Read and TBR for February and March

Hello March, you crazy month that seems to have magically appeared when we just said happy new year 2020!

Well, February was a little longer this year. How did you spend your leap day? I was, unfortunately, battling another cold. I think I was feeling a touch unwell right as our family vacation began. I managed to hold on and then totally crashed the day after we got home. Thankfully, I’m almost back at 100%. The vacation was great despite the horrifying discovery that all three of my children love roller coaster rides! How can they belong to me??? I was screaming in fear, while my four year old sat next to me screaming “best birthday ever” at the same time. My sister then tried to put it in perspective, explaining that if the four year old was allowed on it, it was clearly a baby ride. I’m not speaking to my sister at the moment. 😆

Familial discord aside, February was another good reading month and I got through eleven books. They were mostly light, easy, fun romances and cozy mysteries.


Read and TBR

The cozies were: On the Lamb, Grave Haunting, Tea With Milk and Murder, Freaky Reapers, Only the Lonely, Barnabas Tew and the Case of the Missing Scarab, Mouse of Cards and Two Down, Bun To Go. Romances were represented by Hostage to Pleasure and A Vicarage Reunion. I didn’t read any historical fiction in Feb but I did get in a YA Fantasy through Children of Virtue and Vengeance. Six of these I read via my Kindle Unlimited subscription and one came off my physical shelf.

I decided to do my reading in maps for the month again. I might do it every month, or as the mood strikes. Three of the books I read are actually in Michigan and two are completely set in fantasy lands. COVAV has a Nigeria inspiration (and Lagos is the royal capital) and Barnabas Tew is based on Egyptian mythology.

I’ve decided on six books to start with. One is an author request for the series finale of a series I’ve enjoyed. Another series finale I’m finally getting to is Merciful Promise. I’ve got one review for a blog tour and then more cozy mysteries and romance books.

Half-Light by Matt Doyle

Hers to Tame by Rhenna Morgan

Bridget Jones’s Baby by Helen Fielding

Where Lightning Strikes by A.L. Jackson

Till Death Do Us Tart by H.Y. Hanna

A Merciful Promise by Kendra Elliot

I should easily get through these six and have no idea as yet what extras I’ll be adding. I’ll see if my soul can handle starting the next Suanne Laqueur book… maybe.

What about you? What are you looking forward to reading this month? Feel free to share links to your March reading lists in the comments.

      1. My niece moved the desk chair, the one with wheels and I WAs clutching my head. I have motion sickness. And she went – faster, Aunty, faster. You are too slow

      2. No the other babe…. Amanda is the freaky one. Amazon suggests her books. I was unable to recollect the name of the other who has 8 or 10 books in her series

    1. Thanks and thanks Jennifer.
      Oh my goodness, I’ve been eyeing up that new series. She really pulls you into the story. Just started Merciful Promise and already I’m nervous. Lol.


  1. i really had to laugh at your description of February. don’t i know that situation, stare at the kid and wonder where they came from. just to remind you–they truly are their own separate people–not an extension of you. (probably a good thing for my kids)
