Hey y’all! Instead of a post outlining all of my goals for the month, today I’m posting just about the books I plan/hope to read this month. Of course, I still have goals and expectations for myself when it comes to keeping a consistent blogging schedule, writing reviews, and other things going on in life. However, the main point of this blog is the books I’m reading, so in my mind it makes more sense to highlight the books I hope to read more than the other stuff.
Without further ado, here are the books in my March TBR (To Be Read list)!
Note: All titles link to the book’s Goodreads page.
📚 Treasure of Hope (Cliff Walk Courtships #3) by Cecily Wolfe
Genre: Christian Historical Fiction
I am NOT ready for this trilogy to be over. Unfortunately, I must soon reach the end, but I am sure it will be sweet.
📚 Love Flies (Leaving Lenhurst #2) by Julia David
Genre: Christian Historical Fiction
Julia David was one of my favorite authors discovered in 2018, and I am so excited to read her newest book!
📚 90 Days to Your Novel by Sarah Domet
This has been sitting on my shelf since I started working on my most recent story idea…and I haven’t read any of it yet. Hopefully I will find time to do so in March!
📚 Lisette’s List by Susan Vreeland
Genre: Historical Fiction
This is another I have already started, but lately it has been dragging quite a bit for me. I’m determined to push through and finish it this month, though!
📚 Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy
As I’ve mentioned in other posts, one of my goals for this year is to finish a series that I previously started but never finished. I’ve read 4 of the 7 books in the Chronicles of Narnia, so I want to finally read the last three. Somehow, even though this one is listed as book #2 in the series on Goodreads (based on publication order), it is one I have not read yet!
📚 Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
Genre: ??? It’s listed in several genres on Goodreads, including Science Fiction and Historical Fiction.
Cloud Atlas is one I have been hearing about for years; it seems to be one of those books that you either love or hate, and I want to see which side I end up on. Also, another of my goals is to read at least one experimental fiction book in 2019, and I think this will be a good way to step into that without jumping straight into the deep end. This will probably take me a while to finish, so I don’t expect to read the whole thing in March, but I want to at least get started.
📚 Listen, Slowly by Thanhha Lai
Genre: Middle Grade Contemporary
This book works towards several of this year’s reading challenges: It’s set in California and Vietnam, checking off another state and country for the year, as well as counting towards the YARC challenge for reading books set in Asia written by Asian authors. It is also a middle grade book, which I hope to read 5 of this year. I’ll probably start this one fairly late in the month, so again I may not finish it, but it’s there to at least get started on!
📚 Dance With Me (Art of Love #1) by A.M. Heath
Genre: Historical Christian Romance
This is an ARC I have for an upcoming blog tour. I usually steer away from things that have dance as a prominent topic, but this story sounds so good, I couldn’t pass it up! The world of 1950s competitive dance is intriguing, and the premise of two rivals being forced to pair up promises to be dramatic. Even though it’s a bit outside my comfort zone, I expect to enjoy this book a lot.
I have high hopes for all of the books on this month’s TBR, and seeing them laid out in this post is making me even more excited to read them! Aside from these books, I’ve also got a few reviews lined up of books I have already read, plus some other fun posts for this month.
Have you read any of these books? Which are you most excited to hear my thoughts on?
Until the next chapter,
