April 2016 TBR


I have WAY too many books waiting for me on my TBR shelf, so I started making a monthly TBR to help me decide. Last month I was able to finish 8 out of 10 books, which to be honest is more than I expected because March was quite a busy month. I started Ice Like Fire the other day as well and I really want to read Red Rising, but I’m going to read a few other fantasy series first.


April will be all about the new fantasy series people have decided I should read next and some other books I have been really looking forward to. Hopefully I will be able to enjoy this month’s picks better than the books I read in March!

    • Colleen Hoover’s books seem to be either a case of either love (November 9) or hate (Ugly Love) for me so far, but I definitely hope that Maybe Someday belongs to the first group. The Girl In The Ice is a thriller and the first of a series… I agree the cover looks like it could have been fantasy though. 😉

      Happy reading and likewise!

  2. Some good books you have coming up in April! I read A Darker Shade Of Magic last month and loved it, hoping to read the sequel soon. And The Girl In The Ice is on my TBR very soon pile – hoping to get to it this month! Happy reading 🙂

    • I tried Stolen yesterday, but couldn’t get into it and picked up a different book instead. I’m going to try again some time this month though. Happy reading!


    • Thanks! I should avoid starting new series as well since I already have so many I still have to finish… But they are hard to resist haha. Stolen, Fallen Land and The Nightingale aren’t series though and I’m particularly excited about the last two. I hope you have a great weekend as well! 🙂

  3. The only one I’ve read is Living Dead in Dallas. I didn’t care much for it at the time. I was still getting used to the characters and Bon Temps and then was whisked away. I have since wondered if I would have liked it better if I had been more familiar with the series. Since you’ve seen True Blood the change in locale may not bother you at all.

    • It’s true that I’m probably enjoying the Sookie Stackhouse series a lot better because I already have a general idea what is going on after having seen the first seasons of True Blood.

  4. I tried reading These Broken Stars lay year and ended up DNFing because I found it a bit too slow, but hopefully you’ll have a better run with it than me.

    I should make a post like this v with my TBR for the next month so I remember.

    • Good to know, I’ll keep my expectations low then! I’m a bit afraid it will be too much romance for me in the first place, but we’ll see how it goes. Monthly TBR lists are a great guideline when you’re not sure what to pick up next. 🙂


  5. The fact that you stick so closely to your monthly TBR lists really impresses me. I wish I could do that! I’m scared for you to read Maybe Someday after Ugly Love didn’t work out. I hope you enjoy it! The Nightingale – I can’t even express into words how incredible that book is. It is the most emotional story I’ve read in a long time. Excited to hear what you’ll think of Daughter of Smoke and Bones – I still have to try that series!

    • I always try to include only titles I’m really looking forward to or need for a challenge, so that does help a lot… I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Maybe Someday and I’m really looking forward to The Nightingale!
