February 2017 TBR

Standard

Since I didn’t finish most of the books I had set out to read for January (and I’m NO QUITTER!), I’ll transfer them to this month.

ALSO, This month I’m honouring Black History Month by focusing on reading books by African-American authors.

A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines
The Illegal by Lawrence Hill

My backlist (the shame!):
The Happiness Project: Or Why I Spent a Year Singing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun by Gretchen Rubin
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

OFF MY BOOKSHELF:
The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill

Book Riot, Read Harder CHALLENGE:
Read a book about politics, in your country or another
Big Girls Don’t Cry: The Election That Changed Everything for American Women by Rebecca Traister
Read a book originally published in the decade you were born
A Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

We’ll see if I can handle all of these, plus whatever I need to read for my new job! What’s on your reading list this month?
