🎍 Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope you’re having the most incredible day with the best readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new Monthly TBR, where I share with you my reading plans for the month of March. For some reason, I always feel that the year really begins in March, so I feel with special energy, maybe because the vacation has just ended and all that. I think that from my TBR last month I only have 1 book left to read, and although I feel I could have read more, I think I’m doing a very good job so far, I’m enjoying my reading process a lot and I’m also taking it easy, so YAY! 👏🏻 this makes me feel even more ambitious and eager to read more. I don’t have the biggest plans yet for this month more than my normal daily life and read, so I feel pretty sure I can handle my stack. I’m super excited to tell you all about my reading plans for this month! 😍
I hope not to get you tired with this, but it’s really important for me to thank you for the wonderful support you’re showing me and my blog this year, there’s not a day that you don’t make me feel special, loved and supported and that means the world to me. 😭 My efforts and my desire to grow with my blog come from all that wonderful energy that you send me with every moment you take to read my post, so THANK YOU SO SO MUCH. You’re all wonderful people and I hope we share many many magical moments together this year. LOVE YOU!! ❤️
I wanted to tell you that this month I’ll not be uploading my post where I highlight other posts around the blogosphere (Book Bloggers Monthly Appreciation) because I’ve had a problem … My boyfriend gave me a new cell phone for my birthday and in the process of changing everything and those things something happened with the WordPress app and I don’t have any saved entries of the many that I had to highlight from February. So I’m very sorry, I promise to return with even more highlights of the month of March, but obviously, you’ll see that just next month. Thanks for understanding, I feel so bad, but you know I want to always support you! and I won’t stop doing it 🥰
So, what are we here today? … BOOKS! 😍 This month I’m very excited about my selection because I have several books that I’ve wanted to read for some time now, especially sequels or continuations of series, I have some very interesting exciting titles here and I can’t wait to share with you!. For the first time, I will be part of a blog tour so that’s something new and exciting that I’ll be sharing that with you later in the month. I’ll also be reading a super-anticipated book from last year that has more than controversial opinions and a fairly unique promise. And last but not least, I’m continuing my challenge of reading old YA series, but this time I’ve chosen it well in advance, so I haven’t made a poll as before, this is because I LOVE the author, so I’m more than excited and super ready to read more of her work, especially one that is so loved and recognized. Now, without further ado, LET’S BEGIN 😊 and I hope you enjoy discovering what I’ll be reading & share your own readings in the comments, I’d LOVE to know! 🎍
🚀 Exciting Sequels 💀
🎍 Starsight (Skyward #2) by Brandon Sanderson | All her life, Spensa has dreamed of becoming a pilot. Of proving she’s a hero like her father. She made it to the sky, but the truths she learned about her father were crushing.
Spensa is sure there’s more to the story. And she’s sure that whatever happened to her father in his starship could happen to her. When she made it outside the protective shell of her planet, she heard the stars–and it was terrifying. Everything Spensa has been taught about her world is a lie.
But Spensa also discovered a few other things about herself–and she’ll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.
🎍 Thunderhead (Arc of a Scythe #2) by Neal Shusterman | Rowan has gone rogue, and has taken it upon himself to put the Scythedom through a trial by fire. Literally. In the year since Winter Conclave, he has gone off-grid, and has been striking out against corrupt scythes—not only in MidMerica, but across the entire continent. He is a dark folk hero now—“Scythe Lucifer”—a vigilante taking down corrupt scythes in flames.
Citra, now a junior scythe under Scythe Curie, sees the corruption and wants to help change it from the inside out, but is thwarted at every turn, and threatened by the “new order” scythes. Realizing she cannot do this alone—or even with the help of Scythe Curie and Faraday, she does the unthinkable, and risks being “deadish” so she can communicate with the Thunderhead—the only being on earth wise enough to solve the dire problems of a perfect world. But will it help solve those problems, or simply watch as perfection goes into decline?
⭐️ Reading a Popular YA Series 🌇
🎍 Legend Series by Marie Lu | What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.
From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.
I know it’s 4 books now, and not only 3, but I’ll take it as a trilogy for now and then maybe read Rebel

🎍 Small Spaces (Small Spaces #1) by Katherine Arden | New York Times bestselling adult author of The Bear and the Nightingale makes her middle grade debut with a creepy, spellbinding ghost story destined to become a classic
After suffering a tragic loss, eleven-year-old Ollie only finds solace in books. So when she happens upon a crazed woman at the river threatening to throw a book into the water, Ollie doesn’t think–she just acts, stealing the book and running away. As she begins to read the slender volume, Ollie discovers a chilling story about a girl named Beth, the two brothers who both loved her, and a peculiar deal made with “the smiling man,” a sinister specter who grants your most tightly held wish, but only for the ultimate price.
Ollie is captivated by the tale until her school trip the next day to Smoke Hollow, a local farm with a haunting history all its own. There she stumbles upon the graves of the very people she’s been reading about. Could it be the story about the smiling man is true? Ollie doesn’t have too long to think about the answer to that. On the way home, the school bus breaks down, sending their teacher back to the farm for help. But the strange bus driver has some advice for the kids left behind in his care: “Best get moving. At nightfall they’ll come for the rest of you.” Nightfall is, indeed, fast descending when Ollie’s previously broken digital wristwatch, a keepsake reminder of better times, begins a startling countdown and delivers a terrifying message: RUN.
Only Ollie and two of her classmates heed the bus driver’s warning. As the trio head out into the woods–bordered by a field of scarecrows that seem to be watching them–the bus driver has just one final piece of advice for Ollie and her friends: “Avoid large places. Keep to small.”
And with that, a deliciously creepy and hair-raising adventure begins.
💥 Blog Tour 💫
🎍 Magic Unleashed (Venators #1) by Devri Walls | Six years ago, Grey Malteer was attacked by creatures he thought couldn’t possibly exist. They repeated a word, calling him a name he’d never heard before…Venator. Since then, his life has been a hellhole of secrecy—hiding old pain alongside strange new abilities.
Rune Jenkins has an itch, as she calls it, but it’s more than that. It’s an anger that builds up like the inside of a boiler whenever she’s around anything remotely supernatural. The pressure is growing steadily worse and she can’t understand why. All she knows is—her control is slipping.
By order of an unknown council Grey and Rune are pulled through a portal in the St. Louis arch, landing them in an alternate dimension where creatures of myth and legend exist. A realm that calls them, Venators.
Made up of centuries old fae, vampires, werewolves, elves and succubi the council’s corrupt nature becomes obvious as they seek to wield the newly returned Venators as weapons. Wedged in an impossible position, Grey and Rune must decide their fate—do they go against the council’s wishes and help the innocents of this unforgiving land, or face the possibility of execution by the council.
