Our Steals & Deals feature continued into March with some of the lowest prices on quality Amazon Kindle books we came across. We also have our monthly new release spotlight coming up on April 1st so get your TBR lists ready! We introduced two new features this month, Genre Junkies and Should I Read This Series?. Christal kicked off the Genre Junkies feature with an introduction to steam punk and a list of our ten favorite steam punk reads. DG’s introductory series for Should I Read This Series? was Barry Eisler’s John Rain books.
For our memes, we jumbled into urban fantasy with J.D. Horn’s The Line in the March installment of our Jumble Your Genres Reading Challenge.
