It is time to choose my reading for March and join in with the Year In Books hosted by Laura at Circle of Pine Trees.
My selection for March are the following:-
Now for the reviews of the books I read during February:
My first read was this one which was originally one of my January reads that I didn't manage to complete in that month.
This was the first book I have read by Freya North and it certainly won't be the last. It features Frankie who is a single parent who has recently escaped London and moved to Norfolk with her children. On a trip to London she meets Scott, a musician and single parent from Canada and immediately there is chemistry between the two of them. Can they make their long distance relationship work? There is an unexpected twist towards the end of the book - The Turning Point of the title.
My next read was The Trouble With Goats and Sheep.
If I am honest I am still not sure about this one, it certainly wasn't the worst book I have ever read but neither was it the best. The start was promising and there were parts I really enjoyed with touches of humour and some good descriptive writing but I felt it didn't really go anywhere - the 'mystery' was not really much of a mystery and I found the ending disappointing, it didn't really tie up any of the loose ends. I just feel this book didn't live up to all the hype but as I seem to be in the minority with this view, perhaps the fact that my reading time was limited to a quick read before going to sleep each night could be the reason that it just didn't flow for me.
It was then time to pick up Amy Snow by Tracy Rees and this was one that kept me engrossed from start to finish and reading way past the time when I should have settled down to sleep.
This is a debut novel and began when a baby was found lying abandoned in the snow. The book was full of interesting and well-developed characters with an engaging and intriguing plot although perhaps in places it was a little drawn out. Never the less this book is beautifully written and I will definitely look out for more books by this author in the future.
My last choice for February is one that I have only just started so will continue with that one before starting on my March reads and I will review it with this months books.
