Hey guys! It appears that we will be in lockdown in the UK for a little while longer as people can’t seem to follow the rules, which is frustrating for those of us who have been staying inside the past two weeks but there we go. The upside is that I can continue tackling all the massive books on my TBR. So far I have read Crescent City and Strange the Dreamer, both two very different stories. Here’s some more big books I want to tackle in April:
Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor: I might as well mention that I didn’t enjoy Strange the Dreamer, but since I have the second book though I thought I might as well read it. I didn’t like any of the characters and I wasn’t even shocked at the big reveal at the end, so I doubt I’ll enjoy Muse of Nightmares that much. Also, since it’s only a duology *I hope* then I might as well finish the series.
Imagine Me by Tahereh Mafi: So this isn’t really a massive book but it’s the last one in the Shatter Me series and I have been waiting a while to read it! I have seen a lot of terrible reviews though so I’m not sure if I will enjoy it. I hope I do though!
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo: This book has been calling to me lately, though apparently it’s not as dark as it sounds. I do like Leigh’s Grisha books though and her writing has improved a lot over the years so I’m going to try and go into this with an open mind.
The Fireman by Joe Hill: What an appropriate book to read for the situation we are currently in. Can you believe I bought this in 2016 and still haven’t read it yet? I can. It sounds exactly like something I’d do. This is a massive book, nearly 800 pages and is about a deadly virus that kills people by spontaneous combustion – horrifying. I haven’t read a book by Joe Hill before so I’ve no idea what to expect. I do normally like apocalyptic books, films and TV shows though.
Carve the Mark & The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth: So Veronica Roth has a new book coming out and before I decide whether or not I want to read it, I thought I should probably read her Carve the Mark duology and go from there. These are two massive hardbacks as well, so I’m tackling another two books on my massive TBR!
The Nevernight Chronicle by Jay Kristoff: If I get time, I will then start this series from the very beginning. I’ve said a few times that I ended up loving Nevernight and I have no idea why I didn’t continue this series. Now it’s over though I can read these one after the other while the story is fresh in my mind and finally see just how dark it gets in the next two books!
I am really going all in this month, aren’t I? There is the four day weekend at Easter though, so that should give me plenty of time to finish one or two books! What are you reading this month? I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
