What’s On My Plate – March 2014

On My Plate

Welcome to March! This year is just going way too fast, isn’t it? February is always a rough month for me, so I didn’t get through all the reading I wanted to, which doesn’t surprise me. The rest of the school year (through May) is going to go lightning fast, as anyone with school-aged kids knows. This year my daughter is promoting from eighth grade, so the next three months will be full of promotion activities. She’s also in show choir, and March is competition season, so there will be lots of out-of-town trips this month. Hopefully I can keep up with my blog in the middle of all this craziness! Anyway, here’s what I’ve got on my plate this month:

For review from Edelweiss/NetGalley:

Death Sworn by Leah Cypress. The reviews I’ve read so far are all over the place. Some bloggers love this, and some hate it! I’m curious to see where I’ll fall.

Promise of Shadows by Justina Ireland. Here’s another book I’ve seen mixed reviews for. Hmmm…

Panic by Lauren Oliver. And yet another book with lots of mixed reviews. These always make me nervous! But I have to say I’m dying to read this.

The Weirdness by Jeremy Bushnell. I requested this a long time ago, so I’m glad it’s finally time to read it. I haven’t seen many other bloggers with this title.

The Burning Dark by Adam Christopher. Can’t wait to read more of Adam’s books!

The Wicked by Douglas Nicholas. I adored the first book in this series, but I read it a couple of years ago. It will be interesting to try to catch up and remember what’s going on.

Lockstep by Karl Schroeder. This story sounds right up my alley.

Nil by Lynne Matson. This has received some pretty good overall reviews.

For review from publisher:

The Barrow

The Barrow by Mark Smylie. This comes out in a few days, so I doubt I’ll get to it by then, but I’m so excited to read it. This seems to be one of those “it’s not for everyone” books, and I’m hoping it is for me.

Blog Tours:


Under Nameless Stars by Christian Schoon. My tour stop is on March 17th, so I’ll be reading this one soon. Plus I think I’m interviewing Christian too (hey, Christian, if you’re reading this, stand by for interview questions!). There is also a giveaway of some sort for the tour, so don’t miss my stop!


February Book Review Giveaway. I’m continuing my tradition of giving away one of the books I reviewed the previous month. Make sure to stop back on March 5th!

Red Rising ARC Giveaway. This is still going on! I ADORED this book, in case you missed all the raving I’ve been doing here on the blog. The giveaway is for US only and ends March 8th, so enter now!

So, my plate is clearly overloaded (again!). But as usual I’ll do my best. I’d love to hear what you’ve got going on book-wise this month!

  1. I’m very curious to see what you’ll think of Death Sworn and The Burning Dark! Couldn’t fit any more into my review schedule, but I have both on my wishlist (too many books, too little time) 😀

  2. Glad to hear you loved Red Rising, I’m about to start it in a few days. I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve heard great things about NIL lately too, I hope you enjoy that one! The Promise of Shadows actually looks amazing. And how amazing is the cover for The Weird Ness? Hope you enjoy Tammy!

  3. I read Panic last summer, but I think I need a refresher before I post a review! I think you’ll like it though.
    Love the cover of Under Nameless Stars! And Death Sworn looks epic.

    Happy March reading!

  4. I’m very curious about Nil and Panic, so looking forward to your reviews of those. That cover for the new Zenn Scarlett novel is AWESOME and really makes me wish I’d read the first book already!

    I definitely need to pick up NIL…and check out the first to Wicked you mentioned. I read a book by him once that I wasn’t overly impressed with but hmmm still curious
