It’s hard to believe it’s almost February, less than 24 hours until I head back to uni and the hectic semester begins. Even though I was off, January wasn’t a great reading month for me, I was really rubbish at sticking to my TBR. For that reason, this month’s going to be very short, hopefully it’ll be a chance to catch up on last month.
- Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I planned to read this one in January after I finished Under Rose Tainted Skies (my favourite read of the month). However, after posting that picture, I made the executive decision to wait a while, I didn’t want the stories to merge together for me. I’m definitely going to be checking this out this month though. I don’t know a whole lot about it, except that it deals with mental illness, specifically OCD, but that’s enough to have me intrigued.
- Dubliners by James Joyce. I read a few short stories from this anthology when I was in secondary school, and I really enjoyed them. Although I’m not a devout Joyce fan, I’d love to read these, especially after my trip down to Dublin in January. This collection of short stories tells the tale of different people living in Dublin. So far, all the ones I’ve read were working class, but I’m not sure which classes it spans – I guess I’ll let you know in the review.
- Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams. I loved A Streetcar Named Desire, and I’ve been craving some more ever since. I know very little about this story, except that it’s an American classic, but I have very high hopes!
- Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins. You have no idea how long this has been on my TBR shelf! It’s been at least 2 years since I read Rebel Belle, the first installment in this series. I’m not sure why I haven’t picked this one up until now, I guess it just never made the cut. I am determined to rectify this this month!
So there you have it, obviously I’m not back into school mode and so have a lot of books to read for school, which cuts down my TBR considerably, but think 4 is a manageable number.
Are you planning on reading anything exciting this month? Let me know in the comments!
