Here we are, March already. When the third lockdown in Wales was announced just before Christmas, it seemed like spring was so far away… yet here we are. I’m feeling very ready for the warmer weather, particularly after the beautiful weekend we have just had. February was, overall, definitely a month for reading. I found myself devouring books at a rate of knots, although this may mean I have a slower March.
Read in February
Somewhere Beyond the Sea, Miranda Dickinson
This book arrived with one of my monthly subscription boxes. I will write a full review at some point but it was an enjoyable book. A bit of chick lit romance type thing, I’d say I actually enjoyed it! The main character shares her name with one of my children. And it’s set in Cornwall, what’s not to love.
The Highland Ballad Series, Kristin Gleeson
There are four books in the Highland Ballad Series, the first three of which I read in 2018. I have already reviewed the first of the four, The Hostage of Glenorchy. The other two, The Mists of Glen Strae and The Braes of Huntly, will be reviewed individually shortly. These three follow the story of Abby Gordon, through a perilous journey in troubled times and follows the romance between her and Iain MacGregor.
The fourth book, Highland Lioness, is a recent release and rather that focusing on Abby, it follows Iain’s sister Morag and her adventures at the Scottish Court. The plot was rather ‘samey’ but I enjoyed it immensely none the less.
To Be Read
The next six books (in no particular order) that I would like to read are:
- The New Age of Empire by Kehinde Andrews
- The Twitch by Kevin Parr
- Status Anxiety by Alain de Botton
- Untamed by Glennon Doyle
- The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash
- 44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith
