February 2024 Reading Wrap-up!

The books I read in February, and what I thought of them!
Christi Hegstad February 29th, 2024

I’m not sure if I was in a reading slump or just preoccupied with other things, but a good part of February involved either not reading much or not particularly loving what I was reading. Fortunately my bookish experience turned around in the last couple of weeks – I finished several books, including two of my favorites, within the last few days of the month!

In total, I read 8 books in February: 4 nonfiction and 4 fiction. My favorite nonfiction of the month was The Art Thief by Michael Finkel, a fascinating and infuriating account of someone who stole a significant amount of art in the 1990s and 2000s – in broad daylight, in plain sight, without violence, during museum operating hours. I really enjoy Finkel’s narrative style and appreciate the amount of research and care he puts into his projects. I felt the same way when I read The Stranger in the Woods by him a few years back.

Other nonfiction I enjoyed this month included Sunshine Girl by Julianna Margulies (one of my favorite actors, and she reads the audiobook), Praying Like Monks, Living Like Fools by Tyler Staton, and Feel-Good Productivity by Ali Abdaal.

Let me know if you’d like me to expand on any of these, or to share my fiction reads as well! In the meantime, what was your favorite book this month?
