February, the Month of Book Love Plenty

Oh February, you are really bursting with book love.  My list alone is insane with new publications I want to read.  Included in the list is Elly Griffiths' The Stone Circle, her 11th Ruth Galloway book, even though it's only out in the UK this month and not until May here in the states.  The many fans of the Ruth Galloway series are waiting on pins and needles for this one, so buying it through Book Depository or another UK distributor or bookstore might be a necessity.  Also included is a non-mystery book by Alan Brennert, Daughter of Moloka'i.  Brennert's book preceding this one  is entitled Moloka'i (published 2004), and it is in my top five favorite books ever, so I'm especially excited there is finally a follow-up to it.  The beloved and missed Bill Crider is on the list with That Old Scoundrel Death, the last Dan Rhodes mystery he penned. There are so many other amazing reads to celebrate this month.  Here are some you might want to consider:
