February TBR

I didn’t get through as many books as I’d thought I would in January but there’s plenty of year left and plenty of books still to read! I did enjoy those I read, there just didn’t seem to be a lot of time to read in.

On my TBR for February are…

The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith

The Unwritten Library in Hell- a neutral space in Hell where all stories unfinished by their authors are kept. Claire, Head Librarian of the Unwritten Wing, is charged not only with repairing and organising books, but also with preventing the escape of restless stories which materialise as characters. When a Hero escapes from his book and goes in search of his author, Claire must track and capture him with the help of former muse and current assistant Brevity, and nervous demon courier Leto.But the simple retrieval goes horrifyingly wrong when the terrifyingly angelic Ramiel attacks them, convinced that they hold the Devil’s Bible, a mighty weapon in the power struggle between Heaven and Hell. And so it falls to the librarians to find a book with the power to reshape the boundaries between Heaven, Hell…and Earth.

I was sent a review copy of this stunningly gorgeous paperback and I’m really looking forward to this one. It sounds like exactly the type of book I’m going to love (and I adore books set in magical libraries)

A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson

The case is closed. Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it.

But having grown up in the same small town that was consumed by the crime, Pippa Fitz-Amobi isn’t so sure. When she chooses the case as the topic for her final project, she starts to uncover secrets that someone in town desperately wants to stay hidden. And if the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth . . . ?

This one has been sat on my shelf for ages waiting to be read. It’s part of my ‘reading books I already own’ target I set myself for this year.

The Last Human by Zack Jordan

Sarya is the galaxy’s worst nightmare: a Human.

But most days, she doesn’t feel like the most terrifying creature in the galaxy. No, most days, she’s got other things on her mind. Like hiding her identity among the hundreds of alien species roaming the corridors of Watertower Station. Or making sure her adoptive mother doesn’t casually eviscerate one of their neighbors. Again.

And most days, she can almost accept that she’ll never know the truth about why humanity was deemed too dangerous to exist, or whether she really is – impossibly – the lone survivors of a species destroyed a millennium ago.
That is, until an encounter with a bounty hunter leaves her life and her perspective shattered.

Thrown into the universe at the helm of a stolen ship, Sarya begins to uncover an impossible truth. What if humanity’s death and her own existence are simply two moves in a demented cosmic game, one that might offer the thing she wants most in the universe – a second chance for herself, and one for humanity.

I was sent a proof of this awesome sounding book, I have high hopes for it so it had to make this months TBR.
