Top 5 Thursday: February TBR

It’s Top 5 Thursday, where as the week is winding down, I tell you the Top 5 Things I’m looking forward to in regards to the bookish world. 

Today I want to discuss the the Top 5 books I hope to read in the month of February.

  1. The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry:    I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book. You can’t go wrong with romance and time travel, right?! 
  2. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard:    I am currently reading this book! I mysteriously and most graciously received this Red Queen Hidden Gem (#RQHiddenGem), a glass case with an advance reader’s copy of Glass Sword, from Epic Reads and HarperCollins

    IT IS HONESTLY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK SWAG/GIFT I HAVE EVER RECEIVED AND OWN. Thank you again to everyone at Team Epic Reads and Harper for this wonderful gift. 

  3.  Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel:   I started this book in 2015, and I promise you, I am at least 50% through it, but I just can’t push myself to finish it. Station Eleven is not bad, it’s actually really, really good. So good that my brain refuses for it to ever end. Well brain, you’re finishing Station Eleven by the end of February…you got it! Also, I’m reading the UK hardcover version, because it’s prettier than the USA cover. 
  4. The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine:  I have met C.J. more than I can count on both my hands. I own all her books, all signed and personalized. They ALL sound badass with a badass heroine. C.J. is an extraordinary author, and she can fangirl with the best of us when it comes to adoring awesome authors. Whenever I hear C.J. speak at a book event, she makes me want to be a writer–she’s sassy, witty, strong, and kickass. During the 2015 Southern Festival of Books in Nashville, I won an ARC of The Shadow Queen (WOOT! WOOT!). the shadow queenIt has literally been in my tote bag (which I use as my purse, btw) since last Autumn. I can’t wait to read it this month. And be sure to pre-order this beautiful cover book. If you are one of the first 200 people to pre-order the book from Parnassus Books in Nashville, you will not only receive a signed (and personalized copy, if requested) book, but you will also receive an awesome swag pack. Pre-order HERE.
  5. First Kisses and Other Misfortunes by Kimberly Karalius:     This is a FREE e-book novella that provides the story of Nico and Martin’s relationship!!!celebration dance the middle sue heck eden sher

    You guys, IT’S FREE and we get to learn about Nico and Martin’s hopeful relationship. What more can fans of Love Fortunes and Other Disasters ask for?!!! NOTHING, WE CAN’T ASK FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN THEIR LOVE STORY!!! The Grimbaud Life continues and I’m on a hot air balloon floating up to happiness!!! 

♥ I’m a sucker for beautiful covers *swoons*
