February 2019 TBR

At the beginning of each month (or close to it), I create a list of some of the books I plan to read so that I can keep track of the various reading challenges and projects that I am undertaking, but also so I can look back and congratulate (or berate) myself when I see how much I was able to accomplish. Below is the list if you’d like to see what I am planning. Red highlight indicates I have since read the book.
