April Releases!

Woohoo! April is here! And you know what that means—more books! Okay, and spring is here. And there’s nothing like reading a new book out in the sun.

And if you’re anything like me, you probably want more titles than you’ll be able to read. I wish I could list ALL of April’s releases, but in the interest of our wallets, I’ve decided to only list some. So here’s a list of the select few titles that I’m really excited about!

      I am so so SO excited for THE FALSE PRINCE! And the MASQUE OF RED DEATH and THE BOOK OF BLOOD AND SHADOW both sound dark and fascinating THE WICKED AND THE JUST has such a fantastic title – that alone makes me want to read it!

      And I agree – this is a fantastic month for books!

    I just read THE FALSE PRINCE and it was awesome! Great high fantasy. Although it is marked YA, I sometimes felt the main character could be have been 13 and it could have been middle grade. Nevertheless, if you’re looking for something to fulfill your time before sarah’s book :)))

      EEEE! Now I’m even MORE excited for THE FALSE PRINCE! I can never get enough of high fantasy 🙂

      I won’t lie… I panicked a bit when TeensReadToo.com disappeared, but it ended up being a fun hunt to put together a list of books coming out in April that I’m particularly excited about 🙂

      And Storybound sounds like another whimsical/fantastic MG read – can’t wait!

    Wow, so many great books out this month! I think I’m most excited for Black Heart! Hadn’t heard of THE FALSE PRINCE but I just read the blurb on goodreads, and omg, must get it!

      RIGHT? I actually picked up a copy of THE FALSE PRINCE – now it’s sitting in my TBR pile at home, calling to me :p

    You forgot REMARKABLE by Lizzie K. Foley! It’s a middle grade coming out from Dial/Penguin on April 12th. I got an ARC of it in January, and it’s one of the funniest and best books I’ve read… ever! I am SUPER PUMPED for everyone else to get ahold of this one!!!

    As for the books you’ve mentioned, I’ve heard such amazing things about THE FALSE PRINCE!! I can’t wait to read! 🙂

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jul 11 2012 at 11:17 am #

      Ooooh, I actually haven’t heard of REMARKABLE! I’ll definitely have to go check it out – thanks for bringing it to my attention! 😀

    There are tons of good books coming out in April, but my most excited one is Purity by Jackson Pearce! I LOVE her books, and pumped that this one is a contemporary novel.

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jul 11 2012 at 11:18 am #

      I can’t believe I forgot about PURITY and left it out! Shoot! It has such a pretty cover, too!
