February Reading Wrap Up

Sometimes, I just really find myself losing the motivation to read. And February was like that for me. I was busy, the weather was bad and I really just wanted to snuggle in bed watching Netflix rather than having to put in the energy to read. Also, it took me a while to read my first book of the month. I enjoyed it but found it to be the sort of book I could only read for a few pages at a time. That being said, I picked up towards to end of the month so hopefully, I'll read some awesome books in March.

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion
This is the follow-up book to The Rosie Project. I read it two years ago so I was a little hazy. Without spoilers: Don is a serious professor of genetics at an Australian university and ends up marrying Rosie who is a bit of a free spirit. It's implied heavily that Don has some form of autism but it's never explicitly said. In this book, they find out that they are expecting a child. Which Don has some struggles with. I enjoyed this book and it was a nice continuation of the story but I wasn't wowed by it. 3/5 stars.

How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid
Now, this is a unique book. It's written as a mocking self-help book but also tells a story in which you are to imagine yourself as a young man attempting to get filthy rich in rising Asia. Mohsin Hamid is an absolute artist of a writer. His books are poetic and poignant and every other positive word you can think of to describe a book. I have to admit this probably isn't my favourite out of his books but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I gave it 3/5 stars.

As always, leave any book recommendations in the comments.
