April TBR 2021

Hi all,

Excited for April? I had yet another unbelievable reading month in March (23 books!) so part of me wants to continue with my ambitious TBR’s since they seems to be working but another part of me would rather just leave it a bit more open so I can have a bit more of a mood reading based month!
Plus, April means I am off for Easter break (and although I will still have Uni work to do, it will be less than usual, hence more reading time!)

Currently Reading:

I am 50% of the way through These Violent Delights by Rebecca Crunden, so I hope to finish this off in early April. It is a sci-fi/fantasy type book and I have not been really in the mood for them recently after this book really pushed me into a slump. Hopefully after reading a few NA contemporaries I will be back into the mood for this because I really love Kol and Thorn’s story.

Once upon a time, inhabitants of another world tore a hole through the universe and came to Earth. They called themselves Suriias, and rivalled humans in knowledge and skill with one great exception: they had magic. War followed. Humanity lost. And three hundred years later, humans are on the brink of extinction. Orphans Thorn and Thistle live in hiding. They are the last of their families, the last of their friends. They scrape by, stealing to survive and living on the streets or hiding in sheds. But even under the brutal regime of the Suriias, there are places where humans can mingle in secret with magical sympathisers, and one night Thistle gets an unexpected offer of marriage from a Suriia with high standing and friends in all the right places. For Thistle, it’s a chance at safety and comfort; for Thorn, it’s a chance to find the ones who killed her parents. And so the pair move into the capital city of Courtenz. An urban monstrosity of magic and might, false friends and flying cars, drones and death tolls, the new city promises a fresh start – and new love – for both. But if there’s one thing Thorn knows for certain, it’s that dreams can swiftly turn into nightmares.

New Standalone:

Technically Rejected by Jaymin Eve is part of a series, but I am reading this at the start of the month with my new smutty romance book club so I will be reading it like a standalone whether it is one or not (unless it ends on a cliffhanger or somthing!). I am actually really excited for this despite the fact I haven’t been in the mood for fantasy recently just because of the group reading aspect of it all.

My father made a terrible mistake. One I’m left paying for.
As a wolf shifter growing up in a strong pack, I should be living my best life. But after my father tried to kill the alpha, I’m labelled an outcast, traitor, less than dirt.
When I can’t take pack life any longer, I run, but apparently they don’t like losing their punching bag. Torin, the alpha’s son, drags me back before my first shift… a shift that will reveal my true mate. I never could have predicted who mine would be, but the moment my wolf looks upon him, I’m filled with hope for a brighter future.
After all, no one ever rejects their true mate, right?
Wrong. Very wrong.
When the wolves attack, my soul screams for vengeance, and somehow I touch the shadow world. Somehow I bring him to our lands. The Shadow Beast. Our shifter god. The devil himself.
Turns out being rejected by my mate was only the beginning.

New Series:

Recently I was gifted the first 3 books in the Lilah Love series by Lisa Renee Jones! So I really hope to get started on it this month! It sounds so up my street: FBI profiler, crime-lord ex boyfriend, murders, what more could a girl ask for! I have a feeling this is what I am going to kickstart the month with.

As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.
Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?

Continued Series:

Lastly, Starcrossed series by Josephine Angelini was on last month’s TBR but I didn’t get to it with the whole “not being in the fantasy” mood thing so hopefully I will get to it in April. I read the first one in this series in 2017/2018 but I never finished the rest of the series and with me being hyped for Angels/Demons again I thought I would go back and reread the first before continuing on with the rest of the books.

Destiny brought them together.
The gods will keep them apart.
When shy, awkward Helen Hamilton meets Lucas Delos for the first time, she thinks two things: the first, that he is the most ridiculously beautiful boy she has seen in her life; the second, that she wants to kill him with her bare hands.
An ancient curse means Lucas and Helen are destined to loathe one another. But sometimes love is stronger than hate, and not even the gods themselves can prevent what will happen next…

That’s my TBR for this month, I settled on a less ambitious one in the hopes I will get to do a bit more mood reading this month. Anyway, I hope you have a great day and month ahead! ❤ Now for today’s Questions…

What is on your TBR this month?
Are you on track for you’re yearly reading goal if you have one?
What are your opinions on TBR’s – do you use them as a guide or do you follow them exactly?
