February Reads

February has definitely been a better month than January was.  I'm actually very surprised that I read more books this month. With it being world book day I thought it be a great time to share with you my February reads.

So onto the books: 


Daisy chain by Kirstie Malone 
I won't get into it much as you can read my review here  but Daisy chain was my first book of February and its a a gripping, thriller with plenty of twists and turns along the way.


The Toddler survival guide by Mike and Heather Spohr 
I'm putting it out there I didn't like this read at all. Some of the tips are great but its not as humours as would like. The pictures in the book look boring too and I couldn't wait to finish it and move onto a better book.

These Shallow Graves By Jennifer Donnelly 
The story is about a wealthy family, a deadly secret and a young woman with more to lose than she knows. The story is based in New York during the 1890's. I really loved this book I definitely feel it was a slow start but I persevered and really got into it.

The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams aged 2 and 1/4 by Katie Kerby
Another amazing book by Katie Kerby author of Hurrah for gin. A book about the honest side of parenting through the eyes of a toddler. The book made me laugh out load and not feel so alone.

Happy by Fearne Cotton 
This is a great read for dipping in and out of its filled with Fearne's advice, exercises, tips and tricks drawn from her experiences in regards to mental health and being Happy. I have also been using the happy journal that goes along side the book from the beginning of the year. I've actually now ordered her book calm too which i am hoping will be as good as this.

  11. I didn't know Fearne Cotton wrote a book? Then again I'm over in Canada so I rely on all of you for UK choices :) I might check it out. There's always little nuggets in self help books. Thanks for sharing.

  14. I’d love to read the shallow graves, I’m into thrillers like that.
    But never have I read that many books so quickly, you really had a busy month, amazing.

  18. I like the sound of Daisy Chain - I try to guess the ending all the way through these kinds of books but never manage to get it right!

  19. I'm impressed by how many books you managed to read in one month! I like the sound of The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams aged 2 and 1/4 by Katie Kerby.

  20. I like the sound of the two thrillers, but I'm not into anything about looking after yourself! And stuff about toddlers is definitely many years behind me now...
    Popping over from Read With Me.

  23. I'm so jealous of your book reading abilities... I used to read voraciously, but I can count on one hand the number of books I've managed to finish since my girls were born! x

  24. I love Katie Kirby's Hurrah for Gin pictures, I haven't read her books but I'm sure they are just as funny. #Readwithme
