I did ok with my last TBR… I think (post coming soon) so let’s keep things going. I have a few tours next month that I need to read for and a couple of games through TBR and Beyond Book Club and Reading Rivalry.
Books I Have to Read
Just a couple of book club reads I want to get to this month.
I got A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A Brown as a Christmas present this year and I was so excited I wanted to read it right away, but I found out that it was going to be a group read for TBR and Beyond in March, so I’ve held off until now.
These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong was in a Fairyloot sub box and it is beyond gorgeous. It’s another one I plan to read with TBR and Beyond. I don’t know much about it other than it’s a Romeo & Juliet retelling.
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab is a reread, but I want to reread the first two books before reading my eARC of Bridge City (book #3). It’s also part of the middle grade readalong in TBR and Beyond.
The Carrow Haunt by Darcy Coates only recently came on my radar when it became the buddy read for March in the TBR and Beyond Horror readalong. I no little about this other than it’s a horror and looks like it has to do with a haunting – which seems to be one of my preferred subgenres in horror.
Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz is the buddy read for Reading Rivalry and I’d like to get the bonus points for reading it this month – plus I’ve owned it for forever now and should probably decide if I actually like Melissa’s writing and want to continue with the series.
From Blood and Ash is a reread for me, but it’s also part of a readalong in TBR and Beyond, plus I want to reread the first two books before The Crown of Gilded Bones (book #3) comes out in April. I devoured this the first time around and I know I’ll do it again – it’ll be a nice break from my physical reads since I’ll likely listen to the audio again.
ARCs as Part of Tours
This month I have a lot of ARCs I need to read for tour hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours. I’m behind on them and only have one read for next month, so hopefully I can get to them all!
I don’t know much about The Castle School: For Troubled Girls other than it’s a mystery that takes place at a boarding school. The Tour is from March 1-7th.
I Think I Love You sounds like a cute contemporary romance with queer rep. I’m super excited about this one. The Tour takes place from March 1st -7th.
Sweet & Bitter Magic has been on my radar for a while, and I had put this on my wish list for tours. This fantasy has queer rep and sounds super interesting. This tour takes place from March 8th-14th
Fragile Remedy is a queer science fiction dystopian that I am excited to read. The tour takes place from March 8th-15th.
Magic Mutant Nightmare Girl is a fantasy with queer and anxiety rep – oh and has magical girls (hello Sailor Moon vibes?!). This cover screams “read me Heather” so of course when we got it as a tour I had to put my name in! This tour runs from March 8th-15th too.
The last eARC, and the last tour of the month, is The Accidental Apprentice. This will be the first middle grade I’ve read of Amanda Foody, but I loved Ace of Shades so I’m super excited for this one. This tour takes place from March 30th-April 5th.
Backlist (aka hopes and dreams)
Now for all the books that I hope I’ll have time to get to, or will be my breaks with audiobooks.
A lot of my students are reading Jurassic Park for their book review and I don’t want to get spoiled – yes I’ve already watched the movie, but we all know that doesn’t necessarily mean we know what happens in the book. I’ve had this on my list forever, let’s say 4 years now, and it’s about time I get to it.
I had an eARC of The Dating Plan, and had thought it had come out in February, but now that I’m putting my TBR together I see it’s March 16th. If I get the time, I’ll pick it up. It’s a fake dating romance, and that is one of my favourite romance tropes.
Truthwitch is the last one I hope to get to this month. It’s one I’ve had on my shelf forever, and I even have Windwitch, but after the cover redesigns I’ve been hesitant to pick up the rest of the books. I’m hoping by reading this it’ll tell me if I want to own the whole series and continue reading OR if I want to donate the two I have and DNF the series. I’ve heard it’s amazing though so I hope I like it – even with the cover change.
Of course I’ve listed another 15 books again this month! Because of course I have to be overambitious despite worrying that I wont get to them all or I’ll get sidetracked and read something else. But there you have it, my plans for March. Fingers crossed we get to them.
Have you read any of these? What did you think? Do you plan on reading any of them? Let me know in the comments below.
