Once again another month is over (another month I’m happy to see go) and once again it’s time to wrap up my monthly reads! I read a total of seven books and two poetry collections this month.
My February reads:
“Hold Your Own” by Kate Tempest
“Homegoing” by Yaa Gyasi
“Human Acts” by Han Kang
“Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe” by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
“The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet” by Becky Chambers
“After Dark” by Haruki Murakami
“Bright Minds Empty Souls” by Jennae Cecelia
“Stoner” by John Williams
“Next Year in Jerusalem” by John Kolchack
This was a great reading month! I finally got around to reading some of my most anticipated reads, such as “After Dark”, “Homegoing”, and “Human Acts”, and I’m happy to say to that I loved them. I also read some books I wouldn’t usually go for, or don’t read often, such as “The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet” (sci-fi) and Kate Tempest’s poetry collection “Hold Your Own”, and I really enjoyed them a lot more than I expected.
My top favorite book this month though is Han Kang’s “Human Acts”, a novel about the Gwangju Uprising, a violent student uprising in South Korea in 1980. It’s a brutal but amazing book and I’ll talk more about it in my review to come.
How was February for you guys reading-wise?
