February was a disappointing reading month. Most books had great potential at the beginning, but failed to carry the brilliance through to the end. The standout that bucked this trend was Into That Forest by Louis Nowra, a wonderfully atmospheric book about two girls rescued by Tasmanian tigers. I highly recommend that you get hold of a copy!

Plans for March
At the moment I am listening to the audio version of The Martian by Andy Weir and I’m loving it! It combines survival and great science – two of my favourite subjects. I hope to have a review up soon.
I am also taking part in Stu’s Eastern European Month by reading The Book Of Fathers by Miklos Vamos. It’s really good so far, but I’m a bit worried the magical realism is going to take over. I’ll let you know how I found it soon.
Next week I’m going to see David Hempleman-Adams talk at my local library so I’ve got his new book, No Such Thing As Failure: The Extraordinary Life of a Great British Adventurer, to read in advance of the evening. I’m looking forward to hearing him speak, but after seeing the dangerous trips he enjoys I am really glad I’m not his wife!
March is packed with fantastic new releases. I’m lucky enough to have review copies in advance so I will be reading:
I Am Radar by Reif Larsen (I’ve nearly finished this chunkster and it is amazing!)
I have high hopes that this could be the best reading month I’ve had in a long time. Fingers crossed!
I hope you have a fantastic March too!
