You know the drill by now with these posts. We are spoilt for choice with these new releases. It’s so hard to know which books to prioritise, especially when you’re a mood reader. However, this list is a mix of fantasy, historic, romance, and everything in between so surely there’s something for everyone. Here are 6 books releasing in March that you need to have on your radar.
Side Note: Anyone else noticing a trend in purple hues being used on more book covers?
Rule of Wolves (King of Scars, #2) by Leigh Bardugo (30th)
I’m sure you’re all hyped for the upcoming release of the Shadow and Bone series. I know I am. However, there’s still a couple of months to go before we can binge-watch this highly anticipated series. So, why not spent that time immersing yourself in the Grishaverse? Now, admittedly, this reader has a lot of catching up to do, but Rule of Wolves sounds like an explosive finale to the King of Scars duology, one that could have grave consequences for our heroes.
The Dating Plan by Sara Desai (16th)
A marriage of convenience and the best friend’s sister trope in one book? Sign me up! The Dating Plan sounds like the swoon-worthy story we all need on those rainy days. Daisy and Liam’s marriage of convenience sounds like the perfect ploy to get Daisy’s family off her back and fulfill the commands of Liam’s grandfather’s will. However, as we all know, marriages of convenience never stay conveient for too long and tsparks are bound to fly when they’re in such close proximity. Who wouldn’t be interested in reading about this set up?
The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner (2nd)
“A female apothecary secretly dispenses poisons to liberate women from the men who have wronged them—” That’s all the information I needed before knowing that this book was worth being on my radar. Split between 1791 and present day London, this book is full of mystery, intrigue, and shocking twists as the lives of these women are set to collide in the most dramatic and dangerous fashion.
Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro (2nd)
It’s been years since I’ve read one of Ishiguro’s books, but the concept of this one is just too good to pass up. Our main character, Klara, is an artificial friend that spends her days observing the behaviour of those around her. It’s like this perfect blend of human interaction told from the eyes of the world’s technology. This book will definitely make you think and is probably going to pack a few punches as we explore the range of experiences and emotions that define us as humans.
Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert (9th)
The third installment to the Brown sisters saga, and one that is bound to sweep you off your feet. Eve Brown sounds like quite the character, one that will bring a certain amount of excitement/drama to your life. At least, that seems to be the case for Jacob Wayne. However, while these two seem to be polar opposites in their attitude for life, I guarantee the chemistry will be off the charts, and in learning about each other, they’ll come to appreciate each other for their individuality and learn a few lessons about themselves along the way.
Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas (23rd)
Aiden Thomas burst onto the literary scene last year with his debut, Cemetery Boys. Lost in the Never Woods sounds like a worth follow up, one that will captivate readers with his retelling of Peter Pan. This book sounds magical and mysterious, but there also seems to be plenty of character dynamics that will heighten the tension as Wendy is forced to confront the woods that haunt her every step.
