February Reads: Where's the Romance?!

I just went through what I was planning on reading this month and realized I don't have any novels on tap that celebrate smoochy love. Yikes! I do have a few on hand, so I may have to slip one onto my reading list this month. 

I'm still going full speed on my goal to read from my backlist (also known as the stacks on the floor and my bookcases). Now that I've decluttered my basement stash of books, I will start on my bookcases. I'd say about 75% of the books on my bookcases are books I haven't read, so I have plenty of motivation. It's much harder to let these go, since I really do want to read them--and the second I do that, I will let them go. I have to make room for all the books in my future!

February's reads are a mix of titles I've been asked to review, a title for a book group, and one that I've been wanting to read for a few months. I'll also read other titles as they pop up. Right now I'm working on another cozy mystery.  

Here's what I'll be reading this month:

Reading group selection-YA novel

A novel about two sisters; one with a mental illness. Publisher review. 

Okay, it's been a few months since I got this as a Christmas present. Time to read it! Magical, mystical storytelling. 

A psychological thriller about an executive and her personal assistant. A publisher review.

Happy reading everyone!

  1. It looks like you have some good reading ahead; I am reading a book that might qualify as a smoochy Valentines read, don't know yet, "Foreign Affairs" by Alison Lurie.
