April 2019 TBR
I have a shorter TBR this month than usual and that’s so I have more wiggle room when it comes to adding more books on, since I normally don’t read a ton of books in a month anyway. I know this is a little late, but I just really felt like reading instead of writing blog posts!
The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski
I’ve been really wanting to start this series, especially with the TV show coming soon! I’m also trying to be better at reading series and books that I know I’ll love but have put off, and this series is one of them. I’m about halfway through right now, but so far it’s just what I thought it would be! This book is a bunch of short stories set in the Witcher world, and most people say to read this and Sword of Destiny first because both books are short stories set before the events of the full novels.
Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien De Castell
Last month I read Spellslinger and got halfway through Shadowblack by De Castell, and I loved them so much that I knew I needed to finally read his adult series! This is yet another series that I’ve had on my shelves but have been too afraid to read, so I’m really tackling this strange habit this month. All I really know and want to know is that this is a three musketeers kind of book, and I am so ready for that.
Sweet Black Waves by Kristin Perez
I picked up this book when it first came out with all intentions of reading it right away and I haven’t yet, so I’m hoping that I can finally get around to it this month. I’ve read some great reviews lately of this book and it’s renewed my interest in this book. I know this is a retelling of Tristan and Eseult, but I’m not 100% sure what that story even is but that’s okay because I’ve really enjoyed going into books knowing not a lot lately.
They Mostly Come Out at Night by Benedict Patrick
This is one of the books I featured in my self published fantasy post (which you should check out now if you haven’t yet). It’s about a man who is accused of letting monsters into the homes of villagers. It’s also pretty short which is a plus since some of the books on my TBR this month are fairly long. It sounds dark and creepy and I cannot wait to read it. Plus, that cover is GORGEOUS.
Peace & Turmoil by Elliot Brooks
I’ve been watching E on booktube for what feels like forever, and her book is finally out in the world and I’m so incredibly excited to read it! All I know is that it’s high fantasy written by someone who has similar tastes in books as me, so of course I’m going to read it! Not only that, but this one also has a gorgeous cover and I love how simple it is!
Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty
After reading and loving The City of Brass last month, I just have to continue with book two! Finding out what happens to Nahri and Ali and Dara is honestly a priority for me right now. If you haven’t started this series yet, you really really REALLY need to!
