Most Anticipated Releases — March 2018

Back in the saddle again! It’s crazy how fast these months seem to be going by, but I’m going to try not to think about that.

Instead, I’m going to share with you my most anticipated book releases coming in March. I even have books on here this time that aren’t strictly YA. I’m so proud of me.

Children of Blood and BonePerhaps the book I’m most looking forward to out of all of them is Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. The hype for it has been insane and apparently also well-deserved.

Zélie Adebola’s world was once full of magic and people who could control flames, harness waves, and even summon souls, but after the magic disappeared, a ruthless king began hunting down maji.

Alongside a rebel princess, Zélie must hide her growing powers and elude her enemies, including the crown prince. Steeped in West African culture and beliefs, Children of Blood and Bone sounds like it hits all the right targets for me. Plus, look at that cover. Absolutely stunning.

Release date: March 6th

Thank you, NetGalley, for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

My second foray into contemporary free verse poetry went much better than my last, if my high rating is any indication. The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One is my first read from Amanda Lovelace, covering topics ranging from historic female oppression to the 2017 Women’s March.

And I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
