Hi everyone! I’m a little late again, but today I wanted to share the books I want to read in March! I didn’t stick to my February TBR at ALL, so I’m hoping that I can at least stick to part of this one. I definitely want to read all of these books, and lately I’ve been listening to a lot of non-fiction so I’m thinking I’ll probably end up with a few more of those that aren’t on this TBR.
The City of Dusk by Tara Sim – I was so excited to be approved for an ARC of this book, and I’m actually just under 50% through this one. Its the first in a new adult fantasy trilogy from the same author who wrote Scavenge the Stars. I love the premise of four magical realms that all have a hand in one city, but the realms have been closed off by the gods so the city is dying and the four heirs of the four realms need to stand together and save their city. It’s been fascinating so far, and I can’t wait to see where this story goes.
Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May – This is another ARC that I was so excited to get because it sounds so unique! It’s set on an island after World War I following a woman who is on the island to settler her father’s estate. She doesn’t want anything to do with magic, but ends up being pulled in anyway by her best friend. It sounds interesting and I’m just really hoping I enjoy it, a lot of early reviews have been pretty positive!
Only a Monster by Vanessa Len – The synopsis says this is Passenger meets This Savage Song, and it sounds so interesting! Joan is sent to stay with her mother’s family in London, and it’s meant to be a perfect trip. She even meets a super cute guy! Unfortunately, she learns that not only is she a monster with hidden powers, but the cute boy she’s dating is a monster hunter determined to bring her family down. This one also has a lot of hype and really good ratings, so I’m very curious about it!
Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America by Ijeoma Oluo – Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of non-fiction, and for what I think is the first time I’m actually adding a non-fiction to my actual TBR instead of them being completely unplanned (although if I’m being honest, I’ll probably still have a bunch of unplanned reads). This one is about the history of while male America and how it’s cost us socially, economically, and politically. I read the into on my Kindle and it just sounds so interesting and like it’ll really get me fired up.
The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea by Axie Oh – This one has been on my radar for a while, and it’s finally released! Originally I was just going to download it on my kindle, but then I realized that I wanted to own a physical copy so I could have the stunning cover on my shelves! This is a retelling of a Korean legend called ‘The Tale of Shim Cheong’ and follows a mortal girl who sacrifices herself to the Sea God in place of the girl her brother loves, and sets out to wake the Sea God and end the storms that are killing her people.
Saint Death’s Daughter by C.S.E. Cooney – I’m really hoping that this is as snarky and sarcastic as the synopsis makes it seem! This follows a girl named Miscellaneous (Lanie, for short) who was born into a family of assassins. The only problem is she’s got an allergy to violence and bloodshed, and also has the ability to bring the dead back to life which doesn’t really help her family out. To make it worse, her and her sister are about to lose their ancestral home due to family debt. Ratings have actually been pretty meh on this one, but I’m hoping I’ll enjoy it!
What books are you hoping to read in March? I’d love to chat!
