February TBR

Indiana’s January Wrap Up and February TBR

January was a pretty good month for reading! I finished quite a few books including:

The Power by Naomi Alderman – 4 out of 5 stars. Review to come.
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty – 3.5 out of 5 stars. Review to come.
Radio Free Vermont by Bill McKibben – 5 out of 5 stars
Without You There is No Us by Suki Kim – 4.5 out of stars
Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh – 4 out of 5 stars
A Monster Calls Patrick Ness – 5 out of 5 stars
Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl – 4 out of 5 stars
Winter by Ali Smith – 4.5 out of 5 stars. Team Review to come.   

For February, I’m hoping for just as productive a reading month. I’ve also taken a bit of time off of work, so I’m hoping to squeeze in a few more books to my TBR list than usual. I’ve got a mix of children’s books, including The Dolldrums by Nicholas Gannon and The Wizards of Once by Cressida Cowell, and classics like Villette by Charlotte Bronte and The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien. Although it’s not the first time I’ve read the first in Tolkien’s series, it’ll be the first time I’ve read it alongside Pete (who if you haven’t yet picked up on it, is a serious fantasy fan). Pete and I also plan to read Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire together.  Last, but certainly not least, I’ll be reading Susan Sontag’s Regarding the Pain of Others.

Pete’s January Wrap Up and February TBR

January was a great start to another year of reading—not only did I read a bunch, but I also really enjoyed the books I read!

Tehanu by Ursula K. Le Guin – 2.5 out of 5 stars
Radio Free Vermont by Bill McKibben – 4 out of 5 stars
Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl – 4 out of 5 stars
News of the World by Paulette Jiles – 5 out of 5 stars
Winter by Ali Smith – Review to come
The Fox by Sherwood Smith – Review to come
Saga Volume 8 by Fiona Staples and Brian K. Vaughan – Review to come

February is packed with books I’ve been looking forward to for some time. I’m finally going to read The Lord of the Rings in its entirety, with Indiana helping me along. I couldn’t resist picking up another Paulette Jiles book—I’m going with Enemy Women this time. Indiana and I will be reading Every Heart a Doorway (one of the best book titles I’ve ever heard) by Seanan McGuire, which sounds like a wonderful read. I’m finally going to read Flaubert’s Three Tales, given to me by my grandfather a few years ago. And I’m reading Dave Eggers’s Heroes of the Frontier, which should be fun and adventurous. I’m not going to say that this is the year I tackle my TBR, but I’m going to do the best I can!

  1. So you’ve read Fellowship before, but not all of LOTR? Or just not back to back? Either way, I’m quite jealous (I really want to find time to do another reread)! Easily my favorite books, having started on The Hobbit when I was a kid. The book nerd in me always gets excited when someone else is reading Tolkien. Have fun!

    1. I’ve read the Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring before—So I’m rereading Fellowship and finishing the trilogy, which I should have done a long time ago 🙂 And thanks!
