This March has so many upcoming new releases. Here are a few that have piqued my interest.
I’ll start with one that I have been looking forward to for a long time. The Song Rising is the third installment of Samantha Shannon’s The Bone Season septology. I’ve been anticipating this book since it’s predecessor was released back in early 2015. It promises bloody battles, criminal uprising, and a new technology that threatens to doom them all. If you haven’t read The Bone Season and enjoy dystopian fantasy then I highly recommend picking it up. Release date March 7th, 2017
The End of Oz is the 4th book in Danielle Paige’s Dorothy Must Die series. I haven’t read them but I have to admit they sound fascinating. You follow Amy Gumm on her adventures in Oz and, from the sounds of things, I think Dorothy dies. Kind of says so in the series name. Many people have read Gregory Maguire’s Wicked take on Oz it could be fascinating to get it from another point of view. Release date March 14th, 2017
This isn’t my usual type of book but it sounds fascinating none the less. “Hilarious and poignant, it is a love letter to a vanishing city, and a deeply emotional story of fathers and sons.” – from Goodreads. From the description it sounds like the reader may have to suspend their belief in reality for the novel to be enjoyable but I’m up for it. Release date March 21st, 2017.
“Set at the end of World War II, in a crumbling Bavarian castle that once played host to all of German high society, a powerful and propulsive story of three widows whose lives and fates become intertwined” -from Goodreads. I love historical fiction but haven’t found myself interested in a book set during WWII before. This one, however, sounds really interesting. Release date March 28th, 2017.
There are so many books being released this March but these are the ones that caught my eye. You’ll be seeing a review of The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon coming soon as my copy is out for delivery today. I can’t wait!
