Spell the Month in Books – February 2023

My inspiration for my Spell the Month in Books posts came from Reviews from the Stacks, where they host a monthly linkup on the second Saturday of every month. Although I don’t follow their timeline of posting or really join any linkup, I believe in giving credit where credit is due. I saw several different bloggers participating and that led me to their posts.

As I was putting this list of books together, I realized that 4 of the books I had chosen fall under the scope of HarperCollins. It’s not like I didn’t have other books to use for those particular letters, so in support of the striking workers, I swapped them out. I saved them for later, though.

January had been busy. My birthday is in January as is my youngest son’s. I also had a bunch of doctor appointments, including an MRI (which I was deathly afraid of but got through with some helpful relaxation pills) and other assorted tests. But we made it through and we’re on to the shortest month of the year. Where I’ll have more tests and hopefully some answers and plans.

Without preplanning it, I ended up with a Van Gogh-themed birthday. I had remarked on seeing people with their Van Gogh Starry Night Lego sets and my husband took note and got it for me. I had also made mention at some point that I was interested in going to the Van Gogh exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts but knew my husband would be bored. My youngest and family got me tickets and my son took me on a Saturday morning. Griffin has always been my kid who would hang by me to read the plaques and really take things in while my husband and oldest would go through a place and wait patiently for us at the end. He also took me out to lunch and then over to a patisserie for dessert. It was a lovely day.

Let’s get on with the books. If I have a review for the book, the title will be clickable. There is only one without a review. Also, I usually try not to use more than one book by the same author in these posts and didn’t realize until I was putting everything together that when switching out titles I added one from an author I was already using. At least it’s not the same series!
