February 2017 | TBR

It’s February, the month of love, and these are the books I’m planning to read in this very short month:

First up, I’m planning to re-read two books: The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow and The Mystery of the Jewelled Moth, in preparation for the third book in the series, The Painted Dragon, which, according to Amazon, is winging its way to me on the 9th of Feb. This series is FABULOUS–it’s basically the intersection of my interests: kidlit, mysteries & Edwardian London!

Then I am planning to read Wing Jones by Katherine Webber. I’ve had my eye on this book for aggeesss, and I am really really excited to read it. ALSO: this book is diverse, which makes me want to read it even more.

The fourth book I’m planning to read is The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson. This is a middle grade mystery, and the main character has obsessive-compulsive disorder. Again, this book sounds FAB, and I’m really excited to read.

Then I am planning to read The Astounding Broccoli Boy by Frank Cottrell Boyce. This is about a boy who turns the same shade of green as a broccoli! I’ve never read any of Frank Cottrell Boyce’s books, and thought this would be a great place to start–it looks like a funny read!

Then I’m going to read my classic choice of the month, and no surprise here, it’s another Agatha Christie book. This time I’m reading The Mystery of the Blue Train, another Hercule Poirot novel. Fingers crossed I enjoy it as much as I did the last one!

Finally, I know I said last month that I wanted to read a non-fiction book every month and I am planning to read one in February–however, depending on how busy I get with my Masters reading, it might be a pre-dissertation research read on the suffragettes OR (hopefully) a autobiography of Lauren Bacall!

What are you planning to read in February?

One thought on “February 2017 | TBR

  1. Just finished “If I Were Your Girl” by Meredith Russo. Am now reading “The Girl Who Drank the Moon” by Kelly Barnhill. Am looking forward to reading “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas and “Hillbilly Elegy” by J. D. Vance. I might dive into “The Name of the Wind” by Patrick Rothfuss, which I meant to read in January.

    Other than that, I’ll probably just find books as they are recommended or catch my eye.
