Coffee and … Louise Picks My March TBR

This month’s brilliant TBR has been chosen by the lovely Louise. Join me in a coffee whilst I look at what I’ll be reading this month?

The Coffee:

This week, we are drinking a Kenyan coffee from Clifton Coffee Roasters. The Kithinguru has tasting notes of honey, blueberry and piccolo tomato. Kenyan coffees are some of my absolute favourites, so I’m thrilled they’re coming back into season.

The TBR:

Louise is one of the wonderful bookish Basement Dwellers at my local Waterstones, and the creater of the Basement’s Tillpoint of Dreams (check out her pinned tweet for photos, it is absolutely stunning). She has chosen me a brilliant list of books for March.

1. My Life as a Cat by Carlie Sorosiak – This one was a Christmas gift from the lovely Steph, and I have no doubt I’m going to absolutely love it.

2. The Middler by Kirsty Applebaum – This has been sat on my shelf for the longest time, and everyone has told me how awesome it is, so I’m glad to have the push to read it this month.

3. The Girl in Red by Christina Henry- I love Christina’s writing and this post-apocalyptic take on the story of Red Riding Hood sounds right up my street.

4. Legendborn by Tracy Deonn – This is a proof copy which I should have read sooner. I have heard nothing but great things about it, but the writing is so tiny, I am worried for my eyes!

5. The Loop by Ben Oliver – This was Tsam’s recommendation a few months ago. It’s a dystopian book which sounds like it has similar themes to The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist and Cell 7 by Kerry Drewery. I cannot wait.

6. The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart – This was a Christmas gift from Tsam. I hadn’t heard of it before, but I am very here for it. Tsam has great taste in books, so I am sure this will be a winner.

7. Ultraviolet by R. J. Anderson – Louise said this is one of her favourite YA books and I’m excited to read it. A murder, a mystery and a girl in a psychiatric institution trying to piece it all together. Yes please.

I am excited for every book on this list. I just have one book to finish from last month’s list before I get cracking. What books are you planning to read this month?

  1. Well- as far as I know, I can only name two. Starless Sea and The Yellow-Painted Bookstore. Don’t know if I will be able to start a new book or not. Well, I do love coffee and my dad makes mocha mistos in the morning


  2. The Middler is BRILLIANT! And I really, unexpectedly, enjoyed Loop too. I have to say though I didn’t love Legendborn. There were things I liked but it didn’t do it for me overall. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it more!

      1. So tiny! Though it is actually a quicker read than the writing would suggest.
        We do have similar tastes though you do read more YA than me so I suspect you’ll get on with it better. I’ll be interested to see what you think anyway!
