April is going to be a busier reading month for me. Well, I normally read a lot, but I don’t normally plan as many books as I have planned for this month. However, I don’t normally participate in readathons and this month I am participating in two. In case you missed my previous posts, I am co-hosting the End Game Readathon with Kari, and just participating in the OWLs Readathon. I’m a little late to writing this TBR, so a couple of my reads for the readathons are done and I have already had to make a couple of changes from my initial TBR. So this will be my updated TBR, and yes, I will still be including the ones I’ve technically already finished. Let’s get to it!
- Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Barshardoust
I have been meaning to read this for awhile now, but I am really excited about it, even if everything I haven’t heard fantastic things about it. I am really intrigued by the plot and I like that it’s a retelling.
- Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle
This is something that I have been meaning to read for a long time. I went through a phase where I read everything John Green wrote, and I missed this one in my read through. My interest in John Green was re-triggered by reading Turtles All the Way Down last month.
- Curse of the Arctic Star by Carolyn Keene
This is a new one. I had to trade Stargirl for it, because I couldn’t get the audiobook of that in time. This is a Nancy Drew book, and I like Nancy Drew so I figured it would work as an option. I’m part way into it. It’s definitely interesting.
- The Life of Pi by Yann Martel
This is one I am not super interested in, but I feel like I should. I have heard a lot about it and so I put it on the list. It might change, but we’ll see how it goes.
- The Crucible by Arthur Miller
This worked for my resolution of reading more diversely. I hadn’t really thought about it before the prompts that worked for it, but I knew I had a copy in my classroom library so I knew it would be easy to find. And it was, and it was a quick read.
- Romanov by Nadine Brandes
I’m really intrigued by this eARC I have. It’s an alternate history of Anastasia Romanov with far more magic. I need to finish it this month, so I’m excited to do that.
- The Power by Naomi Alderman
This was another recommendation from my school librarian, and I am really excited to finally have a good excuse to bump it up my TBR. I think the idea of it is super interesting and I can’t wait to see how it plays out.
- The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith
I picked this one up off Book Outlet after seeing it recommended by a booktuber. I think it’s going to make me cry, and I’m kind of looking forward to it.
- Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
This was another trade in when I couldn’t get a different book on audiobook. It was one of those ones on my extended TBR, and it was good to get the chance to bump it up my list.
- Dear Martin by Nic Stone
I feel like I’m a broken record when it comes to books being recommendations from my former school librarian, but here’s another one. I’ve heard it’s comparable content wise to The Hate U Give, and so while I don’t know a lot about it, I’m excited to read it.
- Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard
This is one of my most hyped/anticipated books of the year. I love this series and if you haven’t read it yet, what are you doing?? Go read Truthwitch!!
- Scythe by Neal Shusterman
Kari has been telling me to read this book for eons, and the readathons finally offered the perfect opportunity. I’m excited to finally try and get to it.
- The First Part of the Contention Between Two Famous Houses of York and Lancaster by William Shakespeare
This last book is the only one that’s not for either readathon. I just want to read more Shakespeare, and I meant to read this play, but never got to it last month.
And that’s all of my reading plans! What are you reading this month? Let me know in the comments down below.
