Given that last month’s TBR was actually pretty successful (I read seven of the chosen eleven books, plus a further four, and even reviewed four of them – see my Wrap-Up for details), I decided to have another crack at it.
This February, I am planning to read (but probably won’t):
This Is How You Lose The Time War by Amar El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
Gideon the Ninth by Tamsin Muir
The Toll (Arc of a Scythe #3) by Neal Shusterman
The To-Do List and Other Debacles by Amy Jones
The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White
Maybe You Should Talk To Someone by Lori Gottlieb
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
War Doctor by David Nott
I should probably have also included The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith, but it slipped my mind because I’d already finished it by the time I was pulling books together for a photograph! It’s due out on 11 February 2020 and I received a copy from the publisher, so expect to see my review tomorrow or the day after.
I’ve actually also finished The To-Do List and Other Debacles, which I really, really enjoyed, so hopefully a review of that will follow soon. Hark at me, with all these reviews!
The book I’m probably most looking forward to is The Toll, although I loved Scythe and Thunderhead so much that I’m actually quite reticent about starting this one. What if it’s not as good and it makes me sad!? Otherwise, the book I’m most looking forward to without any reservations is Gideon the Ninth. I’ve heard so many wonderful things and I really love (fictional!) necromancy!
I’ve already gone off-piste slightly and I’m now rereading Reserved for the Cat for the 900th time instead of touching anything from this pile, but that’s okay. I’m not feeling too well and it’s one of my ultimate comfort reads. There’s time enough for TBR books later.
What are your reading plans for this month? Which of these books should I pick up next?
