Let me just say that even though I’m like 3 books behind my reading goal, January was a pretty decent reading month if I do say so myself. I got through 5 audiobooks and even though I didn’t finish a physical book, I did read more physical pages than I have in awhile! Those are wins in my book!
Now it’s time for a February reading list. This is the shortest month of the year and I have some big work projects on deck so I really don’t have any business putting this many books on my list buuuuuuuuut I’mma do it anyway. Here we go!

First, here are the titles I’ve pulled from my bookshelves. In alphabetical order –
This is a Book of the Month pick from awhile ago. Post World War 2, FBI, spies, espionage, and secrets? My kind of historical fiction! I’m really looking forward to this one! I’m reading this for the following challenge –
- The 52 Book Club’s 2023 Reading Challenge – a book you meant to read last year
This book has been on my TBR for awhile and I just found a copy at a thrift store!! Perfect timing for Black History Month! I’m really looking forward to reading this one.
Another BOTM pick. This book has been on and off my TBR list for awhile and since I’ve been on a bit of a World War II kick lately, I figured it needed to come back to the list. I’m also reading for the following challenge –
- The Booklist Queen’s 2023 Reading Challenge – by a black author
I’ve heard really good things about this book and I think it’ll be really good for this season of my life. On a surface level, I have to say it looks so cozy which is so perfect for winter :). I’m reading this for the following challenge –
- The A-Z Reading Challenge – Book starting with ‘S’
I should have read this book when it first came out – I’ve read all of Wilkin’s books and I love her work and her voice. I already know this is going to be really good!
I’ve also added these audiobooks to my list –
Little Women is one of my absolute favorite classics. A remix with brown girls like me? Lol, count me in! I’m so intrigued by this retelling! I reeeeeeeeeeally want it to be good!
- The 52 Book Club’s 2023 Reading Challenge – a book about siblings
I came across this book by accident while browsing Libby the other night. I have a feeling this is going to be a bit heavy but I’m really interested in the premiss of this memoir – I think this is going to be really good!
I’m not a huge YA reader but I found this while browsing either Bookstagram or Libby (I can’t remember ><) and, while I was interested because it’s a historical retelling of a fairy tale, the thing that hooked me was when the description said that it’s perfect for people who like Eva Ibbotson. That was it for me. One of my absolute favorite books is Ibbotson’s A Countess Below Stairs. I. Love. That. Book. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to the audio over the past decade! I also really loved Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix. If this book, and the rest in the series are anything like either of those, I’ll seriously enjoy it! I’ll be reading this for the following challenge –
- Beyond the Bookends 2023 Reading Challenge – Read a historical romance
I still have 2 more reading challenges to fulfill for the month so I’ll be on the lookout for a couple more titles. We’ll see what happens!
What are you planning to read in February?
