1st of April, Happy April Fools Day! Got any pranks up your sleeves? Hahaha
Okay, back to the haul. My April TBR Haul consists of 4 books and these are;
Dirty Little Secret by Jennnifer Echols (paperback), Another Day by David Levithan (hardback), Six of Crows (large paperback print) and Crooked Kingdom (large paperback print) by Leigh Bardugo.
I got this book from National Bookstore for only PHP 100.00 that’s like a $1.94 and just went with it. That was over a year now. I know! I almost marked it as a DNR now I’m ready to pick it up again.
I often don’t read blurbs before getting a book started so, here is a synopsis from Goodreads.
Bailey wasn’t always a wild child and the black sheep of her family. She used to play fiddle and tour the music circuit with her sister, Julie, who sang and played guitar. That ended when country music execs swooped in and signed Julie to a solo deal. Never mind that Julie and Bailey were a duet, or that Bailey was their songwriter. The music scouts wanted only Julie, and their parents were content to sit by and let her fulfill her dreams while Bailey’s were hushed away.
Bailey has tried to numb the pain and disappointment over what could have been. And as Julie’s debut album is set to hit the charts, her parents get fed up with Bailey’s antics and ship her off to granddad’s house in Nashville. Playing fiddle in washed-up tribute groups at the mall, Bailey meets Sam, a handsome and oh-so-persuasive guitarist with his own band. He knows Bailey’s fiddle playing is just the thing his band needs to break into the industry. But this life has broken Bailey’s heart once before. She isn’t sure she’s ready to let Sam take her there again…
Since I have finished Every Day last January & I fairly liked it. And heard that the supposed to be-ish second book is a companion novel telling Rhiannon’s POV. I rarely try a book series with a different POV so why not add this to the pile? If I finish it, it could be my second novel as a series-with-a-different-pov.
Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.
Until the morning everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day—a perfect day Justin doesn’t remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person…wasn’t Justin at all. (Goodreads)
Some of you may notice Six of Crows in this pile; when it should have been finished already last March. I included it in the April pile because I was busy with the puppy! Also, as you may know, I may have mentioned Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Twitter a lot.
Synopsis: Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first
Need I say more? The sequel to Six of Crows of course.
Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of the Grisha world.
[This TBR List excludes book(s) pending for review.]
Starting the month right with an organized reading list. *Fingers-crossed*
