Our birthday month is almost here! And with that comes a ton of new releases. In the past some amazing books have been released in March and we have some on our radar this time around as well. So let’s jump in and take a look at our most anticipated march releases.
Bridge of Souls – Victoria Schwab (March 2nd)
We actually already read this one because we got eARC’s. You can expect a buddy review this week. Bridge of Souls is the third book in Victoria’s MG series and we loved the first two so of course we also needed to get this one. It’s also set in New Orleans and that’s just a great setting.
Chain of Iron – Cassandra Clare (March 2nd)
Okay, so both of us still need to read Chain of Gold, but the sequel releasing next week is definitely a good motivation. Both of us are really interested in this series and will hopefully continue with our Shadowhunters journey soon!
Once Upon a Quinceañera – Monica Gomez-Hira (March 2nd)
This was promoted as “Jenny Han” meets “Jane the Virgin”, two things I ADORE. So of course I want to read this book! It sounds very cute and I love to get a look at a different culture than my own with this own voices book.
The Castle School: For Troubled Girls – Alyssa B. Sheinmel (March 2nd)
All I needed to know was that this book takes place at a boarding school. That’s one of my favorite settings! Add some mystery and I’m going to sign up and read. I’m actually participating on a blog tour for this book, so keep an eye out for my review in March!
The Lost Apothecary – Sarah Penner (March 2nd)
This historical fiction mystery with dual timelines set in London sounds so so good. An apothecary provides woman with poison to get rid of the men in their lives. Do we need to know more? I’m sure I will love this!
Follow Your Arrow – Jessica Verdi (March 2nd)
Our main character is a social media influencer and you know how much I love books with elements online such as chats, etc. I’m also a big contemporary lover and Follow Your Arrow is just the book for me! And I think the discussion of what you should keep private and public is an important thing this day and age.
I Think I Love You – Auriane Desombre (March 2nd)
This is a book I’ve been curious about since I heard about it. I Think I Love You was postponed a bit I believe, but that hasn’t made me less excited. Again, I’m loving all of these illustrated covers lately. Our two main characters are completely different. One is very romantic and the other wants nothing to do with romance. I know this is going to change.
Red Tigress – Amelie Wen Zhao (March 2nd)
Blood Heir was a book I really enjoyed and I’ve been looking forward to the sequel. The setting, characters and plot are all really interesting and I really need to know how this story continues. There will be one book after this, so I’m sure a lot will still happen.
A Trial of Sorcerers – Elise Kova (March 4th)
Elise always has the best covers! And her stories sound amazing. I have read one of her books and really enjoyed it. The reason I don’t own all of her books yet is because they are pretty expensive compared to other books, but they are worth it and I would love to get this one!
The Notorious Virtues – Alwyn Hamilton (March 8th)
This has a magical competition for the throne and that is all I ever want in a fantasy basically. I have a feeling there will be scheming and intrigue and I already love it. Give it to me now!
The Girls Are All So Nice Here – Laurie Elizabeth Flynn (March 9th)
The first line of the synopsis is enough to hook me; Two former best friends return to their college reunion to find that they’re being circled by someone who wants revenge for what they did ten years before. I also enjoyed Laurie’s previous book so I have high hopes!
Perfect on Paper – Sophie Gonzalez (March 9th)
I already read an eARC of this one, you can find my review here. While I haven’t read anything else by Sophie Gonzalez yet I definitely plan on correcting that. This book got me super excited because the MC gives anonymous love advice through a locker at her high school and doesn’t that sound like a perfect book?
Act Your Age, Eve Brown – Talia Hibbert (March 9th)
I started reading the first book in this trilogy; Get a Life, Chloe Brown and while I haven’t finished that yet I’m already in love with the Brown Sisters. So you can bet I also want to read Eve’s story.
American Betiya – Anuradha D. Rajurka (March 9th)
This book is already getting very high praises. It’s an own voices novel about a young artist who deals with first love and getting to know yourself. Part of it is set in India and I’m very excited to read that especially after visiting India myself.
Sweet & Bitter Magic – Adrienne Tooley (March 9th)
A book with witches always catches my attention. Sweet & Bitter Magic sounds like it’s going to be quite the ride. The only way to feel love is to steal it from others? That’s definitely going to be interesting.
Sing Me Forgotten – Jessica S. Olson (March 9th)
Sing Me Forgotten is inspired by The Phantom of the Opera. Being able to manipulate memories when people sing is a really interesting concept. I know I need to get this book in my hands when it releases.
Firekeeper’s Daughter – Angeline Boulley (March 16th)
There is so much going on in the synopsis that I love, first off it’s a YA about murder (love it), it has a biracial native teen as it’s MC (love it), there are scandals, undercover operations and chemistry and medicine. Can I just read it right now?!
The Last Secret You’ll Ever Keep – Laurie Faria Stolarz (March 16th)
Apparently this is a second book in a series, but it sounds like they can be read as standalones. I’ve really been enjoying mysteries more and more lately. No one believes the main character after she says something has happened to her. She finds a website for survivors and meets someone she can relate to. This one sounds really interesting. I may even need to check out the first book.
Five Ways to Fall Out of Love – Emily Martin (March 16th)
I knew I wanted to read this book when I read the title. Not even knowing what it’s about I knew this would be my kind of story. Five Ways to Fall Out of Love is a rom-com and you can never have enough of those!
Lost in the Never Woods – Aiden Thomas (March 23rd)
If I’m honest the cover is the first thing that caught my eye. Just look at how pretty it is! I don’t think I’ve ever read a Peter Pan retelling, but that will have to change with Lost in the Never Woods. I have a feeling I don’t want to miss this adventure.
The Theft of Sunlight – Intisar Khanani (March 23rd)
The first book Thorn was such a fun book that definitely deserves so much more attention than it actually gets. The Theft of Sunlight is a companion novel with a different main character, but I have a feeling this one will be just as good.
Rule of Wolves – Leigh Bardugo (March 30th)
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for this one! Leigh Bardugo created one of my favorite worlds with the Grishaverse and this duology has some of my favorite characters in it. King of Scars ended in a way that was just cruel and I have been waiting ever since. I got the Illumicrate special edition in preorder and I will read it as soon as I can!
She’s Too Pretty To Burn – Wendy Heard (March 30th)
I love this title and then the synopsis ends with this; One fire. Two murders. Three drowning bodies. One suspect . . . one stalker. Yes please! You know I love a good YA mystery/thriller and this sounds like a great one!
The Accidental Apprentice – Amanda Foody (March 30th)
We both have an eARC for this middle grade novel. It’s about a boy who accidentally bonds with a magical Beast. This sounds great and must be a good adventure! It’s also the start of a new series.
Prom Theory – Ann LaBar (March 30th)
Prom Theory is a YA spin on The Rosie Project and that caught my attention. The Rosie Project was a book I really enjoyed. A main character that thinks love is just chemistry? I know this is going to be a lot of fun!
With You All the Way – Cynthia Hand (March 30th)
Last year I read The How and the Why and loved it! After that I knew I needed to read more by this author. With You All the Way not only has a great cover, but also deals with a subject that should be talked about more openly: sex. I’m curious to see how the author will deal with this subject.
March is going to be another busy month with a lot of books that sound amazing! What books are you looking forward to next month? Have we missed any good ones? Let us know in the comments.
