Hi guys! I hope you’re ready to add some books to your TB, cause there are some good ones coming out in April. Including new releases from two of my favorite authors and a book with a polar bear in it…
Unwifeable by Mandy Stadtmiller, April 3rd
I usually stay far away from memoirs about dating in New York, but I’ll read anything Courtney Love calls ‘gutsy’. I don’t make the rules.
The Summer of Jordi Perez (And the Best Burger in Los Angeles) by Amy Spalding, Aprik 3rd
A YA contemporary about a plus-size fashion blogger falling in love with a girl? Yes, please.
Dread Nation by Justina Ireland, April 3rd
Dread Nation is an alternate history novel in which the American Civil War is derailed when the dead rise and begin to walk the battlefield and that’s the coolest idea I’ve ever heard for a zombie novel.
All the Beautiful Lies by Peter Swanson, April 3rd
Peter Swanson’s earned a spot on my very short list of auto-buy authors by writing the most dark and twisty thrillers out there. I just love how morally grey his characters are. I’m not even going to read the blurb for this one, I just want it.
Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente, April 10th
This book’s being described as Eurovision in space and that exactly the kind of delightful weirdness that’s made Catherynne M. Valente my favorite writer.
Beyond a Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake, April 10th
This is a YA fantasy inspired by ancient Ireland about a warrior princess who can control her enemies mind, how cool is that? I haven’t even read the book and Ciara’s already my new favorite character.
Blackfish City by Sam J. Miller, April 17th
This book sounds so weird. It’s a dystopian about a floating city in the Arctic Circle and the arrival of a strange new visitor, a woman riding an orca, with a polar bear at her side. I’d read it just for the polar bear, but that’s just me.
Circe by Madeline Miller, April 19th
I find Circe so fascinating and I’m beyond excited to get to read a whole book about her, especially by such a well-loved and respected author.
Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli, April 24th
Leah’s one of my favorite characters in Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and I’m so happy she’s getting her own book. Plus I’m always here for bi girl protagonists.
Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young, April 24th
I didn’t know how much I wanted a YA book about vikings until I found out about this one. I’ve also heard it’s very character-driven, which is exactly what I like.
