February To Read List

 

Safe to say, I’ve fallen firmly off the blogging wagon in the past few weeks, and actually off  the reading wagon. I haven’t blogged much, and I haven’t read much either. What I have read, I’ll post about later in the week, but, despite being about 2 weeks in already, I thought I would crack out what I’d like to read this month.

  1. The Mothers by Brit Bennett

The cover for this is gorgeous. It took me ages to realise there was a face in there, and it’s my job to design books. Rookie. It was this month’s book club book, and I really need to get on it. I’ve spoken to a couple of people and they’ve seemed in agreement that whilst it’s nothing groundbreaking, it’s a lovely story. I’ve read the first couple of pages and I’m intrigued so I’d like to finish up that.

2. Orlando by Virginia Woolf

For a self proclaimed VW fangirl, I feel quite ashamed I haven’t actually read this. Whilst I didn’t put it on my reading resolutions this year, I would really like to get through Ms Woolf’s back catalogue (the shame that there is more than 1!), because the woman is a genius. I’m off to see Woolf Works tomorrow (the Royal Ballet’s ballet based on Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves) which I am over the moon excited about so I think I may be on a bit of a Virginia Woolf hype-train after that.

3. A Darkling Plain by Philip Reeve

I’ve been loving this series. I’ve just finished up Infernal Devices and I am stoked to see how it ends.

4. The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson

My boyfriend designed this book. It was Waterstone’s Children’s Book of the Month in January and everyone says it’s brilliant. I’ve had a beautiful proof copy for ages that I never started. What is my problem?! I need to crack on.

5. Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen

Similar vibe. The hype train was strong on this one. I borrowed my friend’s copy and I really need to get through it so I can give it back soon… Awkward.

Keep your fingers crossed for me.
