Happy February, friends! It’s a short month but as usual there are no shortage of books! If you love series books I’m sure you are excited for Glass Sword, Morning Star, Calamity, and A Gathering of Shadows. I am not up to date on those series yet, (which one should I make a priority?!) so here is my version of what to read in February:
Wicked Sexy Liar and Beautiful Boss by Christina Lauren – Can’t wait to read the latest Wild Seasons installment! Wicked Sexy Liar is on sale Feb. 2 and I’ve definitely pre-ordered that baby. Plus, there’s also a Beautiful Bastard novella due out Feb. 29.
He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker – This suspense novel kept me up all night reading! I love books that pull you in from the very first page. On sale Feb. 2.
Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes – I’ve been holding off on reading this sequel to You until the audiobook comes out. (I already have it on hold at the library) The book is creepy but the audio takes it to a whole other level! On sale Feb. 23.
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys – I’ve been eagerly waiting for this one- Sepetys is one of my favorite YA authors and always writes such compelling, heartbreaking reads. On sale Feb. 2.
Just My Luck by Cammie McGovern – I haven’t been reading a lot of middle grade books lately, but I do like this author’s YA books so I’ll check it out. This one is about Benny; a boy takes an unlucky streak to heart. On sale Feb. 23.
Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin – This debut features a gender-fluid teen – sometimes Riley identifies as a boy and sometimes as a girl. Riley blogs about their feelings anonymously but someone finds out their identity and threatens to out them. I love that we are seeing more books that explore gender identity! On sale Feb. 2.
The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig – This is our book of the month for YA Diversity Book Club. This fantasy adventure is about time travel, pirate ships, and maps and sounds so fun! On sale Feb. 16.
Peas and Carrots by Tanita S. Davis – In this one, a white teenager is placed in foster care with a well-off African-American family (her brother was placed their earlier). Dess doesn’t feel like she fits in with their happy, normal lives in this book that explores race, and what it means to be a family. On sale Feb. 9.
