February Stacks

I am a nut about making lists and plans at the beginning of each month of what books I'd like to read. I also keep in mind the challenges I'm working on, but I never want to turn reading into something stressful................... so some times it works out and sometimes it doesn't, but I always seem to have fun along the way. So for February, here is what I selected:
  1. Bombay Time; Umrigar (Support Your Local Library)
  2. If Today Be Sweet; Umrigar (Support Your Local Library)
  3. First Darling of the Morning; Umrigar (Support Your Local Library)
  4. Thank You for All Things; Kring (Support Your Local Library)
  5. The Gift of Years; Chittister (Spiritually Speaking; Support Your Local Library; New Authors
  6. The Big House; Colt (In Their Shoes; New Authors; Read Your Own Books)
  7. The Winter of Our Discontent; Steinbeck (Steinbeck Mini Challenge, Read Your Own Books)
  8. The Seamstress of Hollywood Boulevard; McGraw (Support Your Local Library; New Authors)
  9. Finding Your Own North Star; Beck (Spiritually Speaking and New Authors and Read Your Own Books)
  10. Easter Parade; Yates (Read Your Own Books; New Authors)
  11. Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet; Ford (2009 Pub Challange; New Authors; Read Your Own Books)
  12. Free Food For Millionaires; Lee (Audio book Challenge; Read Your Own Books)
  13. Mercy; Picoult (not shown/current read) (Winter Reading Challenge; Read Your Own Books)
  14. Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing; Fogarty (Support Your Local Library)
What's on your list for February?


  1. I don't like to commit too much to all the books I am going to read in the next weeks. I am much too spontaneous for that. But I will be finishing up Life of Pi by Yann Martel, Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert, and making a dent in The Brothers Karamazov (I seriously doubt it will be finished by the end of February).

    Your list sounds great, though. You should have a lovely time reading this month. :)

  2. It sure looks like you will be reading some good books this month. I love Picoult but haven't had a chance to read one of her books in awhile now.

  3. You have a great month of reading ahead! I really enjoyed Free Food for Millionaires...

  4. It sure looks like you have some good reading ahead of you for February. I'm a stickler for planning the month too. I have a list of 5 must reads and then there's the add ons that come from authors and such. It's going to be another busy month.

  5. I haven't read any of the titles in your February Stack. I looked and I've got 16 books I'm planning to read in February and I would be absolutely stunned if I make it through them all.

  6. Thats a pretty good collection you have. I love umrigar's novels and I hope you enjoy them as well

  7. I love the picture of the books all laid out ready to be read. I haven't read any of these and look forward to your reviews.

  8. That looks like a good list! I don't usually make monthly lists, but I definitely try to make sure I'm staying on top of my challenges. :) The only books I for sure want to read this month are a couple for Black History month...but I haven't decided which ones. ;)

  9. I don't make a set list, but it looks like you've got some good ones coming up. I really enjoyed Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.

  10. I love making lists and checking things off. Makes my day when the list is complete.

  11. That's a lot of planning! ;) I rarely decide ahead of time what to read next, unless I am trying to match review with publishing dates.
