Hello Readers! Today we are going over my TBR for March. I am planning on doing a ton of readathons this month. Some might say too many. In this post, I want to share with you my Middle Grade March TBR, a few books for readalongs, and my first pick for Becca’s Bookoplathon!
I have so many books I want to read this March, and I hope to get to them all! I’m going to name a lot of middle grade books on my radar. I don’t know if I can read them all, but I will read as many as I can. The hosts and all their links will be below for any readathons or readalongs I mention, because there are quite a few.
Please comment down below and let me know if you are participating in middle grade march!
Before we go any further, I want to disclaim that there is an affiliate link in this post for an online used books store called Better World Books. I do make a commission when you use my link and make a purchase.
Middle Grade March prompts:
1. Book with a silhouette on the cover
2. Book with strong family elements
3. Book featuring travel or adventure
4. Fairytale retelling or has fairytale elements
5. Book published in the decade you were born
Group Read: The Brave by James Bird
Middle Grade March TBR:
This is the 15th book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. My husband gifted me this book off my wishlist for our anniversary. I have never actually been up to date with this series, so this will be so odd. However, it is perfect for a readathon, cos I can read it in around an hour.
This book will fit the prompt to read a book featuring travel or adventure, as the MC goes on a vacation during this book.
This is the very last book in the Mr. Lemoncello series. The first book is about a bunch of kids in a competition to escape from a library. Each book is a different sort of game. However, this library is unlike any other. It has robots, holograms, games you can step inside of, and all things fun.
This is a book series for people who love libraries and middle grade books!
This is a series I have been thinking about reading for months and just have never gotten to. I’ve been trying not to start that many series this year, but I am failing. So, what would one more hurt?
I’m kind of bending a prompt with this one. This is a retelling, just not one of a fairytale. This book is a genderbent retelling of the Pandavan brothers, which is part of Hindu mythology.
It also counts for the Buzzwordathon. This round is the word TIME. I wish I could think of more books to add to the TBR for Buzzwordathon, but this is the only one I haven’t read that I want to read.
I am adding this one to fit the challenge to read a book that was published in the decade I was born. I loved the goosebumps books as an around 12, and this one was my absolute favorite. It is about a boy whose parents buy this cuckoo clock. I remember he breaks something on the clock and then starts to age in reverse.
This book was published in 1995, and I was born in 1994, so it was almost the exact year I was born.
This one is the group book for the Middle Grade March readathon. This book is about a boy with OCD. It is own voices. The author and main character are of Ojibwe descent.
One of my goals in 2021 was to read more Indigenous authors, and this one will really help me with that goal, as it is March and I have yet to read even 1 Indigenous author this year.
I am reading this book for yet another readalong. A few different people put a readalong together for middle grade march, who are not the actual hosts of the readathon, and I wanted to go ahead and participate. I am always looking out for new readathons and readalongs, and this is a short read.
I’m going to count this book for one with a strong family element.
Christine Day is another Indigenous author. I actually had I Can Make This Promise on my TBR back in November during Believathon. I think I should go ahead and read The Sea in Winter while Winter is still here!
I received a free copy of this book from Booksirens. This book came out in 2019, so it is not an ARC.
I know a lot of people pick books up based on the cover, but I pick books up based on how much I like the title.
I know the MC Chia is blind and she has to save her twin sister Viola from their evil step-mother. However, everything is not as it seems and the step-mother might not be so evil after all.
This is a memoir of the author. I have read Before the Ever After by her and I really loved it. This one will also fit the challenge to read a book with a silhouette on the cover, which was the hardest prompt to fill for some reason.
There is a readalong happening for this series, and we all know I love a good readalong. I haven’t read any books in this series and it is very long, but I am always excited to try new ones. I know the MC is a telepath and she meets another telepath. If you read my tropes and things I love in books post, you know I love when characters can read one another’s minds, so this series might be perfect for me.
This is the last one I am putting on the Middle Grade March TBR. I am going to be reading this one first for Bookoplathon. I wanted a book that fit both the dark cover prompt and the fantasy prompt, while also being relatively short.
Given the time zome difference, the Bookoplathon should start at 8PM my time, making the second roll happen at 8 AM. I might stay up a little late, but I won’t be up all night finishing this book. I need something that would be quick for the overnight rolls.
If you have been following along on my TBRs this year, you will know I have been doing a Cosmere readalong. In March, we are starting the Mistborn series.
I really think Warbreaker will be my favorite book in the Cosmere, but I am optimistic for the Mistborn series to prove me wrong.
This is another one I am reading for a readalong. I almost read Strange the Dreamer by the same author earlier this year, and once before that, but I have not yet tried this author.
I know, I really need to control myself with all the readalongs. 😂
Missing Charlie is an ARC I received from Booksirens that came out on February 25th. It is about a woman who is cursed to look old, and she is trying to find romance. It just sounds like it will be a really cute book and I’m so excited to read it!
