My April 2023 TBR

April is another of my favorite months, even though it does rain a lot here. But that just makes the flowers bloom and keeps the air fresh and free of allergens. April is also my least favorite month because of my allergies. But sometimes you have to suffer in order to enjoy the beauty of the moment.

I am looking forward to the books I have planned to read in April. I try to keep my monthly ARCs on Netgalley to only four, but somehow I ended up with seven books on my list for May. Luckily I was able to get two read, and I have started the third this week, so I only have 4 left. I should be able to get those done easily as well as some others I have planned.

ARCs I need to read

The Late Mrs. Willoughby is the second in the book in this historical romance series based on the Jane Austen novels. I enjoyed the first book, The Murder of Mr. Wickham, and I am looking forward to liking this one as well.

Perilous Times is another one that I am really looking forward to reading. It is a King Arthur retelling of sorts, with the king and knights reawakening to combat climate change. It sounded interesting, so we shall see.

I loved the cover of Bad Summer People so much that I just had to see what it was about. It sounds wonderfully dark yet funny.

Witch King is a new fantasy series by one of my must read authors. She has a gift for writing unforgettable characters (Murderbot) and I am really looking forward to loving yet another one.

What else do I plan on reading?

I am only positive that I will be reading the first two of these books, as I already have them checked out of the library. The other two are very strong maybes, as I am far enough down on the list that I am pretty certain they will arrive in the next couple of weeks.

Disaster Inc. is the next book about Bunny McGarry, a rather loveable, although rough around the edges ex Irish cop who is coming to America to help find the only woman he ever loved and save her life.

Standing by the Wall is a collection of short stories set in the Slough House world. I think I have read some of them, but not all, so it should be a quick read.

It Ends at Midnight is a contemporary psychological thriller with unreliable narrators and with multiple timelines. It is also a revenge story and that is always a win in my book.

I have been seeing some really good things about The Adventures of Amina Al-Sirafi so I am looking forward to seeing if it lives up to the hype. I am always up for a good pirate adventure and hope this one will be a good one.

That is my reading adventures all wrapped up for April. I have other books possibly planned, but only listing eight gives me wriggle room for mood reading and for books not showing up from the library soon enough to read this month. I hope you are planning some good reads for April. Let me know one of them in the comments!

Happy Reading!


  1. I’m trying to keep my Net Galley ARCs down to one a week but it got a bit out of hand for March and April so I’m still playing catch up. I really want to read Witch King but it isn’t available on NG Uk sadly. I did love The Adventures of Amina Al-Sirafi so hope that you do as well.
