February 2017 TBR List

How did I forget to make a TBR list for January? It’s just as well. I read weird stuff, and spent most of my time on one book 😉

Before I jump to the TBR, this is what I read in January:

  • In the Pleasure Groove: Love, Death, and DurnaDuran by John Taylor
  • Fortune Hunter (Miss Fortune Mystery #8) by Jana Deleon
  • Paris by Edward Rutherford (over 800 pages!)
  • The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman
  • Emotion Amplifiers by Angela Ackerman
  • The Negative Trait Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman

That’s 6/80 books for the year. All of them were really good, just in different ways.

February TBR

I’ve started reading 3 books, those top the pile.

  • Corroded by Carrie Dalby- Dalby is a local author. This marks the second book of hers I’ve read. It’s a YA book featuring a boy with Asperger’s. So far, so good. The teens communicate through emails on a daily basis so I might use this for my epistolary novel.
  • Plot & Structure: Techniques and Exercises for Crafting a Plot that GripsReaders from Start to Finish by James Scott Bell. That title is entirely too long. I’m taking my time as I read, only a chapter a day. I’m working through exercises as I go. So far– Excellent
  • Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade by Patrick Denis- I love this movie. It’s one of my all time favorites. As a kid, I wanted to live with Auntie Mame, forget the circus. This is on my Kindle and I hope to finish it. So far it follows the movie fairly well. This will take care of the novel set during the 20s!

Other books I might read:

  • A Monster Calls by Parick Ness- As soon as I brought this book home, my youngest stole it. She devoured it within 48 hours. She gives her seal of approval.
  • Fantastic Creatures by A Fellowship of Fantasy Authors– including me 🙂

Reading 4 books this month may be pushing it, but I will try.

What’s on your TBR pile?
