Today I’m excited to share my February TBR! It took me a while to narrow down my TBR to something more reasonable, though I’m starting to think a nine-book TBR really isn’t that reasonable. My February TBR is a combination of books for blog tours, ARCs that I should have read a while ago, buddy reads, and backlist books. Right now, I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to get to all of the books, but we’ll see what happens.
Calico Thunder Rides Again by T.A. Hernandez – This book was one of the finalists for the 2020 BBNYA awards, and I am reading it for the blog tour hosted by The Write Reads. This book’s premise sounds like a wild ride, and I’m looking forward to reading it closer to the end of the month. I am also using this book for the Red Cover prompt for the TBR Tackle Challenge that I am co-hosting on Instagram.
In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren – This is one of the many past due ARCs haunting my Net Galley queue. I love Christina Lauren, and I meant to read this book in December, but I was in a bit of a reading slump, and I didn’t get around to it. It feels a bit weird picking up a holiday book in February, but it’s Groundhog Day-inspired, making it fitting for February. I am also using this book for the Romance prompt for the TBR Tackle Challenge that I am co-hosting on Instagram.
Verona Comics by Jennifer Dugan – This is one of the backlist books that I’m hoping to check off my TBR this month. Verona Comics was one of my more anticipated 2020 releases, but I kept putting it off and still haven’t read it yet. This book is my pick for the People on the Cover prompt for the TBR Tackle Challenge.
One of the Good Ones by Maika and Maritza Moulite – This is another past-due ARC that I’m hoping to check off of my TBR in February. This book was released at the beginning of January, and I’ve heard a lot of good things about it so far. This book is my pick for the Black Author prompt of the TBR Tackle Challenge.
The Last Garden in England by Julia Kelly – This is the third past due ARC that I want to read in February. This book is historical fiction, and it looks like it goes back and forth between three different periods. This book is my pick for the Starts with “The” prompt for the TBR Tackle Challenge.
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas – This is the book that I’m most excited to read in February. I’m buddy reading this book with part of the TWR gang, and I can’t wait to start reading. I’ve heard so many good things about this book. The premise sounds fantastic, and chatting about the book of the month with the TWR gang is usually the highlight of my week.
Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie – This book is a reread for me and another buddy read with some of the TWR gang. After reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and Murder on the Orient Express in January, some of the TWR gang decided to tackle all of the Poirot books. I wasn’t planning on reading this one, but I realized that the only thing I remember about this book is that there is a murder and takes place on the links, so I think a reread is needed.
Aether Ones by Wendi Coffman-Porter – This book is for a blog tour hosted by The Write Reads. I don’t know much about this book, but I know that it’s a sci-fi and mystery mix, which sounds like a fun combination. My stop on the tour is near the end of the month, so I probably won’t be picking this book up until the second half of the month.
Midnight Riot (aka Rivers of London) by Ben Aaronovitch – This book is another buddy read with part of the TWR gang. This is the first book in an urban fantasy mystery series, and I am so excited to read it. Everything about this series sounds fantastic, and I can’t wait to meet Peter Grant.
