I've got a very ambitious reading target for February (considering that February is the shortest month, that might not be the wisest plan...): it's 15 books long. But since I don't have any trips planned and it's a quieter month on the work and social-life front, I'm trying to knock out some numbers this month round so I can focus on bigger, heftier books later in the year and still meet by 132-books-this-year challenge.
Some of these books you might recognise as having been sat in my online shopping carts - I bit the bullet and bought some of them (hence why the last two in this list aren't pictured; they aren't being delivered till later this week. What carbon footprint...) Plus I already broke my 'only-one-book-in-each-BOTM' as I shipped two to my parents' house for my trip home next month. Hashtag oops.
Yes, YOU, if you're reading this, I've already caved and bought books. I am weak and have no willpower.
Anyway, here are the titles on my list this month:
Melmoth, by Sarah Perry
Fingersmith, by Sarah Waters
L'Oasis éternelle, by Luis Montero Manglano (trans. Claude Bleton)
La Cité des hommes saints, by Luis Montero Manglano (trans. Claude Bleton)
The Other Bennet Sister, by Janice Hadlow
The Most Fun We Ever Had, by Claire Lombardo
Things in Jars, by Jess Kidd
The Silent Patient, by Alex Michaelides
The Glittering Hour, by Iona Grey
The Great Pretender: The Undercover Mission That Changed Our Understanding of Madness, by Susannah Cahalan
The Spring of the Ram, by Dorothy Dunnett
Race of Scorpions, by Dorothy Dunnett
Scales of Gold, by Dorothy Dunnett
Au service secret de Marie-Antoinette: L'enquête du Barry, by Frederic Lenormand
Au service secret de Marie-Antoinette: Pas de répit pour la Reine, by Frederic Lenormand
Friends? Who needs friends? I have books!
