Preface: Starting with February, instead of just compiling covers for books releasing for the month, I’ve decided to curate my monthly releases posts by starting with those books that I need to read for review purposes, followed by those that I’m excited to see release, and finishing with some other titles I’m hoping to read during the month. They might be longish posts, but hopefully informative!
I have two physical books that I need to read this month. Belle Revolte by Linsey Miller is one that the publisher, Sourcebooks Fire, reached out to me since I worked with them on Linsey’s debut a few years back. And, I requested Heart of Flames by Nicki Pau Preto from Simon & Schuster because I loved the first book last year. I’m excited to read both of these.
With these three, I’m hoping to read and review at least two this month. They are eARCs downloaded from Edelweiss. The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood has already received some fantastic reviews, so I’m hyped up for that one from Tor Books. The Seventh Sun by Lani Forbes from Blackstone Publishing and The Wolf of Oren-Yaro by K.S. Villoso from Orbit are quieter released, but they sound fantastic! Thanks for the publishers for approving my requests.
Magnetic Press had a Read Now button on Nils: The Tree of Life by Jerome Hamon, and I’m a sucker for graphic novels with great art, so I’m hoping to read this one soon. And I was overjoyed to see the audiobook for Upright Women Wanted by Sarah Gailey from Tor.com as one of the February Libro.fm ALC options. Must finish my current audiobook, but this one is up next!
Other Exciting February Releases:
These all look amazing! But I won’t have time to read them all this book, so I’m hoping to squeeze some in later this year.
Other Books on my TBR this month:
Seven Deadly Shadows by Courtney Alameda and Valynne E. Maetani is a January release that I didn’t have time to read, but since I did receive an ARC from HarperTeen, I’m still hoping to read it this month! The Slug Queen Chronicles: Season One by S.O. Thomas is an eARC I received through Book Sirens and so far is pretty interesting. Look for my review later this month since it’s a March release.
My current audiobook read is Cast in Peril by Michelle Sagara from MIRA (previously Harlequin LUNA), which I’m listening to during my Audible Escape trial. I’m extremely behind on this series, but am hoping to catch up some this year. I didn’t quite have time in December to read The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern and my boss would like to see what I think about some of the library aspects, so here’s hoping I can squeeze this Doubleday Books release in this month as well!
What do you think of this format? Let me know if you love it or hate it in the comments!
