Reading report for February 2011

I finished 15 books in February. 2 were rereads, both of them by Terry Pratchett. One was a Top Mysteries Challenge book, 3 were What's in a Name Challenge books, and 8 were TBR challenge books. I also reviewed a Buchmesse Frankfurt challenge book that I didn‘t read during the month.

I discovered a new author, or rather author team, that I want to read more books by: Brahms and Simon, whose mystery, A Bullet in the Ballet, was the funniest book I have read in a long while (and I definitely needed some cheering up in February).

The best read of the month was A Month in the Country by J.L. Carr, a perfect little gem of a novella. Now I want to find the movie and watch that.

The Books:
Caryl Brahms & S.J. Simon: A Bullet in the Ballet. Murder mystery, very funny.
Suzanne Brockmann: The Unsung Hero and Into the Night. Romantic suspense.
Nancy Marie Brown: A Good Horse Has No Color. Travelogue and memoir.
J.L. Carr: A Month in the Country. Literary novel.
Jean Hager: The Grandfather Medicine. Murder mystery.
Georgette Heyer: No Wind of Blame. Murder mystery.
