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 Magic, All the Birds in the Sky, You 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.)
|PRIORITY MARCH READS|
Half YA, half Middle Grade books. I AM (NOT) READY!
- March is going to be the month where I read a lot of Middle Grades. I’ve started reading Where You’ll Find Me, and I am loving the sarcastic voice of the main character! I gotta read The Girl in the Well is Me (stream of consciousness narrative, I believe), The Inn-Between (creepy inn mystery), and The Classy Crooks Club (bridge room heist + grandmothers)!
- I need to read The Serpent King and A Drop of Night soon, which I’m very excited for both! This Is Where the World Ends is up in the air. It depends if I’m in the mood.
- 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!
