March Monthly TBR

montly tbr

I am sooooo looking forward to my March TBR! Jenn created Monthly TBR to show up the books you hope to get to within the upcoming month, and I love it. Feel free to visit her blog and join in!

Ummmm… February was a disappointing reading month for me.



Only 3 out of 9!!! Whaaaaat? I only read 5 whole books in February, and the first halves of 2 others. I can only really blame it on being really kinda busy – I worked 70 HOURS in one week this month, plus V-Day and my birthday. That’s a lot of stuff happening. I started The Prince and the Pauper but didn’t finish it – it was SO SLOW. So in addition to the 3 books in the picture, the other 2 books that I read were One Good Earl Deserves a Lover and The Black Lung Captain, which was the sequel to Retribution Falls. I’m disappointed I didn’t get around to Me Before You, but it was about two weeks overdue at the library so it had to go back.

Let’s move on, shall we? My March pile is FULL of amazing.

From the top…

  • Hell to Pay by Matthew Hughes – This JUST came out, and it’s the third book in the To Hell and Back trilogy I like so much. Super psyched to read it!
  • Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray – Already halfway through it for a readalong, so I’ll be finishing this one this month for sure.
  • The Return Man by V.M. Zito – I have been wanting to read this zombie novel for a while now. It’s about a guy who is hired by people to find their zombified loved ones and put them at peace. Intrigued, I am.
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling – Also halfway through this for the readalong, so it’s a guaranteed finish.
  • Just Six Numbers by Martin Rees – My science pick of the month. Hoping to actually get to it!
  • Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion – LOVED the movie, and I bet I’m gonna love the book too!
  • Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell – Been waiting for this for ages!!! Also just came out on Tuesday. Might start this today, if I’m not feeling too wretched (getting my wisdom teeth out, probably as you’re reading this).
  • Moloka’i by Alan Brennert – Historical fiction about a leper colony that I’ve been meaning to try out for a while, and Katie liked it so now I’m looking forward to it even more!
  • The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma – Ummmm it’s about authors and time travel with steampunk elements? YES PLEASE.
  • Boneshaker by Cherie Priest – I saw this at the library and it looks really good. Something about steampunk-zombie-airship adventures, so obviously it sounds super cool.
  • The Iron Jackal by Chris Wooding (not pictured) – This is the 3rd book in the Tales of the Ketty Jay series and I ordered it from The Book Depository, so hopefully it will get here within the next two weeks so I can devour it!

Yeah that’s a lot of books. But two of them are already half-finished and I am just SOOOOO EXCITED about all the others!!!

What’s on your to-read list for March?




  1. I don’t tend to make such detailed plans for the coming month. At the end of February I did start Great Expectations by Charles Dickens though, which I am looking forward to polishing off in the new month. Good luck and happy reading 🙂


  2. Woohoo! for Vanity Fair. I hope you’re liking it and that book is a beast. I’ve had Map of Time on my TBR for ages but haven’t found a copy at a library or caved to buy it yet. I hope that you like it.
    Zombies, steampunk and Harry Potter sounds like a great reading plan.


    1. I looked for The Map of Time at the library but they didn’t have it (though they did have the second book, ugh), so when we went birthday book shopping I decided to buy it. I didn’t want to wait for it to come in from another library. Plus it sounds awesome, I’m thinking I’ll like it a lot.


  3. You still did okay last month! And some great books for this month … I just read Eleanor and Park and it was really good! I’m also TRYING to muster up the ambition to read Warm Bodies, but I’m still not sure if I’d like it or not.

    Have a good month!


    1. Thanks 🙂 If it helps, Warm Bodies is only 230 pages or so! I’ve heard lots of really good things. Think of it as zombie romance! That’s basically what the movie was, and as odd as that sounds it worked, lol.


  4. “Warm Bodies”- let us know how that goes.
    I never really plan the books to read because I always end up coming across more interesting ones in the library and then feel guilty for abandoning my list. Better to read list-less.


    1. I like having a pile of books that I want to aim to read, but I usually end of reading other stuff as well and skipping some of the books on my list. It just gives me some extra motivation 🙂


  5. I don’t really have an official TBR list BUT I love two of the books in yours: Eleanor & Park (I’ll be reviewing that one on the radio on Tuesday morning) and Moloka’i. I look forward to your reviews on those. GOod luck with the wisdom teeth!


  6. This is a tough one.
    Inspector Zhang Gets His Wish
    Good to Great (re-read but it’s been a while)
    The Kane Chronicles (I’ve got the first three books)

    Sadly, I have a certification exam for work and the study guide is over 1200 pages. I’m sure it will be riveting…


    1. Hi Tom!! *waves*

      The Kane Chronicles books look so good! I liked the author’s Percy Jackson books (well, the first one) but I’ve been really lazy about keeping up with his books.

      Good luck with that study guide… that really sucks :-/
