books I read this month

What I Read in February

The Missing Treasures of Amy Ashton by Eleanor Ray (blah)

All Her Little Secrets by Wanda M. Morris (anti climatic and the timeline seemed really off to me)

Just Like the Other Girls by Claire Douglas (on the other hand this book also had a bonkers plot but a tight timeline and conclusion)

The White Lady (La Dame Blanche) Quentin Zuttion

Admissions: A Memoir of Surviving Boarding School by Kendra James (good first half, blah second half)

Catch Her When She Falls by Allison Buccola
(Flat)

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star (but don’t have sex or take the car) by Dick Moore (and contributions from many other child stars) (gossipy and interesting)

The Couple at Number 9 by Claire Douglas (I feel like I shouldn’t enjoy her books as much as I do, they are all sort of wacky but she really is good with details, locations and timelines in a way a lot of these domestic mystery/low key thriller books aren’t )

Cherish Farrah by Bethany C. Morrow (great premise but kind of a mess)

The Other Family by Wendy Corsi Staub (not horrible but very abrupt ending that left loose ends)

From Hollywood with Love: The Rise and Fall (and Rise Again) of the Romantic Comedy by Scott Meslow (okay but he made some odd choices in structure)

Red Thread of Fate by Lyn Liao Butler (ok but oddly fatphobic and a little ableist in the prose for no reason)

Will by Will Smith & Mark Manson (I could talk about this all night so much WTF)

Homicide and Halo-Halo by Mia P. Manansala
(Eh)

She Memes Well: Essays by Quinta Brunson (good! I always appreciate some info about money and work when someone is up and coming)

By the Book by Jasmine Guillory (ok)

Gentrifier: A Memoir by Anne Elizabeth Moore (I have no good feelings about this book)

Rock the Boat by Beck Dorey-Stein (bad but I liked the location so I finished it)

Wish You Were Gone by Kieran Scott (eh, messy)

Wildcat by Amelia Morris (eh, I had some questions about the author)

The Verifiers by Jane Pek (loved the concept and characters, hated the Inspector Yuan references, felt like the end was really rushed)
