5 Books To Look Out For In March 2021


Hi everyone!  Today I'm highlighting 5 books which publish in March that may be of interest to you.  These books have not been previewed in my Sunday Spotlight, but are on my reading radar either to buy or borrow from my local library.  Here are my March 2021 selections:


Accidentally Engaged by Farah Heron falls into the Contemporary Romance genre.  In this book, Reena Manji is dissatisfied with her career, her single marital status and the way her family meddles in her life.  Thankfully, she has her sourdough starters to keep her happy. When her matchmaking father moves a new employee, Nadim, across the hallway, Farah realizes that she feels an attraction.  The two strike a friendship and later a fake engagement in order to qualify for a couples artisan bread cooking contest.  Will spending more time together lead to more than friendship?

Publication Date: March 2, 2021 by Forever, 384 pages.




Women in White Coats: How The First Women Doctors Changed The World of Medicine by Olivia Campbell is historical account of the impact of the first female physicians.  In the early 1800's, women were dying in high numbers when they avoided medical care provided by males.  Motivated by their own personal loss and frustration over medical care, the book recounts the experience of three women who became physicians, pioneering the way for many more females to do the same.  This non-fiction book was written after much research and access to archives and is noted to be a great read for those that enjoyed Hidden Figures and Radium Girls.

Publication Date: March 2, 2021 by Park Row, 368 pages.




Come Fly The World: The Jet-Age Story of the Women of Pan Am by Julia Cooke falls in the Non-Fiction genre.  In the book, the author cleverly weaves together the real-life stories of several former Pan Am stewardesses who served the airline between 1966 and 1975.  Stories include the airline's flights which transported soldiers from the Saigon to Hong Kong for 5 days of R&R and Operation Babylift which evacuated 2000 children during the fall of Saigon.

Publication Date: March 2, 2021 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 288 pages.




The Rose Code by Kate Quinn is set in 1940 and is the story of three women who were hired to break German military codes.  These women came from very different backgrounds: Osla the vivacious debutante, Mab who came from an impoverished family and Beth a shy spinster with a penchant for puzzles.  By 1947, the three have been torn apart only to come back together to solve one last code.

Publication Date: March 9, 2021 by William Morrow, 656 pages.



Surviving Savannah by Patti Callahan is the story of a luxury steamship which sunk following a boiler explosion in 1838.  Everly Winthrop, a Savannah history professor, is asked to guest-curate an exhibit using artifacts recovered from the ship. Her research leads her to a family of eleven aristocrats who boarded the Pulaski together, and includes the stories of two of the family's incredible women, including a survivor.  The story reveals the decisions that these two women made during the tragedy, and the role of fate in their outcome.

Publication Date: March 9, 2021 by Berkley, 432 pages.

  6. Nice book recommendations! Women in White Coats interest me. Im a medical student and it's interesting to know how women doctors paved way in medicine, I mean historically it's always men who leads in achieving great things. But this is really good though. How they stepped up helped the succeeding generations into having gender equalities in the medical field :)

  8. I love a book that breaks me and puts me back together again in all the right places! The Rose Code sounds like a lovely book but perhaps a little too long for me, so my eyes lit up at the sight of Savannah Survives! Titanic is one of my favorite stories still so I am enamored by the powerful final decisions of people caught up at, perhaps, the end of their lives.
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  11. You have selected some great books. The women in white coats got my attention because there are still places and communities that don't allow women to get examined by a male doctor.
