Monthly Posts · To Read

February ’19 | To Read

After the success of January’s TBR, I thought I’d continue with my jar system. At the beginning of each month I’ll pick three titles out of a jar full of names and those will be my prioritised reading for the month. After that, I’ll start reading any given ARC’s or books that I simply can’t stop thinking about. I was initially a little nervous for this month’s draws, hoping not to get any books that are too bulky considering the slightly shorter time frame, but I’m so happy with the ones I pulled out! I’m hoping to try and complete them quite quickly this month as I feel as if my Audible and Netgalley lists just seem to be getting bigger!

1. Zom-B by Darren Shan
Can you love a bullying, racist thug if he’s your father?
How do you react when confronted with your darkest inner demons?
What do you do when zombies attack?
B Smith is about to find out!

2. DROPKICKromance by Cyrus Parker
From pro-wrestler-turned-poet Cyrus Parker comes a poetic memoir that tells the tale of two relationships. The first half of DROPKICKromance focuses on a toxic, long-distance relationship the author was involved in for several years, while the second half focuses on Parker’s current relationship with poet Amanda Lovelace, who penned a beautiful foreword for the book. This collection takes you by hand and brings you on a journey through first love, heartbreak, and learning to love again.

3. What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.
Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.
But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?
Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.
Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.
But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?
What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?
What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?
But what if it is?
