March is going to be an exciting month for books. Join me in a coffee whilst I share some of the March releases I am most excited for.
This week I’m drinking more coffee from The Barn. This time it’s the fruity El Diamonte from Honduras. Oof, it’s a good one.
Genesis by Brandon Reichs – I have been waiting for this since the ending of Nemesis, which was one of those books you get to the end of and scream “where are all the pages?” I can’t wait to jump back into the adventures of Min and Noah and find out where they go from THAT ending and what is going to happen to the rest of Fire Lake.
State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury – Mel is the Queen. She broke me with The Sin Eater’s Daughter trilogy and I am ready for her to come and break me some more. Mel’s world building is exquisite and I cannot wait to immerse myself in another of her worlds.
Out of the Blue by Sophie Cameron – I have heard so many things about this that I can’t believe it isn’t out in the world yet. I was sold when I read the line “Ten days after Jaya Mackenzie’s mum dies, angels start falling from the sky”. The merging of fantasy with the real world and the exploration of grief sound fascinating and I can’t wait to read this one.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – Is there anyone who is not anticipating this book? I have heard such amazing things about this book. It is a story of magic and power and danger, and a girl who challenges the monarchy, and it sounds perfect.
The Wicked Deep by Shea Earnshaw – I already had this book on my radar and then Shea joined #SundayYA to chat about the book, and the more I heard about it the more I realised I need it in my life. It has been pitched as Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic meet the Salem Witch trials – could anything be more perfect? It has a curse and witches and it sounds creepy. I need it.
The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Stevens – I cannot wait for this and I am attending an event at Newcastle the day before its official release. I may stay there until they sell me a copy. Izzy is an aspiring comic and, according to the rumours, a Slut Extraordinaire. When elicit pictures of her are released, she suddenly finds herself at the centre of a scandal. This is one of my most anticipated March books. It sounds like such an amazing feminist story and it seems that most people I follow have already read and loved it.
Those are my top anticipated reads for March. What books are on your radar?
