Hey! It’s now February so I thought I’d share what I’m planning on reading!
For February, I’m going to honour Black History Month by reading books by black authors and also support a new readathon called Free Book February where you read books that you didn’t buy for yourself personally or got for free!
Let’s get into it!
I’ve not got a particular system in place for Black History Month, but here are the books that I plan on reading:
- Don’t Call Us Dead by Danez Smith – Goodreads
- The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin – Goodreads
- Kindred by Octavia E. Butler – Goodreads
As February is an incredibly short month, I think I will extend my Black History Month TBR into March. I’ll drop by at the end of the month with my TBR for March.
Here’s 25 challenges set by Free Book February:
- Science Fiction
- Nice cover
- Poetry collection
- Queer main character
- Non-white main character
- Over 300 pages
- Under 300 pages
- Young adult
- Middle grade
- Not from Amazon
- First in a series
- Short story or novella
- Recommended to you
- Know nothing about
- 2018 or 2019 release
- Doesn’t have a physical copy
