I’ve made a lot of reading resolutions, and one of them is to be better about cultivating a monthly TBR. I know so many bloggers do beginning of the month TBR posts and I always LOVE reading them, so I’ve decided to post my own as well! I will include my physical, e-book, and ARC TBRs as well as a status update of where I am prior to starting my upcoming month’s TBR.
Reading Progress Prior To This Month: 32/80 Books Read
Keeping my planned TBR light for this upcoming month as I’m headed to YALLWEST the first weekend in May (!!!) and I’m sure I’ll pick up some books that will immediately get bumped to the top of my TBR! Knowing that some of those will be ARCs that need to be read by a certain date, and given that I’m averaging about 8 books a month this year, I’m hoping I can finish my 6 planned books below and still have room for 2-3 books I pick up at the festival.
A Court of Frost and Starlight // Is any explanation even needed???!!! *Crosses fingers for Feysand baby*
Throne of Glass // So after finally reading The Assassin’s Blade in April, I got the TOG bug and decided I need to reread the entire series now in preparation for the last book (and because I never read Tower of Dawn). I’m going to take it super slow and just pick the books up here and there (I actually read half of the first book in April) and slowly enjoy rereading now that I have much more context and background.
The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls // They synopsis and cover are giving me major Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants throwback vibes (and I’m due for a reread…) so I have high hopes for this one!
From Twinkle, with Love // I was ecstatic when I got approved for this on NetGalley because who didn’t love When Dimple Met Rishi? And loving these cover models on Menon’s books! However, I’ve heard a LOT of mixed things about Twinkle, so I’m a little nervous to start it…
The Art of French Kissing // (Carry over from last month) This one looks adorable, features food, has macarons on the cover (YUM) and fits right in with my transitioning-to-reading-summery-contemporary-books plan. I’m also hoping to get to this one in April (though it’s release date is in June) since May is going to be a pretty crazy month for me!
A Girl Like That // The cover on this one caught my eye while I was browsing Overdrive and I added it to my holds list. I only have one person ahead of me in the hold queue now so I decided to actually read the synopsis (as one does, at the last minute) and dang does this book look intense. It was even blurbed by Jodi Picoult! It seems like it’s going to be a major mystery, since the synopsis already revealed the death of the main character, so I’m interested to see how the story is crafted!
Are any of these on your TBR? What’s your most anticipated book for April? Let me know in the comments!
