Bookbugworld’s February 2020 TBR
I hope it is not too late to post a monthly TBR. Before we go into the post, this actually reminds me of the scene from Devil Wears Prada. “Flowers for Spring?, groundbreaking”, and that Meryl Streep face.
Why so? Because, I am sticking to romance reads for February. Although there are a couple of fantasy books in the mix. Thanks to book tours. Anyway without anymore delay, here we go :
1. Rise of Gaia by Kristin Ward
This is a science fiction/fantasy YA book that I intend to read for a blog tour. I have already started this one and it is a relevant topic as you can probably see from the title. In my language, Gaia is a synonym to Mother Earth. If you’re not familiar with the word, the book is about how Mother Earth rises up against the atrocities that humanity has commited to her. This is unfortunately not a fantasy anymore as we have several instances of the fury of nature before us. However, in the Indian culture the Earth is always considered as a Goddess. It is evident in our classical dance forms too, where we first learn to touch the ground as a sign of respect to Mother Earth because we are using our feet on the ground to dance. Sadly, such ways of life are moving away from us and I am curious to find out how the story treats this topic.
2. Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey
As I told you before, since it is February and all, I am focusing on romance reads mostly. Fix Her Up is the first book in the Hot and Hammered series by Tessa Bailey. All I know about this one is that it is a hot and steamy romance novel which a lot of the bookish community seems to have enjoyed in 2019. I have to join the party as well.
3. Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey
This is the second book in the Hot and Hammered series which came out in January 2020. This book is the reason why I decided to pick up Fix Her Up. This book follows the characters from the first book. It focuses on a couple Rosie and Dominic who want to work on their marriage. Sounds like an interesting premise as it is about love and bumpy days after marriage. So, why not give it a go?
3. Kingshold by D P Woolliscroft
This is another fantasy book which I am reading for #TheWriteReads blog tour. TheWriteReads is this amazing bookish community of which I am a proud member. They have these blog tours or Ultimate blog tours which really intorduces us to awesome indie authors. I have loved most of these books which I have come across during their blog tours. I am sure this one will be no different.Kingshold is the first book in the Widlfire Cycle series. A servant, a bard and the daughter of a wizard form an unlikely group for a doomed cause in order to bring hope and order to their kingdom. Intrigue!! I am curious to read more about this. I mean I am partial to books involving wizard, bards and you know monster hunters. So, why not toss a coin to this one?
4. This Won’t End Well by Camille Pagan
This is a NetGalley e-ARC that I am looking forward to reading this month. Annie is done with people. She vows not let anyone new in her life after her fiance demands a time off and goes to Paris and her best friend tries to “cure” her with crystals. But then, a new neighbor moves in and suddenly Annie cannot just mind her own business. This isn’t going to end well because two people are deliberately letting themselves into her life. That definitely sounds like an interesting premise and I want to find out more.
5. Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennet
I have been meaning to read this book for quite a few months now. This is still a long stretch fitting in a fifth book on a shorter month. But fingers crossed, lets hope I get there and finally read a Jenn Bennet book. This is a YA contemporary romance novel. Birdie and Daniel are forced to work in a Seattle hotel. When a mysterious and reclusive author becomes a regular at the hotel, they try to uncover the truth and make a journey of self discovery themselves. Well, the synopsis explains this in a much more beautiful and romantic way. And the book has this cozy and welcoming cover that I love. Hopefully I finish my way through this one.
So that sums up my February TBR. Have you read any of these books? If so, let me know in the comments ( without any spoilers please
), if you enjoyed it or not. If not, then share your February TBR with me.
