April 2022 TBR
Good morning fellow bookworms! March has officially ended and the beautiful month of April has begun (also the month of my birthday, so I may be a little biased). I wrapped up my reading month a few days ago in this post, so now it’s time for the next step: setting my April TBR! I’m very much a mood reader, so the chances that I’m actually going to stick with this list are quite slim, but I hope to be able to scratch at least a few of them off!
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
This one is a no-brainer. I finished A Court of Thorns and Roses a few days ago and absolutely loved it, so naturally I am going to read the second book in the series. It’s supposed to be even better than the first book and it has a Goodreads rating of 4.61, which is absolutely crazy, so this is going to be fun!
Take A Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
Also kind of a no-brainer, since I finished Get A Life, Chloe Brown in March, although I didn’t enjoy it all that much. I’m gonna give the second book in the series a go, but if it has more of the same unnecessarily graphic sexual content, I’m DNF’ing.
Misery by Stephen King
I’m so excited for this one, though also a little scared since it’s kind of outside of my comfort zone. I used to read a lot of (psychological) thrillers, but I’ve kind of been reading a lot of lighthearted, fun Young Adult, fantasy and romance novels, so we’ll have to see if I’m still into the thrillers. I’ll keep you posted!
November 9 by Colleen Hoover
I’ve devoured two CoHo novels in the past few months and I’ve really been wanting to get my hands on this one. I finally found this one in my local bookshop and I’m so excited. I’ve heard so many good things about it, I can’t wait.
The Comfort Book by Matt Haig
I’ve wanted to read this book for a while now, but I could only ever find Hardcover copies that cost like 25 euros and I didn’t really want to pay that much for such a tiny book, so I decided to wait. I finally found a paperback edition for 9 pounds in the airport bookshop when I was in Nottingham, so I decided to buy it! I just finished Notes on a Nervous Planet and am now reading Reasons to Stay Alive, so I’ll probably start on The Comfort Book after I finish that one. All three books have fairly short chapters, so they’re lovely books to have as a second or third read to pick up when you’ve only got a couple of minutes.
Verity by Colleen Hoover
Same story as November 9 by Colleen Hoover. I finally got my hands on this one a while ago after reading so many amazing reviews. I can’t wait to get started on this one. I’m really looking forward to Ugly Love as well, but I’ve already discovered that I can’t read too many CoHo’s in a short period of time, so it’ll have to wait a little.
Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Ever since reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, I’ve wanted to read Daisy Jones and the Six. I loved Evelyn Hugo and the plot of Daisy Jones sounds amazing. I finally bought a copy, so let the fun begin!
Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson
Good Girl, Bad Blood was another Birmingham Airport bookshop find and so was the third part of this series, As Good As Dead. Buy 1 get 1 50% off, baby! Anyway, I read A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder last year and absolutely loved it, so I decided that I wanted to read the rest of the series as well. Also, I challenged myself to actually finish some of the series I started this year, so I guess I have no choice!
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
I’m currently at page three-hundred something of the Prisoner of Azkaban for my Rereading Harry Potter series, which means that after tomorrows post, there’s going to be two more weeks/posts of the Prisoner of Azkaban, after which we’ll be starting on the Goblet of Fire. I’m so excited, shit is getting pretty Sirius!
The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss
Yes, this is weird. I started this book just before Christmas and I didn’t get the chance to finish it in time, but I don’t want to DNF, because I like the book. So I just thought I’d pick it up again so it doesn’t stay on my shelf half unread until next Christmas.
Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig
I’m about a third of the way through Reasons to Stay Alive. It’s wonderful so far and it’s probably best enjoyed when you read a couple of pages at a time during breakfast or a little coffee break or whatever.
The Gifts of Reading by Jennie Orchard
Might DNF. I’m about 16% in and I’m really bored.. It’s a series of short stories from various writers about gifting books and so far I’ve only enjoyed one of them. We’ll see.
So I’ve been seeing a lot of people tracking their physical TBR and trying to reduce theirs, so I decided that I wanted to give it a go as well. I took inventory of all of my books, both physical and digital editions and counted how many books were still unread. I came to a grand total of 444 books, out of which 249 are still unread. Naturally, I put myself on a book-buying ban until at least my birthday, because this is absolutely crazy. I’m going to try to reduce my TBR and I’ll keep you guys posted!
