February ’18 TBR List

Posted February 3, 2018 by Lillian in Features / 4 Comments

This meme is hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading. By the first Saturday of the month, I’ll pick three books from my massive TBR pile and then you will vote which one I read. Majority vote wins and I’ll post the winner on the second Saturday of the month. Then I will read the book and on the last Saturday of the month I’ll share what I thought about the book you picked for me to read. Fun right ? I’ve tweaked this meme just a little and will also share with you what I plan to read for the month. Voting is at the bottom.

Happy Saturday y’all! I can’t believe it’s already February! January flew by. I’m SO proud of myself. I made a list and actually stuck to it!!! I read all but one book from my list last month. I’d say that’s pretty good 😀 I have several ARCs I’d like to read this month so my list is reflective of that. My goal is to make it though my list and knock out some ARCs.

Driftwood Cove by Debbie Mason: I’m actually reading this one as I write this post. I love Debbie Mason’s Harmony Harbor series which revolves around the Gallagher family. This one I’ve been waiting on because the short story Christmas with an Angel teased the couple this book is based on. Can’t wait to see their HEA.

By a Charm and a Curse by Jaime Questell: This book sounds fun! A traveling circus/carnival, a 100 year old curse, and a romance all in one 😀 I’m reading it for a blog tour next week.

By the Book by Julia Sonneborn: I can’t help but adore these contemporary romances that have a character who is as in love with books as I am. Plus it’s set in England. I love books set in another country!

The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory: Another contemporary romance. I can’t help it. I’m in the mood for them, especially with Valentine’s Day around the corner.

Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman: Dragons!! Do I really need another reason to read this book?! I didn’t realize when I picked this one up that it is set in the same world as the author’s Seraphina. I haven’t read that book yet but I hope to soon…again because DRAGONS!

The First Kiss of Spring by Emily March: This will be my first book from this author and the premise sounds promising. I love small town romances!

The Innkeeper’s Daughter by Michelle Griep: I read this author for the first time around Christmas and really loved her clean romance. This one is another historical romance that sounds perfect!

Lake Silence by Anne Bishop: The start of the spin-off for the Others. I cannot wait to read this one! I hope it lives up to the hype in my head.

The Program by Suzanne Young: This is a book that’s been on my TBR for a while and I’m so excited to finally be able to get to it. I’m reading it as a part of Andi’s ABC’s New to You feature. I love my dystopias 😀

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi: I am so freaking excited for this one! I won a copy on Goodreads and it finally came in. I’m having to remind myself that I have a list of other books that have to be read before I can dive into this one. But y’all it’s hard! The reviews so far are phenomenal and you know I love fantasy….maybe I can read just one page now. Just one page wouldn’t hurt right?

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo: I loved Six of Crows and have not had a chance to finish the series yet. This is my #2018HW pick for this month and I’m hoping to read it soon.

Time to Vote! 

The A to Z of You and Me by James Hannah

He has all kinds of everyday joy in his life — he’s young, he’s in love, he has friends who promise to stand by him if life ever goes wrong.

Then one day, life does go wrong.

He makes a mistake, and it’s big and unforgiveable. Now time is running out, and his life is falling apart. But he’s going to put it back together again. His own way.

This is a story about how far love must stretch to gather a life in pieces — and about how a strong friendship never dies.


Book Cover for "Geekerella" by Ashley PostonGeekerella by Ashley Poston

Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic science-fiction series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck and her dad’s old costume, Elle’s determined to win – unless her stepsisters get there first.

Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons – before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he has ever wanted, but Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake – until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. But when she disappears at midnight, will he ever be able to find her again?

Part-romance, part-love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom.


Book Cover for "No Place Like You" by Emma DouglasNo Place Like You by Emma Douglas

Home–in the island village of Cloud Bay–is where the heart is. . .

Leah Santelli always knew that Zach Harper, son of a rock legend and her best friend’s brother, was painfully out of reach. Then, on the night of her eighteenth birthday, Leah shocked herself by asking for–and receiving–the gift she wanted: one night of passion with Zach before he left town to pursue his rock star dreams. Now, years later, Zach is back in Cloud Bay to record his first solo album. His return could also be Leah’s big chance to step up her own music career. But getting the producing credit she needs means spending long hours with Zach in the recording studio…and falling back into the habit of longing for him, for better or worse.

Zach used to believe that a man must put his past behind him. But coming back home for Cloud Bay’s famed music festival has allowed him to finally make amends with his family and, much to his surprise, reunite with Leah. He might have left her once but now it seems he can’t stay away. Trouble is, even though the heat between them burns hotter than ever, Leah has old wounds in need of healing before she can give Zach a real chance. Can he find a way to convince her that they can make more than just great music together–and that she’s the one that he wants for all time?

  1. You’ve got some great books on you to read list this month, Lillian! I am trying to catch up with the The Others series so I can get to Lake Silence. I just love the world Anne Bishop has created in that series. Children of Blood and Bone is another one I would like to read at some point. I hope you get to them all!

    I ended up voting for Geekerella because I keep seeing it around am curious about it. They all sound like they will be good ones though. I hope you enjoy whichever wins! Have a great week!
