February TBR: spooky ladies, contemporary-a-thon, and feeling optimistic!

February 4, 2020

Another new month means another new TBR, and despite February being the shortest month of the year, I decided to put together a pretty optimistic list! ?

The themes this month are…

  1. Fantastic February — come join us at Devour Your TBR on Goodreads while we focus on fantasy reads!
  2. #LOHFReadathon — Ladies of Horror Fiction is hosting a readathon all month devoted to reading horror written by women! (Check out my sign-up video here!)
  3. Contemporary-a-thon — Chelsea, Julie, and Natasha are hosting round 6 of the Contemporary-a-thon and I’ll be following along on here, twitter, and booktube! (I won’t be putting most of my Contemporary-a-thon TBR in this list, though… you’ll have to keep an eye out for my TBR video coming later this week!)

And, of course, I’m still devoting 2020 to #ARCApocalypse!

Now, on to my TBR!

    Love this!

    I’m really sorry to hijack your post but how did you enable comments when there was an issue? My wordpress has put me on this damn update and now my comments bubble and form have gone…..and I cant figure out how to get it back!

      Thank you! <3

      Oh no, I'm sorry! Honestly I just toggled a bunch of settings on and off until a few people told me they weren't having issues anymore. ? I am SO sorry because I know that truly isn't helpful at all but I don't think I "did" anything so much as Jetpack finally getting their shit together on my blog. Have you had any luck figuring it out? I'm sorry, I know this comment was from a few days ago now.

    HI. Great TBR. I have heard of The Deep on another blog. I might have to look that book up and see what is about.
