Books Read in February

As I mentioned last month, this year I'm going to post a list of the books I've read at the end of each month. 

It's a fun way of breaking up the yearly reads. It's also a cool way of listing the different types of stories & books I read.

Here's my February list: 
  1. The Pool House by Tasmina Perry
  2. The Death House by Sarah Pinborough
  3. Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely
  4. Big Driver by Stephen King (DNF @ 18pgs)
  5. The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie
  6. Satellite by Nick Lake (DNF @ 80pgs)
  7. Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz (DNF @ 100pgs)
  8. The Wonder Down Under by Nina Brochmann & Ellen Støkken Dahl
  9. Forgotten Women: The Leaders by Zing Tsjeng

Novels read: 9
Non-fiction: 2
Novellas read: 1
Short stories read: 0
Poem collections read: 0
DNF: 3
Finished series: 0

Yikes, I had a bit of bad luck this month with the DNFs. I was really surprised about how boring Satellite turned out to be. So dull I lost interest and had to put it down. Not enjoying Big Driver was an even bigger surprise because I usually love King's work. This story just handled a trope I despise. Ugh. 

As for Odd Thomas, as much as I wanted to like it, I'm not surprised I gave up after 100 pages. For some reason, I haven't been able to read a single Koontz story all the way through. o.O

Although I'm determined to read more novellas, short stories (+anthologies) this  month I only read novels. But I did add a bit of non-fiction to the list. ☺ 

Happy reading!
