Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 972 comments I may not be able to do all the challenges, but will have a go! :)



1 The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant. I was so disappointed in Blood & Beauty but this book is the Dunant I love & admire. She is far better with fictional characters in a smaller setting. In spite of the unecessary prologue I'm going to give this 5* Finished 19/03/15 The Birth of Venus
2 Indiscretion by Jude Morgan.Recommended by a GR friend. When I want Austen or Heyer I should read Austen or Heyer. 2.5* Finished 13/03/15 Indiscretion
3 The Wandering Prince by Jean Plaidy. Real names Eleanor Alice Burford & then Mrs. George Percival Hibbert, wrote under several other nom de plumes. The most well known other than the Plaidy one were Victoria Holt & Philippa Castle. Not one of Plaidy's stronger efforts - too many POV characters, the book in some parts unfocussed with trite dialogue. Minette's (Charles II youngest sister) last years were fascinating though. 3* Finished 1/3/15. The Wandering Prince (Stuart Saga, #4)
4 These Old Shades, by Georgette Heyer. My favourite book as a young teen I have read this more than any other book. GH's superb writing & characterisation make you forget about all the improbabilities. 5* 3/3/15 These Old Shades
5 Why Shoot a Butler? by Georgette Heyer. One of her worst books - definitely her worst detective novel. First & probably last read of this title for me. The romantic leads are both grumpy & horrible & frankly deserve each other. Barely 2* Finished 24/2/15. Why Shoot a Butler?
6 The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu YA High School tale about bullying & slut shaming. There is one kind character. Characterisation a bit flat but that helps make the book's point that this could happen to anyone. 4* Finished 25/2/15 The Truth About Alice
7 Venetia by Georgette Heyer (my battered old Pan has a dog on cover - see my review!) 5*. After A Civil Contract, probably GH's most realistic romance. Finished 2/2/15 Venetia
Hunter's Moon by Dana Stabenow my copy has Kate's dog Mutt on cover. 4* Fast paced & thrilling, but a bit violent for my tastes. Finished 8/2/15 Hunter's Moon

Feb 11 - Make a Friend Day ♥Read a book recommended by a friend.
Dust (Silo, #3) by Hugh Howey
Dust by Hugh Howey is a wee bit of a fudge for this category - the series was recommended by a friend, and this is the 3rd and final book in the series.

I was a bit cross with some of the author's choices on the way, but I guess they were necessary for the greater good of the story/providing motivation for some of the action, etc. Overall I was satisfied by the conclusion to the series, and was amused by the author's note coming before the epilogue. Neat trick, Hugh!

Feb 13 - Get a Different Name Day ♥Read a book by an author who writes under more than one name.
Ice Games (Games, #3) by Jessica Clare
Ice Games by Jessica Clare, which is a pan name for Jill Myles... and I think she also writes under at least one other name.

This is the 3rd book in her "Games" series, which is basically smut a playful romance series based around reality tv shows, and one of my guilty pleasures. This is probably the one I've enjoyed least of the series so far, due to the setting/competition being less interesting than the previous two. It is also the shortest I've read in the series so far.

Feb 14 - Valentine's Day ♥Read a book from the romance genre OR read a book with a pink cover.
Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3) by Marissa Meyer
Cress by Marissa Meyer has "Romance" as one of the genres listed on the book's main page.

Sigh. So, now that I've read the first 3 books in this series in the space of about 6 weeks, I now have to wait for the concluding volume. This series is in no way great literature, but is still a pleasant, easy read, even if plot twists are generally pretty well signposted.


Feb 16 - Do A Grouch A Favor Day ♥Read a book with a grumpy character (or one who pretends to be grumpy) OR a book that makes you laugh out loud.

Feb 17 - Random Acts of Kindness Day ♥Read a book with a character who is kind OR a book that was given to you, no strings attached (gifts count)

Feb 23 - International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day ♥Read a book with a dog on the cover, in the title or in the story.

Darkpool | 1020 comments So, right in time for this challenge a friend recommended a book for me. Awesome! Sadly there's a waiting list of 200+ at the library!!!!!

Start any time, Carol. Just as long as it's in February.

The dates are just those days of celebration I selected for the challenge, but do not have to be read specifically on that day. And you don't have to read a book for all of those days if you don't want to - just those you have time and books to fit.

My daughter and I have read ALL the 'in Death' books, and both have our names down at the library for the new one that hasn't come yet! A few recently I've found a little tiresome, but the last couple were fun again.

For some reason I lost track of them, but I've been wanting to pick them up again, so these challenges have been good for something! Yeah, we've just been getting her backlist into work again, so I've been slowly amassing my collection.

I'd really recommend them! The majority of them are fantastic, bar a few duds, and most can be read as standalones, though a little of the backstory might be lost.

I read one or two of her Nora Roberts books but didn't care for them (not a genre I read). The 'in Death' ones, however, are set a little in the future (I love sci-fi) and that's fun. The key character, Eve Dallas, is a great 'wounded-hero' type, and the NY cop setting is gritty and fun with great paced repartee. Sometimes there's a bit much blood and guts, but she is a homicide detective, and I prefer books not to have explicit sex scenes, but she actually does them very well. Besides which, it's easy to skip the page or two (though I'd never recommend this series to my mother, because of the sex. Mind you, she wouldn't enjoy any of the nastier murders either.).

Kathleen Dixon (kiwikathleen) | 1471 comments I had this - The Harsh Cry of the Heron/ Lian Hearn (real name Gillian Rubinstein) for:
Feb 13 - Get a Different Name Day ♥Read a book by an author who writes under more than one name
BUT I couldn't be bothered reading past 70 pages. This is the 4th in the Tales of the Otori series. I loved the first (Across the Nightingale Floor), really enjoyed the 2nd, but only liked the 3rd and wondered whether to bother with this last one. Thought I'd finish the series, but am finding it much too wordy, and have no particular interest in the characters any more. I read 70 pages, then the last chapter.
Not enough to count for this challenge, but there's no point in reading it just for that reason.....

I've had to add this to my to read list, Erica. The Poisoner's Handbook was on TV the other day, with some of the stories about forensic medicine. It really whet my appetite and then you mentioned it on Goodreads - it's a sign... Did you have a hard copy? I'm thinking of getting it on my Kindle. Some non-fiction doesn't translate that well to electronic format, and some are better in electronic format.


message 29: by Megan (new)

Lesley | 1569 comments Just wondering, do we want to run this challenge through March as well? I know I'll not get anywhere near doing much more than one more book for it so definitely won't finish all in February. Let me know what you think.

Can't help you with the dog.
Are you reading all the alphabet ones by Sue Grafton? I thought I'd read some, but I haven't marked any of them. Must be thinking of the jigsaw puzzle series that I think I've still got - A is for ..., with a little booklet and clues. Quite fun.

P.D.R. Lindsay (pdrlindsay) | 1643 comments Yes, all the dog ones I can think of I have read already.

I've read most of the Sue Grafton's, but this was one which had slipped through the gap. They are a good read.
