Every February, I like to read romance. It gets me in the mood for Valentine’s Day and it allows me to target the romance books sitting on my TBR. I wanted to share all the books I want to read in February and once February ends, I will write a recap post where I review the romance books I ended up reading. I have set high expectations this month, so I’m not sure if I will get to everything. Here are all the romance books I ideally would like to read this month
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
I read Eleanor & Park back in 2015. This had been sitting on my re-read TBR for a while. Eleanor & Park written by Rainbow Rowell is about a budding high school romance between Eleanor and Park. I re-read Fangirl last year and I realized I didn’t love the book versus what I remembered several years ago. I’m curious if Eleanor & Park will hold up or if I will feel the same way as I felt for Fangirl.
The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling
I had The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling on my Spooky TBR last year, although I ended up not getting to read this. I’m debating between reading this now or saving it for this October. The Ex Hex is centered around Vivienne Jones who puts a curse on her ex-boyfriend that should have been mild. However, her ex returns to their town and all hell breaks loose. As mentioned, I may save this for Fall, but I have no doubt that I will read The Ex Hex this year.
Well Met by Jen DeLuca
A romance that takes place at a local Renaissance festival? Sign me up. Well Met follows Emily and Simon. Emily is roped into signing up for the Renaissance festival while Simon’s family runs the festival. I have had this on my TBR for a long time, so I’m glad I’m finally going to read this.
One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London
If the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise were to include plus-size women, that’s the premise of One to Watch. Bea Schumacher is a plus-size fashion influencer who loves the reality TV show Main Squeeze. When she’s contacted by Main Squeeze to be a part of their show, Bea agrees. She doesn’t think she will actually find love unless what if she does. While I’m personally not a fan of the Bachelor, I think this book will still appeal to me.
Get a Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
I hear so many good things about Talia Hibbert and her books. Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek who creates a list of things she wants to do. Chloe meets Red and she enlists him to help her accomplish all the things she wants to do. I like the chronically ill representation as there are so many people out there with either chronic pain or chronic illness. Representation is so important.
This is an ambitious TBR for February. I’m most excited to read Well Met, One to Watch, and Get a Life, Chloe Brown.
