Black History Month + Free Book February TBR

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:

  1. Fantasy
  2. Contemporary
  3. Science Fiction
  4. Mystery/thriller
  5. Nice cover
  6. Poetry collection
  7. Queer main character
  8. Non-white main character
  9. Over 300 pages
  10. Under 300 pages
  11. Young adult
  12. Middle grade
  13. Not from Amazon
  14. First in a series
  15. Romance
  16. Short story or novella
  17. Recommended to you
  18. Know nothing about
  19. OwnVoices
  20. 2018 or 2019 release
  21. Doesn’t have a physical copy
  22. Less than 50 Goodreads reviews
  23. Author has your initials
  24. Owned for over a year
  25. Historical

Here’s my rough TBR for Free Book February:

    • I received this many years ago as a gift, never got around to reading it.
  • The Driver’s Seat by Muriel Spark – Goodreads
    • I received this book for my birthday, I think, a couple of years back.
