March Most Wanted

March 2014 new book releases


I know I always highlight upcoming releases in my Catalog Creepin’ posts but typically those are far off when the catalog just comes out. I wanted to highlight the books I’m excited about/intrigued about that I think you should be looking at, too! I change my categories at random! You can find old Most Wanted posts here.


A Fantasy Pick

The Winner's Curse

 This book has been SUPER hyped and it’s not even out yet! I’ve, embarrassingly, had a copy of it since BEA and still haven’t gotten to it. I’m scared a little because I don’t read a ton of fantasy but I’ve heard excellent things sooo I’m going to start this one next!
Factors for wanting it: So many different people have liked it and that says a lot for me when readers who enjoy different genres enjoy something plus the reviews have been just RAVE.

A Young Adult Historical Fiction Pick (With Magic!)


The Mirk and the Midnight Hour

I’d been curious about this one because I love historical fiction and it looks interesting and then it showed up yesterday so I’m like YESSSS this book and I are meant to be…hopefully?!
Factors for wanting it: Set in the south, historical fiction in the Civil War era (YAY! I’ve wanted this), magic

A Contemporary YA Pick

The Summer of Letting Go
I hadn’t heard of this one until I went to ALA and was talking to a nice woman at the booth and she suggested this one! It looks so good and a bit different and like something that probably will make me cry. (Whatever, I like crying.)
Factors for wanting it: grief (you know I’m a glutton for punishment), family dynamics, sister/brother relationship, wondering about the little boy who Francesca thinks is the reincarnation of her little brother + their relationship

An Adult Fiction Pick – Contemporary

Safe With me by Amy Hatvany

I’ve not read this author before but I’ve heard great things and this seems like something I would like! Again, I’m probably going to cry with this one. I’ve always been fascinated by families who lose someone that donates an organ and they become close with the family/who the organ saved. I’ve seen pieces on tv and it must be so, so hard. And with this one the mom doesn’t want to reveal who she is.
Factors for Wanting It: mother/daughter story, grief story (mother unexpectedly loses daughter),  the connection between two families in tragedy

A Pick From An Author I’ve Read Before

Panic by Lauren Oliver

I really like Lauren Oliver’s writing and enjoyed (ehh okay minus Requiem) her Delirium series! It’s a standalone, sounds incredibly intriguing and some of my friends have said good things about it! I’m hoping to start it soon since she is coming to my area (Philly) for the Storycrush tour! (If you are in the Philly area you should come!)
Factors For Wanting It: Seems thrilling, high stakes & mysterious game aspect, secrets, it’s a Lauren Oliver book!

An Adult Historical Fiction Pick

Fallen Beauty
As soon as I saw the cover for this book I wanted it! I’m obsessed with the 1920’s and can’t pass up a book set in that time period.
Factors For Wanting It: 1920s, the idea of these “fallen” women who are non-conformists in society, friendship
