Looking Forward: February



WHAT THE HELL. Didn't I just write the January one of these?! What did I say, time, about moving so quickly? UGHHHH. Whatever. Get your wallets out, because February, like January before it, is going to stretch it to breaking point. Here are all the February books I'm most looking forward to:

Book of the month:



Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
I mean, I can't help it. I WANT TO SEE MY SHIPS AGAIN.


February 2nd




Starflight by Melissa Landers
This comes highly recommended by Gaby, who says it's Fireflight but even more romantic, which yessssss

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
I love books that focus on lesser known historical occurrences

Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers
Assassins. I am powerless.

Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto
This one is a big crazy genre mash-up (Wild West! Steampunk! Magic!) and I love when books take risks like that

Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin
"Riley Cavanaugh is many things: Punk rock. Snarky. Rebellious. And gender fluid." 
Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell
Captain Hook love interest YES PLEASE


February 9th



Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
YA origin of Blackbeard!!!!!

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
I WANTS IT

These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas 
England, 1882. Dashing rakes, inquisitive and sassy young heroine, SUPERNATURAL POWERS.

The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie
Sea monsters + pirates + girls kissing = !!!!

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine
SNOW WHITE RETELLING

The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
Time traveling diverse pirate ship. All of the yes.

Bluescreen by Dan Wells
Diverse sci fi set in 2050 Los Angeles. Hells to the yeah.

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

After the Woods by Kim Savage
I kinda love post-abduction mysteries.
