Hello lovelies! How are you? I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend! I’ve been pretty good with my book buying so far this yeas (I know, I’m as surprised as you are), but I have a feeling March will be the month that puts a stop to that. There’s just too many exciting books coming out. No one has this much self control. No one.
Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds – March 5th
This is a YA contemporary with a time travel twist; Jack meets Kate, they fall in love, but then she dies and Jack’s transported back to the day they met. I love contemporary stories that play with SFF elements and time travel is one of my favorite tropes!
Field Notes on Love by Jennifer E. Smith – March 5th
This sounds like a really cute and fun YA romance, about a boy and a girl who meet when he offers his ex-girlfriend’s nonrefundable train ticket up online and she accepts. If you read any of Valentine’s post you’ll know I have a thing for meet-cutes on trains, so this sounds perfect.
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid – March 5th
Taylor Jenkins Reid’s new release is an oral history of a fictional 70s rockband. The Almost Famous stan in me is very excited about this and the Taylor Jenkins Reid stan even more so.
The Last 8 by Laura Pohl – March 5th
This is a sci-fi book about a group of 8 teenagers who survive an alien attack. This isn’t my typical cup of tea, but it’s got a bisexual/aromantic main character and several queer characters so I want to check it out. I’m so here for queer YA SFF.
Dealing in Dreams by Lilliam Rivera – March 5th
Listen. I didn’t think I’d be adding a YA dystopian to my TBR in the year of our lord 2019 either, but this one has GIRL GANGS so here we are. I don’t make the rules.
Actually, I do and they’re good rules.
When the Sky Fell on Splendor by Emily Henry – March 12th
The Serpent King meets Stranger Things? I’m in! (Yes, I forgot that I haven’t read The Serpent King again. Yes, I need to read that book and stop embarrassing myself) It follows a group of teens who see something massive falling from the sky, while investigating local ghost stories for their YouTube channel.
The Waking Forest by Alyssa Wees – March 12th
This is a YA fantasy with two separate narratives, one about a teenage girl and one about a witch, both about the magical forests that connects them. Magical forests and witches are my favorite things, so my expectations are high.
Other Words for Smoke by Sarah Maria Griffin – March 12th
“Sarah Maria Griffin’s sophomore novel follows twins Mae and Rossa as they discover a house full of witches, experience devastating first loves, and face a dark power beyond all imagining.” Did someone say a house full of witches? A HOUSE FULL OF WITCHES.
Internment by Samira Ahmed – March 19th
Internment is set in a near-future US and follows a 17 year old Muslim American girl who’s forced into an internment camp with her parents, and starts to fight for freedom, leading a revolution against the internment camp’s Director and his guards. This book sounds terrifying and so, so important.
The Weight of the Stars by K. Ancrum – March 19th
I adored The Wicker King and K. Ancrum’s new releases sounds just as good. It’s a slow burn f/f romance between a girl who dreams about traveling across the stars and a girl who’s mother ‘s an astronaut on a one-way trip to the edge of the solar system.
