My Most Anticipated March Releases

Hello everybody! Today, since it’s now the end of another month (February has felt so short compared to January!), I’m going to be sharing my most anticipated releases of March. Onto the post!


A Girl Called Shameless– I cannot wait for this, which is the sequel to The Exact Opposite of Okay. I was really, really lucky and won a very early copy of book one, and while that was AMAZING it also means I’ve been waiting on this forever (slight exaggeration- just over a year and a half). I loved that first book so much, and I can’t wait to see Izzy take on the new challenge of trying to get state law on revenge porn changed. It’s going to be AMAZING.

A Witch Come True– I really, really like the Apprentice Witch series and I can’t wait to return to Lull for Arianwyn’s last outing, not least because this is set at their version of Christmas! The second book left off in a really exciting place too, so I’m looking forward to seeing how the overall arc of the trilogy ends too. I’m so sad this is the last one though! I’ll probably end up putting it off for months so that I can postpone having to be sad it’s ending…

Potkin and Stubbs– this is a mystery, about a ghost asking someone to help them find out how they died. It sounds like a book I will love, especially since there’s a fun friendship duo and a bit of a creepy atmosphere. It’s also the beginning of a series, which is super exciting because then if I love it as much as I think I will, I have more adventures with the same characters to look forward to.

Song of Sorrow– I read State of Sorrow last year and really enjoyed it, so of course I’m excited for this sequel! I think/hope it’ll pick up where book 1 left off, and I’m desperate to get all the answers to the questions that book 1 left me dying to learn. I really hope Luvian is in it too, because I need more of him in my life.

How High the Moon– this book is a historical MG set in Jim Crow era America, and is about a girl returning home from the trip of a lifetime where she learns that the north is much more racially diverse and less oppressive to black peoppe like her, to find that two of her classmates have been accused of murder. I’ve heard claims that this is like To Kill a Mockingbird, which definitely grabbed my attention, and it has a blurb from Emma Carroll, who is one of my favourite authors ever. I’ll be so shocked if I don’t love this book. (Also, fun fact: it’s written by Hillary from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air!!)

The Great Elephant Chase– by the time this goes up I will most likely have read this as I am waiting on a review copy arriving, but as yet I haven’t and I am SO excited. I read the Elephant Thief last year and thought it was absolutely top notch MG, so I’m sure this sequel about Danny’s new life with Maharajah at Belle Vue will be just as phenomenal. I’m also dying to discuss it with Louise, because she told me to read the first book and it was a BRILLIANT recommendation that we had loads of fun chatting about.

The Truth About Keeping Secrets– I have to admit I don’t know much about this one, other than that it’s a thriller about a girl whose psychotherapist father has just died and her relationship with one of his former patients. The synopsis sounds very intriguing, so I’m hopeful that I’ll enjoy it even though thrillers can be hit or miss for me…

Girl 38- even though at time of writing I am yet to read this author’s debut, I still really want to read this. It’s about a girl befriending her elderly neighbour, who lost her best friend during World War 2, and it sounds heartbreaking but brilliant. I’m really interested in both world wars, and especially love an unusual perspective, which it sounds like this will provide.


What books are you most excited to get your hands on next month? Do we have any in common? I’d love to hear in the comments!

  2. Ooh, some interesting sounding ones on here! Really like the sound of How High The Moon and Girl 38. I have The Great Elephant Chase here but want to read Elephant Thief first – not sure I’ll manage it though. Apprentice Witch is yet another series waiting TBR! Potkin and Stubbs sounds intriguing too!

    1. I’ve already read Great Animal Escapade and it’s really good- would def say it’s best to read Elephant Thief beforehand to get the full impact! The Apprentice Witch books are great πŸ’œ. Glad you like the sound of those other 3, I’m very excited for them all x
