Hey, It’s finally April which means it is time for my April TBR. It is also my first bookish related post on my blog so cheers to that. I am not one to stick to TBRs too much, but since majority of my tbr books are packed up due to the move this summer that means my options are limited. Fear not because I have a pretty exciting line up for the month which I’ll break down into sections for you guys. Shout out to my friend over at bookandwords.wordpress.com because I am doing a similar format to her plus we are buddy reading one of the books together this month.
Books I Want To Read Overall
- A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab – I am about 30 pages into the book and I am enjoying it so far. It’s an interesting take on different types of worlds and magic. I am excited to see how this book progresses.
- Almost Adulting by Arden Rose – I’m a 19 year old in college so this book is honestly right up my alley. I am about 20 pages into this book as well. It’s pretty funny so if you are on the look out for a funny yet relatable books….well you just found it.
- Shutter by Courtney Alameda – All I know about this book is from the synopsis on goodreads. It is about a girl who can see the dead or well the spirits of the dead. She’s a monster hunter who has been trained since a kid to kill all the bad spirits. Something happens which causes her world to turn upside down. That is all I know about the book so far. Stay tuned throughout the month to see a book review.
- 10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac – So I am hosting a readathon over on Tumblr, but fear not because I will be making a post on it later in the week over here. This fulfills the challenge of new release and I’m buddy reading it with a friend so it’s two birds with one stone. I don’t know too much about it besides the fact that it deals with anxiety. I try to go into books blindly so I apologize ahead of time.
- Some Kind of Happiness by Claire Legrand – I literally know nothing about this book besides the fact that my friend loves it and that it’s middle grade. This is for the recommended book portion of the readathon.
- Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda – What I understand by the synopsis is that the story centers around a boy named Simon who is not openly gay. He keeps that part of his life behind closed doors. Well that secret is threatened which leads to him being black mailed so the whole school doesn’t find out that he’s gay. I think this story is going to be really interesting. I picked it for the diverse read portion of the readathon.
- Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan – This is a memoir about a woman who slowly lost her mind. She woke up strapped to a hospital bed. The memoir focuses on what lead her to that point, who helped her, and how she found out that about her illness. I honestly do not read enough nonfiction so I think this is going to be perfect for the genre you don’t read enough of category of my readathon.
