February 2014 TBR

Alright, let's be real here, friends, February is going to look bad compared to January no matter what I read. I apparently really like Goodreads book clubs (probably because I don't have to try and talk to people face to face, I'm actually not kidding), and I'm probably not going to do stuff for all of the clubs this months, but I do have a vague idea of what I want to read this month.

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) by Richelle Mead
I started reading this on already, not very far in at all, and it's mostly because of the movie and because every person on YouTube has read it.

A Wizard of Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle #1) by Ursula K. Le Guin
This is for a goodreads book club, Sword and Laser, and I'm not sure how I'll feel about it yet from what people are saying, but it sounds interesting. And I've never read anything by this author.

House of Leaves by Mark. K Danielewski
Book club read, Booktube Reading Buddies, and it's so big and scary that I felt like reading it with some people might be less daunting. It's also apparently genuinely weird and creepy so I'm really curious to really get into it. (Have you read it? What did you think? Any tips?) They're also reading The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and I've been dying to read this book since a random guy in Powells in Portland told me I had to (random stranger book recs are a little weird but very awesome).

I also may have gone on a mini buying binge, like a beginning of the year thing, so I have a bunch of comics / graphic novels to read and other things. So here is a list of random books I might read, I am, as usual, surrounded by books so who knows what I'll be in the mood for:

  • Locke and Key: Vol. 1 by Joe Hill
  • Saga, Vol. 1 & 2 by Brian K. Vaughan
  • The Einstein Intersection by Samuel R. Delany 
  • Boxers & Saints by Gene Luen Lang


  1. I read some of the Earthsea series when I was about 13/14, and I remember it being very mature for my age as I was used to YA fantasy stuff. Anyway, I did really enjoy it and would love to read it again.
    I think you have to push through for some of it, but it's worth it.

    If you like screen adaptions, I do not recommend the Studio Ghibli adaption of the series as it is absolute shite, but there was a live action adaption with Shawn Ashmore in it a few years ago that wasn't too awful.

    1. Yeah I haven't gotten very far into the first book yet, but I'm going to keep pushing ahead.

      And that's good to know, adaptations can always be a little touch or go most of the time. Thanks! x
