Hey Book Nerds!
As you can tell by the title, today’s post is my February TBR. I’m sure you are wondering where my January Wrap-Up is, but since it is still January, that post won’t be up until tomorrow or Monday. Anyway, here is my February TBR.
I have a total of 5 books that I am hoping to read during the month. Two of them are for school, two are books I am buddy reading, and the other book is one I chose from my TBR Jar.
Books for school:
Buffalo Bird Woman’s Garden: Agriculture of the Hidatsa Indians by Gilbert L. Wilson
For those of you that don’t know, I am majoring in Archaeology, so I have to take mostly Anthropology classes. One of the classes I am taking this semester is called “First Farmers”, so that deals a lot with plant and animal domestication, as well as the first farmers. So, for that class, we have to read this book and write a book review on it. It is due in March so I am using February to read and review it. This book is 129 pages, and most of those pages have small images, charts, or full page images on them, so it shouldn’t be too bad.
Awatimarka: The Ethnoarchaeology of an Andean Herding Community by Lawrence A. Kuznar
This book is one that I also have to read and review for my Zooarchaeology class, which studies animal bones. This review is also due in March, and much like Buffalo Bird Woman’s Garden, this book is very short- 160 pages, to be exact. I don’t have the physical copy of the book yet, so I’m not sure if the book is full of pictures like Buffalo Bird Woman’s Garden or not.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I am buddy reading this book with my friend Sarah from MickeyBetweenThePages on YouTube. After we did a buddy read together this month, we had so much fun and decided to do more buddy reads. This month, because of Valentine’s Day, we decided to read Anna and the French Kiss. Sarah has been dying to read this book and I definitely need to read it, considering I’ve had the book since it came out. This book is 372 pages, so we will most likely read 3 chapters a day and have the book finished by the 15th of the month. I am looking forward to this book and really hope I enjoy it.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
I am buddy reading this book February 17th-29th with 12 other awesome book people (I would link their information below but it would take way too long to do that, so instead I will tag them in my Instagram post when I put that up: @brittanynm14). This book is a 416 page YA fantasy novel that I am a little afraid to read. I don’t think I have ever read a fantasy novel before, so hopefully I will like this one. I wasn’t even planning on reading it at all until they all mentioned it and how much they all wanted to read it, so I thought “why not”, and bought the book. Despite my slight fear, I am actually really excited to read this book. We are reading 3 chapters a day, except for on the 29th when we are reading 4 chapters, and then discussing it each day.
TBR Jar Pick:
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
So, around midnight last night, I was bored and decided to make a TBR Jar. I have a few TBR Jars at home, but I didn’t have one for the books that I have with me at school. So I made one last night and put the 22 pieces of paper in a cute owl mug and decided ot pick one to read in February. I was actually very surprised when I chose this book out of my TBR Jar. I thought for sure I would’ve picked a Nicholas Sparks book, since I have 4 of his books in my jar. However, I am actually pretty excited to read this book and see what all the hype is about. This a 368 page YA fantasy novel, so it looks like this will be the month of fantasy for me! However, since I have 4 other books that I have to read in February, it won’t be a big deal if I don’t get to this book this month. I only chose it if I either finish all 4 of the books and want something else to read, or to have as a fun read for when I’m not reading the other books.
Hopefully this reading month will be a great one for us all. Leave a comment telling me what your February TBR is, I’d love to hear about it!
