January was such an amazing reading month for me! I am so happy with how I started off the year, and I am really looking forward to continuing this month. I’m pretty excited about what I’m planning to read, so fingers crossed I’ll manage to read this entire list. I did it in January, I can do it again.
Becoming by Michelle Obama. I have been meaning to read this for months, and I think it’s finally time. I did read a few pages already, and I am loving it so far. Really excited to get to this one!
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. I’ve wanted to revisit this one for over a year now. I first read it in my third year of college, and have since either read or reread post of the other Brontë novels. I’m curious to see how this stacks up next to Jane Eyre and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. When I saw Melanie’s #CatchUpOnClassics readalong, I thought it was perfect.
99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne. I don’t read many romance novels, but I loved The Hating Game. I’ve been really looking forward to Sally Thorne’s newest book, and it’s finally here. I’m probably going to need a fun read to balance out Wuthering Heights, and I think this’ll do the trick nicely.
Love’s Labor’s Lost by William Shakespeare. I’m so close to being done with my Shakespeare read-through. I’m kind of picking at random from the ones I have left, so we’re going with this one. I have no idea what it’s about.
I also want to read another nonfiction book for Black History Month, but I’m not quite sure what I’m going with yet. I have a few good candidates on my shelves. I think I’ve narrowed it down to either Prince of Darkness: The Untold Story of Jeremiah G. Hamilton, Wall Street’s First Black Millionaire by Shane White or The Bill of the Century: The Epic Battle for the Civil Rights Act by Clay Risen. Which one do you think I should read?
Alright, that’s it for February! I’m really happy with this list, and I think it’s going to be a great reading month.
What books are you hoping to get to in February?
