This month the books I plan to read will mostly consist of books that have been sent to me by publishers for review. The books I have chosen are all different genres so I cant wait to dive in and read them all.
Below are the books I plan on reading in the month of March-
King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard
Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven continues weaving his web in an attempt to maintain control over his country – and his prisoner. As Mare remains trapped in the palace, the remnants of the Red Rebellion continue organizing and expanding. As they prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows, Cal – the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart – will stop at nothing to bring her back.
I was meant to read this last month but I got a little behind in my reading. I am so excited to start reading the third book in the Red Queen series. I have no idea what is going to happen in the book, but I cant wait to find out. The Red Queen series was one of my favourite new series of last year and I am sure I will love this book as well.
The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel
The Roanoke girls seem to have it all. But there’s a dark truth about them which is never spoken. Every girl either runs away, or dies. Lane is one of the lucky ones. When she was fifteen, over one long, hot summer at her grandparents’ estate in rural Kansas, she found out what it really means to be a Roanoke girl. Lane ran, far and fast. Until eleven years later, when her cousin Allegra goes missing – and Lane has no choice but to go back. She is a Roanoke girl. Is she strong enough to escape a second time?
I started this book last month, I just didn’t find the time to finish it in February. I was lucky enough to have been sent a review copy of The Roanoke Girls by the publisher. I can not wait to start this book because I have heard nothing but amazing things about it. Its meant to be dark, gripping and very twisted, which sounds like its going to be a great read.
Gilded Cage by Vic James
Britain’s magically skilled aristocracy compels all commoners to serve them for ten years – and now it’s the Hadleys’ turn. Abi Hadley is assigned to England’s most ruthless noble family. The secrets she uncovers could win her freedom – or break her heart. Her brother Luke is enslaved in a brutal factory town, where new friends’ ideals might cost him everything. Then while the elite vie for power, a young aristocrat plots to remake the world with his dark gifts. As Britain moves from anger to defiance, all three must take sides. And the consequences of their choices will change everything, forever.
Before buying this book I was seeing this mentioned everywhere on Twitter and Instagram, and after reading the description I bought it straight away. This book sounds like its going to be something I will love reading and I am so glad to be starting a new series.
Hekla’s Children by James Brogden
A decade ago, teacher Nathan Brookes saw four of his students walk up a hill and vanish. Only one returned – Olivia – starved, terrified, and with no memory of where she’d been. After a body is found in the same woodland where they disappeared, it is first believed to be one of the missing children, but is soon identified as a Bronze Age warrior, nothing more than an archaeological curiosity. Yet Nathan starts to have terrifying visions of the students. Then Olivia reappears, half-mad and willing to go to any lengths to return the corpse to the earth. For he is the only thing keeping a terrible evil at bay…
After being offered this book to review by the publisher I could not turn it down. It sounds like its going to be spooky, mysterious and a terrifying read that will have me on the edge of my seat. __________________________________________________
Relics by Tim Libbon
There’s an underground black market for arcane things. Akin to the trade in rhino horns or tigers bones, this network traffics in remains of gryphons, faeries, goblins, and other fantastic creatures. When her fiancé Vince goes missing Angela Gough, an American criminology student, discovers that he was a part of this secretive trade. It’s a big-money business shadowy, brutal, and sometimes fatal. As the trail leads her deeper into London’s dark side, she crosses paths with a crime lord whose life is dedicated to collecting such relics. Then Angela discovers that some of these objects aren’t as ancient as they seem. Some of them are fresh.
Again this was another book offered by the publisher for me to review. Reading the description for this book made me want to start reading this book straight away. I can’t wait to start this dark and mysterious read.
Phantom Limbs by Paula Garner
Otis and Meg were inseparable until her family abruptly moved away after the terrible accident that left Otis’s little brother dead and both of their families changed for ever. Since then, it’s been three years of radio silence, during which time Otis has become the unlikely protégé of eighteen-year-old Dara – part drill sergeant, part friend – who’s hell-bent on transforming Otis into the Olympic swimmer she can no longer be. But when Otis learns that Meg is coming back to town, he must face some difficult truths about the girl he’s never forgotten and the brother he’s never stopped grieving. As it becomes achingly clear that he and Meg are not the same people they were, Otis must decide what to hold on to and what to leave behind. Quietly affecting, this compulsively readable debut novel captures all the confusion, heartbreak, and fragile hope of three teens struggling to accept profound absences in their lives.
I don’t have many chances to review contemporary books from publishers, so I jumped at the chance to review this book. I do like reading these sorts of books throughout the month because they are normally a fast but very enjoyable read.
Room Empty by Sarah Mussi
Fletcher and Dani are fighting their own inner demons just to stay alive. Dani is ravaged by anorexia and hasn’t eaten for days. Fletcher is fighting to stay off the streets and to stay off drugs. Will their attraction to each other save or destroy them? Both patients at the Daisy Bank Rehab Centre, Fletcher wants to help Dani find out about the Room Empty at the heart of her pain: What happened to Dani in that room when she was four? Whose is the dead body that lies across the door? Why won’t her mind let her remember?
This is the final book I plan on reading in the month of March. The story for this book grabbed me straight away, I have never read a book before about someone suffering from anorexia. I think this will be challenging and informative book that I cant wait to start.
What do you plan on reading in March?
