February 2018: #WrapUp

I’ve read some good books this month but, man, am I happy to see the end of February. It was such a busy month for me and I had very limited reading time; so I’m happy that I still managed 7 books. 5 of the books were mentioned in my planned TBR, I think I’m finally getting the hang of this whole planned reads thing. I didn’t get to the books I was hoping to squeeze in or manage to read a non-fiction book but one has essays to write. Anyway, let’s take a look at all the bookish activity that took place on the blog this month.

The Books:

The standout book of the month was:

Into the Black Nowhere - Meg Gardiner

Into the Black Nowhere by Meg Gardiner

Lullaby - Leila Slimani

The baby is dead. It only took a few seconds.

When Myriam, a French-Moroccan lawyer, decides to return to work after having children, she and her husband look for the perfect caretaker for their two young children. They never dreamed they would find Louise: a quiet, polite and devoted woman who sings to their children, cleans the family’s chic apartment in Paris’s upscale tenth arrondissement, stays late without complaint and is able to host enviable birthday parties.

The couple and nanny become more dependent on each other. But as jealousy, resentment and suspicions increase, Myriam and Paul’s idyllic tableau is shattered…
