Okay first of all, how is it already March? Someone please explain this sorcery to me. Second of all, I barely managed to get any reading done in February? Like at all. So here’s my “catch up” TBR that is basically just my February TBR shuffled over, with one or two changes.
THE MAID AND THE QUEEN
By Nancy Goldstone
I started this book in January and have yet to finish it. It’s a nonfiction book that offers a new perspective on the legendary Joan of Arc, and how she managed to rise to power. It’s an interesting read, but as I’ve found with most nonfiction I’ve read it’s pretty dense and difficult to work through. It just doesn’t suck me in like a work of fiction does, so it’s been pretty slow reading so far. I’m on the last third of the book though, so hopefully I can finish it up soon!
THE SUN AND HER FLOWERS
By Rupi Kaur
This is a poetry book, and I’m already halfway through it! It was a Christmas gift from my mom and I’m really enjoying it so far! I have a soft spot for poetry anyway, seeing as I write it, but some of these poems are really blowing me away. And by that I mean punching me in the gut.
By Leigh Bardugo
This book had all the buzz on book twitter last fall – and not all of it was good. But the more I heard about Bardugo’s first adult novel, the more intrigued I became. So when I saw it on the “New” table at my local library I just had to grab it. Well, that was back in January, and I still haven’t started reading it. My library probably hates me. *cue nervous laughter*
CRESCENT CITY: HOUSE OF EARTH AND BLOOD
By Sarah J Maas
This is one of my most anticipated reads of 2020, so it’s no surprise I want to read it IMMEDIATELY. I ordered it at 3AM the night of it’s release (a signed copy, of course), and I’ve basically been pacing my room ever since waiting for it to arrive. Shipment Tracking said Saturday, which is the day this post is going up. So hopefully by the time you’re reading this, I’m already devouring Crescent City.
CITY OF BONES
By Cassandra Clare
Chain of Gold just released, and is now serving as a tantalizing reminder that I need to hurry up with this Shadowhunters reread so I can grab it (I mean seriously, have you seen the cover??) I’m long overdue for a reread. It’s been six YEARS since I read The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. So I need to kick off that reread with City of Bones this month.
By Stephanie Garber
In all honesty, I have next to no idea what this book is even about. I just remembered it having quite a bit of buzz on booktube, so when I saw it at my library I snagged it. From my understanding it’s pretty beloved, so hopefully I enjoy it!
LOST LANDS, FORGOTTEN REALMS
By Bob Curran
This is a short nonfiction work that talks about lands and cities that have been lost in time. It looks pretty intriguing and it’s a light read, so I squeezed it into March’s TBR to try and catch up to my Goodreads challenge hahahahha. (But seriously, I’m seven books behind and it’s stressing me out, someone send help.)
And that’s it! A total of seven books if you count finishing The Maid and the Queen, which I definitely do. Again, gotta catch up to that Goodreads challenge haha. Have you read any of the books on this list, and if so did you enjoy them? I want to get back into reviewing books on this blog since I kind of let that slip (oops). So look forward to reviews for at least some of the books on this list! ‘Til next time!
It took me a while to edit and post this TBR, so as of today (Friday, March 13), I have finished two of these books! The Sun and her Flowers and Ninth House! I won’t be writing a review for the first one, since it’s poetry, but I’m really looking forward to writing my review for Ninth House! So stay tuned for that!
