January got crazy you guys! I don’t know if it was because of the turn of the year or what but I was super busy and this month flew! And this month Sarah Maas’ book A Court of Silver Flames is being released on the 16th. I’m really looking forward to the next installment for this series. If you haven’t read the Court of Thorns and Roses books – Do it! I’m going to start rereading the series before the next book comes out. It is easily one of my favorite series of all times.
It is crazy to think that Valentine’s Day is just a few days away! I’ve heard of some really cute and fantastic plans that people do for the love holiday. My husband and I definitely go the opposite for such a love filled day. We watch the movie Boondock Saints and usually get take-out food so I won’t have to cook. It is a fantastic tradition that we started about 10 years ago and it is still going strong! Who doesn’t want to watch a gun slinger movie, eat wonderful take-out, and curl up in your Pjs on Valentine’s Day? What are some things that you do for Valentine’s Day? Anything special? Maybe totally random and not Valentine related at all like mine?
I hope everyone’s month turns out wonderful and that you all find some awesome books to read while you aren’t writing your Valentine cards. Check out my list below of the top 5 books I’m looking forward to reading in the upcoming month!
My Reading List for February 2021:
A Court of Silver Flames By Sarah J. Maas
Nesta Archeron has always been prickly-proud, swift to anger, and slow to forgive. And ever since being forced into the Cauldron and becoming High Fae against her will, she’s struggled to find a place for herself within the strange, deadly world she inhabits. Worse, she can’t seem to move past the horrors of the war with Hybern and all she lost in it.
The one person who ignites her temper more than any other is Cassian, the battle-scarred warrior whose position in Rhysand and Feyre’s Night Court keeps him constantly in Nesta’s orbit. But her temper isn’t the only thing Cassian ignites. The fire between them is undeniable, and only burns hotter as they are forced into close quarters with each other.
Meanwhile, the treacherous human queens who returned to the Continent during the last war have forged a dangerous new alliance, threatening the fragile peace that has settled over the realms. And the key to halting them might very well rely on Cassian and Nesta facing their haunting pasts.
Against the sweeping backdrop of a world seared by war and plagued with uncertainty, Nesta and Cassian battle monsters from within and without as they search for acceptance-and healing-in each other’s arms.
The Atlantean Empire By Elisabetta Panzica
Sahar never asked to be Queen, never wanted the title, all she wanted was to be like every other girl. She wanted the freedom to marry the man she loved, the man she had loved her entire life. However, fate had another plan for her. In this turbulent tale of love, war, and upheaval. Sahar finds that she must choose between love and duty, and the choice she makes will change her forever.
Lore By Alexandra Bracken
Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality.
Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world in the wake of her family’s sadistic murder by a rival line, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory. For years she’s pushed away any thought of revenge against the man–now a god–responsible for their deaths.
Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek out her help: Castor, a childhood friend of Lore believed long dead, and a gravely wounded Athena, among the last of the original gods.
The goddess offers an alliance against their mutual enemy and, at last, a way for Lore to leave the Agon behind forever. But Lore’s decision to bind her fate to Athena’s and rejoin the hunt will come at a deadly cost–and still may not be enough to stop the rise of a new god with the power to bring humanity to its knees.
Sherlock Holmes By Arthur Conan Doyle
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the series of short stories that made the fortunes of the Strand magazine, in which they were first published, and won immense popularity for Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The detective is at the height of his powers and the volume is full of famous cases, including ‘The Red-Headed League’, ‘The Blue Carbuncle’, and ‘The Speckled Band’. Although Holmes gained a reputation for infallibility, Conan Doyle showed his own realism and feminism by having the great detective defeated by Irene Adler – the woman – in the very first story, ‘A Scandal in Bohemia’.
The Spine of the World By R.A. Salvatore
Spending time in the unimaginable torture chambers of the Abyss for even a day would be enough to break even the heartiest soul, and the barbarian Wulfgar was there for years. When he returns, his friends find him a changed man, and not changed for the better. But Wulfgar’s road to redemption is one he must travel on his own, even if it leads to the bottle.
