I only read one book in February, so I didn’t blog about it. I’ve added it to my March update.
- Paris Match (Stone Barrington #31) by Stuart Woods – I love this series. Whenever I need an easy read, I can rely on a Child mystery to entertain me. I love hearing about Stone Barrington’s adventures.
- The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn – I’m not sure where I got the recommendation for this (maybe directly from Barnes and Noble who know my love for mysteries?), but I loved it! It’s a LONG, but fast-paced mystery about a woman suffering from agoraphobia, who spends most of her time stuck in doors observing her neighbors. What she sees, or thinks she sees, through a fog of alcohol and medication, unravels into a twisty road until the final end. Anna’s trauma comes out in various self-harming and self-protecting ways, surrounding by an odd cast of characters. I could have survived with a few less references to old black and white thriller movies, which were riddled throughout the entire story. But otherwise, it was a fun read!
- The Memory Watcher by Minka Kent – I listened to this as an audiobook at the same time I was reading the book above. I was anxious for a week! This is another mystery with two female protagonists. The two leads narrate every other chapter (one of my favorite storytelling methods). This book was creepy, as Autumn “knew” Daphne by stalking her on Social Media before she managed to meet her in real life. There were some silly secondary characters, and some fun plot twists throughout the story.
- Lead Like a Pirate: Make School Amazing for Your Students and Staff by Shelley Burgess and Beth Houf – This is my second time reading this book co-written by my friend and former colleague, Shelley. I love the uplifting messages they share about leadership and teaching and learning! Their ANCHOR conversations provide a powerful framework for strength-based coaching.
