March TBR

Happy March! I am already shocked at how fast this year is going already. So, here is my March TBR list. I hope I can read them all. Fingers crossed!

Kicking the Bucket List by Cathy Hopkins

Three sisters. Their mother’s dying wish. 

One last chance to be a family…

The stunning debut for fans of Celia Imrie and Dawn French. 

Meet the daughters of Iris Parker. Dee; sensitive and big-hearted; Rose uptight and controlled and Fleur the reckless free spirit.

At the reading of their mother’s will, the three estranged women are aghast to discover that their inheritance comes with very tricky strings attached. If they are to inherit her wealth, they must spend a series of weekends together over the course of a year and carry out their mother’s ‘bucket list’. But one year doesn’t seem like nearly enough time for them to move past the decades-old layers of squabbles and misunderstandings. 

Can they grow up for once and see that Iris’s bucket list was about so much more than money…


Finding Jade by Mary Jennifer Payne

In a not-so-distant future, Jasmine finds out she is a Seer with exceptional powers and has a chance to find her long-lost twin.

The year is 2030, and climate change is making life on Earth more challenging. In the midst of it all, fourteen-year-old Jasmine Guzman struggles to come to terms with the abduction of her twin sister, Jade, and with her mother’s illness. Things go from bad to worse when a series of bizarre occurrences lead Jasmine to fear she’s losing her mind. But, with help from Raphael, a boy at her new school, Jasmine learns she actually has special powers as a Seer that are putting her life in danger. 

Most surprising of all, she learns that her sister isn’t missing at all … Jasmine just needs to look in the right place: the Place-in-Between, where the demons 
dwell. 



The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty

Joni, Trina, Deb and Eden.

Best friends since the first day of school. Best friends, they liked to say, forever.

But now they are in their thirties and real life - husbands, children, work - has got in the way. So, resurrecting their annual trip away, Joni has an idea, something to help them reconnect.

Each woman will write an anonymous letter, sharing with their friends the things that are really going on in their lives.

But as the confessions come tumbling out, Joni starts to feel the certainty of their decades-long friendships slip from her fingers.

Anger. Accusations. Desires. Deceit. 

And then she finds another letter. One that was never supposed to be read. A fifth letter. Containing a secret so big that its writer had tried to destroy it. And now Joni is starting to wonder, did she ever really know her friends at all




Just Like You Said It Would Be by C.K. Kelly Martin

Did you ever want something so much that it felt like a kind of sickness, one you didn’t want to be cured of? On New Year’s Eve the feeling compels seventeen-year-old Amira to text the Irish ex-boyfriend she’s been missing desperately since they broke up at the end of summer, when she returned to Canada.

They agreed they wouldn’t be friends, that it would never be enough. But that was then— back when Amira’s separated parents had shipped her off to relatives in Dublin for the summer so they could test-drive the idea of getting back together on a long haul cruise. Back when Amira was torn away from a friend in need in Toronto only to fall in love with a Dublin screenwriting class and take a step closer to her dream career. And only to fall for cousin Zoey’s bandmate, Darragh, the guy who is first her friend, then her enemy and later something much more complicated—the guy she can say anything to, the guy who makes every inch of her feel wide awake in a way she hadn’t known was possible. The guy she might never see again. Or is there, despite the distance, somehow still a chance for them?


Have a great March everyone!
