April is going to be a typical in-between month for me. I’m neck-deep into writing my thesis, and trying to get two other papers for uni into decent shape as well. April also marks the start of birthday season (all of my friends have their birthdays right after each other in spring, which is both convenient and not). I’m extremely glad that the days are long again, and that although the weather is unpredictable and wet, I’ll at least will no longer be bound to wearing sweaters every day.
Although I love making lists, I tend to be terrible at actually sticking them. So instead of choosing books for this list, this list is more of a prediction of what I’ll probably read, if that makes sense.
Books I’ll be reading this April
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle – So this is a rather educated guess, since I’m writing my thesis on Doyle. I’m quite looking forward to finding out more about Sherlock Holmes!
Clash of Iron by Angus Watson – I read the first book in this series, Age of Iron, a while ago and really enjoyed it (see my review). I’m quite excited for this sequel, and as an added bonus I got it for review. I love it when I get sequels for review I actually read the first book of, ha. I’ve been feeling in the mood for a fantasy lately, so it seems that all stars are aligning for Clash of Iron.
Monstrous by MarcyKate Connolly – I’ve started reading this book when I received the ARC, but lost interest when I was going through my meh phase. It’s a middle grade book, which usually are quite quick reads.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling – As part of overcoming the aforementioned meh phase, I continued my reread of the Harry Potter books. This is probably around my seventeenth reread or so, and they’re still so good. The Prisoner of Azkaban used to be my favourite book because Harry finally gains a family member.
The Stand of Stephen King – Okay, this is pure conjecture, but I have this tendency to pick up very long books when I’m not supposed to. The more stress I’m under, the more those King chunksters start calling my name. The Stand might be the biggest book on my shelves right now, so if I suddenly start neglecting my blog, it’s because I fell into the trap and started reading it.
