So, March has been an especially fruitful month for new publications, and I'm trying like mad to catch up. That won't be easy, as I find myself adding some titles of new publications from this month that weren't on my original March list. I feel like I really need to mention these titles on the blog though, because I am excited about putting them on my TBR list. I already have bought Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney and Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. The Reluctant Fortune Teller by Keziah Frost and The Last Equation of Isaac Severy: A Novel in Clues by Nova Jacobs are on my TBP or To Be Purchasd list. Below are the fantastic covers and the jacket descriptions to tempt you into reading the books, too.
