Excited for February? I had a great reading month in January and I’m worried I won’t be able to keep reading as much in February which is sad because I’ve been loving getting to read as much.
I am back to full time Uni work so I don’t want to be too ambitious with my TBR but also enough that it pushes me to read more. I’m not going to put down the books that I have to read for my uni course because a lot of it is poetry and doesn’t take long to read. Any way. enough rambles from me, you just want to know what I plan to read!
A Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J. Maas. I started reading these the other day and I am already in love. The characterisation is just…no words, perfection. Amazing.
Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months.
So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
The Lock In by Phoebe Luckhurst. I was gifted this on Netgalley the other day and it sounds amazing so I really want to get to this. There isn’t a cover released for this yet but I’m sure it will be amazing once they release it.
Meet housemates Ellen, Alexa and Jack. They’re broke. They’re lonely. They’re hungover. And things are about to go from bad to worse . . .

Will these housemates ever get out of this attic? Will they survive the wrath of Elias The Evil Landlord? And will Jack please stop live-tweeting this whole fiasco?
Welcome to The Lock In.
This is a hilarious story of housemates and hangovers and friendship and dating as four twenty-somethings discover what The Worst morning-after-the-night-before really looks like . . .
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh has been top of my Amazon to buy list now for months and I finally bought it in January so now it’s shot straight to the top of my To Read pile. I don’t own the second in the series yet as I’m waiting for it to come out in paperback form so reading this might kill me with a cliffhanger but I don’t care I’ve been hyped about this for too long to put it off any longer.
In 1872, New Orleans is a city ruled by the dead. But to seventeen-year-old Celine Rousseau, New Orleans provides her a refuge after she’s forced to flee her life as a dressmaker in Paris. Taken in by the sisters of the Ursuline convent along with six other girls, Celine quickly becomes enamored with the vibrant city from the music to the food to the soirées and—especially—to the danger. She soon becomes embroiled in the city’s glitzy underworld, known as La Cour des Lions, after catching the eye of the group’s leader, the enigmatic Sébastien Saint Germain. When the body of one of the girls from the convent is found in the lair of La Cour des Lions, Celine battles her attraction to him and suspicions about Sébastien’s guilt along with the shame of her own horrible secret. When more bodies are discovered, each crime more gruesome than the last, Celine and New Orleans become gripped by the terror of a serial killer on the loose—one Celine is sure has set her in his sights . . . and who may even be the young man who has stolen her heart. As the murders continue to go unsolved, Celine takes matters into her own hands and soon uncovers something even more shocking: an age-old feud from the darkest creatures of the underworld reveals a truth about Celine she always suspected simmered just beneath the surface.
The Matched Series by Ally Condie. I am counting this as a continued series because I have technically started reading this multiple times but never made it past the 50 page mark. This time I will though. I love the concept and I always hear great things so I am taking advantage of my current book binge to try and get into it because I think once I start I won’t be able to put it down.
In the Society, officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s hardly any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one…until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.
That’s my TBR for this month, It’s only one book shorter than my ambitious one from last month and I excelled against that so hopefully this is the same. Anyway, I hope you have a great day and month ahead! ❤ Now for today’s Questions…
