Other Books Out This Week:

March is starting out pretty good!!  Hung Up, A Death Struck Year, and 16 Things are all going on my TBR for sure... and I've got my eye on a few others.  What do you want to read... or what do you recommend??


  1. I hadn't heard of Hung Up before, but it's going on my TBR list for sure, I love that it's told entirely through phone conversations! Thanks for posting about it! :)

    1. Hung Up does look really cute. And I love unconventional formats!!

  2. Hung up and A Death-Struck Year sound like great books :)

  3. Woow! Something to look forward to :)

  4. Lots of great picks this month. I am excited about Half Bad and Panic.

  5. I forgot The Haven comes out this week. Hung Up looks really cute.
    I read Deceiving Lies (Forgiving Lies #2) as an arc. I was worried that Molly was going to push the story over the edge, but things turned out alright.

    1. Oh good I'm glad you liked it!! I'm still in my "weary of New Adult" phase, so I haven't decided if I want to read that series or not. I also think Hung Up looks adorable. I've read one of that author's other books and it was great, so I'm definitely excited :)

  6. Lots of potentially good books coming out this month. I'm most excited for Panic, The Winners Curse & Nil =) Hung Up sounds like it could be cute too.

    1. Nil looks really cool... and I've heard SO many good things about The Winners Curse, even though it's totally out of my usual reading zone.
