February TBR

I’m still not really over the fact that it’s already 2020! That’s just crazy and yet here we are already in February!

Finish what I started

 

The Phantom of the Opera

The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux

One of my goals this year is, again, to read some more classics and I am soon reading a retelling of this story so I thought it would be cool to read the original material first. And I have a new app, Serial Reader, that has classics on there and they give you one section each day and I think this is the perfect way for me to read this.

 


 

The Lies of Locke Lamora
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

I actually got the German version for review and I’m so damn excited for this. For one because my best friend and I are kind of buddy reading this unintentionally. And secondly, because this is the epitome of a Slytherin book I’ve been told. And from what I already read (yes, I started this in December) I can totally see why people say that. Locke is such a Slytherin and I love it!

 


I have a couple of other books I’m currently reading. But they aren’t really a priority this month. I have quite a few books that are review copies etc that some other ones have to take a back seat for this month.


Sequels (continue or finish a series)

All the Wandering Light
All the Wandering Lights by Heather Fawcett

I loved Even the Darkest Stars back when I read it. And I still think about it to this day! The atmosphere was just so amazing and I was with the characters exploring the world and climbing that mountain. Actually, I hope to reread Even the Darkest Stars and then read this one, both for Polarthon (LINK)

I’m really looking forward to finding out how this series ends!


Review Copies / ARCs

The Wolf of Oren-Yaro
The Wolf of Oren-Yaro by K.S. Villoso

I’ve started this a few days ago and I was a fan from the very first sentence. I’m only about 8% in but I can tell it’s gonna be amazing! Love the writing style! And it’s even better that I have absolutely no clue what’s gonna happen next!
(But whyyyy are the chapters so looong?)

You can expect my review on February 11th as I’m part of the Blog Tour hosted by Shealea!

 

Rise of Gaia

Rise of Gaia by Kristin Ward

This is also a book I got for the Blog Tour and I’m really looking forward to starting it (today!). I’ve already read another of her books and she really managed to fascinate me with her science woven into the story. Can’t wait what she wrote this time.

 

 


 

R.I.P.
The Absolution / R.I.P.

You can’t imagine how excited I’m for this one and how thankful that I can review this series. It’s the third book in the new series by Yrsa Sigurdardóttir and I loved both of the other books. And I actually got the hardback for this one?? I actually squeaked when I opened the package because I did not expect that!

Anyhow, if I can I really want to read it this month! It’s the right season for it.


Backlist

The Reluctant Queen
The Reluctant Queen by Sarah Beth Durst

I absolutely adored the first book in this series about a hardworking girl who believes in team play and wild elemental spirits and just … loved it! (Review)
It’s been long overdue that I continue the series! Can’t believe I haven’t yet!!

And as an added incentive I also got a review copy for book 3 (in german) so it would be great if I could get to it this month.

 


Genre Goals

This just means that I should pick a book that’s in one of my genres I want to try to read more of (Sci-Fi, Historical Fiction, Contemporary, Thrillers/Crime/Mystery & Classics)

Limited WishLimited Wish by Mark Lawrence

Mark Lawrence quickly became one of my all-time favourite authors and I want to read everything he writes. He even got me to read SciFi which isn’t something I usually gravitate towards. But One Word Kill blew me away! (Review) and I really want to find out what happens with Nick next.

This series is so incredibly interesting. Love how science-y it is. love the take on time travel and the characters are all so damn lovable!

 


Got as a Gift

Der Medicus

Der Medicus by Noah Gordon

My best friend got this for me yeeeeaaars ago and I still haven’t read it … I’m baaad!
But! Maybe I’ll finally remedy that this month. This book is huge but I also have a little bit of free time so maybe it will happen. And it will also tick off one of my genre goals so it’s a double win!

Wish me luck! I’ve heard a lot of good things so I’m hoping I’ll love it as well!

 


And because we get an extra day in February this year, which I plan on spending only reading, let me put in one more book ^^

The Winner's Crime

 

As always, I think I’ve gone a bit overboard with my reading plans … but I have hope so maybe I’ll actually manage it 😅
What are your plans this month? Tell me in the comments and/or link your TBR 🖤
