My Rating:

On the alien, sunless planet they call Eden, the 532 members of the Family shelter beneath the light and warmth of the Forest’s lantern trees. Beyond the Forest lie the mountains of the Snowy Dark and a cold so bitter and a night so profound that no man has ever crossed it.

My To Read List for March

Another month is behind us (already). I was pretty good with my February to reads. I ended up reading a book that wasn’t on my list, The Riverman, which had me skip one that was, Dear Killer. I also only made it mid-way through Let the Storm Break. This book is taking me forever to read.

This month’s books:

The Shadow Prince (Into the Dark, #1)Half Bad (Half Life, #1)The Edge of Falling

 The Tyrant's DaughterSekret (Sekret, #1)She Is Not Invisible

 Dark Eden: A NovelUnspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1)Dear Killer

Half Bad by Sally Green, The Shadow Prince (Into the Dark #1) by Bree Despain, The Edge of Falling by Rebecca Serle, The Tyrant’s Daughter by J.C. Carleson, Sekret by Lindsay Smith, She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick, Dark Eden by Chris Beckett, Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan, Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell

Sadly, looking at my to read list I’m less than enthusiastic about some of these titles. A lot of them were requested when I was on a frenzy of requesting books because of hype I’d heard. Now looking at early ratings I’m less excited. Of course, there are some scattered in there I’m very excited about. We’ll see how this turns out. I could see this month going much different than expected. We’ll see.

There is only one title up there that is not for review- that being Unspoken. I’ve heard great things about this series so I’m excited to try it out.

I have a couple of interviews in the works but I don’t have a clear idea of when I’ll be posting. There will be more Lego Cover Art and reviews of course. I have a discussion post I’m excited to share as well.
