There are some months that are filled with the new and most excited releases (it seems as though Publishers much prefer January / May and September over the other months!) and then there are months when I browse the New Releases page on GoodReads / BookDepository and other websites for many many hours, and still cannot find anything that excites me.
In March, there were only 7 books that looked somewhat promising.

Another release I’m very excited about is the upcoming movie adaptation of «Where’d You Go, Bernadette» by Maria Semple. The movie premiers on March 21st!
I actually didn’t like the book, I will be posting my review with everything I didn’t like closer to the movie release date. However, this type of stories are usually better done in movies than in books, so we will see how much more I’ll enjoy it!
