Anticipated Releases: March 2019

capture-20190304-160011.png

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.

  1. The Weight of the Stars!! So many books I loved in 2017 and 2018 are getting f/f sequels and I’m so happy this exists

    In less happy news, I’m currently writing my review of The Waking Forest and… it wasn’t good at all. Promising beginning, but the second half was literally every YA fantasy cliché ever (and there were no witch-y elements after the 60% mark).

    1. That’s a very exciting development! What other f/f sequels should I be reading? (I know about Ruse, but I couldn’t get into Want)

      That sucks! Bad books with promising books are the worst. They lure you in with their potential, just to disappoint you. The whole mysterious boy thing had be a little wary, tbh. I look forward to reading your review!

      1. – Sorcerer to the Crown (The True Queen)
        – Witchmark (Stormsong, which got moved to early 2020 but it exists)
        – possibly The Perfect Assassin’s sequel, The Impossible Contract (which will come out this year), could be f/f. I’m not completely sure yet, but I know it’s about a queer woman.

        I expected the mysterious boy thing to be boring – and it was, but it wasn’t as terrible as it could have been, just deeply uninteresting – I just didn’t sign up to read a cliché princess story and that’s what this ended up being

  2. Daisy Jones & The Six is a book I want to read as it’s also the Hello Sunshine choice for March… I didn’t like the book they chose for February, hopefully this one will be good! Fingers crossed!

  3. I love this list! I’ve heard so many awesome things about The Opposite of Always. Daisy Jones & The 6 sounds great too, so I’m looking forward for your review of those two books! The Wrong End of the Table is an ARC I read and reviewed on my blog that is coming out in just a few days. It’s so so good! Other than that, I don’t know of any other books about to be released this month. But omg so many are coming out in April!!!

  4. Wow okay there are so many books coming out this month! I hadn’t actually heard what The Opposite of Always was about until now, and that sounds heartbreaking. I need to read it. I’m also so excited for Daisy Jones and the Six and Internment! I have lots of reading to do…

  9. This is such a good list! ❤ I got lucky enough to read Opposite of Always and I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to read Fields Note On Love, when the sky felt on splendor and the waking forest, they all sound SO GREAT! 😀
