You probably know by now that I’m a total mood TBR type of person, but there are a few books I do want to make a point to read in February. This month’s TBR focuses on a few backlist titles I finally borrowed from the library, books for review, and potentially one of my all-time most anticipated fantasy releases. As always, I plan on hopefully being able to read more than just the books on this list. I didn’t include them on the *official* list because I don’t have my own physical copies yet, but I’m also hoping to get to You Have a Match by Emma Lord – waiting for it to come in from the library – & The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon – I’m planning on buying a copy this month.
If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha – If I Had Your Face is the Bad on Paper Podcast book club pick for February. I read at least half of their book club picks in 2020 and I’m always going back to the old book club picks, so I’m excited to join in on the February read. I decided not to read Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic with them in January because I wasn’t particularly in the mood for it then, but If I Had Your Face sounds like such an intriguing read. The book follows four young women in Seoul, Korea and shines light on the high beauty standards there.
Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes – Based on my 2021 reading goals, I’m going to try to read at least 1 backlist contemporary romance each month. This month I went with Evvie Drake Start Overs because I’ve heard that this is such a heartfelt and soothing read. As a huge fan of sports mixed in romance (hello Bromance Book Club), I’m also interested in the professional baseball player love interest.
Wings of Ebony by J. Elle – I was sent Wings of Ebony unsolicited for review a few weeks ago. After reading not too much fantasy in 2020, I’m looking forward to diving into this YA read about a Black teen who discovers she is half-god, half-human.
Infinite Country by Patricia Engel – Infinite Country is another read on my to-read for review TBR, but I am SO excited to dive into after Grace from The Stripe raved about this one on her Instagram last week. The book’s follows a Columbian family’s intense challenges as they attempt to immigrate to America.
Bachelor Nation: Inside the World of America’s Favorite Guilty Pleasure by Amy Kaufman – I actually started reading Bachelor Nation in January, but I put it down around the time I moved back to school and was trying to finish some books for review. This is my non-fiction book pick for January and February, as part of my 2021 reading goals for non-ficition.
A Court of Frost & Starlight (ACOTAR #3.5) by Sarah J. Maas – Since I’ve read the original A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy twice already, I decided to just reread the novella that bridges the Feyre & Rhysand and Nesta and Cassian story arcs, A Court of Frost & Starlight. I think rereading the novella will be a nice way to reacquaint myself with the ACOTAR world, the ending of A Court of War & Ruin, and where we leave off Nesta and Cassian.
A Court of Silver Flames (ACOTAR #4) by Sarah J. Maas – I definitely plan on going to the bookstore during release week of A Court of Silver Flames. As much as I tell myself that I should wait until March during spring break to dive into one of my most anticipated books of the year, I know there’s a 90% chance I’ll shove everything aside to devour this one up (even at 700+ pages).
