I've decided to do something a bit different, and a bit more fun, for February - I'm going to spend this month entirely in one genre! And because I've gone with historical fiction (of course I have), I'm also going to amuse myself by reading them in chronological order of setting.
I've also got a buddy read with my Instagram reading group starting this month, so have stuck that on there. And I've decided to use my month of historical fiction as my month-long break of serious nonfiction because my brain hurts and I'm spending most of my waking hours dealing with immigration judgments, so I need some escapist reading at the moment.
Please read on for my full February TBR (I've put the time periods in, as well, and have highlighted the ones I hope to review; but as always I make no promises).
