March TBR

Evening Bookworms,

Today I’m going to be talking about the books that are on my March TBR list. I’m setting a mini list this month as currently I’m not getting through books as quickly as I would like to. Juggling an 18 month old, running a home and heading out to the day job is pretty full on atm. Reading is a great passion of mine though and it is something I love to do whenever I get a free half hour to myself.

If any of you have read the books that I’ve listed down below then please do leave a comment letting me know what you thought of it.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Whatever you’ve heard about Caraval, it doesn’t compare to the reality. It’s more than just a game or a performance. It’s the closest you’ll ever find to magic in this world.

Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over. caraval
But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend.

This is a new debut novel from Stephanie Garber. Its been a book that has been on my must buy list long before it was published. The book itself is stunning. In the UK the hard cover has four different designs. My copy had the dress on it. Simply beautiful.

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has travelled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from passenger a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

I’ve always been a fan of time travel and have recently come across this book from other bloggers talking about the second book in the series.

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.
The saga that began with Illuminae continues on board the space station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of BeiTech’s assault. Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter, Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while they are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.gemina

I really enjoyed the first book in the trilogy and am hoping that this one is going to be even better. I’ve heard good things about Gemina.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Everyday the same.
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cosy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
Until today! gott

I know that this book has been out for a while now but it is one I have never got round to reading. I still need to see the film but want to make sure I’ve read the novel first.

I’m over half way through Caraval now and can say that I’m thoroughly enjoying this debut novel. Keep checking back for a review on this book in the coming weeks.
