This month since it is a mere 28 days, I am making my TBR very short. There is also a book I know I am going to read, but I must keep it a secret. Don’t be mad, but you will learn all about it soon. I tried something new recently and I cannot wait to share it with you.
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
My buddy read I am participating in is continuing into February, but can I just say that this books is amazing? Thanks again Amy from Tomes with Tea, Regina from Bookish in Bed and Jenna from J.K. I’m Exploring! for reading this book with me. It has been so much fun.
Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries.

Don’t Forget Me by Victoria Stevens
This comes out February 13th, I received an ARC to review so I plan on getting to this and finishing it the first week of February. From the description I am very excited to pick it up and get to it.

Even the beauty of eastern Australia isn’t enough to take her mind off her mother and the life she had to leave behind in England. But when Hazel meets the friendly, kindhearted Red and his elusive twin, Luca, she begins the slow process of piecing together a new life—and realizes she isn’t the only one struggling with loss. As friendships deepen and love finds its way in, Hazel also learns that when you truly love someone, they are always in your heart.
