The wonderful Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacks is hosting a readathon for the month of April. The readathon is a chance to catch up on or read ARCs. I know I’m terrible at keeping up with review copies so I hope I can fix that in April!
You can sign up over at Aimal’s blog by leaving a link to your TBR. Aimal is also hosting a giveaway for people who participate. You can find everything in the announcement post on her blog so make sure to check it out. There’s also a hashtag #AVAReadathon that you can use to share your progress on social media!
Like always I have no idea if I’ll get to all of these, but we’ll see what happens!!
Covers = Goodreads
The Silent Invasion by James Bradley – This is an Australian YA dystopian that I was recently sent by Pan Macmillan. I know people are a bit over the dystopia genre, but I still really love it. This seems like it’s gonna be a quick read so hopefully I can get to it!
The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel – I’ve heard some good things about this and I love thrillers so fingers crossed I enjoy it! It seems like a bit of a family drama too with lots of mystery. I was sent this one by Hachette Australia.
Difficult Women by Roxane Gay – I requested this on Netgalley so long ago. I’m really intrigued by it because I’ve heard so many good things about Roxane Gay (who wrote Bad Feminist). This is a collection of fictional short stories that all center around women and feminism.
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus – I spoke about this one in a TTT recently. I requested this one ASAP on Netgalley when I saw it. I’m a huge fan of YA thrillers and this one seems really good. A bunch of students have detention and one of them ends up being murdered.
Bone Gap by Laura Ruby – I love magical realism so I’ve actually wanted to read this one for SO LONG. I requested it from Allen & Unwin and am actually planning on reading it as soon as I finish Strange the Dreamer. I’m suuuper excited and hopefully I’ll love it.
The Inexplicable Logic of my Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz – I am going into this one with a bit of hesitation. After falling in love with Ari & Dante I was really excited for this and couldn’t believe I was approved on Netgalley, but I’ve since learned there’s some harmful representation in this. I’ll definitely be taking note of it as best I can.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor – I should have already finished this, but it’s really been taking a lot out of me. Laini is such an incredible writer and the world she’s created is so incredibly intricate it’s A LOT to take in. I’m only able to read a few chapters at a time. Mixed with a mini slump it hasn’t been the best scenario for me to read a book like this. I’m hoping to finish it really really soon because I NEED to get my review up. Thanks to Hachette Australia for this one!
