Wow, February was not a great reading month for me. After plowing though so many books in January I kind of lost steam in February, and also with the exception of The Encyclopedia of Early Earth I just didn't like any of the books I read this month!
I was not planning to read two Dodie Smith books in a row, but both holds came in at the library at the same time and you kind of have to take them as they come from the library. Plus I though they could be fun like I Capture the Castle, which happens to be one of my favorite books. Instead they turned out to be rather depressing slogs. Now I'm afraid to ever read I Capture the Castle incase I don't like it as much as I used to! How Green Was My Valley I thought I'd really enjoy, but it turned out to be completely cloying and insufferable. The bright spot was The Encyclopedia of Early Earth , which was magical and fun with inspiring artwork.
Normally I would list the movies I watched here, but you know I didn't watch a single movie in February!
