I’ll be honest with you guys, I didn’t get as much reading done as I wanted to in February. I blame it on Disney films,Steam video game sales and Humble bundle. I claim no responsibility. This means I am slightly behind on my reading challenge. But fear not, for I believe March will be a much better reading month. Or at least I hope so…
The first book I read this month was The Greatest Show On Earth by Richard Dawkins. This book was a bit different to the other books I usually read, as its non-fiction. It was actually lent to me by a work colleague and despite not being a book I would usually read, I found rather interesting. It’s all about the argument for the theory of evolution and it pretty much covers every scientific argument for it. This book was really easy to read, even with when explaining rather complex science, with a rather humorous tone at points. If you want a book that delves into the theory of evolution, I would recommend this as a great starting point.
The other books belong in the same series: The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch. I explained in my January reading round-up post that The Lies of
Locke Lamora was like Robin Hood meets Ocean’s Eleven. It was amazing and certainly is one of my favourite fantasy novels Red Seas Under Red Skies is more Locke Lamora but with pirates. And one thing I love (along with Eevees and Moogles) are pirates. Seriously stick a pirate in a video game/book/film and you’ve pretty much got me sold. I would definitely recommend these books to anyone who wants a fantasy book about incredibly likeable thieves and I ‘ll certainly be picking up the other books in the series at some point.
So that’s February’s reading, like I said, I didn’t get much reading done but what I did read I thoroughly enjoyed so it wasn’t all bad. Currently, I’m reading The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien which is not like The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings but looks to be quite interesting. Anyway, I’ll see you next month for another update!
