Welcome back to my monthly book release update! January and February were great months for new releases. Novels like The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker and Looker by Laura Sims hit shelves to rave reviews and high sales. March is gearing up to look like a really special literary month, and I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a group of new releases since starting this blog in 2017. Below you’ll find a list of fiction and non-fiction books filled with romance, action, beautiful prose, and exciting plots.
