Princess Geek Reads: Everything I Want To Read In March

Hey guys! Even though February was not that great of a reading month, I want to see if March can be better! Spring Break is in two weeks and I’ll be going on vacation, so I’m hoping to get in more reading time then! I’ve got quite the selection for this month’s TBR, but I’ve been in a weird reading mood lately. I’m hoping to speed up so I don’t fall behind in my reading goals, so wish me luck!

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Genre: Fantasy

Synopsis: The capital has fallen.

The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation’s fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova’s amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling’s secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

I haven’t been enjoying this series as much as I thought I would, but I’m going to see if I can finish it… I like Prince Nikolai a lot, so I want to see what goes down with him, and I’m a little curious to see what happens to Alina and Mal. But let’s see if the story can keep me interested…

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Genre: Fantasy

Synopsis: Feyre has undergone more trials than one human woman can carry in her heart. Though she’s now been granted the powers and lifespan of the High Fae, she is haunted by her time Under the Mountain and the terrible deeds she performed to save the lives of Tamlin and his people.

As her marriage to Tamlin approaches, Feyre’s hollowness and nightmares consume her. She finds herself split into two different people: one who upholds her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court, and one who lives out her life in the Spring Court with Tamlin. While Feyre navigates a dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms. She might just be the key to stopping it, but only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future-and the future of a world in turmoil.

If you read yesterday’s post, you know the first book in this series, A Court of Thorns and Roses, left me in a terrible book hangover. I liked it a lot, and I can’t wait to get into this one! I know a lot of things change in this one, so I’m really curious to see what all happens. Wish me luck!

The Lost Metal by Brandon Sanderson

Genre: Fantasy/Crime

Synopsis: For years, frontier lawman turned big-city senator Waxillium Ladrian has hunted the shadowy organization the Set—with his late uncle and his sister among their leaders—since they started kidnapping people with the power of Allomancy in their bloodlines. When Detective Marasi Colms and her partner, Wayne, find stockpiled weapons bound for the Outer City of Bilming, this opens a new lead. Conflict between the capital, Elendel, and the Outer Cities only favors the Set, and their tendrils now reach to the Elendel Senate—whose corruption Wax and his wife, Steris, have sought to expose—and Bilming is even more entangled.

After Wax discovers a new type of explosive that can unleash unprecedented destruction and realizes that the Set must already have it, an immortal kandra serving Scadrial’s god, Harmony, reveals that Bilming has fallen under the influence of another god: Trell, worshipped by the Set. And Trell isn’t the only factor at play from the larger Cosmere—Marasi is recruited by offworlders with strange abilities who claim their goal is to protect Scadrial . . . at any cost.

Wax must choose whether to set aside his rocky relationship with God and once again become the Sword that Harmony has groomed him to be. If no one steps forward to be the hero Scadrial needs, the planet and its millions of people will come to a sudden and calamitous ruin.

How many times has this been on my TBR???? Brandon Sanderson I’m sorry!!!!! I was waiting on this one for a long time, then as soon as it came out, I never had enough time to read it. I’ve certainly started it, now I just need to actually get to reading the rest of it. I’m hoping to do so soon!

The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri

Genre: Classic Literature

Synopsis: Translated in this edition by Allen Mandelbaum, The Divine Comedy begins in a shadowed forest on Good Friday in the year 1300. It proceeds on a journey that, in its intense recreation of the depths and the heights of human experience, has become the key with which Western civilization has sought to unlock the mystery of its own identity.

This one is kind of the odd one out here. I don’t know what made me suddenly want to read this, but I’ve been intrigued by it for a while. I’ve heard a lot about it, but I’m still a bit in the dark on what exactly it’s about. It’s time for me to find out!

Beach Read by Emily Henry

Genre: Romance

Synopsis: A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.

Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.

They’re polar opposites.

In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they’re living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer’s block.

Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She’ll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he’ll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.

This is here…again. I have a friend who really loves Emily Henry’s books, and so I obviously want to get into them! I want to start with this one, and now that Spring Break is coming up (and the heat is returning to Texas) I can read it while I’m on vacation!

I have a couple other I want to read too, one of which I’m hoping to start today. I’ll see how it goes this month! Let me know in the comments what you want to read this month, I’d love to hear about it!

Shoutout to Books Best Blog – go check out their content! 😄

As always, God bless y’all and have a wonderful evening!
