One readathon down, Camp NaNo to come.
February was a great reading month. I always have good reads in February. Statistically its a great month for reading. In total I did 10 books and feel very pleased with that.
For March I have at least 3 ARC due and a book club book, which is probably where I’ll start. Then I reserved several books from the e-library which are coming. Beside that I’m giving myself the opportunity to mood read a bit. I have to pick and e-book and a physical book from my shelves to read and I’ll mood read those I think.
I have no plans for March apart from finishing the bedroom flooring and painting, and to sort out the allotment ready for spring. I do plan on doing Camp NaNo in April so I might spend some time prepping for that, but I also want to read as much as possible before that. I’m currently 7 book ahead of my Goodreads goal and I want to keep that up so I have a buffer for April.
With all that I mind I’ve picked 9 book to go on my TBR. Of which 2 are not important right now and can be delayed, and there will be another 2 coming into the list whenever I decide.
Let’s dive in!

Skyward Inn by Aliya Whiteley – This sounds like a slow cosy read set in space which is a type of book I didn’t think existed. Its set in an inn for the local slow life habitants. We follow the inn keeper and the cook who are both war veterans and the cook tell stories at dawn at the end of everyday. It’s said to be Jamaica Inn meets Ursula K LeGuinn which makes me very excited. Publication date UK 16th March 2021.
We Hunt the Flame (We Hunt The Flame #1) by Hafsah Faizal – I originally wanted to read this when it came out a few years ago but never got around to it. Now that the sequel is coming out the first book was put on NetGalley as well. BUT! I’ve learned from my own mistakes of requesting both first and second book only to not enjoy them and force my way through them. Even though I felt this is going to be a really good book I only requested the first book 🙂 Publication date UK 18th March 2021.
The Unbroken (Magic of the Lost #1) by C. L. Clark – This sounds amazing! Also the cover is so good! it’s science fiction fantasy, Queer and sounds epic. It has a rebellion and murder and intrigue 🙂 I’m excited! Publication date UK 25th March 2021.
Sorrowland by Rivers Solomon – I’ve loved all of Rivers Solomon writings so far and I’m very excited to see this on NetGalley. I know this will be hard to read but interesting and good too. Publication date UK
11th March 6th May 2021. (Delayed)
The Wolf and The Woodsman by Ava Reid – This sounded fun and original but also very similar to another book I had on my TBR. Not a priority in March but if I have time I might read it. Publication date UK 8th June 2021
Not sure yet but I think it will be something short. I have plenty of options from Cinderella to The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. I wonder what I’ll end up with.
I’m not sure what I want to read from my shelf this month so I’m giving myself an olive branch and say that I’ll mood read this section too. I do have a lot of longer books on my shelf and I’m hoping I’ll end up reading one of those. I’m pretty sure it will be a fantasy of some sort.
How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black – another new gem in the library e-audiobook app
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (#1) by Ransom Riggs – This entire series has just arrived at the library e-audiobook app and even though I have seen the film and enjoyed it, even if I have the e-book to the first book and decided that I wasn’t going to read it, I though that maybe I should read them all…
A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf – why not squeeze in a classic from an author I have never read anything by?
The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende – Book club pick for this quarter 🙂 We decided to travel to Chile this time around. A nice lockdown “holiday” I hope 🙂 I have already started this book so I hope to finish it asap as our book club meeting is on the 9th March.
