I’ve been reading a lot lately, and not always feeling like I want to write a full review for each book read (or sometimes I just don’t have much to say about a book). So I was inspired by Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Quick Lit posts, as well as Hannah at So Obsessed With‘s monthly Quick Lit posts, and decided to do something similar as a way to briefly discuss the books I read in a month but don’t write full reviews for.
February was a decent reading month. I read 12 books, and I’ve reviewed/will be posting reviews for nine of them. Here are my thoughts on the rest!
Prosper’s Demon, K.J. Parker (purchased) – 5⭐
This novella was fantastic! It was really interesting, and I loved the ending. I am definitely going to track down more by K.J. Parker.
A Perfect Crime, A Yi, Anna Holmwood (transl.) (purchased) – 3⭐
I think I went into this with really high expectations. It was fine. I didn’t love it, didn’t hate it, was curious to know how it ended, but it won’t stay with me. I haven’t read L’Etranger by Albert Camus since I was in high school, many many many years ago, but A Perfect Crime reminded me of that book (however accurate it may be).
Murder Lo Mein (A Noodle Shop Mystery #3), Vivien Chien (purchased) – 3⭐
This was another pleasant entry in this cozy mystery series. I already own the next book in the series and am looking forward to reading it.
Strange Planet, Nathan Pyle (purchased) – 5⭐
Hilarious and delightful!
Shelter, Yung Yun (library) – 4⭐
This book really crept up on me. I thought it was a tangled and moving story.
Dead To Her, Sarah Pinborough (library) – 2⭐
This was disappointing. It was too long, tried to be too complex and came off as convoluted, and it was pretty boring. I should have DNFd but I was hoping that I’d start to enjoy it as it went on.
