February 2022 TBR

January dragged as ever. It always seems to have twice as many days as other months. But it is getting lighter which is good. Everyone in my family had covid in January and I somehow avoided it.

    Ooh, I have No One Round Here Reads Tolstoy, too! And I have the first Ruth Pavey but haven’t got to it yet. I also have the Rebanks, bought in December. Happy reading!

      I am looking forward to it. I liked the first Pavey and have been meaning to read this for ages!
