I’m typically not one to have a very strict TBR going into a new month – I can get easily sidetracked when it’s time to pick up the next book on the list, which causes unneccessary disappointment at the end of the month when I should be happy I read anything at all. THIS month, however, is different. I will be participating in my first ever readathon (Buzzwordathon hosted by booktubers Booksandlala and Chelseadolling, yay!) which has prompted me to do a little more pre-planning than usual. Plus I have a few other books outside of the readathon I want to get to, so my TBR for March is a whopping 10 books (a lot for me)! See the list below and wish me luck! 🙂
If you’re not familiar with Buzzwordathon, the theme is to read books that have a particular word somewhere in their titles. This round, the word is actually 6 different words: Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How. I’m choosing to attempt to read at least one book for each of the words.
The Woman Who Smashed Codes by Jason Fagone – a historical nonfiction that tells the story of a woman and her husband who worked together cracking codes in WWII.
What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler – I believe this is a mystery/thriller, and I intentionally don’t know much about the plot. This has been recommended by Kayla (Lala) from Booksandlala!
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng – I also don’t know much about this book’s plot, despite the fact that it’s been a pretty popular book floating around my social medias. Genre is contemporary.
Where‘d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple – this is a bonus “where” book that I’m adding because of the upcoming movie. Whether I fit it in during the readathon week or not, I will be reading this soon! A contemporary/mystery about a mother who goes missing.
When to Rob a Bank by Steven D. Levitt – Levitt is the author of Freakonomics and Super Freakonomics, two very popular books that cover a variety of miscellaneous economic, statistical, and psychology topics, and I believe this book will be very similar.
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler – a contemporary that again comes very highly recommended by miss Booksandlala herself!
How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking by Jordan Ellenberg – as an engineer, I am ALL ABOUT mathematical thinking. And hey, I enjoy being right, too. I love the concept of this book and hope it lives up to the hype I’ve created in my own mind!
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls – I’m about halfway through this memoir that covers Jeannette’s tough childhood constantly on the run with her family battling hunger and homelessness. Should be a very quick one to finish up!
The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis Graves – my very first ARC!!!!! I was sent this book by the SheSpeaks program and St. Martins Press in return for an honest review, and I am so excited to give this book a try and offer my thoughts before it’s released on April 2nd. It’s a contemporary romance novel.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – I have waited LONG ENOUGH to start this extremely popular and well-reviewed book and cannot wait to dive it. I truly don’t know much about the plot, which makes me even more excited to find out.
With that, I’d better get to reading 🙂 I hope you all have a great March planned – let me know what’s on your TBR if you have one, and if not, what book(s) you’re currently reading!
