Each month, we’ll be putting together a list of our top most anticipated releases; from romance, to sci-fi, to fantasy, and everything in between. These releases might be ones we’re counting down the days for or ones we’ve already read and want you to read (and love!), too.
What you do need to bear in mind is that living on different continents we have different release dates. So as a general rule there might be some repeats from one month to the next.. it’s not that we’re just being weird. Though we can’t dismiss that totally out of turn.
For March, our hotly anticipated titles, in chronological order, are :
The fourth book in Charlie Adhara’s Big Bad Wolf series, WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, is out March 2, 2020. This is an m/m paranormal shifter detective series and one that definitely needs more love.
ONLY MOSTLY DEVASTATED by Sophie Gonzales is a highly anticipated debut. This YA is pitched as a queer Grease retelling, with shades of Clueless thrown in to the mix, and an adorable cover, to boot, and is out March 3, 2020.
We’re sure we don’t need to tell you that March 3, 2020, is the day HOUSE OF EARTH AND BLOOD, the first in Sarah J Maas’ new adult series, releases. Or do we? No, probably not.
Another huge release we probably don’t need to remind you of is CHAIN OF GOLD by Cassandra Clare. This is the first in a new trilogy set in Edwardian London, following the events of the Infernal Devices series, and this is also out March 3, 2020.
And yet another exciting release for March 3, 2020, is THE MIDNIGHT LIE by Marie Rutkoski. Not only is this a spinoff series set in the same world as The Winner’s Curse but it’s the author’s first release since the end of the aforementioned series.
With a strapline of standalone paranormal romance, KISS OF VENGEANCE by Samantha Young is actually the second in a series but is clearly only interconnected to book one rather than a continuation. Expect wolves, vampires and immortality on its release date of March 3, 2020.
AND THE STARS WERE SHINING BRIGHTLY by Danielle Jawando is a highly anticipated debut from a British YA voice. Dealing with tough subjects of suicide and bullying this novel sounds hopeful and rich. It is out on March 5, 2020 and Micky wants to scream from the rooftops about this one.
THE RICH BOY by Kylie Scott is a standalone contemporary romance out on March 9, 2020. The blurb sounds appealing with a work place situation, a guy who loves Austen and complications of the rich. Sign us up!
UNDERCOVER BROMANCE is the second in Lyssa Kay Adam’s Bromance Book Club series about men who read romance to woo, or win back, their lady loves. This one features a character who I think got a lot of love from readers in book one. UNDERCOVER BROMANCE is out March 10, 2020.
THE HOUSE IN THE CERULEAN SEA by T.J. Klune is enchanting, melancholy, heartbreaking, wonderful, delightful.. honestly, Hollis could go on just rattling off words to describe it, but this queer fantasy needs to be on your TBR for sure. You’ll be able to get your hands on it as of March 17, 2020.
THE ELECTRIC HEIR is the follow up to Victoria Lee’s THE FEVER KING and you can get it March 17, 2020.
IF I NEVER MET YOU by Mhairi McFarlane, author of one of Hollis’ top reads of 2019, is out March 24, 2020. This is an opposites attract/fake dating/office romance and yeah, that sounds amazing, but honestly, no matter what the topic, this author should be on everyone’s radar.
THORN by Intisar Khanani is a retelling inspired by the Brothers Grimm Goose Girl. This story sounds like a mix of royalty, power struggles and switched identity. With that blurb and gorgeous cover, there will be no resistane on its release on March 24, 2020.
