Alright, everyone. April. Probably my favorite month of the year because it’s my birthday. I’ll be turning 23 in two days!! Very exciting times, tbh.
I also decided — very last minute — to do a readathon and this is my TBR for it! Very exciting stuff here.
But, anyways, I’m sure you’re curious about what I’ll be reading.
I have a couple of ARCs that I want to get through. These are all books that are publishing in May! I’m sure that I’ll get through all of these, and maybe get a jump on some of the June ARCs I have.
I’m going to read this with the lovely Jaynie on Instagram! If you do bookstagram at all, you should give her a follow. Her pictures are always beautiful and she’s just a wonderful person.
I’ve never watched Buzzfeed Unsolved, but I thought that the prompts looked fun. Haven’t heard of this readathon? Click here to read the announcement post! I’ll be doing weekly check-ins throughout the month and the books I finish will be reviewed there!
I decided to join in and it’s not too late to join up as well! I’m taking Shane’s path. Shane is, apparently, a skeptic. While I desperately want to believe, I have a tendency to debunk things and also make fun of shows when I think they’re being ridiculous.
Anyways, here we go since this is the bulk of my TBR.
- The Harrowing Hunt For Bigfoot: Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
For this prompt, I have to read a book about a mythical creature or a monster. I’ve been wanting to reread this, so I figured that the god Anansi fit well into this!
- The Strange Disappearance of DB Cooper: A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
I don’t know about you, but I find DB Cooper so interesting. And, for this book, I have to read a mystery or a thriller. I’ve had this on my TBR for a while, so I figured that reading this would be a good idea.
- The Haunting of the Salem Witch Trials: The Waking Forest by Alyssa Wees
Literally, this book has the word “witch” in the description. Plus, I have this book checked out from the library, so I think it’s a great book to read for a prompt that calls for witches.
- The Horrifying Murders of the Zodiac Killer: A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
The Zodiac is such an interesting killer. Like, damn. So fascinating. And, for this prompt, I have to read a retelling! This book is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Again, I have it from the library, too.
- The Secret Society of the Illuminati: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I don’t really read about secret societies, so I was super glad that Laura gave book suggestions with the prompts. I’ve owned this book for a while, too, and I really want to try the series since I’m hit or miss with Kristoff’s books.
- The Suspicious Assassination of JFK: Red Sister by Mark Lawrence
Funny enough, the night before writing this post to schedule it, I watched The X-Files episode about the cigarette man and how he killed JFK. Funny how that works, right? But, I love Mark Lawrence. I don’t know why I’ve procrastinated on this series. But I’m fixing that here and now.
- The Demonic Goatman’s Bridge: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
Didn’t Ghost Adventures go to that place? I’m pretty sure I laughed through that whole episode. Like always. But, this book has demons and I know everyone loves it, so why not give this series a try?
- The Thrilling Gardner Museum Heist: Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett
I’m from a town called Gardner and I’m nearly 100% sure that there’s never been a heist at that museum, but here we are. I read Vigilance by this author last year, so I’m very excited to read this heist!
- 3 Horrifying Cases of Ghosts and Demons: Black Enough edited by Ibi Zoboi
For this prompt, I have to read an anthology! I don’t really read those, but I’ve had this on my radar and I think that I’d like it. So, why not?
- The Treacherous Treasure Hunt of Forrest Fenn: When the Sky Fell on Splendor by Emily Henry
This treasure hunt is actually fascinating. I watched an episode of Expedition Unknown that featured this. If you haven’t watched it, you should. Also, Josh Gates is the best. But, I want to read this book and these kids find something, so I’m calling it an adventure/quest.
Okay, those are my picks for this month. And, as always…
What book are you most looking forward to this month?
Are you doing Unsolvedathon?
Have you read any of my choices?
