March Reading Plans // Wrapping Up My February Reading Plans + My March TBR!

Guess who’s back to share her reading plans in the middle-of-the-month?

I’ve been really loving the organization of these posts (even if they took me forever to write). I’d thought I would continue to share my reading plans/monthly TBR!

My reading plans (aka my preferred name for TBR) is structured in such a way that I can both have organization in terms of my reading but also give me room to mood read so I don’t get into a slump.

This post is going up way later than expected, because WordPress has constantly kept deleting huge chunks of my post MULTIPLE times in a row, and I’m so done with it, smh.

Anyways, to the reading plans! It’s generally the same, with perhaps a few minor changes, but we’ll go through them as they come.

TBR:

Image result for six of crowsImage result for king of scarsImage result for harry potter and the chamber of secretsImage result for the gilded wolves

  • Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) by Leigh Bardugo βœ”οΈ This was fun.
  • Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2) by Leigh Bardugo βœ”οΈ I’m sad I didn’t retain my initial 5-star rating, but see, we can’t have everything we want.
  • King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo (Nikolai Duology, #1) βœ”οΈ Nikolai, Zoya and Nina are icons, but this is NOT Nikolai’s book, and I’m salty. I miss sassy Nikolai.
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) by J.K Rowling ❌ Spoiler for my March Wrap-Up: I’ve read this!!
  • The Gilded Wolves (The Gilded Wolves, #1) by Roshani Chokshi ❌ Lololololllllll

New Releases

  • On the Come Up by Angie Thomas βœ”οΈ Angie is a queen and I love her and her books.
  • The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf βœ”οΈ I didn’t read this one this month, but I read it initially as an ARC, so this counts? I don’t care, I’m still counting it.
  • Fate, Fame and the First Kiss by Kasie West βœ”οΈ Cute, but it’s not as good as the other books that I’ve read from her.
  • Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte ❌ Though I didn’t read this in February, I read it in March, and it was SO GOOD. More coherent thoughts to come to my wrap-up (and maybe my Goodreads?) at the end of the month.
  • We Set the Dark On Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia ❌ I loved Mejia’s writing in All Out, so I wanted to check this out
  • The Beauty of the Moment by Tanaz Bhatena ❌ This sounds so cute, and I want to read it, especially because hello good reviews! Also Asian rep. We stan.

This month, I’m going to be adapting my TBR in such a way that I can make room for in case I want to mood read this month. So, my main goal will be to read the priority books on this list (marked by this emoji here πŸ”‘). I will be trying to get to the other books, but if I don’t, I won’t cry about it, you know?

For this month, I will be participating in two monthly reading challenges: Monstrous March (focusing on reading all the mystery/thriller/horror novels off your TBR), which is hosted by Kathy and Destiny, as well as Hamilthon (which has prompts based of from Hamilton songs), hosted by Louise at Foxes Fairy Tale! As soon as I heard this, my Hamilton trash self could not resist, so here we are. I’ll be using this emoji (🌟) to denote books that count for this challenge.

  • The Dead Queens Club by Hannah Capin: βœ”οΈπŸŒžβœ¨πŸ”‘πŸŒŸΒ Spoiler: I’ve just finished rereading this, and it was solid. A mini review on Goodreads/the blog to come!
  • Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte: βœ”οΈπŸŒˆβœ¨πŸ”‘πŸŒŸΒ I 5-starred this two years ago, and due to me not enjoying my favs as much as I used to, I’m scared. I’m also scared of feelings too lmao.
  • The Vanishing Stair (Truly Devious, #2) by Maureen Johnson: ❌🌸✨🌟 I DO want to read this, but the mixed reviews are making me a little apprehensive. This is a 500-page fantasy book, and I don’t know whether I can take it, or if I have time, yikes.
  • We Set the Dark On Fire (We Set the Dark On Fire, #1) by Tehlor Kay Mejia: 🌞🌈✨🌟 I’ve talked about this in my TBR wrap-up in the sect, I don’t think I really need to explain this pick.
  • The Gilded Wolves (The Gilded Wolves, #1) by Roshani Chokshi: 🌞🌈✨🌍🌟 I’m kind of mixed on reading this, especially with some reviews saying it’s boring, and that it didn’t really capture my attention! I ~think~ I’m buddy reading this with the lovely Aline?Β 
  • This Is Our Story by Ashley Elston:Β πŸ’¨πŸ“– May has been gushing about this author for MONTHS, and I want to give her books a shot! This one has always been on my TBR and it sounds so interesting. My library has this one, so hopefully, I can get a copy soon!
  • Two Can Keep A Secret by Karen M. McManus: ✨ Not gonna lie, this doesn’t sound superrrr intriguing, but I did like McManus’s debut novel (though it did come with a LOT of problems), and I want to see how this goes.
  • Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl:Β πŸ’¨πŸ“–Β Lala loves this a lot, and since I love Lala and this book’s synopsis, I’m going to try this one. I’m also interested in Night Film, so let me know your thoughts on that, especially since it is so well-loved.
  • A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena:Β πŸŒžπŸ’¨πŸ“–πŸŒπŸŒŸΒ This has gotten so many great reviews, and I want to support all the Asian authors! I’ve never read a book set in Saudi Arabia, so it’d be really great if I could diversify my reading!

New Releases

  • Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid:Β πŸŒžβœ¨πŸŽ§πŸŒŸβœ”οΈΒ This is really different from Reid’s other works, especially in terms of formatting, because I know this is a format that doesn’t click for everyone! This was an interesting story though.

Miscellaneous

  • Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen: πŸ“šπŸ“–πŸŽ§πŸ”‘Β This is the March #CatchUpOnClassics pick, and I want to read more Austen, especially since I really enjoyed Emma quite a few years ago!
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) by J.K Rowling: πŸ“–πŸŽ§πŸ”‘πŸŒŸΒ I need to catch up on reading a Harry Potter book a month (which I did!) I love this series so much.
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3) by J.K Rowling: πŸ“–πŸŽ§πŸ”‘πŸŒŸΒ I need to read this for March to be able to be fully caught up on my a Harry Potter book a month challenge! I also want to see the adaptations, but alas, no time 😦 Maybe I’ll do some binge watching in the summer?

In order to hopefully catch up with Back to the Classics Reading Challenge, I’m going to try and read 2 more classics, wish me luck! What are some of your favorite classics? I need ideas.

Depending on how busy I am or how I feel, I may participate in the Buzzword-a-Thon hosted by Lala @ Books and Lala and Chelsea @ Chelsea Dolling Reads, from March 18th-24th, so we shall see! I’m not incredibly sure yet, but it would be interesting to try it, I guess?

What are your March Reading Plans looking like? What are your thoughts on my reading plans? Is there anything you have read here, and do you think I should read them or not? Which ones should I prioritize, if any at all? I would love to know.

  1. King of Scars did have less Nikolai then I imagined in it!! I thought Nina would be with him but she had her own story going!! I did enjoy it though!!
    I’m glad you enjoyed four dead queens– I am intrigued by this story!! I have heard a mix of things about the gilded wolves too but I still want to give it a chance!! I hope you enjoy it if you get around to it!!
    Of course I love Harry Potter too and ‘the prisoner of azkaban’ is my favourite I think (I love them all haha) so I hope you get to read it!!
    Happy Reading!!

    1. Honestly, about Nikolai and Nina – I expected that they would be working together in the book? Don’t get me wrong, I still did like it but it was way too slow and was completely against my expectations. I hope you like Four Dead Queens, should you pick it up – it was such a fun ride! The Gilded Wolves sounds great buttt all the mixed things does make me a little wary, to be honest.

      But honestly HP is so good and I have such a soft spot for it! I loved Prisoner of Azkaban so much more than I thought I did, and that makes me so happy! It was so close to a 5 😊 Happy reading to you too!

      1. That is what I presumed as well!!
        Yes I love stories about queens and that so I think I will look into it!!
        Yes I know what you mean– it does make me wonder if I’ll enjoy it when you hear mixed things 😊
        Harry Potter is such a good series and I am glad you are enjoying it so much!! Thank you πŸ’›

  2. You have so many amazing choices!
    I feel like I need to jump in the Taylor Jenkins-Reid hype train before it’s too late. I haven’t read Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo yet, and I’m now also incredibly intrigued by Daisy Jones and the Six. I feel like I’ll love her books, but also there’s way too much hype and I do have an Aquarius rising so I’m hesitant that I’ll be the only one to hate it. Hopefully, that won’t be the case!
    I am also a bit scared about The Gilded Wolves. I do want to read it, because it has an amazing premise, but also a lot of people say it’s confusing. And if even English-speaking people struggled to understand it, what chance do I have? Hahah. This past month I read Truly Devious and it took me ages to get through because I was struggling with the language so much. Nonetheless, I am excited for Vanishing Stair and to hear your thoughts on this sequel!
    Hope you get the chance to read amazing books in March! πŸ’›
