March 2021 Book Releases I Want to Read

Posted February 22, 2021 by shooting in Discussion / 29 Comments

There are so many books coming out in 2021, and while I try and add the ones I want to read to my Amazon or Goodreads lists, I don’t always remember exactly WHEN they are being released. I figured it might be a good idea to create monthly lists. Today, I have some March 2021 book releases.

March 1st

The Wedding Game by Meghan Quinn

Why I Want to Read:  The Wedding Game is a reality TV show where you compete for the title of Top DIY Wedding Expert. It’s a DIY-type of show. I mean, one of the protagonists has an Etsy shop and is a crafting extraordinaire! I love this premise so much. It’s like a romance version of the show Making It, which I’m obsessed with and need a third season of ASAP.

March 2nd

The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner

Why I Want to Read: Umm…badass women trying to get back at the men who oppress them? A book that focuses on 18th century London AND modern-day London? A mystery?? I’m definitely all in for these plot points. I love a good mystery and this one sounds super fascinating!!!

Every Last Fear by Alex Finlay

Why I Want to Read:  A family becomes famous from a true crime documentary. Now, in the present, almost the entire family is found dead. Matt, one of the sons, is now trying to figure out if it really was a horrible accident or not. Again, I’m a big fan of mysteries and this one has a double dose of mysteries!! Plus, I like the true crime documentary aspect.

March 9th

The Girls Are All So Nice Here by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn 

Why I Want to Read:  I read Flynn’s YA book (under L.E. Flynn) All Eyes on Her last year and absolutely loved it. This one is for adults but it sounds like just as great as a mystery/thriller. Two former friends go to their high school reunion…but someone wants revenge. Dun-dun- DUNNNN!!!! Seriously though – how good does that sound?

Last Call: A True Story of Love, Lust, and Murder in Queer New York by Elon Green

Why I Want to Read: It should be no surprise that I find true crime fascinating, since I love mysteries and thrillers. This book is about the Last Call Killer who targeted gay men in the 80’s and 90’s. Most people haven’t even heard of his serial killer, because of of the people he killed. That’s not right; these men should be remembered. I definitely want to read this one!

The Windsor Knot by SJ Bennett 

Why I Want to Read:  Queen Elizabeth solves a crime! I mean, how fun is that?? I love a good cozy mystery and that’s what this reminds me of…and I can’t bypass seeing the Queen as a “detective.” Color me intrigued for sure!

March 23rd

The Lost Village by Camilla Sten

Why I Want to Read:  I know a lot of people are tired of the whole podcast trope in mysteries these days. Personally, I still love them. HOWEVER, this one is based around a documentary film, which is a fun little twist. The protagonist is the filmmaker who is obsessed with the so called “Lost Village” where her grandmother’s entire family disappeared. Again, I can’t turn down an intriguing mystery like that!! Can you?


I’m sure there are more March 2021 Book Releases that I would be interested in. If you have any of your own must-reads to share, please let me know! I’m going to work on a post for April books, but let me know if you want to keep seeing these for every month.

  1. I had an ARC copy of Every Last Fear and it was really good! Definitely make room for that one! I am adding The Wedding Game and The Girls Are All So Nice Here to my list.

  2. Theres a lot of great books here! Mu tbr is so long I’m trying to avoid looking and buying new books for a month or two but Every Last Fear is definitely something I would enjoy!

  3. The Wedding Game sounds adorable – a perfect read for a DIY-er! Also, I don’t think it’s a book I’d be into reading personally, but I have to agree – I love the idea of the Queen as a detective. So fun!

    I love true crime and thrillers. The Girls Are All So Nice Here sounds right up my alley. I’ll have to keep my eye out for that one!

  5. Ok, you are challenging me to read some mysteries. Why haven’t I read one since last year? 2021 is going to have to add a mystery or two. Thanks for these recs. Hope you’re doing well with the Reading Challenge. I’m doing my best!

  6. Lauren, these all sound interesting! The Windsor Knot sounds like one I would really enjoy. Lately, I’m into lighter reading. Just finished a Stephanie Plum novel although it wasn’t as good as the previous ones. It was OK. Still getting through Drums of Autumn. So, I’m looking forward to fresher material. Thanks for sharing so many new titles. p.s. Is L.E. Flynn also Gillian Flynn? :>

  7. Ooh the mystery with the documentary sounds really good! I love hearing about what’s coming out. I spend so much time reading, but I don’t really focus on new books vs backlist, so I love getting hints at books that are to come!

  8. Meghan Quinn is one of my auto-buy authors. I have this one and am actually starting reading today either at lunch or later, depending on how my afternoon goes. I have to go get my second COVID shot, so don’t know that I’ll have a real lunch other than in the car on the way back from getting my shot. Hope you enjoy these!

    I keep seeing positive reviews for The Wedding Game by Meghan Quinn, it sounds like a ton of fun! For March I’m soooo excited for Cookie O’Gorman’s latest release, her books always make me sigh out loud and smile soooooo much.

  10. The Wedding Game sounds really cute. I love that there is a main character who makes crafts. I’m interested in Every Last Fear as well. I have only read one book with a podcast in the center of the plot but I don’t read that many mysteries. The Lost Village’s cover looks as ominous as its description so that one is on my radar now. I’m very excited about Once Upon a Quinceañera! It just came out today (:
