Today, you get a TBR before I even write the February wrap-up! That’s because it’s more a reminder for me than anything, I don’t know how much I will stick to it (knowing how I am with TBRs… probably not much). But at least if everything goes according to plan I won’t feel too guilty about overdue ARCs?
All of these are ARCs, so they’re my priority. I should read all of these before the end of March, two because they come out this month and one because of a blog tour.
Ruse by Cindy Pon – I did the smart thing and reread Want in February (and yes, it was just as good as I remembered). Since 2019 is the year books I like finally get f/f sequels – like this one is – I should also… read them. I know, what a concept.
The Waking Forest by Alyssa Wees – I have heard almost nothing about this but it should have anxiety representation, creepy forests, and the author is a Catherynne M. Valente fan. So yes, I think this is going to be good?
Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan – I mean. How could I not? I don’t want to read it too soon because I have the feeling that waiting for the sequel will destroy me, but… villain romance… monster love… yes
These are not ARCs, it’s just that I won’t forgive myself if I don’t read the new Ann Leckie and the new Kameron Hurley soon! 2019 already looks like a great year for adult SFF – I really want to read the recently-published The Priory of the Orange Tree and Ancestral Night too, and so many other books that will come out in the following months, but for now I’ll stick to authors I know I love, because I have no time.
Also, it’s time I read another Valente novel, and In the Night Garden sounds like a good choice, even though I could also choose Palimpsest if I’m in the mood for more weird f/f fiction.
I want to get to Shadow and Bone and Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo (both rereads of course), and while I’m not sure that will actually happen, I do want to get to King of Scars eventually? So.
Another book I might end up reading is Captive Prince, because I think I can take a chance and try something I’m not sure I’ll like if all the books I read end up being as good as I expected them to be.
Also! The “TBR Jar” (read: I asked my mom to pick a number from 1 to 65. I have no time to make an actual jar) pick of the month is Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody, which means that maybe I will finally read it?
What are you planning to read in March?
By the way: if you go there (my TBR) and you think I should get to one of these books (that are already out) right now, tell me! I could make it the metaphorical TBR Jar pick of this or next month
