I was so busy writing and drawing, I almost forgot to announce this month’s theme.
February is too easy with all that’s going on this month.
It’s Black History month.
Then tomorrow is Groundhog’s Day.
The SuperBowl seems to have migrated over from January permanently.
Of course, Cupid’s Birthday *looks at Quentin Darrows*, Valentine’s Day.
Then, this year is special with that extra Day added on:
(my official un-birthday for this year)
So many different themes are available. I could go for the obvious romance, but I don’t want to be that easy–combining Valentines with the Super Bowl, I did lean towards romantic erotic novels starring faux footballers (not you McLane, though I could write one) and, admittedly, I do have some in the Kindle. I should read something historical. Honestly, I probably would add more to my DNF list than actually read if I went in that direction. I would LOVE to read some diverse MC’s, but I read those anyway, though they are difficult to find. Have never seen an adult or YA Groundhog Day book. Add Leap Day to that list–not going to count the movie novelizations should there be any.
But I’m not doing any of those.
What is February?
That’s right. The shortest month of the year, every year.
Going with that thought, I am pulling out my short story compilations. I won’t reread my older Stephen King ones (Skeleton Crew and Different Seasons) but am hoping to find my hardback copy of Full Dark, No Stars. I also have Joe Hill and Owen King (maybe I have a Stephen King theme going after all since they are his sons).
Then, of course, to overlook the Tiny Stories books would be a crime. (The first one was read a few years ago. Just fun.)
I’ll also take any compilations or novella recs you all have…in case I run out of tales.
Thanks in advance.
*SHORTY FEBRUARY* it is! As soon as I finish the last bit of The Oddifts…because, again, I’ve been busy writing and drawing on a story for a project I forgot about.
Happy Reading! And please share what you plan to read this month.
