US releases – April books to keep on your radar


Hi bookies,

Keep your eyes peeled for these goodies! As always, I’ve linked the titles to my Goodreads reviews or to the actual book page.


Books I reviewed before release:

The Dark Game by Jonathan Janz; Apr 11 Horror, Mystery

A writers’ retreat. Mysterious deaths. A competition that brings your worst nightmares to life. I am almost done reading this book and am quite enjoying the novel. Lots of characters and lots of side stories to keep track off and Janz does a great job weaving them all together.

Little Darlings by Melanie Golding; Apr 30 Thriller, Mystery

Lauren’s twins are in danger; someone tried to kidnap them right out of the hospital. Or is everything just a figment of her imagination? This thriller keeps you guessing what is real and what isn’t right up until the end.


Books I am anticipating to read:

The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston; Apr 2  YA, Retellings, Romance

I recently read Geekerella and loved the nerdiness and nostalgia it brought. I am hoping this one will do the same. It seems like the perfect spring read.

The Strangers by Margaret Peterson Haddix; Apr 2 Middle Grade, Fantasy, Mystery

A few reviewers have alluded to this being a puzzle and I love puzzles. This being a middle-grade novel is an additional bonus.

Women Talking by Miriam Toews; Apr 3 Contemporary Lit, Feminism

Mennonite women make a stand. This one promises to be inspiring, suspenseful, and philosophical.

Descendant of the Crane by Joan He; Apr 9 YA, Fantasy

First of all, the cover is beautiful. Secondly, a plot synopsis involving a young queen, magic, and political enemies always grabs me right away. I read very positive reviews on this so far, so methinks, I should read it myself.

The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala; Apr 23 YA, Fantasy

A book inspired by Hindu tales and ancient Indian believes sounds like a winner to me already. The dynamic of Esha and Kunal appears super intriguing. I am looking forward to this novel.

The Meaning of Birds by Jaye Robin Brown; Apr 26 YA, LGBTQA+

The cover is beautiful and the story sounds like it has potential. I am always looking for more inclusive plots and this one promises to tackle coming-of-age struggles by being just that – inclusive.
