February Birthday List
3. Geography: A SEAL's Seduction by Weber, Tawny 2/15
Read a book whose author, character, or setting is from Israel. Other options: You may also read a book set in the Middle East. Israel is (in)famous for religious and political strife. Thus, you can also read a book about religion or politics/politicians or with characters in the armed forces. The national flag of Israel is blue and white - you may read a book with a predominantly blue or white cover.
4. Groundhog Day (Feb 2): Waiting For Love (The McCarthys of Gansett Island, #8) by Force, Marie 2/19
In the movie Groundhog Day, the Bill Murray character is doomed to relive the same day over and over again, leading to shenanigans, laughter, tears, and ultimately, a life re-examination. Read a book involving life-altering choices or time, either time travel, a time loop, or a historical/futuristic/non-contemporary time.
5. Superbowl Sunday (Feb 3): Hip Check (New York Blades, #10) by Martin, Deirdre 2/29
Are you ready for some footbaaaaaall! Here in the States, Superbowl Sunday is practically considered a holy day for some: whether you're an actual fan of the sport, the half-time show, or the commercials XD. Read a sports-themed book: athletes, sportscasters, sports reporters, agents, etc. Or if you're like me (most of the time) and just like to watch the half-time show and commercials, read a story where the character is a musician or involved in the entertainment or advertising industry.
6. Lunar New Year (Feb 10):  Her New Year's Fortune by Leigh, Allison 2/28 
It's the Year of the Snake! Lunar New Year is extremely popular across the Asian culture. Read a book with a main character who's Asian, or by an Asian author, or any book related to snakes, dragons (a mythical creature found in many Asian folktales), fireworks, or good fortune. OR read a manga.
7. Valentine's Day (Feb 14): Courted by the Texas Millionaire by Green, Crystal 2/25
Read a book with hearts on the cover or a book about high school/college sweethearts, or young love (yes, YA counts).

Read a fairy tale! Or read a retelling of a fairy tale, or a book about faerie, fairies, or the fey.
9. Chocolate Lovers' Month; When Chocolate Is Not Enough by Harrington, Nina 2/4
Read a book where chocolate, sweets, desserts, or baked goods is the main theme or is on the cover/title, or a book where a character is obsessed with sweets/chocolate/etc. OR read a book that you consider a guilty pleasure. XD
