Monthly TBR

March 2022 TBR

Dawn of the arcs! Tackling of the TBR cart! Praying for enough caffeine!

Hi, hello, it’s me again. Your lovely chaotic book blogger, Malli here to tell you about the reading plans for March. But before we jump right in to the tbr… Have you hydrated today? Eaten a snack? Grabbed that second cup of coffee you left in the microwave? You need to take care of yourself, my friend, whatever you may need, make sure you take care of yourself.

Okay, it’s that time again where we talk books. YES BOOKS! Let me start by saying, I have no idea how this month is going to go reading wise. I’m going to be honest, I’ve recently fallen down a sexy, steamy novella rabbit hole and I don’t know if I’ll ever get out. So I’m hoping if I throw enough books at myself, my overachieving drive is going to be like, “We have obligations! Let’s focus, grab those coconut chips, and read!” Or something along those lines. I really want to tackle some of the books off of my tbr cart due to no more space and needing to get some of those books packed up. Also, I have a few arcs I’d really like to read just because they’re on my list of 5-star predictions right now and thankfully, I did start one. With all that being said, I thought I would try attempting the ACMC readathon happening in March. Though, I’m not stressing over whether or not I can actually find books for this readathon because I’m kind of doing a subtle, early prep for another readathon that’s happening in May. Plus, I’m trying to keep some space free for the monthly prompt of my friend’s book club. As you can see, March is a very busy, chaotic month for me and this tbr. But, I still compiled some of the books I’m hoping to read this month. Check out the list below! ⬇️


🌷 Currently Reading 🌷

➵ Once Upon A K-Prom by Kat Cho
May 17th 2022 by Disney
Arc was given by Disney Publishing Worldwide & NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I feel really blessed to have received an arc of this book. Coming back to the book community after a year hiatus, this was one of the first 2022 releases that I not only really wanted, but it’s on my 5-star prediction list, favorite book of 2022 prediction list, and on my list of top ten highly anticipated releases of 2022. I might be setting the bar high, but I have faith that this book is going to make me melt into a puddle in so many ways.


🌷 The TBR 🌷

➵ Iron Widow (Iron Widow, #1) by Xiran Jay Zhao
September 21st 2021 by Penguin Teen

Continuing with the 12 Challenge, Iron Widow is next on the list of books to read this year! When I returned to the book community, this was one of the top five books I was seeing everywhere. Everyone I knew was raving about this book, talking about this book, and posting about it. So this has subtly been on my radar of books I’m interested and I’m glad that it was recommended to me for the 12 Challenge because now I can sit down and read it.

➵ Into the Drowning Deep (Rolling in the Deep #1) by Mira Grant
November 14th 2017 by Hachette Audio

I have been hearing the faintest whispers about this book for a while now. And I’m not going to lie, I’ve been kicking my butt for not picking this up sooner. However, recently I’ve been hearing a lot of readers talking about how atmospheric the audiobook is and with Audible credits to spend… I’m slapping this on my March tbr.

➵ Unlock Your Storybook Heart (You Are Your Own Fairy Tale #3) by Amanda Lovelace
March 15th 2022 by Andrews McMeel Publishing
ARC was given by NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

✨ Break Your Glass Slippers (You Are Your Own Fairy Tale #1) by Amanda Lovelace ★★★★★
✨ Shine Your Icy Crown (You Are Your Own Fairy Tale, #2) by Amanda Lovelace ★★★

Truly, the blessings for this month for arcs! I’ve already read the first two books of this trilogy and now I’ve been blessed with a chance to read the final book of this series. If you’re not familiar with Lovelace’s poetry, she normally does duologies or trilogies for her poetry collections. And if I’m remembering correctly, she only has a few standalone poetry/short story books such as Dragonhearts. I’ve loved Lovelace’s collections for a while now and this arc has me more excited to complete another series by her.

➵ Willodeen by Katherine Applegate
September 7th 2021 by Feiwel Friends

This was a wonderful present from my spouse! I love Applegate’s writing. I think her writing is so powerful, so beautiful. If you’ve been here for a while (or maybe you’re new) then you may have seen my review for Crenshaw. That book was so powerful and left me in a puddle. So anytime I pick up a book written by Applegate I have tissue boxes at the ready. I’m ready to fall in love, but sob my heart out.

➵ The Mythic Dream edited by Dominik Parisien
September 3rd 2019 by Saga Press

Diversity! Diversity for days! Anthologies truly are blessings in so many ways. Authors from all over coming together to share stories of myths across civilizations and cultures. Every story unique and different from the last. My soul and heart are so full that this anthology exists. And I’m a little bias because this is one of the first anthologies I discovered that has Indigenous representation.

➵ Pisces Hooks Taurus (Signs of Love #4) by Anyta Sunday
October 16th 2018 by Anyta Sunday

I swear, I will finish this series this year. It’s been far too long and reading this book is long overdue. This book has been on a backlist of titles that I’ve needed to read and we’re doing it. I’m making it happen one way or another. The flames of determination are high and even if I have to throw sleep out the window, I’m reading this book. Oh yeah, it’s gonna happen.

➵ Vespertine (Vespertine, #1) by Margaret Rogerson
October 5th 2021 by Margaret K. McElderry Books

Bless my beautiful and delightful friends because I didn’t know I needed this book in my life until the incredible Destiny and I fell into one of our deep bookish conversations. Basically it was her giving me all the book recommendations and me making a giant freaking list of all the books I need in my life. This stunning book being one of them. Look, I’m going to be honest, you had me at ghosts and necromancer/witchy type of class/guild/group. So yeah, color me intrigued and needing it like NOW.


Do you ever look at your tbr list after you’ve pumped yourself up for it and then go, “By the stars… what have I done?” Yeah, yeah… yeah, me neither. This is fine, it’s fine, we’re going to do great! I hope you enjoyed this little tbr post. I’ve really been enjoying making tbr posts recently and have been excited to share my monthly reading plans. Until next time chapterlings, stay cozy, I love you! ♥

What are you reading for the month of March?

    1. Same! I feel like there’s only good things being said, but the hype for it died down. Until recently where a lot of reader have been listening to the audiobook. Apparently it’s really atmospheric and adds to the eerie-ness you get from reading the physical book.
      I hope you end up picking it up soon! I’d love to hear your thoughts on it! 💖
