It’s been a while since I’ve done some good reading. As a personal goal to read more this year, I have decided to share my TBR’s for the month so that I can keep track of what I am reading.
So without any further ado, here’s my February To-Be-Read:
Odriel’s Heirs by Hayley Reese Chow
The brave, burning with fire, harnessed the Dragon’s Rage…
As the Dragon Heir, seventeen-year-old Kaia inherited the power of flame to protect her homeland from a godlike necromancer’s undead army. But after centuries of peace, the necromancer has faded to myth, and the Dragon Heir is feared by the people. Persecuted and cast out, Kaia struggles to embrace and control her seemingly useless gift while confined to her family’s farm.
But when the necromancer’s undead terrorizes the land once again, Kaia runs away to join the battle.
With the help of her childhood rival, the handsome Shadow Heir, and a snarky, cursed cat, Kaia must figure out how to control both her fire and her confidence in time to save Okarria. If she fails, she will sacrifice her family, her new friends, and the enchanting world she has only just begun to see.
And time is running out.
I have received a review request for this book and I’m super excited to start reading this one! A fiction novel and I are best friends! A review for this one will be posted soon! 😉

The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino
Yasuko lives a quiet life, working in a Tokyo bento shop, a good mother to her only child. But when her ex-husband appears at her door without warning one day, her comfortable world is shattered.
When Detective Kusanagi of the Tokyo Police tries to piece together the events of that day, he finds himself confronted by the most puzzling, mysterious circumstances he has ever investigated. Nothing quite makes sense, and it will take a genius to understand the genius behind this particular crime…
This book is recommended to me by my partner. I’m curious to read this one as this will be my first Japanese thriller. Looking forward to being amazed by this one!

The subtle art of not giving a f*** by Mark Manson
In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be “positive” all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.
Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—”not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault.” Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.
Well, when has a ‘self-help’ book not helped? This book has been my TBR read for a while. I am going to look back, take notes, relate it to situations in my life and just enjoy reading the advice by Mark Manson. It will probably take me a while to read it ’cause I genuinely want to make a difference.
