Happy March (though, this feels like a betrayal to say, since last March was definitely the start of a really dark and fucked up year)! But, that’s not what we’re focusing on here, so we’re going to move right along and talk about books, instead, as I continue the trend of making monthly TBR lists this year!
Last month, I had 8 books on my TBR and I ended up reading 3 of them in their entirety, plus starting two others, so still not too bad! I should have also considered the fact that I also have to start reading some books for my grad class, which I didn’t think about, so that took some time away from reading (plus, just general depression and playing too many video games late).
So, this month, I’m going to lessen the number of books I want to read to see if I can have a month where I finally read all of the books I want to. *fingers crossed*
Books I Want to Read in March
Goal # Read: 5 Books
Books on this List: 5 books
The Unbroken by C.L. Clark
Not gonna lie: my most anticipated read of 2021, I think? I just…I need this book in my life and, since it comes out officially this month, let’s see if I can finally get an ARC review posted *before* the book comes out for a change. *nervous laughter/crying*
Realm of Ash by Tasha Suri
The hype I am feeling for The Jasmine Throne is REAL and it reminded me that I still haven’t read this one by Tasha, even though I devoured and adored Empire of Sand to levels I didn’t expect–something I need to remedy ASAP!
The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare
I need more romance novels in my life and, after the first one I read this year wasn’t so great of a read, I need something I know I’ll devour (even if it means risking my entire TBR to go on a romance binge).
Solace Lost by Michael Sliter
Mike is such a gem on Twitter and a good friend, so I have been meaning to read his books for ages. I’m hoping the nicer weather will help cope with some of the darker elements and themes I’ve been warned about within this novel, as I don’t think, mental-health wise, I could handle this grimdark novel during the winter heavy months, so we’ll see! I’ve heard such great things.
Body Kindess by Rebecca Scritchfield
I told myself that I would try and read one body positive book every three months and, since March will mark the end of the first three months (!!) of 2021, I’d like to actually make good on this goal (plus, my continuing trend of negative self-talk would benefit from this work, I think).
Will making a TBR that isn’t super close to 10 books a month for the first time this year actually make it more possible for me to complete said TBR? Only time will tell. 👀
What about you? Any TBR plans for March? If you don’t make TBRs, what is a book you’re really excited about reading or one you just finished that made you feel things? Let me know in the comments!!
