- Daisy Jones & The Six by: Taylor Jenkins Reid (Random House)
- Gingerbread by: Helen Oyeyemi (Riverhead)
- I’m not usually a fan of fantasy/fairy tale retellings; however, I continue to see rave reviews about this one! I’m curious to check it out!
- A Woman is No Man by: Etaf Rum (Harper)
- Kourtney (one of my #bookstagram friends who also co-hosts the page, Salt Water Reads) suggested this one and she has yet to steer me wrong. (She also highly suggested The Kiss Quotient – one of my favorite books from last year.) It’s also received glowing reviews from a few other trusted people I follow.
- The Island of Sea Women by: Lisa See (Scribner)
- So many people loved See’s previous book, The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane. Unfortunately, that one never made it onto my #tbr, so I’m going to give this one a try. Many love her writing style and I’m excited to see for myself!
- When All is Said by: Anne Griffin (Thomas Dunne Books)
- I’m always intrigued by the concept of who forms us, who influences us, and who has the biggest impact on our lives. This book is about a man who toasts the five most influential people in his life: his older brother, his troubled sister-in-law, his daughter, his son, and his wife.
- The Wrong End of the Table: A Mostly Comic Memoir of a Muslim Arab American Woman Just Trying to Fit In by: Ayser Salman (Skyhorse)
- From the Goodreads synopsis: “This is the story of every American outsider on a path to find themselves in a country of beautiful diversity.” I’m always up for a well-written memoir that gives me insight to a group I’m not personally familiar with!
- Before She Knew Him by: Peter Swanson (William Morrow)
- After enjoying The Silent Patient (my review here) from last month, I’m willing to give another psychological thriller a try. I generally shied away from thrillers, but I think the added psychological component works for me.
- Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Daughters by: T Kira Madden (Bloomsbury Publishing) (Read my review here.)
- I’ve already read and loved this one. It was so well-written and Madden’s honesty and vulnerability captured my heart!
- Queenie by: Candice Carty-Williams (Orion Publishing)
- You’d have to be living under a rock if you haven’t heard about this one! It’s everywhere! While I have yet to read Americanah, it has been compared to it. And everybody I know loves Americanah…so it sounds like I need to get on the bandwagon for both of these!
- A People’s History of Heaven by: Mathangi Subramanian (Algonquin)
- This one sounds so beautiful. Described as having themes of love and friendship, community, strong female characters, and fighting for your people and your home against outside forces that threaten to destroy them…it sounds like a wonderful book!
- If, Then by: Kate Hope Day (Random House)
- Four neighbors begin to see themselves in parallel realties…and I’m intrigued!
- The Things We Cannot Say by: Kelly Rimmer (Graydon House)
- We all know I love good WWII historical fiction and this one sounds so good! From the Goodreads synopsis: “Slipping between Nazi-occupied Poland and the frenetic pace of modern life, Kelly Rimmer creates an emotional and finely wrought narrative that weaves together two women’s stories into a tapestry of perseverance, loyalty, love and honor. The Things We Cannot Say is an unshakable reminder of the devastation when truth is silenced…and how it can take a lifetime to find our voice before we learn to trust it.”
- Lot by: Bryan Washington (Riverhead)
Phew! That was a lot, but those are my most anticipated March releases!
