Happy new month!!!
Yes, Yes, I know. No need to say it. I’m seven days late (A week, precisely). I’m going to spare you the long excuses with one word- Exams. It was hell, but looking on the bright side, First Semester is over. Yaaayy! The Dark Side? The Holiday is more or less, two weeks. Boooo! As if that’s not enough, within this period I have to complete Chapter Three of my school project (So, help me God!)
Anywayyy, let’s get down right to it. January was really slow for me and I didn’t accomplish much. Reviews for last month wrap-up ought to have been finished by now but I have been able to cough up one. Bummer. Nevertheless, I’m working on completing the rest before the end of next week.
February, the extra special month of the year, has some extra special books. To be able to reach the set goal, I picked books with average page numbers and something a little sporadic. There’s horror, comedy, Mystery, Thriller and others in the mix.
List of Feb TBRs
- Chasing Tomorrow by Sidney Sheldon
- Coraline by Neil Gaiman
- The Hairdressers of Harare by Tendai Huchu
- Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
- One of Us is Lying by Karen.M. McManus
- The Man called Ove by Fredrik Backman
- The Good Girl by Mary Kubica
- The Other Girl by Erica Spindler
- The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
This is a long stretch considering how fast this month seems to be going. However, I have completed The hairdressers of Harare and One of Us is Lying, and I am currently on The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and Coraline. Hopefully, I should be done with both books by next week. On this note, here are my Five Stars Prediction.
- A man called Ove
- The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
- The Good Girl
- The Other Girl
Considering, I have already read The Hair Dressers of Harare and One of Us is lying, I cannot predict five stars because they already have my five stars. Both books are amazing!! You should check them out. I would be dropping reviews as soon as I can.
Seeing as I love to stress myself, I still got my eyes on some books that wouldn’t dare fit into the TBR’s, yet I can’t but fantasize. They include, Good Girls Lie by J.T Ellisson, When I was You by Minka Kent, Kiss the Girls and Make Them Cry by Mary Higgins Clark, Unspeakable Things by Jess Lourey, The Look Alike by Erica Spindler and the list goes on.
No choice than push them to March or probably just dump my list and read whatever I’m in the mood for. Only Time will tell. January was a real tester. I completed all TBR’s and more except one- The Secret By Rhonda Byrne. It’s not a bad book. Actually, its quite inspiring. The only problem was I got the whole point of the book in the early parts and lost the zeal to round it off.
I’m counting on Feb to be a whole lot better than January, girl really needs it. I’m optimistic about all the books. Though, I’m quite shaky on Chasing Tomorrow #2 in Tracy Whitney Series, it got a lot of bad ratings on goodreads and complains, as Tilly Bagshawe, Sidney’s successor, wasn’t able to replicate Mr Sheldon’s constructionism, which I find quite absurd and strangely impossible. Nevertheless, I keep an open mind to it.
So, tell me, what book goals do you plan for the month? Do you want to share any with me? Drop into the comments and let’s exchange ideas.
