April books are here! Personally, I think it’s such a good line up and have been lucky enough to received copies of s6 of this month’s picks. Surprisingly, I’ve actually finished 2, am almost finished with 2 more, and have the final 2 lined up on my TBR already.
We only have 2 debuts, 2 repeat authors, and a good mix of genres as options this month. 4 of this month’s picks were on my predictions list, and all but 2 were already on my TBR. All in all, April is lining up to be a great reading month!
Reminder that if none of these are speaking to you this month be sure to check out some of my Most Anticipated New Releases lists. If you’re looking for add-ons to put into your boxes be sure to check out my BOTM add-on recommendations, which I update every couple of months.
This is the first month, that I have copies of almost all of the month’s picks. The only two I don’t have copies of are Advika and the Hollywood Wives and Hang the Moon. Advika has a blurb by Taylor Jenkin’s Reid and the premise sounds fantastic to me. Hang the Moon isn’t speaking to me and I’m not fully in the mood for a historical fiction, so I’ve decided to only add Advika and the Hollywood Wives to my box this month. I also skipped on Adelaide. I hear it’s amazing but I’m just not in the right headspace for heavy reads right now.
Currently I have read and reviewed 2 of this month’s main picks. Romantic Comedy was fabulous and has more of a contemporary fiction vibe than a cheesy romance. I didn’t know much about it when I started reading it, but I flew through it and ended up loving it. Highly recommend if you like SNL, non-cheesy romances, and women’s fiction.
I’ve also already read Camp Zero and while I enjoyed the writing, I need more from the end. This book is great if you want something atmospheric and open ended. I personally also had the ‘Collective We’ POV, and one of our main characters is a group of women collectively called ‘White Alice’.
I basically binge read The Only Survivors. I know that thrillers can be predictable, but I enjoyed Megan Miranda’s book so much! It’s a perfect beach or rainy day thriller.
I am almost finished with The House is on Fire. I am enjoying it so far, so be sure to sign up for my notifications of new posts! I also have copies of Divine Rivals and Ana Maria and the Fox. Both are high on my TBR but I’ve heard nothing but good things about both books.
If I had to recommend one book to pick this month Romantic Comedy would be my top pick, followed by The Only Survivors.
That’s what’s in my box this month! Did we pick any of the same books this month? Let me know in the comments below or over on my Instagram HERE.
WHAT IS BOOK OF THE MONTH?
For those who haven’t heard of Book of the Month club or BOTM, it is a subscription program, similar to audible or other box subscription services, where you get (you guessed it) a new book every month. Each month members are given 5 different books to choose from. BOTM generally focusing on debut and emerging writers, and is known for having helped launch the careers of some of the most acclaimed authors in American literary history. In an attempt to read more books outside my favorite genres without having to siphon through all the duds, I decided to sign up for the monthly subscriptions. It costs me $14.99 per month, I choose 1 of the 5 books on the first of every month, and it’s delivered straight to my door. You can skip any month or roll your credits over to the next month, at any time. Since I started getting BOTM in 2018, I’ve really enjoyed some of the new authors I’ve been exposed to. If you’re interested in joining BOTM, I’ve added my referral code to the bottom of this post, which if you use, you’ll be able to get a discount on your first month (book)!
