Reading Round Up – February 2018

After the energy and drive that the New Year gives to January, I find February to be a short and demanding month that tests my commitment.

So reading was a bit tougher this month, and my reading selections were for the most part challenging (but worth it) – bringing me to 9 books for the year:

Read 7 –   The Mermaid and Mrs Hancockby Imogen Hermes Gowar

Part historical fiction, part magical realism – this was a book that really demanded my attention, and so took me almost half of the month to get through. But with mermaids, courtesans, and 18th Century social ambition – hello… how could I resist?!

Read 8 – Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fearby Elizabeth Gilbert

There are a few non-fiction that I am compelled to re-read on a regular basis – books that always seem to have a lesson in them that I need at that particular point of my life. The Alchemist has always been like this for me, and more recently I’ve found the same {magic} in Big Magic.

Read 9 – The Powerby Naomi Alderman

This one is going to stick in my head for a very long time.  Still processing my thoughts!
