Welcome back to another Monthly Summary here on Pages and Tea.
So, what happened on my blog over the last month?
I finally came to the end of the wonderful Winternight trilogy. I know the story of Vasya and Morozko, and it was everything I hoped for. I don’t tend to re-read, but this series is certainly one that I would love to experience again.
I was also back in the company of M. Poirot, which is always a pleasure, although he didn’t really make an appearance in Taken at the Flood until at least half way through!
And then I ventured to the Scottish Highlands in another murder mystery tale with a difference – you don’t find out who has been killed until almost the end of the story. I can’t remember the last time I came across so many unlikeable characters as appear in The Hunting Party, but that didn’t diminish my reading enjoyment.
I also read The Familiars by Stacey Halls, which is a book I’d been looking forward to for a while.
I took part in Top Ten Tuesday, looking at books I’ve enjoyed which have less than 2000 ratings on Goodreads. This is something I haven’t really paid that much attention to in the past; I look at the average rating, and I’ll read reviews, but not so much the number of ratings. I was quite surprised that some of the books I’ve enjoyed and seen mentioned on quite a few blogs ended up making an appearance in my post.
Here’s a summary of February on Pages and Tea…
The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
Taken at the Flood by Agatha Christie
The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden
The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley
