March Book Haul

I finally curbed my buying a decent amount. For physical books I only made one Thriftbook haul and my Book of the Month box. And of those five books, I’ve already read three. That’s hardly any TBR pile growth and frankly, I think I deserve a pat on the back.

Books

Book of the Month picks 

 MarlenaDead Letters

This month I picked out both Marlena by Julie Buntin and Dead Letters by Caite Dolan-Leach. I’ve already read both of these this month and enjoyed both. They were both quick reads with intriguing premises. I will say I enjoyed Dead Letters much more, so if you are Book of the Month member and looking to pick up either of these in April I’d definitely recommend that one. The writing was extremely clever and unlike anything I’ve read in a long time.

Thriftbooks 

 The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles, #1)The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1)The Selection (The Selection, #1)

In January I read Ever the Hunted and loved it. It wasn’t perfect but I had so much fun reading it. I was in the mood for something just like that; a light-hearted fantasy with a heavy dose of romance. Unfortunately, I had nothing on my shelves that quite fit the bill. I hopped on Goodreads and Booktube to see what people were reccomending and narrowed it down to three: Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski, and The Selection by Kiera Cass. Basically, this was my “girls in pretty dresses” haul.

E-books

Every month I watch Amazon’s daily deals. I’ve recently discovered Book Riot’s deal of the day which picks their favorite e-book deals each days. They’ve found some that I definitely would have otherwise missed.

 Pretty GirlsPerfect Little WorldSomething BlueLocal GirlsSleeping Giants (Themis Files, #1)

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

Perfect Little World by Kevin Wilson

Something Blue by Charlotte Armstrong

Local Girls by Caroline Zancan

Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

Each of these were priced at $2.99 or less. Often these deals last all month so if any of these are on your must read list it is definitely worth checking the kindle store.

ARCS

I had a lot of March release galleys and I did an absolute terrible job of reading them. If you’ve read any of these or have been anticipating any of these titles let me know. You’ll help me decide what I should read next!

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley by Hannah Tinti

The Fall of Lisa Bellow by Susan Perabo

Overall, I’d say not too bad. What are some books you’ve picked up recently you can’t wait to read? Have you read any of these and did you love them?
