A lot of people have been saying how much January is dragging, but it really did fly by. How are we already going to be talking about Februray releases? This year is going to go by quickly if it keeps going like this. January had a lot of books both of us wanted, but how is it in February? Let’s take a look at our Anticipated February releases!
Belle Révolte – Linsey Miller (February 4th)
Before knowing anything about the summary of the book, the cover got my attention right away. I love when female characters prove they’re more than society thinks they should be. Belle Revolte was read now on Netgalley for 24 hours, so I grabbed it when I could. I can’t wait to read it.
Yes No Maybe So – Becky Albertalli & Aisha Saeed (February 4th)
I’ve loved all of the books by Becky Albertalli so far and I think this one will be one I love as well. It will be interesting to see these two characters come together. I’m really curious about this story!
The Gravity of Us – Phil Stamper (February 4th)
Books with characters that have an online following or blog are always ones that I want to read. The Gravity of Us seems like it’s going to be unique though. I can’t imagine what it’s like when your life becomes even more public when your father will be going to Mars.
All the Stars and Teeth – Adalyn Grace (February 4th)
For some reason I still think this is a weird title for a book. Maybe it will make more sense after reading the story. All the Stars and Teeth has pirates and is recommended for fans of Throne of Glass. I definitely need this book!
The Stars We Steal – Alexa Donne (February 4th)
This YA sci-fi is a retelling of Persuasion meets the Bachelor. I really want to read some more sci-fi this year and this sounds like an easy read. It also seems like this is a standalone novel and it’s nice to get some of those in between all the series I’m reading.
Scammed – Kristen Simmons (February 4th)
I really enjoyed The Deceivers last year. It has one of my favorite ingredients, a school for con artists! The first book also had an ending that had me craving the sequel right away. I’m super excited to read this sequel but I have to say I absolutely hate the cover haha.
Heartstopper vol. 3 – Alice Oseman (February 6th)
Do I even have say anything about this one? I loved the first two volumes of Heartstopper and they made it to the very top of my graphic novel favorites of 2019. This GN is so incredibly cute and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
The Sisters Grimm – Menna Van Praag (February 6th)
To be honest, this is the first time I’ve heard of this author, but The Sisters Grimm sounds really good. It sounds like it’s going to be a bit dark. That’s definitely not a problem though. The sisters’ adventure sounds like it will be very interesting!
Night Spinner – Addie Thorley (February 11th)
This fantasy is a retelling of the Hunchback of the Notre Dame. I love that we’re getting retellings of lesser used stories and I think this is going to be a great one. This start of a new series has gotten good early reviews and I hope to love it!
Ink in the Blood – Kim Smejkal (February 11th)
A dark YA fantasy with tattoo magic, how cool does that sound? There also seems to be a lot of queer representation in this one. The cover is also gorgeous!
Of Curses and Kisses – Sendhya Menon (February 18th)
We were both lucky enough to get an e-ARC of this on Netgalley. Retellings are so much fun, so add a boarding school and this one sounds like it will get very interesting!
The Upside of Falling – Alex Light (February 18th)
As a lover of all things contemporary, I know I need this one. I’m a big fan of fake romances and they often lead to some interesting moments. Also, I have to say I love that so many covers are being illustrated these days instead of actual pictures!
The Life Below – Alexandra Monir (February 18th)
I really like The Final Six last year and we got quite the cliffhanger at the end. So of course I can’t wait to read the sequel. The Final Six was pretty underrated and this series has some of the best covers, so please pick these two up!
Hopefully you all already know that this is an amazing read! I read an eARC of this one and it one of the best dark YA stories our there. Please go read my review and get yourself a copy. And then we can all eagerly await the sequel 😉
Buffy the Vampire Slayer vol 2 – Jordie Bellaire (February 25th)
I loved the first volume of the new Buffy the Vampire Slayer GN series so of course I’m looking forward to the sequel. The first one also had some great art and I’m excited to see where the story is taking us.
We Unleash the Merciless Storm – Tehlor Kay Mejia (February 25th)
Okay, so I haven’t read the first book yet. I did get it for Christmas and love the cover. The fact that this sequel will match so well means I need it no matter what. Besides that, people I know who have already read this, really did like it. I’m excited to read these.
Rebelwing – Andrea Tang (February 25th)
This Asian YA SFF story has cyber-sentient dragons. That’s it, that’s all we need to know right! Also a reviewer DNF’ed because of the Jay Kristoff level ‘annoying’ sassy characters and that just get’s me even more excited haha.
The Shadows Between Us – Tricia Levenseller (February 25th)
After loving Warrior of the Wild, I added this one to my wishlist when I found out about it. On top of the stunning cover, the plot sounds amazing. I keep hearing readers saying that this book is addictive and an interesting and unique story. I’m very excited!
So these are all of the February releases we’re curious about! Are you interested in any of these? If you think we missed any, let us know in the comments!
