A Month In Books - February 2019

Welcome to February's Month In Books roundup! I've linked this post up with Nicole's Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

I read 14 books this month including both of my Books From The Backlog choices before the next post was due. I'm pleased with how BFTB is working out now because it's really helping me chip away at my TBR pile. The selection also included a heartbreaking cancer memoir, superb Malaysian and Mexican novels, an alternative approach to plant-based eating, and a scarily depressing factual view of what's probably in store for the US and UK over the coming decade. A wide-ranging bookish month!

Regular blog series:
In Febuary I blogged Bookish Bingo and State of the ARC updates as well as a second Cover Characteristics post featuring Swimming. WorldReads featured books from Northern Ireland and I will be 'visiting' Kenya for March's WorldReads on the 5th.

The Spotlight post giveaway winner was The Virgin And The Bull by Erato. (If you'd like the chance to win a Literary Flits Spotlight post for your book, add its link to This Linkup. One winner drawn each month!)


Now, on with this January Reading Roundup!

My Book Of The Month was a tricky decision again this month - there's just too many superb books out there! In the end it came down to How To Lose A Country versus The Night Tiger versus Lost Children Archive. I think they're all amazing in their own ways but am plumping for ...


I hope you have found some books to tempt you in this selection! You can keep up with my daily book posts on Literary Flits and don't forget all the Giveaways are listed in my Giveaway Linkup.

    1. I think that migraine book would have good advice for easing migraine pain through diet choices. I hope it might help you

  8. Sounds like a fantastic month of reading. I just went off to read your review of How To Lose a Country because you described it as "a scarily depressing factual view of what's probably in store for the US and UK over the coming decade." I don't like to think about it, but we have to!

    1. We have to indeed, and it was scary to see how the UK is pretty much following exactly in Turkey's political footsteps

  9. Such an amazing amount of books for a short month--one for every 2 days is a great month. The Night Tiger has a beautiful cover and I'm headed to Goodreads to check it out.
