I am usually not a spring person, but the fact that spring is here and I can read outside on my deck on warm days is fabulous. It was a hard, snowy winter in New England, and I am looking forward to more sunny days and to watch the flowers and trees bloom in my new yard.
I mentioned this in my March Wrap-Up, but this month, I submit my Master’s thesis (post forthcoming). Because of that, I am going to be realistic with my books this month.
I am going to try and read 3 books in April (two will look familiar because they were in my March Hopefuls list). Here they are:
Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass series)
I am about halfway through this one, so I know I will finish this one AT LEAST. So far, I am OK with it … it’s hard to shift focus to a new storyline and keep up with the new characters (should have done the tandem read, but I am reading these individually for a buddy read). Overall, I am a fan of the Throne of Glass series, and I enjoy it more than ACOTAR.
Sunflower Sisters by Martha Hall Kelly (Lilac Girls # 3)
This one was just published on March 30. I absolutely loved her two books, and I got this one on audio to listen to while I color. I love historical fiction and the premise of sisterhood and strong women … and I love sunflowers, so this book is a win. I will be prepared to cry like with every Martha Hall Kelly book.
The Lost Village by Camilla Sten
This book is a little out of the norm for me, but it gives me spooky, Blair Witch Project/Midsommar vibes that I think I need in my life. Also, it explores the topic of mental illness and the mistreatment of women with mental illness, and that is a topic I am very interested in (read “The Yellow Wallpaper” if you really want your blood to boil).
What are you planning to read this month?
