February 2020 Wrap-Up

This month has been a difficult one personally. As a result I’ve read far less that I had planned. I’m still on track with my Agatha Christie and Goodreads reading challenges, but that’s about all I can say for this month’s reading.

What I’ve Been Reading

I have managed to read

  1. Murder on the Links (Hercule Poirot #2), Agatha Christie
  2. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han
  3. The Man in the Brown Suit, Agatha Christie
  4. The Secret of Chimneys, Agatha Christie
  5. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Hercule Poirot #3), Agatha Christie

Favourite Read: The Man in the Brown Suit by Agatha Christie

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I really struggled with reading this book as I was reading a library e-book loan on my 6 inch mobile phone screen (my library app is not currently compatible with Kindles…). However I absolutely adored this book. It’s the first 5 Star rating I’ve given in my Agatha Christie #CHRISTIE100 reading challenge.


What I’ve Been Watching

Don’t F**k With Cats. Cheer. Orange is the New Black.
NB. I do not own these images. Image rights belong to Netflix

Don’t F**k With Cats is possibly the most disturbing murder/true crime documentary I have ever watched. It’s the first time I can honestly say that I felt my blood run cold. I don’t get shaken easily with the amount of these that I watch but wow. This really was something else.


I only ended up watching Cheer because it was recommended to me by friends at work. I couldn’t think of anything worse that watching a cheerleading documentary. What would be the point? Well, I was so wrong. Cheerleading is one hell of a sport. Those kids put their bodies and minds under so much pressure and through so much stress. I saw a completely different side to this sport that is usually portrayed as being for high school bimbos. PLEASE watch this show. Oh, and Jerry has my heart, what a guy.


Okay, I know I know. I’m massively late to the party with Orange is the New Black. In my defense, I did watch it when it was first released. I managed 7 episodes of season 1 before I gave up out of senseless boredom. I’m so glad that I’ve given it another chance as I’m now really enjoying it and speeding into season 4.


Next time…

More Agatha Christie. Hopefully another 5 or 6 in March. I’d also like to attempt to read the rest of the Truly Devious series by Maureen Johnson as I’ve currently only read book #1.
