#KillYourTBR2017: What the Bookish Community Read in February

We’re hopelessly smitten with books, which is why our February reading challenge was to read a love story (be it a romance, bromance, or a tale of a familial bond). We started by offering a list of our own recommendations, but we wanted to hear from you, too. We asked the Bookish community to share the books they picked up. Here’s what you guys had to say.

Want to be featured in next month’s roundup? Let us know what books you’re reading for your March TBR challenge by using #KillYourTBR2017 on social media or by leaving a comment here.

“I read somewhat of a coming-of-age love story in The Sun is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon. I love her writing style. The characters Natasha and Daniel had me truly invested in the story and how the universe will affect their relationship.” —Teresa B

“Right now I can think of one romance I’m wanting to read this month, which works perfectly for the challenge. The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill by Julie Klassen. Really looking forward to this one!” —Tarissa

I’m reading two books this month that fit this challenge. The first is a straight-up romance from Eloisa James (Seven Minutes in Heaven) and the other is A Game of Thrones—a book packed with murder, politics, magic, and, yes, love.” —Stephanie

Room absolutely killed me. I’m reading a love story of sorts. It’s called I Liked My Life and one of the POVs is the mother who has died. The other two are her daughter and her widowed husband. This book is both devastatingly sad and hilariously funny.” —Colleen

“I love romance novels, so this was an easy challenge for me. I read Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas. I enjoyed it, and I hope she decides to tell West’s story soon!” —Eloisa

“This month I read Tiffany D. Jackson’s Allegedly. It’s about a girl who is a ward of the state. She gets pregnant and decides to do whatever it takes to stop the government from taking her child from her.” —Susie B.

“I like reading books with my kids. My daughter and I are reading a graphic novel by Faith Erin Hicks called The Nameless City. Love is present in the friendship between the two protagonists, but also the love of one’s home.” —Anna

“I wanted to read a book about the dark side of love. I read Iain Reid’s thriller I’m Thinking of Ending Things. It’s narrated by a girl who wants to end her relationship.” —Melissa P.

“I read The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I read it almost every year; it’s one of my favorite books. ” —Victoria

“I liked the recommendations you gave! I decided to read Aziz Ansari’s Modern Romance.” —Joy
