Looking Ahead… February Releases
There are so many great books coming out in February it is insane! I found myself with more review copies for February than any other month. I am going to have to catch up on all of my review copies! Are you looking forward to any of these titles or any other February release? Make sure to comment below or write your own post! Just make sure to tag me!
This is a book that I have really wanted ever since I saw it. Historical fiction meets fantasy in this novel set in France where the main character plans a to steal from Louis XVI and Marie Antionette. I have always wanted to read a good story about Marie Antionette, and this story also combines magic and thievery, could it be any MORE up my alley?
A historical fiction novel about a team hunting for Nazi war criminals after WWII. I have been meaning to read this one for a while, but haven’t been in the mood for historical fiction.
A family is upended as the parents are both arrested. This book is about the struggles of the ones left behind while their parents go through trial. It’s hard to tell what this book is about as a whole, but the reviews so far are great.
A middle grade fantasy about two twin sisters. I have no idea how I stumbled upon a copy of this, but I’ve been saying for a long time that I have been meaning to read more middle grade fiction. I think I will read this after a slow paced or intricate novel. It seems like a good book to avoid a reading slump.
Roam is about a homeless teen who is trying to conceal the fact that she is homeless so she can finish school. Oh, my heart. Reviews say it is heart wrenching, but also original and different than most YA out there. I love gritty fiction!
This YA fantasy is one of my most anticipated books of February. The writing has been praised and it has been compared to The Winner’s Curse. I can’t wait to read it.
I basically picked this up on the cover, but I don’t think I will be disappointed. Spectacle is a murder mystery set in Paris in the late 1800’s. Funny, I have been picking up a lot of books with French settings or characters lately.
I have heard a lot of buzz about this time travel novel, and now I found out that Danielle Rollins is the same author as Danielle Vega! I was told that this is a bit different than the rest of her work, but still very good. I will have to judge for myself.
I requested this novel from Edelweiss because it was compared to Laini Taylor’s work and she is one of my favorites. Set in a fantasy world where magic is forbidden and a girl wants to save her best friend from sickness, the plot seems promising, dramatic and full of danger.
Want to Read
The Raven Tower sounds like an intricate adult fantasy novel that I don’t think I could begin to briefly summarize. Early reviews look outstanding, putting this one on my wish list.
The title of this one had me interested. I love morally grey characters, but then to find out this also has ACE/ARO representation? I want a copy please!
Books set in mental institutions tend to be boring as the days in institutions are repetitive, but this book never bored me. Hard to summarize, this book felt deeply personal and was an incredible read.
This book is similar to A Danger to Herself and Others in two ways, one being that both characters struggle from a mental disorder, and the other being that both characters felt extraordinarily genuine. The Girls at 17 Swann Street broke my heart, but left it with some hope. This is a really important novel about eating disorders.
I wanted so much more out of this novel. A school where kids train to be con artists? The plot had so much potential, unfortunately this one just fell flat for me.
OH MY GOD. This novel was amazing. I will always picture phoenixes the way they were described in this book. This is an intricate fantasy novel and it is AMAZING. Unfortunately I think this book might fall beneath the radar, because I haven’t heard a lot about it from friends of mine.
This was the third novel that I read by Amy Ewing. I love her world building and characters, but her plot could have been better. I still want to read the next book. I think my problem with this one was that I had super high expectations going in, and then it was great, but I had expected it to blow my mind.
