F/F February TBR

Hi everyone,

It’s February which means it is time for annual readathon F/F February! This month long readathon is run by Imi (@imireviewsbooks on Twitter) and Ellie (@faerieontheshelf) over at Beyond a Bookshelf, and it’s a readathon all about celebrating f/f books! There’s both a reading challenge bingo board and an Instagram challenge, and I’ll be doing both of these. There’s 9 reading prompts, but I’ve also chosen some extra books to switch in and out as I’m feeling very mood-ready this month. So without further ado, here’s my very rough TBR for February!

The bingo board and prompts


An F/F Contemporary, historical and/or romance

The Stars and the Blackness Between Them by Junauda Petrus

An F/F book from 2020 or 2021 debut author

Detransition, Baby by Torrey Peters

An F/F book featuring your favourite trope

The Unbroken by C.L Clark

An F/F audiobook, graphic novel, or multi-media story

A Desolation Called Peace by Arkady Martine (okay slightly cheating with this prompt as I don’t have any audiobooks/graphic novels on hand, so I’m reading an ARC instead!)

An F/F backlist book

Patsy by Nicole Dennis-Benn

A re-read of a book you loved

The Luminous Dead by Caitlin Starling

An F/F sci-fi or fantasy

Seven Devils by Elizabeth May and Laura Lam

A sapphic ownvoices book

Perfect on Paper by Sophie Gonzales

An F/F rec from a friend

Cantoras by Carolina de Robertis

And then here’s a few others I might switch the above out for, depending on my mood!

The Split by Laura Kay

Down Comes the Night by Allison Saft

Under the Udala Trees by Chinelo Okparanta

The Collected Schizophrenias by Esmé Weijun Wang

Cherry Beach by Laura McPhee-Browne

Bestiary by K-Ming Chang

Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers (if my pre-order arrives before the end of Feb!)

Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M Danforth

I’m also wanting to fit in a reread of N.K Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy….sooooo there is not a chance I can fit all this in.

And that’s my (extremely optimistic) TBR for the month! There is no way I can read this many books, I think I’m going to struggle just to get the nine prompts completed as I’ve still got a lot of judging reading to do for the Aurealis Awards. But I’m giving myself lots of options! Have you read any of these? Which one do you think I should read first? Let me know in the comments!

    • I hope you love them all! Oh thank you for the offer!! It really depends when my copy arrives as to when I’ll plan to read it. I live in Australia and my overseas pre-orders have been taking ages to arrive over the pandemic (so far, the record is a whopping 7 months lol!) I would definitely be up for a buddy read but don’t want to hold you back from reading it, I can maybe drop you a note whenever my copy arrives and if you haven’t read it yet, we can buddy read? Fingers crossed it won’t be another 7 months late situation… 🤞
