What's Coming Up In March


It's the start of a new month, and I'm continuing my announcement series to share about everything that will be happening on the blog! Like last month, I'll be sharing some early reviews and chats with debut authors. I'm beyond excited about the people who will be coming on the blog over the course of not just March but the entire year. The schedule for the next few months is absolutely packed!
Also, I do want to mention that I'll be including links to IndieBound in my posts when I recommend books. Hopefully, you'll find this helpful and make buying from your indie booksellers easier. But without further ado...

Shout
This poetry memoir by Laurie Halse Anderson wasn't at the top of my TBR because I still haven't read Speak (I know, how is that possible?), but she's the keynote speaker at Teen Book Con which I'm traveling to at the end of the month, and I won a giveaway that included the ARC. In the end, though, I'm glad that I picked this up, and I can't wait to share my review on the sixth. 

Waiting on Fitz
This is another book to add to my mental health releases in 2019. It features a girl with OCD and a boy with schizophrenia who fall in love in a psychiatric hospital. While the plot is interesting, I liked the careful attention to the representation. My full review comes on the eighth. 

Small Town Hearts
Lillie Vale's debut sends us to a cozy Maine town with a cute cafe, a lighthouse apartment, and a very confused main character staring down her last summer before college. While nothing goes how Babe thinks it should, maybe it's not all bad? I'm sharing the full review on the thirteenth!
Also, you can come back the Friday after the review, on the fifteenth, Lillie is stopping by to chat about favorite writing memories, friendship, change, querying, and what's coming next!

Blog Birthday!
March 18, 2017 was when this all began. For the two year anniversary of the blog, I'm going to write a post similar to last year. I'll talk about what I've learned, how the blog has grown, and how I've changed because of the blog and with it!

Dear Ally: How Do You Write a Book?
This was another ARC included in the giveaway that I'd been hearing a lot about. Because I write YA, am querying now, and am very involved in the community, I was intrigued to see what Ally Carter and her group of YA friends had to say. Is it more insightful than what I learned through Twitter and Google? Did I learn something new? Check out my full review on the twenty-second to see what conclusions I came to. 

You'd Be Mine
Ahhhhhhh! I can't wait to finally get to talk about You'd Be Mine  and the wonderful Erin Hahn. I fell in love with Annie and Clay a little while back, and I've already placed by preorder with my local bookstore. You don't want to miss the story of Annie and Clay taking over the country music scene with their blockbuster tour. But, also, the book has a more serious side that isn't getting touted enough, in my opinion. It has a heart that might break yours. I can't wait to talk about this stunning piece of Older YA on the twenty-seventh. 
And then, I'm even more excited for Erin to come on the blog to talk about her debut. She's really one of the sweetest authors I've met, and I can't wait for you guys to get to see that. We talk about writing multiple POVs, using music in books (including writing lyrics), Clay's character, and what's coming next (Spoiler Alert: It sounds just as awesome!). This will run on the twenty-ninth.

Teen Book Con
At the end of the month, I happen to be in town for Teen Book Con in a miraculous stroke of luck. I've been the last two years (I'll link the posts I wrote about those events below), and it's always a great opportunity to meet authors. I always learn so much that I write a recap post for you full of the best writing advice. I'm already getting excited for their awesome line ups. I'm not sure when this post will be going up, but, hopefully, it'll be close to the event's March 30th date.
