22 Exciting Books Hitting the Shelves in March 2021 | Anticipated Reads

It’s the most wonderful time of the month… when I get to shower your TBRs with all sorts of exciting new releases! I will not be accepting any hate mail at this time for your never-ending TBRs. Sorry to be the bearer of Publishing News if you were hoping for a break to catch up on reading, but this month I’ve got 22 new releases to highlight!


Think of the Reader Voracious Anticipated Reads as a list of noteworthy books coming up for publication. These posts focus on books from my preferred genres (fantasy, science fiction, mystery/thriller in YA & adult) but are by no means a representation of everything being published. There’s no way I will be able to get to all of these books personally, but I think my readers would be interested in them so I want to share and boost.

Celebrating 3rd Blogiversary with Get to Know the Blogger Tag & Giveaway!

I can’ believe it’s already been three years since Reader Voracious launched on Wordpress! The blog has come a long way since its first post in 2018, and in many ways I feel like both myself and this space have grown since that March day.

Three year anniversary “achievement” from Wordpress

Here at Reader Voracious we celebrate milestones with a tag or introspective. Truth be told, originally this was going to be a reprise of my Lessons Learned in 6 Months of Blogging post but my laptop died a terrible death and my work was lost. So that post is coming later this month, hopefully!

ARC Review: Curse of the Divine by Kim Smejkal

Ink in the Blood was one of my favorite reads of 2020, and I was so excited to dive back into this vivid world for this duology’s finale. Let me tell you: this is a satisfying expansion of the world and resolution to the world Smejkal crafted… but the pain for our characters has just begun.

Review for Ink in the Blood

This duology has one of the most immersive and developed fantasy worlds into which I’ve immersed myself. I loved diving back into this world and seeing how things progressed for Celia after the end of Ink in the Blood. I found myself on the edge of my seat while reading, the tension of the narrative just crept into my own veins and I needed these characters to be okay.

Review: Goddess in the Machine by Lora Beth Johnson

Believe me when I say that Goddess in the Machine is the sleeper YA sci-fi release of 2020! This book has it all: intricate and complete world-building, gripping storytelling, and complex characters you can’t help but adore. This book is exactly what I wished Aurora Rising would be, and more people need to pick it up.
