February 2024 TBR List

I did better than expected with my January TBR list and read five of the seven listed, plus some SFINCS novellas. So I hope to continue the trend this month with my February 2024 TBR list. Crescent City #3 is now out in the world, so I plan to devote my early February reading time to that chonk. I also know February is a super busy month for new fantasy releases. Thankfully I found my self control and didn’t go overboard, so I think my February 2024 TBR list is manageable.

I also have SFINCS novellas to read, too. While I hope to get to a lot of these books below, I know it probably isn’t realistic. This February 2024 TBR list is really more of a way for me to organize what I have to read. After February I think most of my reads will be from my own shelves. I plan to cut back on ARC requests and stick to a couple of my favorite publishers.
