March Reading List – Continuing Series and New Releases

march reading list.jpg

This month, I’m tackling a few big books. So I’m going to keep this list short. But I am really excited about every book on this list – they’re all books by authors I’ve read before and love. And all but one is a new release (coming out either this month or next). I’ve got pretty high hopes for them, and am hoping this will be a great reading month.

Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel. I really enjoyed the first installment in this series, Sleeping Giants, last year, and am excited to continue the story and find out what happens. This book will be out April 4, so I’m planning to have a review up towards the end of this month!

The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova. I was kind of obsessed with Elizabeth Kostova – and The Historian – in college. But she does a ton of research for each novel, and it takes years for her to write each one. Which I think is worth it, since her books are incredible even though have to wait forever to read them. So I was excited to see her next release (and third book) was coming out this year. I was even more excited to receive an ARC, and can’t wait to read it. I will have a review up before this book is released April 11.

The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. I was saving the sequel to The Name of the Wind until I finished grad school, and I still haven’t gotten around to reading it. I think I need to fix that this month, because this series is amazing. (And it will be nice to actually be caught up with an ongoing series.)

The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. This book comes out next week, and I just received an ARC, so I will be reading it in the next few days (hopefully). I loved Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (longest title ever), so I’m really excited about reading this one!

This month, I also want to start reading The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. I don’t expect to finish it this month (or even next month), but I do want to start making my way through it, because I want to read it this year and it’s probably going to take me a while.

Let me know what you’re planning on reading this month in the comments!

  1. Right now I am reading TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD by Harper Lee. I am somewhere in the middle and want to finish it soon because it’s been on my TBR pile for years. Let me know what do you think about The Grapes Of Wrath whenever you finish it. Have a nice day!!

    1. Thanks! I want to reread To Kill a Mockingbird, because it’s been like fifteen years since I’ve read it. But I remember really liking it! I will definitely post about The Grapes of Wrath when I finish it. Eventually.

      You have a nice day, too!

  2. So far, I’ve started How to be Black by Baratunde Thurston and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstrern.

    I didn’t even know Saenz had a new book coming out, and I am suddenly quite excited for it. I, too, love Ari and Dante.

    1. It comes out in a week! I’m liking it a bit less than Ari and Dante, but I honestly think it’s because I loved the audiobook for that one so much. But I’d say if you liked one, you’ll like the other. I am really enjoying the story so far.

  3. The Wise Man’s Fear is an awesome book. I liked it better than The Name of the Wind. I’m trying to finish Aspect-Emperor series by R. Scott Bakker so I can catch up by the time the next book if it is released, I’ll be busy reading them this month and possibly resume my Wheel of Time first timer marathon from book #4.


  4. I still need to read The Wise Man’s Fear. I read The Name of the Wind last year, and absolutely loved it! But because the second book is so long, at the time I had to set it aside for a bit, hoping to come back to it but I never did. So I’m hoping to finally get around to it again this year!

  5. Like many of my fellow commenters on this post, I also love The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear. Such a wonderful story with beautiful writing! In my opinion at least 🙂 I think The Wise Man’s Fear will fulfill your expectations, and I’m looking forward to hearing what you think about it.
