TBR February Books


Which basically means that I have a new list of books to read for the month. Since I read only five books last month, right now I have six books on the list, but that could change. It's also almost the time for midterms, so we'll see how everything plays out. 

The Syrena Legacy by Anna Banks



I just finished the book Of Poseidon, and my review for it is here. Although it was not the best read, I've always been fascinated by mermaids and mythology, so I'm probably going to continue with the series. I might not read all of these three books, but we will see.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor



I have already read the Daughter of Smoke & Bone a year ago, and still remember most of the details. Also the actual third book in the series should be coming out soon, so I'm hoping I read all of them at once. I won't read the first one again, because I don't have time at the moment. 

Abhorsen by Garth Nix



I'm really excited for this series, because I'm reading the first one, Sabriel, right now, and it's a great fantasy adventure series, kind of like the Alanna series, Song of the Lioness, but better. Though to be honest, I'm not a fan of the artwork on the first book, which is really weird because I also hate the cover of the first book in the Alanna series. 




And here's my book club book for the month! By the author who wrote Kite Runner, I'm looking forward to reading And the Mountains Echoed (although I never read the Kite Runner).

And there's also Hollow City, the second book of the series Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, the one YA series I have actually kept up with (I don't care that there's only two books out now).

I also really want to read Cinder, the first book of the Lunar Chronicles, because I've heard so many good things about it. A futuristic, modern fairy tale setting? What more could there be? 


And that's it from me. What books are you looking forward to reading to this month?

  1. Great list! Let me know how reading Sabriel goes because I was thinking of adding that book to my TBR pile as well.
    I'm looking forward to finishing The Wise Man's Fear (I've taken way too long reading it) at the moment. :)

    1. Sabriel went really well, I just finished it two days ago. It's definitely more of an adventure and fantasy series than I'm used to. But it doesn't overwhelm you with information, which is a good thing!

      Good luck on finishing The Wise Man's Fear! I just looked it up and it's almost 1000 pages! Wow.

  3. AHHHH DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE! I always go crazy whenever I see the covers of the books of that series, they are all personal favorites of mine (I haven't read the Novella yet, but I really need to!) Cinder is also a favorite and you should be glad you're starting the series now, because you'll need the third ASAP !. (it's coming put in a few days)

  4. Hi Val! I came across your blog through goodreads, so I figured to stop by and say hello! I am now following your blog :)

    I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. April can't come soon enough which is when the 3rd book comes out. I also have Cinder sitting on my book shelf, but just haven't had the time to read it.

    Anyway, feel free to stop by my blog sometime. I am always looking for new blogger buddies to chat with and new followers :)

    Best Wishes,
    Mia @ The Muses Circle
