March Releases I’m Excited For

March has some pretty spectacular releases! My most anticipated release this year is The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner. I’ve already pre-ordered a couple of these books from my local bookstore and I can’t wait to get them!

Bottle with a stopper with bright flowers around it

The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner is a historical fiction novel that does not feature World War II – it takes place in London 1791 and in present-day. I first heard of this book back in July. We did a case study of this novel’s marketing plan in my publishing program and I have been eagerly awaiting this release. This cover is absolutely gorgeous as well and is what drew all of our attention to it at first. Also the tagline for this, absolute chills.

Every Last Fear by Alex Finlay is a psychological thriller (which I’m such a fan of) and it sounds so intriguing. It’s told in alternating points of view between the past and present of the death of the Pine family. I love thrillers that have these perspectives because it adds so much intrigue to the story. I’m excited about this one!

Call Me Elizabeth Lark by Melissa Colasanti is a mystery thriller about a daughter who went missing twenty years ago and now she has returned… Or has she? Elizabeth Lark is on the run with her son and she heads to her hometown. She’s recognized as the long-lost daughter who has returned, but is she really? This one sounds so good, lots of guesswork seems to be involved; who knows if we’ll find out the truth!

The Rose Code by Kate Quinn is (shockingly) a historical fiction novel. I haven’t heard much about this novel on social media considering she wrote the widely popular The Alice Network. I am looking forward to this novel though! This novel is set during WWII and features three female code breakers. Um hello, count me in. Where can I read this book right now?!

The Memory Collectors by Kim Neville I was initially drawn to this book because of the cover, and then I read the synopsis and got really excited. I love books with magical realism elements and this book just feels special. Having objects tell stories and having two women with a shared gift haunted by their past sounds right up my alley.

Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley is a YA thriller novel that has a Native teenager as the main protagonist who has to root out the corruption in her community. This already has me intrigued and it has received pretty good ratings on Goodreads already.

A Million Reasons Why by Jessica Strawser is about two strangers who are linked y a DNA test which reveals that they are half-sisters. This novel examines what it means to be family, involves a mother’s love and the limits of power and forgiveness. I feel like lately I’ve been really into family thrillers/novels. This one sounded interesting and is a thriller/mystery/fiction.

The Ladies of the Secret Circus by Constance Sayers is a Fantasy/Historical Fiction novel about a secret circus. It’s told in two timelines – Paris 1925, and Virginia 2005. It has the trope of the main protagonist reading her great-grandmother’s letters and being swept into the past and discovering some family secret, but it just sounds so good. The cover is stunning as well. Can you tell I pick books sometimes just because of the cover?

She’s Too Pretty to Burn by Wendy Heard is a YA inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray. It’s set against a rebel art scene and features a romance between Veronica and Mick. It explores love, art, danger, and power. I’m excited to read this novel as I’m a sucker for re-tellings of classic novels.

Prom Theory by Ann LaBar is a YA contemporary romance about how science has helped Iris navigate her life, she also believes that love is just chemistry. Seth believes that love does not need any explanations. Iris is determined to prove that love is just science – hormones and stimuli. She wants to test her theory by getting Theo (whose popular and doesn’t know Iris exists) to ask her to prom. This seems like a super fun novel which is needed when you read as many thrillers as I do.

Let me know if there’s any books on here that you’re excited about or even ones that I didn’t include. Happy reading!
