TBR March Books



Tomorrow is March 1st, which hopefully means a month of nicer weather and plants and grass and all things green. Someone please stop this polar vortex #2, I'm literally crying here in Rochester, NY.

Instead of working on my paper about whether brain games help improve general intelligence, I have decided to show you my picks of books for this month! I probably won't read them all, but I like to be optimistic.

Books I'll Most Likely Read!

At first I wasn't going to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2.5, because I'm tackling #2 now, and it's over 500 pages. But Night of Cake & Puppets is just an ebook with 89 pages. Totally doable. Attachments is from the library, and I just want to read Graceling.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Night of Cake & Puppets by Laini Taylor

Here are my ARCs for this month!

I randomly got pre-approved to read The Here and Now, and I'm not sure why? But the cover looks amazing, and so does the Goodreads summary. I'm trying to avoid other reviews, since I ALWAYS end up being slightly biased, and I want to focus on my own thoughts and opinions. 
The Here and Now by Ann Brashares
Secrecy by Rupert Thomson

U of R Book Club!

Hahaha my pick won this month! Even though there are only around seven students in book club. I probably won't start this until later in the month since I'm a procrastinator, but everything works out in the end.
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

I might add a few books here and there, like the Lunar Chronicles which I didn't get to last month. Also, I'm definitely going to update my blog layout sometime this month. So if anyone knows anything about CSS and how to merge the background and header together, please let me know!

    Great TBR pile. I've read Graceling in the past and it was alright. I think I had too big of expectations going in so it ended up being a little disappointing for me.

    I wish I could help you with the CSS. The only thing I could suggest would be making the background of your header transparent in photoshop. Not sure if there is any way to do it on CSS without changing the header itself. Sorry, I wish I knew more CSS so I could help. :/

    1. I think I found a fairly decent tutorial to help me with the header, but I won't get started on that until spring break :P

      I also have pretty high expectations for Graceling, but if I don't like it then oh well the world goes on. The concept just seems cool. Thanks for commenting Hanna!!
