February 2015 Recap: Books + Favorites

February was a terribly busy month for me. It was also extremely cold and depressing. I read, but for the most part the books were either novellas or short stories. There are only a few full-length novels on my list. As far as reviewing? I did not find the time to really sit down and write reviews the way I wanted to.

My favorite read of the month is the SFF novelette by Kai Ashante Wilson, The Devil in America. My favorite full-length novels from this list are Entreat Me and Radiance (Wraith Kings, #1) by Grace Draven, both fantasy romances, and the gay fiction debut novel by Michael Harwood, The Manservant. Lots of B's and C's.

February Books Read: 16 (Novellas: 10)

  1. I hope it's starting to warm up where you are!

    Looks like Feb was a slightly mixed month reading-wise for you. I used to really like Summer Devon's M/M historicals (I think she co-wrote them with Bonnie Dee?) but haven't really read the more recent ones. I need to read the Grace Draven books still...

    1. Li, this past weekend it finally began to warm up, but March was cooold too.

      I think you'll enjoy The Gentleman and The Lamplighter by Devon. It's a nice read, in my opinion, just a bit too short. And, I'm really enjoying the Draven books so far. I have Master of Crows slated for April.
