Month in Review: February
Guapa - Saleem Haddad,Andreas Diesel
The Semester of Our Discontent - Cynthia Kuhn
Lagoon - Nnedi Okorafor
On the Edge of Gone - Corinne Duyvis
Young Blood - Stephanie von Harrach,Sifiso Mzobe
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
Der Susan-Effekt - Peter Urban-Halle,Peter Høeg

February brought grim winter weather and some solid novel reading, helped along by slow times at work. I was also ill for a week and didn't get much of anything done, so progress on my bigger reads stalled. Adorno and Le Guin are still stuck in my Currently Reading queue, there's some reviews I need to catch up on, but overall I'm quite happy with my first full month on BookLikes. 

 

 

4.5 star reads: 

 

Saleem Haddad: Guapa

Corinne Duyvis: On the Edge of Gone

 

4 star reads: 

 

Nnedi Okorafor: Lagoon

Lewis Carroll: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

 

2.5 star reads: 

 

Cynthia Kuhn: The Semester of Our Discontent

Sifiso Mzobe: Young Blood

Peter Høeg: Der Susan-Effekt

 

 

Looks like 2.5 stars are my go-to rating when I didn't quite enjoy a book but didn't hate it either. And I need to write more reviews of novels I do enjoy!
