Booking Ahead: March 2021

Booking Ahead is an opportunity to glance through my never-ending TBR list/pile and select a few potential reads for the coming month. If I’m not reading books I love talking about books I’d like to read, so this post is a perfect excuse to do just that.

Welcome to another wander through my TBR pile, where you find me wondering what I should read next. I’m not too sure what I’m in the mood for at the moment, but there are at least a couple of books I’m definitely hoping to read over the coming month…

Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – Last year I had the pleasure of reading my first novel by this author, Mexican Gothic. I enjoyed it so much that I knew I would have to pick up at least one of her backlist titles and Gods of Jade and Shadow caught my eye with it’s lovely cover. I’ve already started reading and so far I think I’m going to enjoy it just as much as Mexican Gothic. It’s very different to that story, following Casiopea, a young woman who accidentally frees the Lord of Xibalba and ends up having to go adventuring with him as their fates become entwined. Can’t wait to read more of this.

The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower #2) by Stephen King – I’ve started my Dark Tower reread and don’t want to wait too long between volumes, so I might pick up book 2 this month. I think I might enjoy another Western/Weird West tale. From what I remember this one features more modern time periods too as Roland draws his ka-tet together for the first time.
From memory The Drawing of the Three is a longer read than The Gunslinger, so I’m not sure I’ll manage to fit in anything else over the month but you never know.


What are you hoping to read this month? Have you read of my picks, and if so what did you think?
See you again next month for another Booking Ahead.

    I’ve definitely waited too long to continue The Dark Tower series. I’ve read the first 3, reading the third in 2019. Eep. They’re just not my cup of tea. But I still want to finish the series. Someday. I will never re-read it. lol.

      Some of the book s are really long, especially if they’re not really your thing, but if you do go back to them I hope you enjoy them 😀 I don’t want to leave too big a gap in between each book so I remember how each one ended.

    I just recently added Gods of Jade and Shadow to my TBR! I’ve been meaning to read her work for a while so I thought it was time to officially get one of her books (I’d also really like to read Mexican Gothic!). Have a great March!

    I also really enjoyed Gods of Jade and Shadow so hope you do too. It is very different from Mexican Gothic but then all her books are massively different from each other. It’s almost like she’s having a little dabble at everything.
