US releases – April books to keep on your radar

new-releases-2

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.
