March! Spring! Books!
So, February went well, I’m still massively ahead of schedule on my 52 book target for the year (15/52 read!) which means there’s no pressure to READ ALL THE THINGS… so of course I want to read all the things anyway.
(Books that count toward my BBC17 will be highlighted in PURPLE and will be fully reviewed later in the month as part of the challenge and the Book Club book will be highlighted in GREEN and will feature in my Book Club review post in early April after our meeting.)
My planned TBR for March contains (more books than are really necessary…):
This Is Where It Ends by Mariekjke Niamp – Because I have wanted to read it since before it was even published and the cover is amazingly effective. The book is about a school shooting in America so unlike anything I’ve picked up before.
The Method by Shannon Kirk – The Blog Tour is coming to CFHW just next week so I have my nose in this at the moment. It’s a book about a sixteen year old pregnant girl who has been kidnapped but she isn’t your average sixteen year old and I don’t think the kidnapping is going to go entirely to plan…
Nerve by Jeanne Ryan – I have borrowed this off a friend after seeing the movie trailer and thinking it looked cool but then not actually watching the movie. I figured I’d give the book a go first!
Elizabeth Is Missing by Emma Healey – Because I never got round to it last month after bumping it repeatedly down the list for other stuff.
The Dragon’s Eye by Dougald A. Steer – My British Book Challenge contender for the month which is a beautiful hardback copy that my Mum got me years and years ago but I never got around to reading. The time has finally come and I am actually quite excited to pick it up.
The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams by Stephen King – I have two sections to read this month (Pgs 51 -157) because I didn’t read my February section on time. *slaps wrist* (Note: This is on my TBR every month this year as I have divided it up so I will be reading a story or two or three from it each month.)
Storm Front by Jim Butcher – Crime novel plus wizards? Sounds right up my alley 😄
Oh, and HAPPY WORLD BOOK DAY to everyone! I hope you manage to find a few minutes to lose yourself in someone else’s imagination for a while today. And remember, any book could be the best book you have ever read but you will have to pick it up to find out. Also – all books count: physical, digital, audio, comic, graphic, recipe, fiction, non-fiction… books are books and books are awesome.
(I also have two of this year’s World Book Day titles to read if I get chance: Dead Of Night by Michael Grant and Island by David Almond – there’s no such thing as too many books, right? Right??!)
