Monthly TBR Plan: March 2018

Posted March 6, 2018 by Cristina (Girl in the Pages) in Features, TBR / 10 Comments

I’ve made a lot of reading resolutions, and one of them is to be better about cultivating a monthly TBR. I know so many bloggers do beginning of the month TBR posts and I always LOVE reading them, so I’ve decided to post my own as well! I will include my physical, e-book, and ARC TBRs as well as a status update of where I am prior to starting my upcoming month’s TBR.

Reading Progress Prior To This Month: 17/80 Books Read

I’ve started the year off strong, with 9 books read in January and 8 books read in February! I’m hoping I can keep the momentum going and hit 25 by the end of the first quarter of 2018, which would amount to another 8 books in March, which I’m hoping should be doable (as long as wedding stuff doesn’t get in the way!) March actually isn’t a month where a lot of highly anticipated reads are coming out for me, so I’m hoping to mainly catch up on review copies and some backlist books I own!


The Party // I saw this on Lauren’s recent On My List post where she highlighted some mysteries she wants to try, and this one set in San Francisco seems intriguing (plus I’m a sucker for books set in California). Also, let’s be real like 70% of my TBR comes from Lauren’s blog lol.

The Immortalists // I’ve seen a lot of buzz about this one but I’ll be honest I haven’t really read the whole synopsis (I have an extremely short attention span when it comes to reading a synopsis). Although I’m curious because I thought this was YA but I recently saw it shelved in the Adult section at a bookstore??? The cover is gorgeous so points for that already!


For Review

Valley Girls // I fell in love with Sarah Nicole Lemon’s debut last year Done Dirt Cheap (which I also read early!) so I’m really excited for this one! Definitely hoping it has the gritty contemporary/almost NA vibe of her first book.

Starry Eyes // Literally squealed when I was approved on NetGalley for the next Bennet book after loving Alex, Approximately. Simon & Schuster is made up of benevolent, book-bestowing goddesses. —-> Carry over from last month! (And Lauren and I will be reading for Book Buddies!)

Frat Girl // Also set in California with an intriguing concept- a college girl goes “undercover” in a frat house. I have mixed feelings about this one (I’ve already started it) because while it seems to have some great feminist themes, I’m also scared it’s going to show a very stereotypical, negative portrayal of Greek life which always angers me as a former and proud member of a school with a super positive and inclusive Greek system.

Owned TBR

Forever, Interrupted // I started this book about a year ago and never finished, and I believe it’s the only TJR book I haven’t read yet! So I figured February was the perfect time for a melancholy love story read? —-> Carry over from last month!

The Book of Broken Hearts // I’ve had so-so luck with Sarah Ockler books, so hopefully fourth time is the charm! I have heard pretty amazing things about this one, and it’s been a while since I’ve read a swoony YA contemporary romance so fingers crossed!

Are any of these on your TBR? What’s your most anticipated book for March? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’m on a very long wait list for The Immortalists at my library! I’ve had The Party on my TBR for awhile now, just haven’t gotten to it yet.

    Forever, Interrupted was my first TJR book and I think my favorite – it is sad, but so good! Happy reading!

    • So I finished The Party this weekend and it was really good, I highly recommend! I’ve been avoiding Forever, Interrupted exactly because I’m scared it’s going to be so sad, but I have to round out my TJR reading at some point!

    • YES Frat Girl was sooooo interesting and I have so many conflicting thoughts and like pages of notes (and I usually don’t take notes while I read). As someone who was involved with Greek life in college I have many OPINIONS on the things that happened!
