February 2018 Wrap-Up

In addition to this being the shortest month of the year, I unfortunately got into a bit of slump in February. Because of this, I didn’t read much during February, which sucks. But hey, here’s to a better reading month in March!

Books read: 2
Pages read: 662
Favorite read of the month: The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor ♡

This is a thriller book that has been highly anticipated and praised and is, in my opinion, totally worth the hype.

It’s deliciously twisted and fucked up, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The only thing I would change is the fact that I read a Portuguese translation, instead of the original text, and it was a rather poor translation. But since that has nothing to do with the book itself, I do not have one bad thing to say about The Chalk Man. It’s crazy to think that this is C. J. Tudor’s debut, as it is absolutely brilliant ♡

★★★★★ 5/5 stars


The Dinner by Herman Koche1a11bc317c2459690bab95630fff168-the-dinner-koch

The Dinner is a thriller/suspense kind of book that deals with family secrets.

I had heard great things about it, as it is one of Abby’s favorite books, so I had high expectations. Unfortunately, it was a disappointment.

Usually, thrillers take me a few days or less to finish… this one, I started in November and finished in February, which already shows you how uninterested I was in picking this book back up. However, I did feel like picking it up one day during this month, and finished the last half of it in a day. I enjoyed the book and the story, but I did not love it, unfortunately.

★★★☆☆ 3/5 stars

I didn’t read much, as you can tell, and I am reaaaally hoping that March will be better, because I’m already 7 books behind schedule. Here’s hoping! 🤞🏼
