march tbr

Middle Grade March Madness, as I like to call this March, is gonna be a such a doozy of a month. I’m gonna be drowninnnnngggg. I didn’t realize how many of these books were published right after each other, and oh my god, please give me the mood to get them all read.

For those who do not know, Too Much TBR is a way to help me see which books I really need to read and tackle them. Is it effective? Perhaps. It helps a lot seeing a visual of the books on my TBR pile.

Let’s discuss what I read last month, and what I’m reading this month!

BACK IN FEBRUARY

Well, February didn’t go as I planned. The dreaded reading slump got to me. I spent the majority of the month not being able to read—not even romances—until I read You Were Here. 

I managed to get four out of the ten books on my February TBR list read, and those were A Darker Shade of MagicAll the Birds in the SkyYou Were Here, and A Study in Charlotte. It’s a no-brainer that ADSOM was simply out of this world, but You Were Here was a special gem that I hope everything reads. It had beautiful writing and the visual storytelling was just so perfect. Also, that Mik, guys. *heart eyes* Go out and read this book! A Study in Charlotte is probably my favorite YA Sherlock adaptation because the characters didn’t annoy the hell out of me. It still had problems that prevented me from fully liking in, but nonetheless, extremely well written and a beautiful ode to the Sherlock/Watson stories. (I also read the comic Lady Killer, which was fun with lots of murder and blood.)

I’ve decided to put these books on a hiatus: Salt to the SeaRiders, and The Girl from Everywhere since I haven’t been in the mood to read them.

PRIORITY MARCH READS

Half YA, half Middle Grade books. I AM (NOT) READY!

  • I want to get a start on my April book, and the first one is Tell the Wind and Fire. I adore Sarah Rees Brennan’s Lynburn Legacy, so I hope her new book knocks it out of the ballpark.

Note: All these books here do not account for other books that may slip into my TBR list (because mood reading will probably happen) nor of the comics I will be reading. I’m sure I missed other books I want to read this month too, but since I can’t remember, it must not be priority, right? Let’s hope I make a dent in my TBR books for December!

How was your February? Tell me what’s on your March TBR list. Have you read any of the books on my lists? Or are you planning to read them?

  1. I did better in February than I thought with six books, but I still missed an ARC that published yesterday. I am a mess for March because I normally only read eight books a month and I have 12 ARCs, plus the left over one from February. I have The Girl In the Well Is Me, The Inn Between, and The Serpent King on my March tbr, too. :)

    I have a few of these on my March TBR. I am really excited about The Serpent King and A Drop of Night. I am hoping to get some older TBR books read this month for a TBR challenge I joined. Good luck with all your reading goals this month!

    SO GLAD YOU LOVED ADSOM, CEE. =D I’ve read it three times now and I’m so, so, so in love.

    The Girl from Everywhere is one of my favorite debuts this year and you should definitely only read it when you’re in the mood for it.

    I also have A Drop of Night, This Is Where the World Ends (laldjajfad) and Tell the Wind and Fire (more kajdghsgs) on my TBR, too and I’m just so excited for all of them. Also, looking forward to what you’ll think of The Serpent King.

    The best thing that happened in February was that I moved to WordPress (yay, me!) and the worst that I ONLY read 3 books. But they were all amazing books so I’m not complaining that much.

  4. I haven’t heard of The Inn Between before but it sounds SO GOOD! Will definitely be reading that!

    I really, really, really adore your TOO MUCH TBR posts! I don’t know if it’s because it makes me feel better since I’m also constantly drowning in my own books, or if it’s because I enjoy seeing the books we have in common on our TBRs, or maybe it’s a little bit of both. Here’s to hoping we get some reading done this month!
