Happy Sunday friends of B+S! It’s March 1st, and there is no better time to let you guys know what I have planned to read for this month’s TBR. Last month was a bust, but it allowed me to see my reading weaknesses, and now, I’ve worked out a foolproof system for me to get more reading done while still holding down a full-time job, my family life, and this wonderful blog here.

It wasn’t easy, but what’s great never is …

Now… let’s get to what I’m reading:

The Cruel Prince

“Jude was seven when her parents were murdered and she and her sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King… To win a place at the Court, she must defy him-and face the consequences.”

The Cruel Prince, by Holly Black, is book one in the series The Folk of the Air. I’m sure that many of you have already dug your claws deep into this series, if not finished it already. It’s one that I was only recently gifted, however, and it’s been on my TBR list forever. So now is the time for me to partake.

I started to read this back at the beginning of February, but I got caught up with reading the book I was going to review, tweaking my blog, and poor time management, so I wasn’t able to get very far. I picked it back up this weekend, however, and I’m already about halfway through now. I don’t know why it took me so long before because man oh man is it goooood!

I cannot begin to brag about how amazing this book is! Holly Black was able to create an incredibly realistic Faerie land, that embodied everything that is beautiful as well as terrifying. It’s like, I would love to be a Fae… but then again, maybe not lol. I wasn’t planning on reviewing this because almost EVERYONE has already read it, and probably past the hype, but I think a little rant about how it made me feel would be a good blog post. Hmmmm…

I can’t wait to finish this one up and get started on book two in the series.

All the Stars and Teeth

“As princess of the island kingdom Visidia, Amora Montara has spent her entire life training to be HIgh Animancer- the master of souls. The rest of the realm can choose their magic, but for Amora, it’s never been a choice. To secure her place as heir to the throne, she must prove her mastery of the monarchy’s dangerous soul magic…”

All the Stars and Teeth, written by Adalyn Grace, is a duology and is the February book of the month for OwlCrate. What’s OwlCrate, you ask? Check out my post 3 Reasons Why You Need OwlCrate to get all the deets…

There had been a lot of buzz on Bookstagram about this book, and I was ecstatic when I opened up my box this month and discovered that this beautiful one of a kind cover design of the book was included.

I haven’t sunk my teeth into this one yet or even read too much on the plot because I believe that ignorance is bliss when it comes to reading. I want to enjoy the book as a complete virgin to it. That way, I’m able to discover the book through the lens of my own eyes, and not through the eyes of others.

I’m definitely going to review this one though, so stay tuned for a full-on brag fest or a full-on meh-squerade if you’re into reading book reviews before you actually read the book.

The Wicked King

“Jude has bound the Wicked King, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were biddable. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her, even as his fascination with her remains undiminished…”

The Wicked King, by Holly Black, is book #2 in The Folk of the Air series. As I stated a little bit earlier, I absolutely hate getting the inside info on books I’m about to dive into and writing that synopsis just ruined a couple of things for me since I haven’t finished The Cruel Prince. It’s all good though…. anything for my B+S peeps.

Although I don’t have much to say about this one either, I can say that I’m more than a little bit anxious to see how the two main characters from The Cruel Prince are now bound to each other with so much disdain and indifference for one another. From the sound of things, it wasn’t love that joined these two, so what could it be??

I can’t wait to find out and hopefully go on to read The Queen of Nothing as well before this month is over.

That’s my TBR for the month of March guys… I decided to give myself a little room for error, and only have three books to read instead of four. My goal is to finish a book every week, and if I’m able to keep up to schedule, I should be able to get that last book in.

I guess that’s TBD.

So what’re you guys reading for your March TBR? How many books are you able to get finished in a month usually? I would love to hear from you!

Talk to you soon…
