April TBR

So, these TBR’s haven’t really gone very well lately. I always set out with the best intentions, but then fall off the wagon and end up lifting random titles. I’m hoping (fingers crossed!), with the Easter holidays approaching, this might be liable to change.

As well as this TBR, I’m planning to focus on reading a few ARC’s and writing essays on my time off, so I’ve tried not to make it too crazy.

Every single book below is a contemporary – and I have no shame.

1. Literally by Lucy Keating

I read Dreamology in 2016 and it’s just one of those books that make me feel all fuzzy inside just thinking about it. I’m really excited to have more to read from her this month, I think it’s the inclusion of the slightly supernatural elements that I really love about her stories. I’m not 100% sure of the plot (obviously, because I haven’t read it yet) but, from what I can gather, it’s the story of a girl who’s favourite book character comes to life and a pretty soppy romance follows – what’s not to love?

2. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West

I’ve never read anything by Kasie West before, but I plan to rectify that this month. I’m not really sure why of all her titles, I chose to begin with this one, but something about it caught my eye. It sounds like something I’m going to enjoy. It’s been sitting on my Goodreads TBR for a long time now, so I (once again) have no idea what the book’s about – sorry, I know I’m useless.

3. Windfall by Jennifer E Smith.

I’ve seen such crazy good reviews for this book, I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it. I’m trying to keep my hopes low, I always have trouble with books that have a whole load of family drama, and this one seems to be a culprit, but I’m willing to give it a shot!

4. A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard.

This is yet another example of a peer pressure read. I’ve heard so many good things about this book, and I must be honest, it sounds real cute. Also, it was the Banging Book club pick for March (which I never got around to) so we’ll be fixing that and listening to the podcast in due course. All I know about the plot is that it’s a romance between a deaf boy and a selectively mute girl – need I say more?


So, there we go, I know 4 books was too optimistic last month, but I’m really hoping to have a little bit more time this month for pleasure reading, rather than just forcing myself through uni texts. What are you guys excited to read this month, new release or old?

  1. I’ve dropped reading books for next 2-3 months becuase my exams are round the corner. So,nothing for this month. I’ll be writing the pending reviews.

    BTW I like the cover of Literally.
