February Monthly TBR


I didn’t read as much as I wanted to in January. I mean, I kind of did because I read about half of damn Alexanderย Hamilton plus three other books, but still. And I’m SO behind in my comic reading, it’s a shame.

But then I said to myself: “So create an even BIGGER pile for February!” Logical, I am not. But who knows.


From the top…

  • Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon – Already 25% through this, continuing with my Outlander series re-read.
  • Destiny’s Captive by Beverly Jenkins – Romance, because you know, February / Valentine’s Day. And I think the heroine in this one is a pirate or something, so fun stuff.
  • The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz – I’ve never read Junot Diaz, but he’s a popular author and I’ve had this book for a long time now.
  • Jazz by Toni Morrison – Honestly, my attention span and general inclination at the moment for some lighter reading means this may not happen this month. But I like to be optimistic.
  • Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell – LAFAYETTE! ‘Nuff said.
  • Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow – And this shall be the month we finish off the #HamAlong, which has been delightful. I get the sense that Chernow is a bit of a sexist, and he’s way too much of a Hamilton fanboy, but this might actually end up on my best-of list at the end of the year. I’m sure reading it after loving the Hamilton musical makes it seem much more fun and lively than if I had read it before, but whatever.
  • Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man Volume 2 – More Miles Morales!
  • Fables Volume 8-10 – MOOARRR FABLES!!

There’s no way this is all gonna happen, but I’ll give it a shot. What are you excited to read this month?




  1. I don’t tend to make TBR lists monthly but I’m fascinated by these posts! I really need to continue making my way through the Outlander books – my sister is supposed to loan me the 4th one some day soon.
    I really want to read that Hamilton bio but only because I’m so enjoying listening to that soundtrack! It’s so amazing.

    Good luck with your feb reading!


  2. I completely agree re: Hamilton (I think I mentioned somewhere that I missed the Hamalong, how well!) – it’s a much more fun read having heard the music from the musical. And that is a GREAT stack of books – I have a bunch in my tbr list too! Happy reading!


  3. My brother-in-law was talking to a friend of his about Hamilton the musical, and his friend said “But you read the book first, of course?” No, son. No he did not. But apparently my BIL’s friend is a huuuuuuuuuuuge fan of biographies, and the Chernow biography of Hamilton is the reason why he likes them. So who knows! Maybe you’d have loved it even without the musical!

    I would not have, however. For sure. I don’t like American history and I never read biographies.
