Fresh on the Shelf - April 2019 Book Releases & Giveaway

Happy April, Cupcakes!

Hope everyone had a FABULOUS March! I'm very excited for April, mostly for the warm weather and the release of Cassandra Clare's latest with Wesley Chu (sooooooooooooo excited!)

March was an absolute blast, with plenty of binge reading and with my visit to Toronto Comic Con 2019 (click here to see photos and my experience recap.) What was everyone up to during March? Any exciting reads or events? Let me know!

As for April in terms of books, there's fewer YA releases, but there's still quite a few I'm eager to check out and read. As I mentioned earlier, I'm very excited for RED SCROLLS OF MAGIC, but I'm also anticipating the arrival of MERA, DEFY ME, and DEFY THE STARS. Additionally, if you haven't read my review on WICKED SAINTS yet, please be sure to do so by clicking right over here. I loved that book and can't wait for others to check it out, as well!

Happy Reading!📚

  4. Ah, so many books I want to read coming out this month! As for a Spring time read...hmm...I don't know that I really have one. Harry Potter is good all the time. Something contemporary and/or funny is always good too!
