February TBR

I know, I’m terribly late for my February TBR Post. These past two weeks have been so stressful. I’ve been completely snowed under, figuratively with work, but also literally. Ahhh lots of snow here. It feels like I got nothing done and had to ignore hobbies like my blog and my YouTube channel.

When I finally had some time to breathe and think about my February TBR I had no clue what I wanted to read. In the end, I decided to approach the matter logically.

  • My unread Netgalley books make me feel so guilty, so I’ll have to prioritise them in both February and March.
  • I want to focus on both historical fiction and also historical non-fiction in the future. This seems to be my sort of niche and I love reading about history. Therefore, I’m aiming to read (and review) 2 historical fiction novels and one non-fiction book.
  • As part of my Discworld reread, I’ve got to read my monthly Discworld book – that’s easy to pick at least.

I’ll try to break it down somehow, and leave the Netgalley books for last – GUILT! As always, click on the covers to get to the Goodreads page.

Physical Book TBR:

Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett

Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett; book cover
  • Discworld #19; City Watch #3
  • First published: 1996
  • Hardcover; 335 pages

How can I describe this book? It’s Discworld, it’s fantasy, absurd and brilliant. It’s about discrimination and the question: What makes a person? Well, I’ve read it before and I know I love it. Can’t wait to start!

The White Mare by Jules Watson

The White Mare by Jules Watson; book cover
  • Dalriada Trilogy #1
  • First published: 2004
  • Paperback; 613 pages

It’s a historical fiction novel, set in Scotland during the Roman conquest. There are fantasy and mythology elements. I’ve already started it and love it. It’s just the sort of book I normally go for, so I don’t expect any huge surprises.

From Here to Eternity: Travelling the World to Find the Good Death by Caitlin Doughty

From Here to Eternity by Caitlin Doughty; book cover
  • First published in 2017
  • Paperback; 238 pages

It’s about death and how the dead are treated all over the world. I’m so fascinated by the topic and I adore the beautiful illustrations inside.

The Inklings: C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams and Their Friends by Humphrey Carpenter

The Inklings by Humphrey Carpenter; book cover
  • First published in 1978
  • Paperback; 287 pages

A biography of the Inklings. I love Tolkien and have read a lot about him. However, I don’t know much about the Inklings. This group of friends was so important to him, I really need to find out more about them. I loved Humphrey Carpenter’s Tolkien Biography, so I’m pretty sure that I’ll like this one too.

Well, those are the physical books I want to read. Regarding e-books / Netgalley books: I have no idea what I’ll end up reading! The same goes for audiobooks. I’m excited to find out though, haha!
