On My Nightstand in February 2016

Posted February 3, 2016 by Carlisa in Monthly TBR / 5 Comments


I didn’t read nearly as many books as I wanted to last month, but here’s to new months and new chances! I have some school books, some review books, and some fun books, so let’s talk about it.

TBR for class

Pair these babies with tons of Edgar Allan Poe short stories (I’m in a Poe class, fyi) and tons of short stories, essays,  and poems for my Victorian lit class. And then that’s basically it for my class tbr this month. I don’t usually count short stories as “books” on Goodreads, but I wish that I did because I read so many and none count towards my Goodreads goal. Buuuut it’s okay. And, yes, I do know that I am currently four books behind on said goal. Let’s not talk about that.

A House to Let by Charles Dickens
The Social Contract by Rousseau
The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket by Edgar Allan Poe

TBR for review

We are here once again with the review copies. My Netgalley ratio is too low for my liking, so hopefully I’ll be able to read and review some new books this month!

TBR for kicks

And, of course, there are the books that I want to read for me and only me. I’m currently reading The Love That Split the World and hoping to finish that within a couple of days. So let’s see what other books are on my possible to-be-read radar. ALSO I am going to meet Marissa Meyer on her book tour for Stars Above TONIGHT. Dsadjisoajdsaio I’m so excited. Also, let’s not talk about how I still haven’t read Hotel Ruby, even though that was one that I pre-ordered (*hangs head in shame* Sarah, I know what you’re going to say if you see this).

What books are on your to-be-read list for the month? Have you read any of the books on my list? Let me know in the comments!

  • Don’t feel so bad about preordering a book and not reading it yet. I preordered The Infinite Sea and still haven’t read it.
    – Emma @ Emma Likes Books

  • I hope you enjoy all of these! I really enjoyed The Year We Fell Apart.
    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

  • I’m so so so excited to read Stars Above! Can’t wait for more Cinder, Scarlett, Cress and Winter! (and their boys!)

  • The Madwoman Upstairs has an interesting cover! I’m intrigued. 😀 Between Shades of Gray is SO GOOD. It’s definitely worth getting to. The Love That Split the World looks like a really good read and I’m hoping that you’re liking it. I want to get a copy of that one before too long. 🙂 Happy reading!

  • Ooo, ‘The Girl from Everywhere’ and ‘Hotel Ruby’ sound interesting. Hope you enjoy both of them – and all of your reads! 🙂
