February 2021 TBR

feb-tbrThe day is ending,
The night is descending;
The marsh is frozen,
The river dead.

Through clouds like ashes
The red sun flashes
On village windows
That glimmer red.
–  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Afternoon in February


krakenKraken by China Miéville

Summary: Deep in the research wing of the Natural History Museum is a prize specimen, something that comes along much less often than once in a lifetime: a perfect, and perfectly preserved, giant squid. But what does it mean when the creature suddenly and impossibly disappears?

For curator Billy Harrow it’s the start of a headlong pitch into a London of warring cults, surreal magic, apostates and assassins. It might just be that the creature he’s been preserving is more than a biological rarity: there are those who are sure it’s a god.

A god that someone is hoping will end the world.

I didn’t know what to put on my TBR this month, other than the novel I want to read for the Japanese Literature Challenge, so I assigned each book in my entire physical TBR (which isn’t actually that big when I take out the Discworld novels) a number and used a random generator to pick which book I’m reading next.

I have actually tried to read Kraken before but I was in a reading slump at the time and I couldn’t concentrate on it so I put it away (for a couple of years) and now I’m ready to return to it.
