February TBR!

Eunoia - Christian Bök The People of Paper - Salvador Plascencia House of Leaves - Mark Z. Danielewski The Songlines - Bruce Chatwin The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

This month I have to focus almost entirely on school-related reading, but I'm actually really excited for most of it!


For my experimental contemporary lit class, I'm going to be reading Eunoia by Christian Bok, People of Paper by Salvador Plascencia, and House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. And, for my travel writing course, I will be reading Bruce Chatwin's The Songlines. I will be posting reviews for each of these toward the end of the month.


I'm also going to reread John Green's The Fault in Our Stars. It just has to happen. I'm unreasonably excited for the movie coming out this summer, and would love to re-experience the book beforehand. 


I'm still making my way through The Return of the King, but with all the heavy, analytical reading that I have to do this month, I think that it's wisest to put it on pause.


What are you planning to read this month?
