What’s On My Plate – March 2015

On My Plate

Wow this year is going fast already! I know February was a short month, but come on! How can it be March already?? This month I have really overextended myself, as you’ll see by the huge pile of review books I have on tap. Not sure how this is all going to pan out, but I’ll do my best:-D Here’s what I’m planning for March:

For Review:

Nightbird by Alice Hoffman. This short middle grade novel is Hoffman’s first, and because I love her fantasies for young adults, I can’t wait to read this one.

We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach. I’m looking forward to checking out this debut, which is getting lots of attention.

Dark Star by Oliver Langmead. This will be my second book from small UK press Unsung Stories, and I’m quite looking forward to it. Plus, pretty cover!

Throne of Darkness by Douglas Nicholas. This is the third book in Nicholas’ fantasy series, and even though I didn’t read book #2, the publicist assures me that this reads as a stand-alone.

Flex by Ferrett Steinmetz. Yay, Angry Robot is back! This is my first AR title I’ll be reading since their hiatus, and I hear it’s really good.

Harrison Squared by Daryl Gregory. I was (happily!) just approved for this title on NetGalley, and I also just found out that the character of Harrison is based on a character in Gregory’s book We Are All Completely Fine, which I just purchased! Super excited to read both books. (Note: I just finished We Are all Completely Fine and WOW. Loved it! I’m looking forward even more to Harrison Squared.)

Broken Skies by Theresa Kay. The author kindly sent me a digital review copy, and I’ve been seeing lots of great reviews on Goodreads.

Sing Me Your Scars by Damien Angelica Walters. This is a collection of short stories and one of Apex Books’ “Apex Voices” authors. I love discovering new authors from Apex!

Strangers by David Moody. I accepted this review book on the recommendation of Wayne Simmons, an author I adore. Sorry it’s taking me so long to get to it, Wayne!

Blog Tours:

Oh boy, lots of blog tours this month, I think I’ll take a break from them in April! In any case, I’m beyond excited for my stop on the A Darker Shade of Magic tour, which is tomorrow! Stop by for an international giveaway of a copy of the book and a signed poster!

I’ll be on the Unchained Memory tour on March 9th. I’m trying out a new small press for this one, INK’d Press, and I’ll be reading the book very soon.

Lastly, my stop on the Vostok tour is March 31. I’m taking a chance on this new-to-me publisher/author, so stay tuned for my review, and hopefully a giveaway of the book.

Giveaways:

My monthly book review giveaway starts on the 15th, so check back soon! As usual, this giveaway is INTERNATIONAL, and one winner will receive a book that I reviewed during the month of February.

I’m participating in the annual Spring Cleaning Giveaway Hop (which used to be called “Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop”) which starts on the 20th. I had great fun last year with this hop, giving away a secret box of books. Don’t worry, I’ll leave you some clues as to what’s in the box! Due to shipping costs, this giveaway must be U.S. only.

And that’s what’s on my plate this month! Let me know what you’re up to:-D

      I loved it Jeann! My review has already been posted. I think you’ll love it too:-D

  1. Wow, you certainly did pack yourself a full month! I started and thought ‘this isn’t so bad’, then I carried on scrolling down and down and then I thought ‘mmm, okay, it’s gonna be a bit busy then’! *understatement*
    Hope you get through it all and with that schedule if you think February went fast then I think you’ll be lucky if you remember March lol

      Well, I’m giving it a shot, anyway. Luckily there are three more days in March than in February:-D

  2. I wish I could lay out my month like this, I know I’ve tried but but you know what they say about best laid plans… 😉

    I think you’ll really like Harrison Squared. A very quick read and an enjoyable Lovecraftian adventure 🙂 Apparently I’ve been missing out when it comes to Daryl Gregory’s stuff.

      Usually this ends up being more of a guide for me. I do stray, and I don’t always finish everything. But it keeps me semi-organized! I can’t wait to read Harrison Squared, I really loved We Are All Completely Fine!

    • Tammy

      I loved Something Red and I was disappointed (in myself!) that I sort of forgot to read The Wicked (NetGalley).

  3. Wow, your March “plate” is supersized! Haha, good luck with it. I believe! At least March is slightly longer than February, right? Those few extra days really do seem to make a difference. I’m very intrigued by We All Looked Up, looking forward to your review on that one!

    • Tammy

      I keep telling myself March has 3 more days than February, I can read at least one more book, right?;-D
