February TBR | 2019

Hello and welcome to my February TBR, my first one of 2019. Last month I didn’t feel like making a TBR because I wanted to focus on reading some classics and finishing the books I started. Since I am finished with those I thought it was time to make one. I am going to make this post short and sweet so without more of a delay, here is my TBR!

Save the Date by Morgan Matson

Save the Date

This book I am kinda ashamed to still have on my TBR. I picked it up when I met Morgan Matson at BookCon 2018. She was so nice and lovely, we had a great laugh about my corgi lanyard. I have read and loved previous books by her, but for some reason I have not picked this up. I think it is because I have not been in the mood for a contemporary. I think I am finally in the mood for it though. I want something light after all the intense reads of last month.

World Without End by Ken Follett

World Without End (Kingsbridge, #2)

This is the next book in the Kingsbridge series, which I started last year due to the Haul | Bookseller Picks My Books post I did. I ended up loving the first book, a very large historical fiction. I ended up going out right away and getting the second book, but I did not feel like reading such a large book right away. So, I decided now is finally the time since the 3rd book has finally came out in paperback and I can get that if I end up liking this one just as much.

The Stand by Stephen King

So it seems that I will be reading quite a few large books this upcoming months and I am not sure how well that is going to go, but I am going to do my best to at least finish this TBR jar pick. I have been wanting to read this for sometime, but since it is so large I have been putting it off because I felt like I did not have the time to dedicate to it. While I do have the paperback edition, the cover you can see below, I think I might get the ebook edition so I can carry it around with me without having the weight of it.

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson as of recently has a lot of hype surrounding it. So going into the book I had high hopes, so I was slimly worried it was over hyped. But I am very happy to say that I was not disappointed at all by this book.

The two major things I liked the book were the relationships Matson builds between her characters. I love the interactions between Andie and her father, friends, and Clark. Side note: I love Clark he is a book nerd, whovian, into Starwars, and is a total sweetheart! I was very vested in these characters. The friendships seemed real; they seemed to actually care about one another. The issues that they face all seemed realistic and tears formed a few times while reading this. The second thing I liked was the idea of no matter how much you plan unexpected things could happen. Things can be bad, seem like your life is falling apart, but it shows that good opportunities can pop up that would never have been available to you before. This is not just something that happens in a book, but can happen in the real world as well. I think it is wonderful that Matson is talking about this.

I would highly recommend this book, it is an adorable young adult contemporary read that I flew through. I have given it a 5 out of 5 stars. I say if you are only slightly interested in the summary of this book to give it a shot. I am happy that I listened to the hype that it deserves to have and I plan on picking up some of her other books in the future.
