February “TBR Talk”

As usual, time seems to be going faster, and I can’t believe it’s already February. This month marks the start of my “TBR Talk” blog posts. As my reading and reviewing opportunities expand, I feel it’s important to branch out and include more variety on my blog.

If you’ve been following me for a bit, you probably know that I struggle with sticking to a set TBR list each month. I still feel compelled to make a list, as it keeps me on track with review copies, but I’m no longer stressing if I stray from what’s in my pile.

In this month’s stack, we have:

BY BIZARRE HANDS by Joe Lansdale:

I’ve been hoarding books by this author for months now, and have yet to take the plunge into his work. Now is the time, and I’m beginning with a short story collection, because you know how I love those. 

FOREST UNDERGROUND by Lydian Faust:

I’ve been following Lydian on social media for awhile, and have had this book on my shelf for way too long. This is one of my Women in Horror Month selections. I also recently purchased a copy of her new poetry collection, Severin, and plan to read that soon. 

GATEWAYS TO ABOMINATION by Matthew M. Bartlett

An author whose work was recommended by John Boden. Enough said. (I’ve had this book for too long and I’m finally making it a priority to read it).

THE SWITCH HOUSE by Tim Meyer

I hoarded several signed books from this author around the holidays, and have yet to start one. I’ve heard so many positive reviews, especially about this novel, so this is where I’m starting. 

LUCID SCREAMS by Red Lagoe

Another Women in Horror Month selection– Red was kind to send me a review copy of her short fiction collection. I’m excited to read this one!

IN DARKNESS DELIGHT: VOL.1: MASTERS OF MIDNIGHT: 

I’ve had this anthology on my shelf for awhile– graciously sent to me for review consideration by Corpus Press and Erin Al-Mehairi. I’ve got to have at least one anthology in my stack each month!

*************************************************************************************

In addition to the books in my stack, I’m finishing up several others that I started toward the end of January, and I’m sure I’ll throw in a few other mood reads along the way. Now that I have a Kindle, I’ve got plenty of e-book reads waiting for me as well.

I’ll wrap this up now, but before I go, I’d like to say thanks again to all of you for reading my reviews and interacting with me on social media. I’m grateful for all of the bookish opportunities that have come my way, and looking forward to what’s ahead as the year progresses.
