I’m not sure how many books I will read in February other than the four arcs I’m currently sitting on. For those interested the arcs I will be reading and reviewing in February are A Trial of Sorcerers by Elise Kova, Isoldesse by Kimberly Grymes, The Short Knife by Elen Caldecott and Everything That Burns by Gita Trelease.
For that reason, I am only going to choose two other books as I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself.
A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers #1) by Brigid Kemmerer
I have been meaning to read this for so long. I want to read this so bad that I already own the entire series without reading the first book (please tell me this was a good idea and not a huge mistake).
This is currently sitting on my bedside table so I’m definitely projecting ‘I’m going to read this’ vibes. However, I just really don’t know if I’ll have the time to. I really, really hope I do.
Goodreads synopsis: “Fall in love, break the curse.
Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year, Prince Rhen, the heir of Emberfall, thought he could be saved easily if a girl fell for him. But that was before he turned into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. Before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, Harper learned to be tough enough to survive. When she tries to save a stranger on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s pulled into a magical world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. A prince? A curse? A monster? As she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.”
Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
I’m definitely in need of some contemporary right now and as this has been on my to be read on Goodreads since 2016 its about time I picked it up.
Honestly, the main reason why I’m thinking of reading this is because of its semi-short length. I don’t know if I’ll actually get time to read this but I couldn’t make a to be read post with just one book and four non-tangible arcs.
Goodreads synopsis: “My disease is as rare as it is famous. It’s a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, but basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in fifteen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives. New next-door neighbours. I look out the window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black t-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly. I want to learn everything about him, and I do. I learn that he is funny and fierce. I learn that his eyes are Atlantic Ocean-blue and that his vice is stealing silverware. I learn that when I talk to him, my whole world opens up, and I feel myself starting to change—starting to want things. To want out of my bubble. To want everything, everything the world has to offer.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.”
Let me know what you are planning to read in February!
