Books I read in February

Well, I definitely slipped on my reading in February: I only completed two books the entire month. Luckily, I adored them both and am feeling super motivated to read more moving forward! I’m currently in the middle of several books, so I know I can get my numbers way up in March. Here’s what I did manage to read last month.

City Lights bookstore, San Francisco

More Tales of the City, Armistead Maupin

This is the sequel to Tales of the City, the fictional San Francisco-based book I read back in January. I liked it even better than the first! It was so fun to catch up with a group of characters I already “knew,” and follow their adventures in San Francisco and around the world. I also, as you know, got to visit San Francisco last month and explore the lane that inspired these books – such a fun, unique experience! Highly recommend, as usual. Five stars

The Martian, Andy Weir

I am honestly shocked at how much I enjoyed this book. Although I love space and astronomy, I’m not a science-minded person, and I also love to have a lot of dialogue when I’m reading fiction. Because of that, reading the science journals of a person stranded alone on Mars didn’t appeal to me at all, but I wanted to give this book a shot before I watched the film. And I LOVED it! Mark Watney – the title character – has a sarcastic sense of humor that completely held my attention, and I finished the novel in four days flat. Just in time to watch the movie before the Oscars! Five stars

So, that’s it. Quality over quantity for February, but I need to step it up if I’m going to read 52 books this year! Any recommendations?
