February Reading Wrap-Up

February is over and what a crazy end of the month it turned out to be.  Between things at work getting busier and Dakota acting up and my diet…. well, let’s just say…. it hasn’t been pretty.

I managed to read a few books this month towards my goal for 2016 as well as my 12-12-12 Book Challenge.


I read this book more because of my interest in the person and not so much her life as a designer.  I was interested to see what type of woman Chanel was and what inspired her to be who she was.  See my review here


A while ago I gave this book a try but at that time, perhaps I was not ready to read it, I couldn’t finish it and it wound up on my “Did not Finish” list.  This year as you know I am doing a reading challenge — see here— So I picked it up again…. turns out this time around I was ready to hear how much of an introvert I really am.  I loved this book this time around.  See my review here.


Big Magic was one of those books that lived on my “want to read” shelf for so long I almost gave up on it.  I’m glad I didn’t.  See my review here


Career of Evil brought me back to my once loved thrillers which I used to read all the time.  I will be writing a review of the book so I won’t say too much here but, although my most favorite book this month, I am glad I picked it up.


Brooklyn is the story of an Irish immigrant in the United States sometime after the war.  This is a story that will take you through all different types of emotions and pulls at your heart.  Being an immigrant myself there were aspects of it that I related with and others that I didn’t and am glad I didn’t.  I will also be writing a review of this book so this is enough for now.  Let’s just say that this is a good contender for one of my favorites of 2016.

It’s time to think about the list of books to read in March….. Stay tuned for that list which should be posted tomorrow.

What will you be reading?
