Most Wanted: April 2015

Posted April 12, 2015 by Debby in Uncategorized

I’m a bit late with my April new releases post, but I just really needed a break on the blog for a bit. NONETHELESS, here are some of the AMAZING books that caught my eye that are coming out this month (or came out earlier this week) and THERE ARE SO MANY OF THEM, SERIOUSLY PUBLISHERS, WHY IS EVERYTHING COMING OUT IN APRIL? Anyway. Here we go.

April 7th

Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda The Phantom of Menace The Royal We

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli: Hands down my favorite book of the year so far. This is fluffy, bantery, adorable, diverse, and IMPORTANT, and just just just go buy this now.

William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace by Ian Doescher: I just adore this series. I’m reading this at the moment and I already love how Doescher is conquering the Jar Jar problem ♥

The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan: Dude, it’s basically Will & Kate fanfiction. I neeeeeed. But also I need some friends to read and review it first lol.

April 14th

Dream a Little Dream All the Rage

Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier: I’ve read this and it was soooo cool! Lucid shared dreaming! WHEEE. I can’t wait for my pre-order to get here so I can huggggg it.

All the Rage by Courtney Summers: I have heard SO MANY GOOD THINGS about this one, and I’ll be reading it soon myself because I’m on the blog tour. I think it’ll be a tough one, very emotional, but I bet it’s amazing.

Aimee and the Heartthrob The Prom Goer's Interstellar Excursion

Aimee and the Heartthrob by Ophelia London: I just read another book from this author and I really liked it! So this one, with a celebrity romance and a BRITISH love interest who happens to be her brother’s best friend? Umm. Please be good.

The Prom Goer’s Interstellar Excursion by Chris McCoy: Umm, this just sounds HILARIOUS. Dude’s prom date gets abducted by aliens, so “he catches a ride into outer space with a band of extraterrestrial musicians to bring her back.” The cover is also the cutest thing.

April 28th

Lying Out Loud An Ember in the Ashes Magonia

Lying Out Loud by Kody Keplinger: DUHHHH IT’S KODY KEPLINGER. I’ve already read and loved this and my review should be up soon. But yeah. It’s not my favorite Keplinger, but it is really cute.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir: This book has been getting an INSANE AMOUNT OF BUZZ, so my expectations are a bit… high. But yeah. I should be reading this next and I AM EXCITE.

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley: I mean, the Neil Gaiman blurb on the cover immediately caught my attention, and then THAT COVER, but the few early reactions I’ve seen have been extremely positive so far. I’M EXCITED.

Black Iris The Girl at Midnight Rook

Black Iris by Leah Raeder: I did really like Unteachable in spite of the mildly creepy student-teacher aspect… but MAN Raeder knows how to bring the swoons and I want some more. Also LGBT NA! YES PLEASE.

The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey: SUCH HYPE FOR THIS ONE. Come to me, pretty purpleyness.

Rook by Sharon Cameron: Scholastic, please work on promoting your titles better. I’ve heard almost nothing about this but I am SO INTRIGUED by the premise and THAT COVER.

Which titles are you most looking forward to this month?

    The Royal We: Read it and it’s good. It has some issues, but I really did love it overall. Especially Freddie-he needs his own book.

    All the Rage: I am a Summers virgin, but because of all the hype this one’s getting I checked out some of her work at the library today.

    The Prom Goer’s Interstellar Excursion: In a way the premises sort of reminds me of Hitchhiker’s guide to the Galaxy. Except I’m assuming that the Earth hasn’t been ordered to be destroyed by mice.

    Rook: I am intrigued by this one too, but I really haven’t heard much about it. Other than that it’s a Scarlet Pimpernel retelling?

    • Oh man, I am all for it if The Prom Goer’s Interstellar Excursion is like a YA Hitchhiker’s Guide. I really need there to be some reviews on this one because it sounds so cool 🙂
