March 2021 TBR list: last month was so successful I read all 8 books; I decided to do it again, I have three ARC’s to read this month and two books that have just came in from the library. I’m looking to move and will work on the piles of books I already own starting this month.
In The Quick by Kate Hope Day this book the publisher reached out to me since I reviewed Kate Hope Day’s debut If, Then from Netgalley. This was the first time a publisher has reached out, which I felt pretty honored. I did not review If, Then too highly at 3 stars. I thought the plot could have been better but I recommended it because of character work. I ‘m already half way through it and like it more than If, Then. The plot is about female astronaut driven to rescue a lost crew that only she believes is alive. Thanks Netgalley and Random House In the Quick is published today March 2 2021
Inspection by Josh Malerman has been on my TBR for a while now, I have read two books by him and been very impressed on what he brings to horror, a lot of my fellow reviewers have said it is good but a slow burn, The plot is two schools separated by a deep one the boy and one girls don’t know about each other and that another sex exist until they find one another, That what it seems like anyway.
Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas is a prequel to The Hate U Give happening 17 years before. It still involves the Carter family but we will see Marverick and what made him walk away from the gang. I have loved and enjoyed Angie Thomas previous two novels, the reviews have been pretty good so far can’t wait to see what I think of it.
The Ladies of the Secret Circus by Constance Sayers is about a secret circus, a family curse that still affects a woman in present day when her fiancé goes missing. I really enjoyed Constance Sayers debut in A Witch in Time, which also dealt with a decades long curse. I really like books about the circus, way more than I actually like going to the circus. Thanks to Netgalley and Redhook Books for the ARC. The Ladies of the Secret Circus is published on March 23 2021
The Lost Village by Camilla Sten is described as The Blair Witch Project meets Midsommar by the publisher. I don’t know a lot going in to this story but the genre is horror/suspense. Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for this ARC. The Lost Village is published on March 23 2021
Goosebumps: Monster Blood 2 by R. L. Stine is Goosebumps book 18 in the original order. For those that know my reviews, know that I loathed the first Monster Blood, it is the second worst in my opinion of the 17 others I have read so far. Hopefully this is better that that.
The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier reminds me a lot of the plot of Pixar’s Coco. Where there is a whole city of the dead that are still remembered by the living. But the City has started rapidly shrinking. It has been on my TBR for a while.
Marvel Masterworks: The Amazing Spider-man volume 3 by Stan Lee This continues Spiderman 2nd year to his third. He comes closer to finding out the secret identity of the Green Goblin. Peter Parker gets closer to finally going on a date with Mary Jane Watson. We get to see the birth of Scorpion, Molten Man and the first Spider Slayer.
