Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

My February 2015 Reading Round-up

What I read in February...

Inflicted – Ria Frances (reviewed here) (from the TBR pile)

Murder on the Links – Agatha Christie (new purchase - naughty!)

Hallowe’en Party – Agatha Christie, Chandre (graphic novel) (from the library)

Disclaimer – Renee Knight (review to come) (from the TBR pile)

Mind the Gap – Intimate Strangers (comic book) (from the library)

Gronk – Katie Cook – (a comic book) (reviewed here) (netgalley)

Whatever You Love – Louise Doughty (from the TBR pile)

The Leipzig Affair –Fiona Rintoul (review to come) (from the TBR pile)

Eustace – Steven Harris (a graphic novel) (from the library)

Saga, Volume 1 – (comic book) (from the library)

Four of these, all novels, were from my to be read pile and I was pleased to read those at last, then several were borrowed from the library and were graphic novels/comic books which I am recently enjoying reading more and more. I'll try and do a post collecting together some of the graphic novels I've read sometime soon. I'm still trying to catch up on writing reviews for some of these reads, and for some of my January reads.

Looking ahead to March I am going to be trying to tackle the TBR pile even more as part of the Take Control of Your TBR Challenge hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 

Book of the month...

My favourite read overall was The Leipzig Affair by Fiona Rintoul, with Inflicted by Ria Frances close behind.

My favourite of the graphic novels/comic books was Mind the Gap, and I liked Saga, and Gronk, a lot too.


What was your favourite read in February 2015?

Thank you for visiting!


  1. There's a graphic novel of an Agatha Christie book? How have I missed this?? Must get to the bookstore now! Looks like a great reading month!

    1. Yes! I found it completly by chance in the library! It was fun although not as good as the real thing. Thanks Katherine.

  2. So many books! It's always so satisfying to move books from your TBR pile to the Read pile :) Happy March, Lindsay.

    1. It certainly is, and I'm being much more careful about adding to my TBR pile just now. Hope you have a good month Ellie!
