January was a crazy month. Less than three weeks in, I had surgery. It was a shock—everything came out of the blue. But with two weeks off work to recover, I spent a lot of time time reading. Then the beginning of February brought a winter storm, which meant more reading time. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite books read from mid-January to mid-February.
A Stroke of Malice and A Wicked Conceit by Anna Lee Huber
I continued my binge of this series until I ran out of books. What do I listen to in the car now? I feel so lost. I can’t wait for book ten to release in April!
Lost in Darkness by Michelle Griep
Late last year, I reread Frankenstein for the first time since high school. I wanted to read it before I read Lost in Darkness, because it uses Frankenstein as an inspiration. Lost in Darkness is a great Gothic novel about scientists going too far in their experiments and doing more harm than good. This is the first in a new series, and I’m really looking forward to more.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I wasn’t a big fan of this book until the end. That’s when everything came together for me. I still wouldn’t list it as a favorite classic, but I’m glad I read it.
In Search of a Prince by Toni Shiloh
I love a good royalty romance, and In Search of a Prince hit the spot! This is such a sweet story that deals with deep themes—forgiveness, grief, and trusting God when your future is uncertain. I love the characters and I’m so excited for the next book!
Midnight on the River Gray by Abigail Wilson
This is my second book to read from this author, and I’m completely hooked. Her Regency mysteries have the perfect eerie feel. I’ve already checked out another audiobook of hers from the library. Maybe these can fill the gap left from finishing the Lady Darby series.
