TSS: February’s Pick(s) of the Month
Just a short post today, as I think my blogging energies are better directed towards the six million reviews I’ve been procrastinating writing. It’s been a reading-heavy weekend, as yesterday was the second Saturday in a row that I’ve spent ignoring all of my pesky grown-up responsibilities and just tearing through a Patrick Ness novel. (I’m done with the series, now, and reviews will be forthcoming, but the short version: damn, they were good.) Last night and today I’ve been immersed in Anthony Bourdain’s A Cook’s Tour, which, like Kitchen Confidential, is very funny, and also very hard on my diet and my grocery budget.
I’d also like to take a moment to do my Pick of the Month for February, before I forget and suddenly it’s July, like last year. (On a related topic, how the hell did it get to be March? Who approved that without asking me first?)
February was a great reading month for me. Not uniformly brilliant – there was more than one book I struggled with – but with a lot of good-to-great books to round it out. It was such a good month that I really can’t pick just one book as the best of the month… so I am going to pick four, instead. I loved all of these, and picking one as the winner at the exclusion of the others just seems monstrously unfair.
Let’s hope that March is just as good… Thus far, it’s been shaping up nicely.
What about you, readers? What’s the best book (or books) you read in February? Which do you have high hopes for in March?
