February Reads

In February I read three books.

I read...

Murder on Astor Place by Victoria Thompson - 4 stars - I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. It was interesting, entertaining and surprising. I loved Sarah, the main character and loved the insights she had into the time she was living in. I am definitely looking forward to reading more in this series. #1 of my 10 authors to try this year.

Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale - 5 stars - I loved the heroine of the book. Charlotte was such fun and it was great to watch her grow throughout the book. This book made me laugh out loud at points and sigh at romantic moments. I loved the characters who were brought back from the first book and really hope she writes more. I was sick part of the time I was reading this book and it was so good it made me forget how terrible I felt. A wonderful Christmas present from my husband and definitely a favorite.

Hana's Suitcase by Karen Levine - 5 stars - An amazing a heart wrenching story. Even knowing the facts of the holocaust I am still always horrified at the loss of life. I am so glad Hana's story is being told.  Read with my girls, Addison & Hannah.

That's four new authors for me so far this year.  One new author (Victoria Thompson) read that I chose ahead of time.
