Top Book for February:

I had many very good reads this month. All my books were either 4, 4.5 or 5. However I did give one book 5 stars, mainly because I was so entertained by the audiobook version. Honestly though every single book this month was worth reading and more.

Nothing this month


So how did your reading month pan out?


  1. I'm always impressed by how productive you are with your reading and, think it is fantastic that you read different formats!

  2. Looks like you had a great reading month. Your incoming books look really great too. Have a great March Kathryn.

  3. You had a great month, Kathryn!!! I read a few of the books on your list and have some of them coming up in my piles! I just started reading The Two-House Family and am going to her book launch next week - I can't wait!!! Hope you have a great March!!!

  4. Great month of reading! When every book is that highly rated, it's a good month. And 8 new authors?! That's so awesome. I've never stopped to think how many new authors I read each month. When I look at my February post, it was 4, which surprises me! More than I thought. And one of them is now one of my new favorites.

  5. Wow great month Kathryn, but how can it be March already!! LOL
    The Susan Mallery is on my list and I'm adding the Patti Callahan Henry since I LOVE her too!

  6. Nice! I had a quiet reading month with around 6 books read (I don't keep track of stats anymore but that sounds about right :) ). I read a few that good books, but nothing stands out at being amazing/5 stars. Hopefully my reading choices in March will be a bit better!

  7. I love how you did your layout and graphics for this post-- very easy to read and understand. Great job with finding new authors! I've been trying to do this lately to get out of my rut. I'm wondering about Emilie Richards, have heard she writes an awesome women's series and the Shondra book-- well I enjoy some of her TV shows, so I guess I'm curious what makes her tick!

  8. I also read 14 books! I like the way you provide a detailed analysis of what you read, authors, etc. Someday I will do that! LOL.

    Enjoy March!

  9. What a great list of books...I fared fairly poorly this month but never make as many reads as you do (I wish I could!)

  10. 14 books is fantastic! Good job!
    Happy March!

  11. wow! I have not read any of your books, but it does look like you had a blast!

  12. You had an awesome month!! I really want to read The Year of Yes- and I think I'll listen to the audiobook because I love them so much and you seemed so pleased with it.

  13. WOW! :D

    You had a GREAT month of reading.

    I am interested in The Ramblers.

  14. Hi,
    You had an awesome month of reading. Haven't read
    any of your books listed. I'll have to check
    them out. Have a great day!

  15. You had a fantastic reading month. How cool that more than half were new to you authors.
