February 2018 TBR

I want to try something different this month. I will set myself a tentative TBR and see how that goes. It will be a mix of ARCs I still need to read, books on my shelves that are calling out to me, and two sci-fi books. I am currently already reading 4 books, as you can see in my wrap up.


If you click here you’ll find my complete list of ARCs I have to read.


Up Up, Down Down by Cheston Knapp

The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale

To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

The Sea Beast Takes A Lover by Michael Andreasen

How I Lose You by Kate McNaughton

A Guide For Murdered Children by Sarah Sparrow

Gods of Howl Mountain by Taylor Brown

TBR Books on my Shelves:

Monstress Vol. 2 by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda

Snow in May by Kseniya Melnik

My Favourite Thing is Monsters by Emil Ferris

The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion by Margaret Killjoy

The Tidal Zone by Sarah Moss

Acceptance (The Southern Reach #3) by Jeff VanderMeer

TBR Science Fiction:

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

All Systems Down (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

ARCs to be published this month (with reviews already written):

Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi

Folk by Zoe Gilbert

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

Starlings by Jo Walton

Well, that list is very long. But I need to be able to still choose fairly freely because otherwise this’ll never work.

Have you read any of these books? Can you recommend one in particular? Which review are you looking forward to, if any?

  1. A Guide for Murdered Children appears interesting; I look forward to your review! If you’re looking for any graphic novel recommendations, I’ve reviewed quite a few on my blog over the years. You can search “graphic novel” in the search box if you are on a computer (the search box doesn’t appear on mobile devices). I’ve also got a collection of comics that I’m selling fairly cheaply because I decided to by the trade version instead of the individual comics. I have #1-#13 of Lenore, The Cute Little Dead Girl by Roman Dirge for $20 + shipping if you are interested.

  2. The Tidal Zone is fabulous; Sarah Moss is one of the best and most under-sung contemporary authors in the UK at the moment, I think. Acceptance is also excellent (and just as weird as the other two in the Southern Reach trilogy), and I enjoyed Ancillary Justice, although a couple of reviews I read after I finished it pointed out some flaws.

    1. I have only heard great things about The Tidal Zone, I really need to get to it soon. Sarah Moss’ books really appeal to me and I want to find out if I love them as much as I think I would.
      I am a bit apprehensive about Acceptance because I wasn’t the biggest fan on Authority, even if Jeff VanderMeer is obviously brilliant.

      1. I know how you feel, I didn’t particularly like the YA books I read in January. I’m hoping this improves in February!

  3. I can’t wait to read your reviews for these. I haven’t read any of them yet but a ton are on my TBR. The Tidal Zone in particular I’ve been interested in for ages, but I don’t own a copy as I’ve not been able to find one in a US bookstore. I should just order it online one of these days.
