February wrap-up!

A little late, but it's time for another wrap-up! What did I read in the month of February?

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson: A book with a bookish theme, is every booklover's dream! And it's based on real-life events? Women who were basically traveling librarians, bringing books to communities and people who were starving for them. And the main character has a genetic condition that makes her skin blue?! There was no much to like....however all the good things can be outweighed by a lackluster ending!!!! To me the ending was very abrupt, which made me downgrade my opinions of this book. Rating: Give it a try

The Antidote for Everything by Kimmery Martin: In a nutshell this read like a plot from the TV show Grey's Anatomy, which isn't a bad thing. It was just a bit melodramatic. (Review in that handy link in the book title. :) Rating: Give it a try

Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel: Well this one was
definitely a page-turner! A daughter long-abused by her mother decides to turn the tables! I won't say more because my full review will be posted later this month, except add this one to your TBR!  Rating: O.M.G.!!!

What's on tap for March: I'm giving The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang a second chance. I read half of this book in the summer of 2018. The first half of
the book is brilliant, and I still see that reading that part again. I just have trepidation about getting through the second half, which is where I lost interest in the story. But I'm making a promise to get through the whole book and write a post about the experience. Very rarely do I go back to a book that I quit. Only once have I liked a book that I gave a second chance to, The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins, and I hope to have that experience again! Happy reading!
