February is the shortest month, but that doesn’t mean there should be a shortage of great reads! This February, we’ve got a killer lineup of fire reads to help you push through the winter. From female gladiators to murder-mysteries to Shakespeare-retellings, we have really got you covered.

 

2/7: Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza: From debut author Rhoda Belleza comes this epic sci-fi fantasy about a crown princess determined to avenge her family and claim her throne, a war refugee falsely accused of murder, and an epic adventure in a whole new galaxy.

 

2/7: Crazy Messy Beautiful by Carrie Arcos: When your namesake is Pablo Neruda—the greatest love poet of all time—finding “the one” should be easy. But as Neruda begins to fall faster and harder than ever before, he must confront the reality that love is crazier, messier, and more beautiful than he ever realized.

 

2/14: We Are Okay by Nina LaCour: From the award-winning author of Hold Still comes an achingly beautiful novel about grief and the enduring power of friendship. We Are Okay is a heartbreaking, beautiful book about grief, family, friendship, and hope.

 

2/14: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton: This startlingly original Middle-East-meets-Wild-West fantasy reveals what happens when a dream deferred explodes—in the fires of rebellion, of romantic passion, and the all-consuming inferno of a girl finally embracing her power. Now in paperback!

 

2/14: The Valiant by Lesley Livingston: Fallon is the daughter of a proud Celtic king and the younger sister of the legendary fighter Sorcha. When Fallon was just a child, Sorcha was killed by the armies of Julius Caesar. And on the eve of her seventeenth birthday, she is captured to train to fight for the very same armies.

 

2/21: Blacktop #3: Frank  by LJ Alonge: The third book in LJ ALonge’s action-packed basketball series set on the courts of Oakland, CA

 

2/28: A Good Idea by Cristina Moracho: Fin and Betty’s close friendship survived Fin’s ninth-grade move from their coastal Maine town to Manhattan. Calls, letters, and summer visits continued to bind them together, and in the fall of their senior year, they both applied to NYU, planning to reunite for good as roommates. Then Betty disappears.

 

2/28: Well, That Was Awkward by Rachel Vail: Gracie has never felt like this before.  One day, she suddenly can’t breathe, can’t walk, can’t anything—and the reason is standing right there in front of her, all tall and weirdly good-looking: AJ.
