Very honestly, there are so many amazing books coming out this year that I’m already falling behind on all the ones I want to buy and read. Because, well, money doesn’t grow on trees of course, and even an avid reader like me only has so many hours in the day! I’m hoping to get some more January and February releases soon, but for now, I’d like to get into which books I’m most looking forward to in March!
Lauren James – The Quiet at the End of the World
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe is still on of my favourite YA books, so I’m really looking forward to The Quiet at the End of the Universe! I actually ordered a signed copy from Lauren James’ Etsy store, which I would highly recommend 🙂
Samira Ahmed – Internment
After really enjoying Love, Hate and Other Filters, I’m very excited to read Internment. It sounds like a very important novel. And Samira Ahmed is coming to Yalfest this year, so hopefully I’ll be able to get my books signed!
Meagan Spooner – Sherwood
I feel like I’m repeating myself, but once again I’m hyped for a book because I loved the author’s previous book. Hunted is still my favourite Beauty and the Beast retelling, so I’m so curious about this Robin Hood retelling!
Carlos Hernandez – Sal and Gabi Break the Universe
I will never get enough of the Rick Riordan Presents imprint. You can quote me on that. I’ve loved all three books that have been released so far, and I just love the whole aim of the imprint to uplift marginalized voices. It’s wonderful to see so many different representations in kidlit!
Juno Dawson (ed.) – Proud
I mean… I don’t think this needs much explaining. That cover! So many amazing contributors! I really can’t wait to read it.
Laura Steven – A Girl Called Shameless
I LOVED The Exact Opposite of Okay. And I loved Izzy, the main character. So it won’t come as a surprise that I’m very very excited to have a sequel! Especially since contemporaries don’t often get sequels. (I really wish they did!)
Ashley Herring Blake – The Mighty Heart of Sunny St. James
I can’t describe how much I loved Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World, which I read in January. I actually didn’t know Ashley Herring Blake would have another middlegrade coming out so quickly after I read Ivy Aberdeen, so I’m very much looking forward to this!
Taylor Jenkins Reid – Daisy Jones and the Six
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was one of my absolute favourite reads of 2018. I’m also very curious about this new release, even though I’ve already seen some mixed reviews. I guess Evelyn Hugo is a difficult book to live up to! I ordered a signed copy from Waterstones, by the way.
Bonus: It’s V.E. Schwab month!!
There are no less than THREE releases by her coming out this month, even if they aren’t new books. I’m really excited to get my hands on the collector’s edition of A Gathering of Shadows, as well as the new edition of The Near Witch and the bind-up of The Steel Prince!
What books are you looking forward to this month? Do you have any recommendations?
