With yet another month behind us, and my ingestion of books slowing to a crawl, I thought what better way to keep myself accountable than writing the books I want to read down.
Some of these books have been on my shelf for a while, and some of them are brand new to my stack of books, but all of them will hopefully be read in April.
Interested to see which books are on the top of my TBR? Keep on reading to find out my thoughts and opinions.

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
One, this cover is beautiful. Two, everyone and their mom has picked this up to review. And three, I am currently obsessed with YA fantasy. I picked his book up when it was published on March 7, and it honestly just can’t sit on my TBR any longer.
With the release of the live action remake of Beauty and the Beast on March 17, I was purchasing B&TB retellings left, right, and centre. As such, I picked up Meagan Spooner’s retelling when it was published on March 14. A cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures is just the right amount of fantasy to get me pumped for the May release of A Court of Wings and Ruin, also a B&TB retelling, on May 3.
The Sultan, the Vampyr, and the Soothsayer by Lucille Turner
What is better than a story about everyone’s favourite Count Dracula? One that adds a historical element to the legend that has captivated readers since Bram Stoker publication of Dracula in 1897. The lovely author, Lucille Turner, sent me a copy for review, and now that school isn’t as chaotic I think its as good a time as any to tackle the 484 page historical fiction.
Vimy by Pierre Burton
This book is on my TBR because I started reading it way back in Nov. and then stopped on page 112. I think I stopped for two reasons. One, I had just inundated myself with World War I book after World War I book, and two, Vimy is a very hard topic to read about. Burton took an entire chapter just to explain the stench of decay experienced by the soldiers at Vimy, so it was overwhelming to say the least. But with the centennial of the Battle of Vimy Ridge on April 9, I feel almost obligated to finish the book.

And that is my TBR for the month of April.
Now these are just the books I am going to get to, hopefully it’s a fruitful reading month and I can have a few more books to add to the books I finished in April.
