February Wrap Up & March TBR

Hello readers!

For my reading purposes, February is always too short! I really don’t have the time to work through a long TBR, but still I’m quite happy with the books I managed to read this month!

February Wrap Up

My planned TBR for this month was (books I actually read were marked in bold:

  1. Illusion by Paula Volsky
  2. Midnight Robber by Nalo Hopkinson
  3. Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart (ongoing)
  4. The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin
  5. The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris
  6. The Unbroken by C. L. Clark
  7. Bestiary by K-Ming Chang
  8. It is Wood, it is Stone by Gabriella Burnham

I also read these ones which were not on my TBR:

  1. Ain’t I a Woman by bell hooks
  2. Make Up Break Up by Lily Menon
  3. The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo
  4. Ring Shout by P. Djèlí Clark
  5. The Luminous Dead by Caitlin Starling (ongoing)
  6. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
  7. The Unseen World by Liz Moore (ongoing)

Which means this month I read:

  • 15 books in total (of which 3 are not finished yet)
  • 8/8 books read out of my TBR (although I am not done with Shuggie Bain yet)
  • All in original English
  • 4 eARCs (27 %), 4 recent releases (also 27%) & 7 backlisted (46%)
  • 1 non-fiction (7%) and 14 fiction books (93%)
  • Also a surprising amount of fantasy books this month, with 7 fantasy books and 1 fantasy-adjacent (Bestiary, which is arguably magical realism)

March TBR

March is a TOUGH month for TBRs, because this is when the Women’s Prize for Fiction Longlist AND the International Booker Prize’s Longlist come out, which is definitely going to mess up my entire planning and my until-now-under-control-TBR. So I will add to this list the books leftover from February plus one that has been on my TBR forever and I know I love the fun Steampunk series and I’m going to love this book, I just need to finally read it!

For this month I’d like to read…

  1. Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart (already started)
  2. The Luminous Dead by Caitlin Starling (already started)
  3. The Unseen World by Liz Moore (already started)
  4. The Custodian of Marvels by Rod Duncan

That’s it! Let’s see how much March will ruin my TBR! Looking forward.
