Whohoo March is here, and spring is in the air! (Well hopefully it is). It feels like I have spent the WHOLE winter, coughing and sneezing, and feeling generally unwell. I’m seriously thinking of hibernating next winter!
As usual I’m digressing but as it’s March it means it’s time to choose my book of the month for February. I read some cracking books in February, but if I’m honest the book I’ve chosen was always going to be a contender for my book of the month, and it’s already one of my top reads of the year so far.
How do I choose my book of the month?
I choose a book I feel is particularly outstanding, a book that covers every aspect of what I look for in a read, an original plot, great characters and a storyline that draws me in from the first page and keeps me in its grips until I reach the very last page. So without further ado here’s my book of the month for February.
I Am Dust by Louise Beech
Louise Beech is such an extraordinary author, she doesn’t just write a book; she gives each book a heart, a heart that gives life to her stories and her characters. I Am Dust takes you on a journey of magic and murder, love, ambition, jealousy and loss. It’s a ghost story entwined with a murder mystery, but it’s not the kind of ghost story that’s outside the realm of possibility, it’s plausible, heartbreaking, unnerving and creepy.

Books I’m hoping to read in March
I have a couple of books to read for book blog tours, but apart from that I’m hoping to read some up and coming book releases, plus a couple of my own book shelf reads.
Wow lovely books for March Lorraine. I have a couple of them
I remember your review for I am Dust so not surprised it’s your book of the month! xx
Thanks Nicki I loved this book x
I think about hibernating every year but somehow I never manage to 😅 I have to agree with your book of the month and a few of the ones you’re recommending. I hope your bookish March will be just as good!
