Monthly Summary: February 2019

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…
