Well, it is a good thing I read a great classic, a WW comic compilation, and two great non-fiction books or my rating average would have really tanked. So many of these books were NOOK freebies, so maybe this month could serve as a lesson to me to maybe NOT download every free book that looks remotely interesting. I did read many new-to-me authors...and found that I don't like most of their writing.

 

Most disappointing read: The Captain's Bluestocking Mistress (Dukes of War #2) by Erica Ridley. Hoping the next book in the series returns to the humor and great storytelling.

 

Best read: Is It Just Me? by Miranda Hart. Hilarious and true.

 

Bring on March!
