Mark the time and date, bookworms. This may never happen again.
As many of you know, I don’t normally write TBR posts (unless I’m doing some sort of challenge or readathon). I’m a moody person, and naturally, that makes me a mood reader. I pick books up as I feel like reading them, and giving myself a list only makes me less inclined to stick to it.
So why, then, am I posting a February TBR? Well, I’ve been reciting a list of books for this month in my head. And no matter how many times I repeat it, it rarely changes. So it looks like I have a mental TBR for February. Let’s hope writing it down doesn’t destroy it!
This list has more books than I’m likely to get to, but these are some options for what I’ll read this month. It might not be all of them, but definitely some!
1. Vicious by V.E. Schwab
I’m about halfway through Vicious already, though I’d get through it faster if I wasn’t busy kicking myself for never having read V.E. Schwab before. This book is unputdownable. That’s a word now.
2. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
I also recently started Truthwitch, though I haven’t had time to journey too far into it. I’ll probably start reading it again once Vicious is over…you know, unless something else pops up and distracts me.
3. Windwitch by Susan Dennard
This choice is contingent on just how much I enjoy Truthwitch. If I’m thinking “meh” by the end of the first book, I’ll probably let the second one sit for a while. We’ll see. Hoping I want to marathon this series!
4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
I’ve still yet to complete my Harry Potter re-read. Let’s be honest, I’m stalling having to watch all my favorite characters snuff it. Again. But I’ll brace myself and try to start this in February. It’s not like any Harry Potter book takes me long to read.
5. City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
Moving right along with re-reads, my monthly Shadowhunter re-read for February is City of Ashes. I don’t remember a whole lot about the second Mortal Instruments book, so it should be interesting to see the sequence of events play out. Especially after my little coughoverlong Shadowhunters binge on Saturday…
6. Fresh Ink: An Anthology by Lamar Giles
I’m about 25% of the way through my digital ARC of Fresh Ink, and I think it has some important and powerful messages to share with young readers. I definitely want to finish this in February, though the fact that the stories are all contemporaries is prolonging my reading experience. I’m just not a contemporary person.
7. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I promised I would at least start this series in February, and I’m sticking to it! It’s time to find out what all this hype is about.
8. To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
This is another digital ARC I’ve been wanting to get to, and since the book releases in March, I’d better get on that! This one sounds a whole lot like a Little Mermaid retelling, and I’m 100% here for it.
And that’s all for February! Well, maybe not. But those are all the books I’m consciously planning on reading. Which books are you trying to get to this month? Let me know in the comments below!
