If I haven’t proven it by now, I’ve got to admit that I’m not very good at following my TBRs. That being said, here are the books I hope to get to in February. There are a couple here that I didn’t get to in January and a couple new reads that I plan on getting to this month. Without rambling on too much, here are the books that I plan on reading in February 2020:
**For anyone who’s discovered my TBR system for the first time, I’ve organized the books on my TBR by Physical Books, AudioBooks, and eBooks.**
Total Books: 7
- On The Come Up by Angie Thomas
- Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton (Heart of Thorns, Book 1)
- Small Bones by Vicki Grant (Secrets)
- Flashback by Shannon Messenger (Keeper of the Lost Cities, Book 7)
- War of the Networks by Katie Cross (Networks, Book 4)
- Soulless at Sunset by Deanna Chase (Last Witch Standing, Book 1)
- Don’t Cheat Me by Jackie May (Nora Jacobs, Book 2)
On The Come Up by Angie Thomas: All Bri wants to be is one of the greatest rappers of all time but she’ll settle for making it out of her neighbourhood one day. As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died before he hit big, Bri knows she’s got huge shoes to fill. Now that her mother’s unexpectedly lost her job, Bri’s struggles in life have gotten that much harder. Music no longer becomes a fantasy – it’s something Bri must succeed at in order to help provide for her family.
Okay, this is going to be the final month (in a row) that I place this book on the top of my TBR. I know, I know – I’ve been saying that for a year now. However, this is the first physical book I plan on reading this month. Here’s hoping that’ll spur me into finishing this read!
Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton: 17 year old Mia Rose has pledge her life to hunting Gwyrach, the same demons that killed her mother. When her dad pledges her marriage to the prince, she’s forbidden from taking up her knife again. She instead finds herself being forced into silk gowns. After the wedding goes horribly wrong does she realize she has the same magic that she’s sworn to destroy.
This is the second physical book I hope to get read this month. While lately I haven’t had a lot of time to sit down and read physical books, my goal is to get at least two done this month. As I’ve been meaning to read this book for quite some time now, I’m hoping this is the month I get to do it.
Small Bones by Vicki Grant: Dot has always had big dreams, but these dreams have had to be put on hold while she searches for the truth about her parents. She gets a job as a seamstress in rural Ontario and falls hard for Eddie, a charming local boy that is equal parts helpful and distracting when it comes to her investigation.
I said I wanted to continue with the Secrets series and now’s my chance. I loved my read through of The Unquiet Past and now’s the perfect time to pick the series back up. The premise of the series intrigues me – the seven oldest from the home for girls get sent on a mission to discover their past after their home burns down. I can’t wait to see what the past has in store for Dot’s future.
Flashback by Shannon Messenger: Sophie’s having a harder time than ever figuring out what – and whom – to believe. When the Neverseen prove that Sophie is far more vulnerable than she ever imagined, the solution involves one of the biggest risks Sophie and her friends have taken to date.
The third physical book I hope to read this month, I plan on having this as my bonus physical book for the month. That is, once I’ve read the other two I’m giving myself permission to hole up somewhere for a couple hours and dive back into this world that I’ve come to both love and dread. Such an amazing story and gripping read, I’m always worried about what Messenger is going to do to the characters I love.
War of the Networks by Katie Cross: In the midst of war and with the Central Network on the brink of destruction, Bianca is even more determined than ever to defeat Mabel’s Almorran magic. When Mabel kidnaps her, taking her into the heart of the Western Network, Bianca finds that Mabel is even more dangerous than she’s ever been before.
I need to finish this series. I’ve been meaning to for a while now and I’m not sure why I’ve put it off for so long. So: February seems like the perfect month to get this series read!
Soulless at Sunset by Deanna Chase: Shifters are moving in to New Orleans and vampires are being picked off in record numbers. Vampire hunter Phoebe Kilsen finds herself in the middle of the war when her best friend goes missing along with the consort of the most powerful vampire in the city. Phoebe must put everything on the line by teaming up with the one vampire she’s never trusted – and she’s not even sure she’ll make it out alive.
I have to admit, I don’t know much about this novel other than it sounds like an interesting read to me. I don’t think I’ve read anything by Chase yet, so here’s hoping I find a new author I adore.
Don’t Cheat Me by Jackie May: Nora’s finally settling into her new life as the underworld’s token human. Thanks to her unique psychic abilities, she’s garnered quite the reputation around Detroit. When the alpha of a local werewolf pack asks for her help, Nora finds she can’t say no. She can’t quite shake her old vampire problem, either. On top of all that, Nora’s succubus friend, Cecile, believes that all Nora needs is an underworld coming out party.
I absolutely adored my read through of Don’t Rush Me and I can’t wait to continue on with the series. I didn’t get to any AudioBooks in January, so I’m hoping that by putting 1 on my TBR for February I’ll get something read.
While my goal is to read a minimum of 8 books for the month, I figure I’d better give myself some wiggle room. What books are you looking forward to picking up this month? Are there any new releases that you’re looking forward to getting your hands on? Or are you the kind of person that’s going to let the mood lead you to whatever books you end up reading?
