In January I wrote about the books that I wanted to read this year. I’d set myself a Goodreads challenge of reading 120 books during 2020. My intention had been to do a monthly round up of what I’d been reading, so now seems as good a time as any to catch up with that!
A Quiet Month For Books
Considering I managed to read thirteen books in January, February was definitely a quieter month. Only three! The reason I didn’t read so much was because I was busy binge-watching the Inspector Montalbano episodes on BBC iPlayer. They’re an average 100 minutes each. They’re also in Italian with English subtitles, so that was the bulk of my reading this month! Camilleri’s Montalbano books are amongst my absolute favourites, so I’ve been very happy watching/reading this for hours on end!
My Favourite Book in February
I know, I hardly have anything to choose from, but my favourite book was The Board Game: Reclaim Your Children From The Screen by Ellie Dix. I read an article in The Green Parent magazine by Ellie. In it she cited some of the benefits in having a family game night. From there I read her book and now we have a family game night every Friday. We’re seeing the educational benefits of board games too! It was a really interesting read even if, like me, your children aren’t quite screen-addicted teenagers.
My Star Ratings For February’s Books
Here’s the list of my February reading and my star rating out of five for each one. If you click on the rating, it’ll take you over to my Goodreads review (if there is one for that title!) 😊
