With the Trope-ical Readathon going on this month, it was fairly easy for me to construct a March 2023 TBR list. I drew all of my TBR below from the various books I selected for the Trope-ical Readathon. However, there’s no way I’ll be able to read well over a dozen books in a month. So my primary focus will be on some ARCs.
THE DANCE TREE by Kiran Millwood Hargrave: This is an ARC and will hit shelves in the U.S. on March 14, so it’s at the top of the list for me to read next. It’s a historical fiction novel set in 16th century Strasbourg about “family secrets, forbidden love, and women pushed to the edge.”
THE FAIRY BARGAINS OF PROSPECT HILL by Rowenna Miller: This is another ARC and out March 28, so it’s at the top of the list for me to read next. A story about fairies? Yes, please.
LAWN BOY by Jonathan Evison: This is apparently a book that certain people like to ban. So I thought I’d read it and decide what I think for myself. It’s a library book (with a waitlist, I think?), so better to read it sooner rather than later.
SOME DESPERATE GLORY by Emily Tesh: Yet another ARC, but this time one that’s out next month on April 11. It’s a “queer space opera about the wreckage of war, the family you find, and who you must become when every choice is stripped from you.” The last space opera I tried to read almost put me in a reading slump. Hopefully I’ll enjoy this one more. Moreover, I think it might be in one of my book subscriptions. So I’d like to know if I like it enough to keep or skip it.
A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN by Sarah J. Maas: The third book in the ACOTAR series, this is a buddy read with Chris. It’s so fun rereading these books for the first time. I’m on a holds list for the dramatized audiobook. But, oddly, my library only has Part 1 of two parts. So I guess I’ll read the second half from my actual book.
So, these are the five books at the top of my March 2023 TBR list. I would love to read more, but we’ll see. Anything can happen!
What are you reading this month? Are we reading any of the same books?
