February is quickly coming to a close, which is crazy because where is this year going, and it’s time to share my to-be-read list for next month. Check out the list below and let me know if you’ve read or plan to read any of these books.
1. Multiple Listings by Tracy McMillan
I got a digital ARC of this book and I can’t wait to read it! Tracy McMillan is a screenwriter (she wrote for Mad Men!) and this novel is somewhat based on her real life. The main character Nicki Daniels is a real estate agent who’s ex-con father just got out of jail and is looking for place to stay. But Nicki is just getting her life on track and the last thing she needs is her father messing things up. I get a filling this book will be filled with family drama and I love it.
2. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I’ve hard so much about this book and it’s been sitting on my shelf for months now. I’m hoping this month will be the month I finally dive in. The novel follows Violet and Finch who meet on the ledge of a bell tower. Their friendship/relationship grows from there. Dealing with love, depression, and so much else this sounds like a great read.
3. After You by Jojo Moyes
After reading Me Before You (and crying for days!) I absolutely have to know what happens next. I loved Lou and I’m excited to know what happens to her. In this sequel, we see Lou back with her family struggling to figure out her next steps and hopefully, discovering love. I’m sure this book will make me cry just as much as the original but I’m going to read it anyway.
I got a digital ARC copy of this book from Entangled teen and it sounds really interesting to me. Claudia has never been kissed but when she starts tutoring popular hockey player, Chris, she begins to fall for him. Honestly, I’m a sucker for the nerd gets with the popular person type of story. Haley and Nathan on One Tree Hill, anyone? This book is sure to make me swoon.
5. Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
I want this book so badly. Unfortunately I’m currently on an indefinite book buying ban but thank God for libraries. If you haven’t read the Lunar Chronicles yet definitely check it out because it’s amazing. Stars Above is a collection of short stories about the characters in the books plus a special epilogue to the last book.
6. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield
This is another book that’s been on my shelf for months and I’m so ready to read it. This book is like two books in one. On one level we have the story of Darcy who got a book deal and moves to New York and then on another level we have the story she wrote about Lizzie. Also, I love that the main characters names are Darcy and Lizzie. Pride and Prejudice feels everywhere!
7. Prodigy by Marie Lu
I read Legend so long ago and I loved it. Now I need to know what happens next. June and Day are on the run to Vegas and there’s a new Elector in charge. June and Day have to figure out what’s right and what’s wrong as they’re forced to pick a side as a revolution begins.
8. The Haters by Jesse Andrews
I got this lovely ARC from Abrams and I’m supper excited to read it. I haven’t read Me and Earl and the Dying Girl yet but I will. Until then I really want to read this book because it sounds super good. Wes, Corey, and Ash decide to leave band camp and hit the road, leading to a music filled adventure that I’m sure I’ll love.
