February has dawned, damp and grey, so here’s my TBR list to help cheer you up. It includes this month’s book for my British Books Challenge (BBC) and the book selected by my Book Club along with some others from my shelf & Kindle backlog!
Books that count toward my BBC will be highlighted in BLUE and will be fully reviewed later in the month as part of the challenge and the Book Club book will be highlighted in GREEN and will feature in my Book Club review post in early March after our meeting.
In February I am planning to read:
Revenger by Alastair Reynolds – I read and mini-reviewed the sampler for this after I picked it up in YALC and was kindly sent the full book to review afterwards. I am looking forward to picking up where I left off as it has been a while since I went on a really a good space adventure.
The Grimm Legacy by Polly Schulman – February’s Book Club read is a YA based on the Grimm Fairy Tales which we all thought sounded like good fun. And also a lighter read than last month’s incredible but difficult book.
The Tale Of Oat Cake Crag by Susan Wittig Albert – The second February choice of our Book Club as we all wanted to read it as well!! I’m looking forward to this Beatrix Potter mystery adventure, ti sounds like good fun.
Waylaid by Kim Harrison – A cross-over novella between my favourite author’s two big series featuring my very favourite book characters of all time? Ain’t no way I was missing this one!!
Contagion by Teri Terry – I didn’t manage to pick this up in January as the Book Club read demanded my full attention (and a substantial amount of time!) so it is now a February read instead.
The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams by Stephen King (Pgs 51-92) – I enjoyed last month’s dip into this collection (and by enjoyed I mean, I got suitably freaked out and enjoyed the adrenaline rush) so I hope this month’s is just as good.
I have also started reading Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets (Illustrated Edition) by J. K. Rowling with the kids, because I couldn’t hold out any longer. I’m enjoying re-reading them too much!
If I somehow manage to cover all of that lot in the short month, then the next on my list to pick up is Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey which Liberty has lent to me along with a glowing recommendation.
What are you reading this month?
(Note: Stephen King’s short story collection, The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams, is on my TBR every month this year as I have divided it up so I will be reading a story or two (or three) from it each month.)
