April showers means spending more time inside with ALL the books right? This April is going to be a very busy month for me academically and socially, as the spring semester of my third year of college comes to a close. Yes, I’m probably freaking out about this just as much as stressing out over the size of my TBR.
Anyway, despite my finals load this month, I’m definitely going to need some time to escape to reading! Just thinking about all the books I’ll be able to read once school is over makes me want to also plan out my May TBR!
Bloodwitch (Witchlands #3) by Susan Dennard
I devoured Susan Dennard’s Truthwitch and Windwitch this winter, so I’m excited to move on to the latest installment in the Witchlands trilogy, Bloodwitch. While I’ve seen much love for this series’ novella, Sightwitch, I’ve decided to become a bit of a test subject and read Bloodwitch without having read the novella. What can I say, I’m too impatient to reunite with Safi, Iseult and co.!
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (reread)
After recently doing a mini reorganization of my book shelves, I’ve recently decided that I want to dedicate some time to rereading in 2019. I really want to remind myself why I consider certain books to be my favorites, like Stephanie Perkins’ Anna and the French Kiss. Your girl is of course in the mean for contemporary all the time. What better way to escape finals season then through a trip to Paris, featuring St.Clair)?
We Were Beautiful by Heather Helper (ARC)
I’m on a blog tour with The Fantastic Flying Book Club for Heather Helper’s We Were Beautiful this month! The Cupcake Queen was one of my favorite books as a middle school YA reader, so I’m looking forward to jumping into her latest release.
The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman
I received Christine Lynn Herman’s recent release, The Devouring Gray (thank you Disney Books & Big Honcho Media!). I’m very excited to go home this weekend and unbox this one. I’ve heard many good things about The Devouring Gray from bloggers with similar reading tastes, and while I don’t watch the show anymore, I’m here for the Riverdale vibes.
First & Then by Emma Mills
If you’ve read my monthly wrap-ups over the past few months, you’ll know I’ve acquired a taste for football or football-inspired TV shows (see Friday Night Lights, Last Chance U, and All or Nothing). After loving This Adventure Ends, I’m really excited to move on to Emma Mills’ first book, First & Then. How could I not read a book that has been blurbed as Pride and Prejudice meets FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS??
Royals/Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins
I’ve been holding off on reading Rachel Hawkins’ Royals until this month in anticipation for Her Royal Highness. Give me all the royal reads please!
Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston (ARC)
I talked about this on a recent Instagram story, but here’s my Red, White and Royal Blue back story. About two weeks ago, I spent a very long Friday at my kitchen table doing homework for most of the day and decided to take a break and go for a run. Imagine my happiness when I stepped on to my front porch and had a package from St. Martin’s Press. The book inside? Casey McQustion’s upcoming novel, Red, White and Royal Blue!
Red, White and Royal Blue is one of my most anticipated releases of spring 2019. I’ve heard such fantastic early reviews that I cannot wait to dive right in. I may hold off on reading this one in May as a treat-yo-self type read when my semester is over.
