Some of them I already pre-ordered, others I started a request for and some I already have in my bookshelves since the month of March is by now a few days old.
It can be that you will see some titles in my list that are already being published abroad but will hit the German bookstores only by now; or the other way around.
I don´t know which of them I will be really able to read this month or over the year in general - not to mention buying them or getting them as a reviewer´s copy – but I will try to get to know as many as I can.
Yes, I know I am quite late with this months` list of upcoming new releases. And as I wrote this post I saw that I have way more books on the German part of this list than usual. But I guess that is because the Leipziger Book Fair is coming up towards the end of the month and usually that means that a lot of new books are being published.
This list contains only the English titles & English covers for a better understanding if they are provided by the publisher at the time this post was written. Otherwise, I display the German title and cover.
Okay, now enough of the talking. My March list:
