March marks the release of one of my most anticipated 2016 YA, Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, but if shadowhunters is not for you, check out what other books will be in stores next month.
Release Date: March 1 2016
A Study in Charlotte (Charlotte Holmes #1) by Brittany Cavallaro | GOODREADS PAGE
Stand-alone or series: the first book in a series.
I’ve never watched a full episode of Sherlock Holmes (I know, I know). I did, however, read some of the books and watched the movies, so I expected this version of female Holmes (Charlotte) to be at least as fascinating as her predecessor.
Release Date: March 8 2016
Iron to Iron (Wolf by Wold #0.5) by Ryan Graudin | GOODREADS PAGE
Stand-alone or series: part of a series; it’s the prequel novella to Wolf by Wolf.
I must be the only person who haven’t read Wolf by Wolf, but I intended to do so very soon. If, unlike me, you have read it and now have set up a countdown timer to the release of Blood for Blood, this prequel novella is for you!
Lady Midnight (#1 in The Dark Artifices) by Cassandra Clare | GOODREADS PAGE
Stand-alone or series: the first book in The Dark Artifices series
Cassie is back with a new shadowhunters series! The Dark Artifices is set a couple of years after the events in The Mortal Instruments with a new ensemble of shadowhunters. If TMI was set in New York’s Institute, TDA took place in the Los Angeles Institute. The main characters, Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn, have been introduced in TMI and then in the Tales from the shadowhunter academy. I still have mixed feelings about the two, but I’ll definitely give this one a try.
Release Date: March 29 2016
The Winner’s Kiss (The Winner’s Trilogy #3) by Marie Rutkoski | GOODREADS PAGE
Stand-alone or series: The final installment in The Winner’s trilogy
Another series I have not read, but the reviews for this series, and especially this book, have been largely positive. As a final book in the very well-accepted series, this book has been building up hype in the last couple of months. To the fans of the series, I hope it meets and exceeds all of your expectation!
Surprisingly, Brandon Sanderson is not releasing any book for March 🙂 My TBR pile breathed a sigh of relief.
But let me know, what books are your most anticipated releases for March?
