and powerful and emotional.
The Kingdom of Copper (Daevabad Trilogy #3) by S.A. Chakraborty
This one certainly took a while to read, but I loved the pacing. These books are so fascinating and while I didn’t care for any of the characters at first, I really enjoy Nahri and Ali. Once the book ended, I had to get the third book, which is more than 750 pages long.
Good Bones: Poems by Maggie Smith
I thought her poems were just okay. I am glad I read them, but I don’t like hawks as much as she does … and all of her poems were about hawks … so…
