April Reading List – New Releases by Familiar Authors


March definitely wasn’t my best reading month ever, and I’m still getting back into my usual reading/blogging routine. But there are some books I’m really excited about reading this month, so I’m hopeful they will help me get back into the swing of things. Here’s what I’m planning on reading in April:

Jane Seymour: The Haunted Queen by Alison Weir. This is one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and Random House was kind enough to send me an ARC! I absolutely loved the first two novels in this series (centered on Katherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn), and cannot wait to read this one. I love the Tudors, but know very little about Henry’s wives after Anne, so I’m excited to find out more about Jane.

The Judge Hunter by Christopher Buckley. I really enjoyed Buckley’s The Relic Master, and wanted to read more of his work when I saw this coming out. He is really great at historical comedy, so I think I’m going to like this book, which is about a Englishman who travels to the New World in 1664 in pursuit of two judges who helped murder a king. It comes out May 1st, so I’ll have a review up before then.

Providence by Caroline Kepnes. This doesn’t come out for a while, but I’m trying to get ahead of my ARCs, so I figured I’d read it early. I really enjoyed You (Hidden Boddies was just okay, in my opinion), but I’m excited to see what Kepnes does with a completely new story.

All the Single Ladies by Rebecca Traister. This one’s been on my TBR for a while, and I think it’s time to finally read it. It’s a nonfiction book all about why there are more and single women in the US now, and why women are getting married later (if at all).

Coriolanus by William Shakespeare. Again, my Shakespeare pick of the month is (almost) totally random. I’m in the mood for a tragedy, so I chose this from my list. Honestly, no idea what it’s about, but I tend to like the tragedies best, so hopefully I enjoy this one.

What’s on your April TBR?

  1. I never do lists (plans for reading), but right now, bcz on vacation I took with me: Arrowood, Mick Finlay, Idaho Emily Ruskovich (which is awesome read so far, just started), Negroland by Margo Jefferson and Frances Hardinge – ya novel, The Lie Tree 🙂 🌳

    1. Oooh, Idaho keeps popping up in my social media, but I haven’t seen a review yet. Good to hear you’re enjoying it! I might have to pick it up. (And I do lists every month – mostly for fun – and almost never stick to them.)

            1. Well, I read other things. I might read two or three books off my TBR and then five or six that weren’t. I try to read what I’m in the mood for.

  2. This month I’d like to read more Jane Austen books. I’ve only read two of her books and one of my New Year’s resolutions was to read more of her books. 😊

    1. I actually just finished my last of her novels this year! Highly recommend Persuasion and Northanger Abbey if you haven’t gotten to those yet. Good luck!
