Books I Want to Read in April 2021

Hey guys! I can’t believe that it’s already time to share my April TBR. This year is going by fast considering we’ve spent the first three months in lockdown. I’ve been struggling to keep on top of my reading so I’m going to try switching it up by reading paperbacks and smaller books instead. I’ve been reading chunky books so maybe I miss holding a small paperback? I’ll try anything at this point to get out of my slump! Here’s what I’m planning on reading:

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson: I picked this one up randomly on my week off and so far I am loving it. It follows Pippa Fitz-Amobi as she sets out to uncover who really killed schoolgirl Andie Bell five years ago. I’m not that far in yet but I’m finding the interview transcripts really interesting and all the investigating Pip is doing. I can’t wait to get further into it!

A Dark and Hollow Star by Ashley Shuttleworth: Ok, this is not a small paperback, it’s a very big hardback from Illumicrate but I have been itching to read it and it’s supposed to be similar to Cassandra Clare’s books, which I love! I’m really looking forward to this one and diving back into the fae realm. This one is about a group of teenagers who are working together to stop a killer before the fae realm is exposed to the human world. It sounds incredible!

Two Wrongs by Mel McGrath: I was recently sent a proof of this and it sounds so thrilling! Young women are dying in Bristol in mysterious circumstances. They look like suicides, but could be something more sinister. I’m so looking forward to reading this one!

I Know What I Saw by S.K. Sharp: I had this on my March TBR but I didn’t manage to get to it, so I’m carrying it over. It follows Nicola who has a truly perfect memory and she must use that to solve a murder. I love thrillers like this!

We Are Blood and Thunder by Kesia Lupo: I think this one has been sitting on my shelf for about a year now and it has been calling to me recently. I really have no clue what it’s about… maybe a storm cloud and some magic are involved? The synopsis is kind of vague! The tagline is very intriguing though, so I’m looking forward to reading it!

The Magic Thief by Kendall Kulper: I can’t even remember when I bought this one. It might have been before I started blogging, which is terrible because it has been sat on my shelf for four or five years! This is set in a magical world, but the main character, Mal, is a blank and cannot be cursed or saved or killed by magic. It sounds really interesting and here’s hoping I’ll finally get to it!

The Other Side by Mark Leichliter: I was kindly sent an eARC of this and I’m so excited to read it. It sounds so thrilling and definitely a crime novel I can see myself enjoying! It follows the abrupt disappearance of a seventeen-year-old girl and Detectives Steven Wendell and Stacey Knudson grow suspicious that Britany Rogers has been murdered, but there’s scant evidence and no body. I’m really interested to see how the investigation will unfold!

So these are the books I’d like to read this month. Have you read any of them? I’d love to know your thoughts! I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!

    Great post and a nice variety of books! I absolutely loved A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, it was one of my favourite reads of 2020 and I’m glad you’re enjoying it. I’m about to read the sequel 😀 Two Wrongs looks really interesting and I’ll also be interested in your thoughts on We Are Blood and Thunder – I saw the author at a talk a couple of years ago but still haven’t read it. Happy reading, Beth!
