Happy February, Readers! What are you looking forward to this month? Several people close to me have birthdays this month, so I’m looking forward to doing a lot of celebrating! Of course, there’s also Valentine’s Day, and I don’t think I’m in the minority when I say it’s coming with mixed feelings for me. Honestly, my instinct is to roll my eyes and try to tune everyone out who really celebrates this holiday, but I’m trying to change my perspective this year. I’m trying to take more seriously Romans 12:15, which says to “Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” I could write a whole post just about that (and maybe I will?), but that isn’t what today’s post is for. Today I’m sharing my February TBR list, and a few goals for this month to help me stay on track with the things I want to accomplish this year. I’m intentionally adding more books to my TBR that I realistically think I can read this month, because even now I am not entirely settled on these particular books. I want to leave room for changing my mind or adjusting which yearly reading goal to work on at the moment.
My February TBR
📚 finish re-reading The Selection by Kiera Cass
📚 finish Unfollow by Megan Phelps-Roper
📚 Miracles by C. S. Lewis
📚 Writing with Style by John R. Trimble
📚 Castle of Concrete by Katia Raina
📚 a fiction book set in another US state
📚 a fiction book set in another country
📚 a Christmas-themed book
🎀 Celebrate several family birthdays
🎀 Work on an editing project
🎀 Post 3+ book reviews
🎀 Start a new knitting project
🎀 Survive another Staff Association Fundraiser
🎀 Attend an OKC Philharmonic concert (okay, more a plan than a goal, but definitely something I am looking forward to!)
🎀 Make progress on a few adulting-type things that I need to take care of
I don’t think my goals are overly ambitious this month. It is highly unlikely I will read all of the books listed on my TBR, but I’m okay with that. We’ll see what I want to read when the time comes.
