February 2023 Reading List – 2 Books

February 2023 Reading List – Which books are worth the read and which should you skip?

One of my 2023 goals is to read 50 books this year. Yes, it’s the same as last year and, yes, that’s okay. You can review a list of all the books I rate 5 stars in 2022.

How High We Go in the Dark by Sequoia Nagamatsu

1. How High We Go in the Dark by Sequoia Nagamatsu

Category: Science Fiction

Beginning in 2030, a grieving archeologist arrives in the Arctic Circle to continue the work of his recently deceased daughter at the Batagaika crater, where researchers are studying long-buried secrets now revealed in melting permafrost, including the perfectly preserved remains of a girl who appears to have died of an ancient virus.

Once unleashed, the Arctic Plague will reshape life on earth for generations to come, quickly traversing the globe, forcing humanity to devise a myriad of moving and inventive ways to embrace possibility in the face of tragedy.

I thought this book was beautifully written. It kind of gave me an eerie vibe along the lines of Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel – which I read last October.



The Maid by Nita Prose

2. The Maid by Nita Prose

Category: Mystery

Since Gran died a few months ago, twenty-five-year-old Molly has been navigating life’s complexities all by herself. No matter–she throws herself with gusto into her work as a hotel maid. Her unique character, along with her obsessive love of cleaning and proper etiquette, make her an ideal fit for the job. She delights in donning her crisp uniform each morning, stocking her cart with miniature soaps and bottles, and returning guest rooms at the Regency Grand Hotel to a state of perfection.

But Molly’s orderly life is upended the day she enters the suite of the infamous and wealthy Charles Black, only to find it in a state of disarray and Mr. Black himself dead in his bed.

I didn’t really like the main character because of her awkwardness. I’ve never met someone who is so not in tune with the world around them that I had a hard time believing the character.
