I usually don’t post tbrs, because I’m a mood reader, but in January I discovered that I can actually stick to them and since I signed up for a bunch of challenges and I’m participating in readathons and I made tbrs of books I needed to read in 2019, I think I’ll start making monthly tbrs. So here are the books I’m hoping to read in February, I’m being VERY ambitious, but I hope to get to all of them!
This is the prompt for February from the Goodreads group, Devour Your TBR, which is run by Destiny @ Howling Library and Kathy @ Books and Munches. You don’t have to be part of the Goodreads group to participate, just check out Kathy’s post. This month, like you can see from the prompt, we are reading fantasy books and this are the ones I’m hoping to get to:
The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty: I have been meaning to read this one for a long time and the sequel just came out, so I think it’s perfect timing.
We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Mejia: One of my most anticipated releases of the year. I’m so excited for a F/F Latinx Fantasy/Dystopia!
The Wicked King by Holly Black: I’m almost half way thorugh this one! It was one of my most anticipated releases of Janaury, but I didn’t manage to actually read it last month.
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo: Another of my most anticipated releases of January that I didn’t get to, I need to catch up!
This readathon is hosted by Chelsea, Julie, Natasha, and Mel, the goal is to read Contemporary books and there are seven challenges that I will be trying to complete. Since it’s Black History Month, I decided to try to choose books with Black main characters and written by Black authors for most of the prompts of this readathon! Here are the ones I ended up choosing:
Read your most recently acquired contemporary novel – On The Come Up by Angie Thomas: Okay, so I haven’t acquired this book yet, but the Contemporaryathon is taking place one week after the release of this book and since I’m buying it as soon as it comes out, this will be my most recently acquired book.
Read a book with plurple (blue or purple) on the cover – Black Enough by Various Authors: This was one of my most anticipated releases of January and I decided to read it in Febuary instead of January, because it fits this prompt perfectly.
Read a diverse contemporary – Piecing Me Together y Renée Watson: I have been meaning to read this book for a long time and it’s finally time to get to it!
Read a dark or taboo contemporary – Sadie by Courtney Summers: This is one of the 2018 releases I want to read in 2019 and it’s also on my 5 star predictions. This was the first book that I thought about when I read this prompt and I have high expectations, so hopefully I’ll love it.
Read a contemporary you meant to read in 2018 but didn’t get to – Dear Martin by Nic Stone: This book was in my 2017 releases I want to read in 2018 and I didn’t get to it, so I feel like it fits this prompt perfectly.
Read a contemporary in a non-traditional format- The Backstagers Vol. 2 by James Tynion IV, Rian Sygh (illustrator): I read an arc of volume 1 a while back and really enjoyed it, so I’m excited to continue on. Here’s my review of volume 1.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë: This is February’s book for Catch Up On Classics, I have been meaning to read it for a while, but I find it really intimidating, so I have been postponing it and now it’s finally time to read it!
The Disasters by M. K. England: I’m the worst, I was supposed to be part of the blog tour for this book in December, but my mental health wasn’t the best when I was supposed to read and review this, so I didn’t get to it. Now, it’s finally time to do it!
Unbroken by Various Authors: I’m reading this one for a blog post I’m writing and I can’t wait for you to see it!
Are You Seeing Me? by Darren Groth: I’m also reading this one for a blog post, which you will see soon!
Are you participating in any of these readathons or challenges? What are you planning to read in February? Are any of these books on your tbr? Have you read any of them?
