It’s February and I’m so excited to spend another month reading! These are the eight books on my TBR pile for February:
Sunflowers in February – Phyllida Shrimpton
The title demands that it be read this month! It’s been on my shelf for five months, waiting for February to come around. The bright cover and the fact that sunflowers are my favourite flower, are the first reasons I pulled this off the Dymocks shelf. After reading the blurb, I was sold.
A room of one’s own – Virginia Woolf
This title has also been sitting on my bookshelf for quite some time. I often pick it up before putting it back down in pursuit of a fun YA read. So, this month, I am determined to pick it up and not put it back down till I’ve read it!
The sun is also a star – Nicola Yoon
After reading Everything, everything by Yoon, I was in love. Yoon’s writing is captivating and beautiful. I’ve heard such good things about TSIAAS and can’t wait to read it.
Emergency contact – Mary H.K. Choi
‘When Sam and Penny cross paths, it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness.’ The blurb made me incredibly excited to crack this one open! But what captured me most is the cover – the black silhouettes against the pale pink and the gold-foiled title. Plus, it was on sale at Dymocks – how could I say no?
Girl defective – Simmone Howell
I have to include at least one Aussie YA author this month. I’ve only read Take three girlswhich is a collaboration between Simmone Howell, Cath Crowley and Fiona Wood. I’m excited to finally read something that is just hers! And the blurb is incredible! ‘This is the story of a wild girl and a ghost girl; a boy who knew nothing and a boy who thought he knew everything. And it’s about life and death and grief and romance. All the good stuff.’
Trickster’s queen – Tamora Pierce
Tamora Pierce is one of my favourite authors from my teenage years. Her work is feminist and exciting, full of magic and badass females. This is the sequel to Trickster’s choice and I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
Fire with fire – Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivien
The sequel to Burn for Burn. I just received this in the mail yesterday and I’m itching to know what happens as Burn for Burn ended on such a cliff-hanger! I’ve been stalking my mailbox for my package for weeks!
Begin, End, Begin – Multiple authors
This has been on my TBR list for quite some time, but it only just arrived in the mail yesterday (I ordered it before Christmas). The contributing authors to this anthology is the obvious reason I can’t wait to read it!
What’s on your TBR pile for this month? Have you read any of these titles? What did you think? Let me know in the comments.
