I read fourteen books in February. Yes, I was surprised by that number as well but, frankly, what else is there to do at the moment? I found something to enjoy in all the books I read but there were a few that stood out. Links from each title will take you to my review. You can find a list of all the books I’ve read so far in 2021 here. If we’re not already friends on Goodreads, send me a friend request or follow my reviews.
When The World Was Ours by Liz Kessler – Inspired by the true story of her father’s escape from Nazi-occupied Europe, the author takes the reader on a journey from Vienna in 1936 to the outbreak of the Second World War and beyond in the company of three childhood friends
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith – The heartwarming story of the Nolan family, first-generation immigrants to the United States, and their life in the Williamsburg slums of Brooklyn
The Diplomat’s Wife by Michael Ridpath – An eventful road trip across Cold War era Europe combined with all the ingredients of a wartime espionage thriller
Daughters of Night by Laura Shepherd-Robinson – Intricately plotted historical crime novel that oozes period atmosphere
Madam by Phoebe Wynne – Elements of suspense combined with a distinctly dystopian feel makes for an unsettling but utterly compelling read
