February 2016 Wrap Up

Let's review February!

Here's what I planned to read:

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty - Check! This on was for book club. It was way better than I expected from that stupid cover.

A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler - Check! This was the library book club book. I found out the day before the meeting for this book that it would be my last meeting with this group. I took a promotion at another library, and I start March 16, so no more library book club.

Jane Austen's Names by Margaret Doody - Nope. I got a little further in this one, but I was distracted by so many other great books!

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan - Check! I really enjoyed this. It was smarter and funnier that you would guess from the jacket copy.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler - Check! I finally got this one done! I enjoyed it, but as an audiobook, it was at the mercy of my car schedule.

So I finished 4 of the 5 books on my TBR. But don't fret. There were more books I read.

Lumberjanes Vol. 2 by Noelle Stephenson - This is the second volume of a graphic novel series about a group of girls at the weirdest summer camp ever. Greek Gods were involved.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith - I read this so I could go see the movie in theaters! That was a fun night. The movie is completely different from the book, but still amazing.

El Deafo by Cece Bell - This is the first of the Sequoyah Book Award nominations that I picked up after they were announced. It's a memoir about a girl with hearing impairment and how people react to her hearing aids.

The Port Chicago 50 by Steve Sheinkin - Here is another Sequoyah nominee about a group of black navy men who were court martialed for refusing to go back to work after unsafe conditions caused an explosion that killed over 300 men.

The Rabbit Back Literary Sociey by Pasi Ilmari Jaaskelainen - I found this on some recommendation list somewhere and managed to find our copy. Man, was that a lucky find! This was fantastic!

So that's 9 books. Dang! That's pretty darn good!

How'd you do in February?
