My TBR (to be read) for April

Hello lovelies! I am ashamed to say I have only read THREE books this year… How depressing is that? I used to clock in at 100-200 a year… I have been in a book slump. Merg. I have also been fairly depressed. Boy does depression like to suck all the fun out of life. Jerk. So this month I am committing myself to read at least THREE books.

I am going to start with my bookclub book since I should probably read along with the rest of my book club…Haha which is UNHOOKED by Lisa Maxwell. Here is the synop:

unhook

For as long as she can remember, Gwendolyn Allister has never had a place to call home. Her mother believes they are being hunted by brutal monsters, and those delusions have brought them to London, far from the life Gwen had finally started to build for herself. Gwen’s only saving grace is that her best friend, Olivia, is with her for the summer.

But shortly after their arrival, the girls are kidnapped by shadowy creatures and dragged to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey. And Gwen begins to realize that maybe her mother isn’t so crazy after all…

Gwen discovers that this new world she inhabits is called Neverland, but it’s nothing like the Neverland you’ve heard about in stories. Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through your fingers. As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and tries to find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the captivating pirate who promises to keep her safe.

Caught in the ultimate battle between good and evil, with time running out and her enemies closing in, Gwen is forced to finally face the truths she’s been hiding from all along. But can she save Neverland without losing herself?

Sounds pretty good, right? I am excited! Especially since I know Lisa personally. She is a fantastic human being and is very kind and thoughtful. She will be blurbing Secret of Souls too! Blurbing basically means that an author reads, and gives their stamp of approval for the upcoming novel along with a little tidbit about it. You can check out the current blurbs I have on the My Books page.

The next book I want to read, or reread is A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas to prepare myself for A Court of Wings and Ruin which comes out May 2. Spoiler ahead if you haven’t read the first book A Court of Thorns and Roses stop now!

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court–but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget ACOMAFthe terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms–and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future–and the future of a world cleaved in two.

I love this series SOOO much! And I am so very excited to see where Sarah takes the story!

 

And last but not least, I am currently rereading one of my favorite series by one of my favorite authors. Angela Roquet! She is an Independent author, and is seriously PHENOMENAL! The first book in her Reapers Series is free foe kindle. YOU MUST READ IT!!! Get it here.

326664254The Inferno has Evolved… Lana Harvey is a reaper, and a lousy one at that. She resides in Limbo City, the modern capital of the collective afterlives, where she likes to stick it to the man (the legendary Grim Reaper himself) by harvesting the bare minimum of souls required of her. She’d much rather be hanging out with Gabriel, her favorite archangel, at Purgatory Lounge. But when a shocking promotion falls in her lap, Lana learns something that could unravel the very fabric of Eternity. If the job isn’t completed, there could be some real hell to pay.

 

The series is fun, quirky, dark and unlike anything I have ever read. Plus, I have been a total slacker and haven’t read the final two books in the series! Shame! Shame! Shame!

 

I am hoping this will jump start me and get me back into reading. Hopefully next month I  will add a few more books to the list! Lets say 5?

 

What are you currently reading? Any new reads? Reads? Tell me in the comments below! I always love to find out about new books. ❤

  1. Two great books you’re re-reading there! I’m currently reading Joseph Conrad’s novella, “Heart of Darkness.” It’s a classic that has been referred to really often recently, so I decided I’d better read it and see what all the fuss is about!
