April TBR

I am always nervous to post a monthly TBR. If I get a whim to read about a certain topic then I’m on a mission and can’t be stopped. I challenged myself to stick with my list this month and it’s already paying off. My list included:

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer: I am a few chapters in and loving it! I am a fan of classics, and this one has many lessons to be learned. I read this back in middle school and must admit that I have completely forgotten everything but the whitewashing scene. I had to break out the highlighter already for some good quotes. A quick sneak peek: “He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it- namely, that in order to make a man or a boy covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to attain.”

Bared to You: I finished this one in two days. I must admit that I was not prepared for the sex in this. I was thinking Fifty Shades of Grey, but this takes it to a whole new level. I really struggled through the relationship aspect of this book because their utter reliance on each other is almost sickening. The jealousy, and abusive backgrounds might really piss some readers off. I do want to read the next one in the series, but I hope the relationship improves.

Eclipse: I rarely read a series twice. I had to make an exception for Twilight and I’m so glad I did. The maturity level when I first read this to now is immediately apparent. Why didn’t she pick Jacob?? Why do we have to always choose the harder route when it comes to love? I have officially switched teams. I can’t wait to finish Breaking Dawn.

Double Shot: This one is next up on the list. It looks like an easy, happy read. I’m trying to grab a few random reads off the library shelves to spice up my reading list. I like finding new authors and sharing their work.

Settling Accounts- Return Engagement: This is my break into the world of alternate history. I love the concept and I’m excited to jump in!

What is on your TBR list? Are you excited about any April releases?
