Hey Y’all! I can’t even believe that another month is almost here but even more so than that…IT’S MY BIRTHDAY MONTHHHHHHHHH (dang, time really flies)! Okay, I just had to get that out! On top of it being the best month (I said what I said), it is a REALLY good month for new book releases! I think a lot of us will be praying for a windfall (or a good tax return) to cover the books we may want to purchase this month! Also, don’t forget that the library is an option should purchasing not be on the table, requesting books still supports the authors!

Lettuce pray I get to the point where I could throw money like this…preferably in some bookstores & at my bank account

There are so many books coming out in March that I’m beyond excited for so let’s get into this list!

Switch “schmoney” to ARCs…but if any publishers wanna pay me to read books, then I’m all for that too!

As per usual, I’m working on reading through the ARCs that I have and so far, I have read:

  • Squire by Sara Alfageeh & Nadia Shammas
  • Pilar Ramirez and the Escape from Zafa by Julian Randall *MG* (I’m apart of this blog tour so look out for the post on this soon!)
  • Travelers Along the Way: A Robin Hood Remix by Aminah Mae Safi
  • The Lost Dreamer by Lizz Huerta (I’m apart of this blog tour as well, so this book will get a post too)
  • All My Rage by Sabaa Tabir
  • Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys
  • Currently Reading: The Rumor Game by Sona Chairapotra & Dhonielle Clayton
On finishing these ARCs, I know, I will!

I’m excited to continue to keep reading through my ARC cue (it’s quite the cue) cause so far, the books have been amazing…and I will say it here that I think Traveler’s Along The Way is under hyped and deserves better (I emailed the publisher to let them know too, lol)…everyone needs to get that book when it comes out!

Seriously, Get it! And maybe even do this dance or something that looks like it while you do!
