March New Releases We're Excited For!

March brings Spring and good reads to enjoy in the Spring sunshine! Our book buyers breakdown the new releases they are the most excited about!

Here are our Fiction and Nonfiction New Releases! 

Modern Poetry: Poems by Diane Seuss

Seuss won the Pulitzer Prize for her poetry in 2022, so I guess you could say she’s already pretty well vetted. I’m excited for this collection of “modern” poetry, titled tongue-in-cheek, full of ballads, fugues, folk songs and more.  

Out March 5th!

The Extinction of Irena Rey by Jennifer Croft

In real life, Croft is the translator of enigmatic author Olga Tokarczuk, so this novel about a group of translators in search of a missing renowned writer is, too, a bit tongue-in-cheek. Also an examination of art, celebrity, and the power of language. 

Out March 5th!

Until August by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, translated by Anne McLean 

I would be remiss to not include this posthumously published novel by the great Garcia Márquez. Does it really matter what it’s about? No, no it does not. Themes, as one may imagine, include love, sensuality, freedom, regret, and self-transformation. 

Out March 12th!

Reading Genesis by Marilynne Robinson

I’ve never thought of myself as religious, but this is Robinson--one of modern times’ greatest thinkers--and I will read anything she writes. Robinson approaches the book more as a work of literature; you can take it from there, if you want to.  

Out March 12th!

Vulture Capitalism: Corporate Crimes, Backdoor Bailouts, and the Death of Freedom by Grace Blakeley 

On a different note! This book appeals to me, as someone who has been known to yell, “eat the rich!” at appropriate moments. Blakeley exposes the cracks in capitalism as a means of showing the way to better democratize our economy and offer freedom for everyone. 

Out March 12th!

The Tree Doctor by Marie Mutsuki Mockett 

Appropriate for the first day of spring, this racy, literary novel follows a woman tangled in a torrid affair with an arborist over the pandemic while away from her family tending to an ailing parent. Sex, gardens, fidelity, life and death, and the Japanese concept of transience.  

Out March 19th!

Secrets of the Octopus by Sy Montgomery

Montgomery, returns to her beloved creature in this book that reaffirms the fact that this animal is one of the most intelligent and complex. She offers stories about the animals, the scientists, and the conservationists. Will make you think before ordering it again! 

Out March 19th!

Wild Houses by Colin Barrett 

I’m so excited to read this novel by the author of Young Skins, a story collection I adored. Barrett returns to small town Ireland in this offering. In it, two outsiders struggle as their worlds collapse into chaos and violence.

Out March 19th!

Rabbit Heart: A Mother's Murder, a Daughter's Story by Kristine S Ervin

Ervin’s mother was murdered when Ervin was 8 years old. From then on the author struggled with the search for justice, with coming of age without her mother, and with learning who her mother truly was. Honest, poetic, and heart-wrenching. 

Out March 26th!

How to Solve Your Own Murder by Kristen Perrin

A feel-good mystery in a quaint English village is a little outside my wheelhouse, but--the title alone! A wonderful premise, delivered with dual narratives beginning in 1965 and in present day, promises the perfect break from my usual, well, darker reads. 

Out March 26th!

Here are our Young Adult, Middle Grade, and Children's New Releases!
