April TBR 2020

Hi all,

How are you today? I feel like I saw this every month buy damn I can’t believe it’s April! This year has gone so quick so far. I know everyone is talking about how long lock-down is going to take etc, but I’m currently enjoying it cause I get to spend time with my family that I usually wouldn’t have which I’m grateful for. I got through 4 of the 8 books I put on my TBR last month so a lot of them I am just carrying over from last month. There is a couple new ones too though. Enjoy!

Continued Reads:

Iron to Iron (Wolf by Wolf #1.5) by Ryan Graudin. I started this last month, only a couple chapters in but it’s not long so I should be done quick.
Once upon a different time, there was a boy who raced through a kingdom of death.”
Sixteen-year-old Luka Lowe has one goal in mind: Win the 1955 Axis Tour and become the first Double Cross victor. If he can accomplish that, maybe his father will finally see him as a worthy son. He’s completed the grueling trek from Germania to Tokyo before, but this time is different. Luka never expected to meet Adele Wolfe, another racer posing as her twin brother and with a singular dream–to live life on her own terms.
When Luka and Adele form an alliance, an unlikely bond forms, and even possibly love. But only one person can win the Axis Tour….Can everything Luka and Adele built together survive the race?

Obscured by C.M Boers. Like I have been saying for ages, I am rereading this. Currently on 72% so I’m nearly done.

Abby Martin thought she was an ordinary girl about to start high school. But when her mom announces that they’re moving to Arizona, vivid nightmares start plaguing Abby’s nights. As she settles into her new school and a cute guy named Pete catches her eye, she hopes that life might somehow get back to normal. To Abby’s horror, “normal” becomes a thing of the past as she’s swept up into a world of immortal protectors wielding supernatural gifts. When Abby realizes she’s a pawn in a centuries-old feud, she must figure out who she can trust before she’s caught in the crossfire.
Prepare yourself for heart-pounding suspense in the world of Obscured, where nothing is as it seems and danger lurks in unexpected places.

Forced to Read:

The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen. My best friend Anna lent this to me like 6 months ago and I’ve still not got around to it cause I really haven’t been in the mood for a Sarah Dessen Romance. She follows a really strict pattern in her novels and while I like them I have to be in the right mood, you know? But I will try do it this month…hopefully.

Emma Saylor doesn’t remember a lot about her mother, who died when she was ten. But she does remember the stories her mom told her about the big lake that went on forever, with cold, clear water and mossy trees at the edges. Now it’s just Emma and her dad, and life is good, if a little predictable…until Emma is unexpectedly sent to spend the summer with her mother’s family—her grandmother and cousins she hasn’t seen since she was a little girl. When Emma arrives at North Lake, she realizes there are actually two very different communities there. Her mother grew up in working class North Lake, while her dad spent summers in the wealthier Lake North resort. The more time Emma spends there, the more it starts to feel like she is divided into two people as well. To her father, she is Emma. But to her new family, she is Saylor, the name her mother always called her. Then there’s Roo, the boy who was her very best friend when she was little. Roo holds the key to her family’s history, and slowly, he helps her put the pieces together about her past. It’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of North Lake—and Saylor finds herself falling under Roo’s spell as well. For Saylor, it’s like a whole new world is opening up to her. But when it’s time to go back home, which side of her will win out?

Continued Series:

Blood for Blood (Wolf by Wolf #2) by Ryan Graudin
There would be blood. Blood for blood. Blood to pay. An entire world of it.
For the resistance in the Third Reich, the war may be over, but the fight has just begun. Death camp survivor Yael, who has the power to skinshift, is on the run: the world has just seen her shoot and kill Hitler. But the truth of what happened is far more complicated, and its consequences are deadly. Yael and her unlikely comrades dive into enemy territory to try to turn the tide against Hitler’s army, and there is no alternative but to see their mission through to the end, whatever the cost.
But in the midst of the chaos, Yael’s past and future collide when she comes face to face with a ghost from her past, and a spark with a fellow rider begins to grow into something more. Dark secrets reveal dark truths and one question hangs over them all—how far can you go for the ones you love?

Shaken (Struck #3) by Joss Stirling
In a tall, narrow brownstone, in Brooklyn, New York, there is a girl with a secret. That girl is Rose Knight. She needs to raise millions of dollars to save her father’s life. The arrogant and suave Damien Castle is good at uncovering secrets. He’s even better at catching criminals. When he meets Rose he knows something is amiss but he can’t help but get distracted. It isn’t her terrible dress sense that confuses him, or even her obsession with Egyptology. It’s the fact that he has never felt this way about a girl before.
But when duty and love are both on the line, which one will Damien choose?

That’s all I’ve picked for this month.I don’t want to overwhelm myself with books cause I’m also doing Camp NaNoWriMo this month, and I’ve also not been super excited to read recently but hopefully I can get through at least a few of these. I want to hear about your reading goals for this month in the comments. Maybe hearing what you guys are excited for will hype me up to read again! Have a good day 🙂

    1. Thanks!! Wolf by Wolf is in my top 5 reads of all time. Kept me on my toes the whole way through. I totally recommend. I think I’ll enjoy “the rest of the story” more that I think I will.

      Thanks so much! I think I’ll need it 😂😂. Good luck with your reads too!
