February Book Report

February 2021
I finished 15 books last month, many of them mysteries.

A quote from this month's reading:

"A divorce is like an amputation, you survive but there's less of you."
-- Margaret Atwood, Surfacing

Here is my progress toward various goals and challenges:

Here are the books I finished in February 2021: 
  1. The Dirty Duck by Martha Grimes -- this is the one I had skipped past in January 3-stars)
  2. Love, Lies and Liquor by M. C. Beaton (3-stars)
  3. Surfacing by Margaret Atwood (3-stars)
  4. Beach Read by Emily Henry  (audiobook, 3-stars)
  5. The Edge by Dick Francis  -- My first 5-star read this year
  6.  Proof by Dick Francis  (audiobook, 4-stars)
  7. And Be a Villain by Rex Stout  (3-stars)
  8. Curtains for Three by Rex Stout  (3-stars)
  9. The Amazing Mrs. Pollifax by Dorothy Gilman  (audiobook, 4-stars)
  10. Small Move, Big Change by Caroline Arnold  (4-stars)
  11. The Deer Leap by Martha Grimes  (3-stars)
  12. Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel -- this was a book I felt like I should read and I expected it to be a slog, but it wasn't and I enjoyed it (3-stars)
  13. The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett  (4-stars)
  14. The Hippopotamus Pool by Elizabeth Peters (audiobook, 3-stars)
  15. Ozma of Oz by L. Frank Baum (3-stars)
I read quite a few good books this month and I discovered a new author, Dick Francis, whose work I am really liking so far. 


  1. I'm so impressed you managed to read ALL those books plus Wolf Hall in one month! I'm curious to hear about why it was a 3 star read for you.

    1. For me a 3-star read is good. I liked Wolf Hall, but there were parts where it dragged a bit and other places where it got a bit confusing so it didn't get a 4 star rating. Five-star ratings are rare for me and really only go to books that are really outstanding reading experiences (obviously quite subjective). Three stars is a solid book by an author I am open to reading more from.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
