πŸ”₯ Top 5 Anticipated Releases for March 2020 πŸ”₯

This is becoming one of my favorite monthly posts! And one of the posts that makes my tbr grow…

March is a huge month for releases and it was so hard to narrow them down! Here’s what I decided on:

πŸ”₯ Girls with Razor Hearts by Suzanne Young πŸ”₯

Release Date: March 17

I fell in love with Suzanne during our author chat last year. Girls With Sharp Sticks was one of my top books of 2019 so I can’t wait to dive into this sequel!

I forgot to add this to my TBR, but I think I am going to replace We Didn’t Ask For This with this book. My blog tour for We Didn’t Ask For This is next month!

πŸ”₯ The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu πŸ”₯

I’m trash for Marie Lu. She’s one of my favorites. I will read whatever she puts out. Warcross is one of my favorite series of all time.

This is so different from everything else she has written, but I can’t wait to see how it is! And that cover! Ugh, so gorge.

πŸ”₯ The June Boys by Courtney C Stevens πŸ”₯

I love a good kidnapper tale. And what’s interesting about this one is all the boys are returned unharmed – until they aren’t. Why is the Gemini Thief taking the boys? What does he do with them? Why kill now?


πŸ”₯ We Are the Wildcats by Siobhan Vivian πŸ”₯

I am so into girl power and girls supporting girls.

A toxic coach finds himself outplayed by the high school girls on his team in this deeply suspenseful novel, which unspools over twenty-four hours through six diverse perspectives.

Like, COME ON! That sounds so amazing! Booo toxic masculinity! Burn the patriarchy!

πŸ”₯ All the Pretty Things by Emily Arsenault πŸ”₯

I am super pumped for this thriller. First, the cover is creepy as hell. That’s one ride I do not want to get on.

When your best friend stops talking to you and you start discovering secrets involving her and the dead guy, you know it’s going to be a wild ride.

Well, these are my top 5 releases of March 2020! They’re all on my TBR except Kingdom of Back, which will be on April’s TBR!

What do you think of these? What is your most anticipated release? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time…


March Wrap Up

Guys, where did March go?! I was laying in bed last night after just finishing Warrior of the Wild and thinking about what I was going to write for my review. Then I thought, crap, I need to do my wrap up! At this point it was already 11pm and I knew I would hate myself in the morning, so I decided to do the wrap up today and my March plan tomorrow. Then after that you’ll get a review of Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller and The Program by Suzanne Young! Lots of content coming soon!

What I read in February:

The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill

Super cute graphic novel that I got from OwlCrate.
4 Stars

Fake Plastic Girl by Zara Lisbon

My first ARC of the month. I wasn’t super impressed. A TON of Taylor Swift references.
3 Stars

The Mermaid’s Voice Returns in This One by Amanda Lovelace

I binged Amanda Lovelace in February, so I was super excited to get an ARC of her third book. I loved the poetry, but it wasn’t my favorite.
4 Stars

The Manic Pixie Dream Boy Improvement Project by Lenore Appelhans

Third ARC of the month. I had to make myself finish. It was just too campy – and I didn’t think that was a thing. Plus the title is way too long.
2 Stars

The Demon Next Door by Bryan Burrough

This was my Audible pick of the month. Who doesn’t love a good murder mystery?
3 Stars

The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross

This is where it starts getting good. I could not put this book down. Plus Rebecca was so sweet during her chat! Can’t wait to read The Queen’s Resistance!
5 Stars

What Happens When by Samantha Boyette

My fourth ARC of the month. It was also meh. I didn’t like the whole try – to – turn – the – girl – straight thing.
3 Stars

Enchantee by Gita Trelease

Oh man. This book was wonderful and so descriptive. I felt like I was in France the whole time. I loved all the French language that was incorporated. Gita is now an instabuy author for me!
5 stars

Girls With Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young

This book makes you so uncomfortable in a good way. It was such a great read and my favorite ARC of the month by far. All the mods at Words & Whimsy gave it 5 Stars. And Suzanne was amazing during her Q&A!
5 Stars

How Not to Ask a Boy to Prom by S. J. Goslee

This book was cute, but the main character was slightly annoying.
3 Stars

Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle

This was the second audio I got to this month. I loved the Irish voice actors and the way the past was woven in with the present. I did feel like the story dragged on a little.
3.5 Stars

The Program by Suzanne Young

Review to come. Man this was a great start to this series. I can’t wait for book two.
4 Stars

Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

Another amazing read. Review to come. Officially a Tricia fan!
5 Stars

Alright guys, that’s it for my March wrap up! I finished criteria in Book Battle. Princesses came in last. Better luck this month! Be on the look out for my March plan!

Until next time…
