I’ve really been getting into my book posts lately and they’re so much fun to do since I love reading different YA books. If you’re missing my more fandom posts, don’t worry! I’m planning to write more over the next few weeks! Today I’m chatting about my April TBR (to be read) and the books I’m looking forward to checking out.
indigo donut (patrice lawrence)
When Indigo and Bailey meet at sixth form, serious sparks fly. But when Bailey becomes the target of a homeless man who seems to know more about Indigo than is normal, Bailey is forced to make a choice he should never have to make.
This book has literally been calling to me over and over for the last month every time I checked out the teen section at my local library. I’ve never read anything by Patrice Lawrence before even though I’ve heard about her a lot from other book friends. The plot reminded me a little of a film Noel Clarke would make (hint hint) so I’ll let you know how it goes!
The Boy At The Back Of The Class (Onjali Q. Rauf)
There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it. He’s nine years old (just like me), but he’s very strange. He never talks and never smiles and doesn’t like sweets – not even lemon sherbets, which are my favourite! But then I learned the truth: Ahmet really isn’t very strange at all. He’s a refugee who’s run away from a War.
Another book that I’ve had my eye on for a bit! It was actually a book-seller at Waterstones who recommended this to me since they knew I loved YA/children’s books. This book sounds like it will be so adorable, sad and amazing at the same time and it must be good since it recently won the Blue Peter Book Award and Waterstones Children’s Book Prize! It has been a long time since a book made me cry so let’s see, shall we?
The Hate U Give (Angie Thomas)
Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.
Okay, I’m so late to the party with this book! I haven’t even see the film either! It wasn’t that I was avoiding it. It’s just that so much went on in the year it came out that I didn’t even register it until recently. I’ve seen so many things on TV about the Black Lives Matter movement that it intrigued me! After reading, I might watch the film too since it has KJ Apa in it! Haha!
Nowhere On Earth (Nick Lake)
It starts with a plane crash. There are survivors: a teenage girl and her little brother. They are running from something. But what? Then the men arrive. They are hunting the girl and boy. And-And that’s all we can tell you …
I adore a good mystery! I can never ever solve them but books that make you think or have you on the edge of your seat are so much fun! No names are given and the synopsis is super short. What a great way to push a person to read a book!
Those are all my April TBR! Hopefully I’ll be able to put up some reviews on them over the next few weeks and hope that I don’t have to DNF (did not finish) them. I’ve only had a couple this year!
What is on your list to read this month?
