February Book Review

We are welcoming March in with open arms and I'm hoping that it brings as much green to our area, as there is in this picture. 

 With everyone getting ready for family vacations & spring breaks, I thought today might be a good time to share what I read last month, in case you are needing a new book or two to read.

The Mistress, was the first book that I read this month, and I really liked it.  Honestly, I had never heard of Danielle Steel before, which surprised the heck out of my husband... because I guess everyone has heard of Danielle Steel?!  Anyway, I loved this story.  It was so different from any story I've ever read, which always makes it fun, and it ended up being one of my favorite books from the month.  She leads a life, that none of us have lived or ever will live, so it was interesting stepping into her world for a bit.

 Last month, tons of bloggers recommended, It Ends With Us, and I'm so glad they did.  It was good! It is so much more than I thought it would be.  This is one of those books that I can't even tell you what it's about, without giving it all away.  There are a couple of scenes in this book, but you can just skip over those.  It was such an intriguing book, and one that I'm sure most of you would enjoy.

 I had high hopes for The Second Season, as last month I had really good luck with books of this kind.  This book ended up being okay.  It wasn't what I would say was good or bad... just okay.

 After being a bit disappointed with the The Second Season, I decided to try another Danielle Steel book.  I ended up borrowing, Property Of A Noblewoman, which I thought was good.  I actually liked this one more than I thought I would.  It was another easy read, that also happened to make me want to travel to Europe for a few weeks.  ;)

 Mail Order Bride was another one that I really wanted to like, because mail order bride books are usually some of my favorites.  But sadly, this book was just okay...  I had higher hopes for it as well.

February was such a weird month for books.  I liked everything that wasn't what I would consider my usual reading material, and I was a bit disappointed in what I would normally pick to read.  Who knows what I'll like this month.

Have your read any of these books?  If so, what did you think?  Also, I need a few book suggestions myself, what do you recommend this month?


  1. I'm with your husband-- I'm surprised you didn't know who Danielle Steele is. lol. I've got to read that colleen hoover book!

  2. How did you read so many books???? I barely got through 2! Haha

  3. I tried It Ends with Us a while back, but couldn't get into it. Maybe I need to give it another chance after seeing everyone's great reviews. Thanks for the book ideas!

  4. OKAY, I made a list on my phone so I'll remember these. I put Redeeming Love (but just realized it's historical...I doubt I can do that one😏), It Ends With Us and The Mistress. I like Danielle Steele, so I'm sure I'll like that one and the other one as well. Happy Friday Eve!

    1. No you have to read Redeeming Love, I am with Jenny -- my favorite book of all time!!!

  5. Darn it - I was hoping those Mail Order Bride books would be good too. I might have to try Danielle Steel books but do they get too steamy???? I need to look at more Francine Rivers books and see if there is a Karen Kingsbury I have yet to read ;). I think there is one more Melissa Jagears I need to read too :). xoxo ERIN

  6. Adding It Ends With Us to my reading list!

  7. I have It Ends With Us in my amazon cart just need to pull the trigger and get it!
