It’s the last Wednesday of the month, so it’s time for us to take a look at the books releasing next month. What books are we looking forward to? Any exciting releases? Keep on reading to see what our most anticipated April releases are!
Heartbreak Symphony – Laekan Zea Kemp (April 5th)
I love that this story focuses on music! It is also about first love and about grief but for me the main selling point is the setting; the prestigious Acadia School of Music.
Love from Scratch – Kaitlyn Hill (April 5th)
A bit of an enemies-to-lovers, or better yet a rivals-to-lovers who both want an internship at a food channel. Sounds like a lot of fun to me! Add a viral video and a ton of amazing food descriptions and I am hooked.
Belle Morte – Bella Higgin (April 5th)
Vampires, a lost sister, and enemies-to-lovers. What more can a reader want? The reviews are okay, not amazing but I would still like to try it for myself. I’ve seen some reviewers talk about the wonderful characters and that is definitely something that draws me in.
Nothing Burns as Bright as You – Ashley Woodfolk (April 5th)
This book is set over the course of just one day, use an interesting trope! It’s a queer friends-to-lovers and it’s written in verse. I can’t wait to read this one and I think it will be even better as an audiobook.
Very Bad People – Kit Frick (April 5th)
A dark academia YA thriller, you just know I’m interested! It has a secret society and the setting is the boarding school our MC’s dead mother attended as well. I can already smell a good story coming!
The Matchbreaker Summer – Anne Rains (April 5th)
Our main character isn’t happy about her mother’s new relationship and that the camp her parents used to run together will be closing. So she starts working together with someone the opposite of her to break up her mother’s relationship. We know that this is going to backfire and probably have her end up in love. The Matchbreaker Summer definitely sounds like a book for me.
Hotel Magnifique – Emily J. Taylor (April 5th)
This magical hotel sounds very interesting (and dangerous) and the story definitely reminds me of Caraval. Sisters who join the hotel as part of the staff and who have to fight for their freedom.
She Gets the Girl – Rachael Lippincott & Alyson Derrick (April 5th)
I only need to read two things to know I wanted to read She Gets the Girl: She’s All That meets What if It’s Us and a hate to love romance. Both sound good to me!
Out of His League – Caroline Richardson (April 5th)
A one night stand that can turn into more is definitely an interesting one. Our main character Gretchen meets her favorite baseball player at the airport during one of his worst days. She never expects to sleep with him that night or having to decide if she can fit in his world. That definitely sounds interesting!
To Marry and Meddle – Martha Waters (April 5th)
The last thing our main character wants is to end up with the owner of her father’s favorite gambling house. She doesn’t have many choices though, because of her father’s debt. I have a feeling when they get to know each other things could definitely take a different turn.
Dead Girls Can’t Tell Secrets – Chelsea Ichaso (April 5th)
That title peaked my interested right away! And seeing that this has an unreliable narrator makes me very happy. There aren’t nearly enough books with unreliable narrators and I can’t wait to find out if this one is well done.
Portrait of a Thief – Grace D. Li (April 5th)
I’ve talked about this one a couple times already! And I do have an eARC haha. Hopefully I can read it very soon. It is for fans of Ocean’s Eleven, one of my all-time favorite movies and I think this cultural heist will be very interesting.
This May End Badly – Samantha Markum (April 12th)
There are a lot of books with fake dating this year and I’m definitely loving this. This May End Badly has two rival schools merging together. I have a feeling not all people will be happy with this.
You Should Have Seen This Coming – Shani Michelle (April 12th)
This thriller sounds like a ton of fun! One character sees the past while the other sees the future and they need to stop a kidnapping. Count me in! I like a paranormal element when it’s well done and this one sounds great.
Blaine for the Win – Robbie Couch (April 12th)
Our main character gets dumped on his first year anniversary, because his boyfriend doesn’t think he’s serious enough. To prove him wrong and win him back he decides to run for senior student council. Even though this isn’t really him. I read The Sky Blues by this author last year and enjoyed it, so I’m looking for to Blaine for the Win.
Gone Dark – Amanda Panitch (April 12th)
A survival cult and a mass power failure. This one sounds so so good! Early reviews sound all over the place but I see some things I personally like a lot. Can’t wait to find out were I fall on the review spectrum.
No Rings Attached – Rachel Lacey (April 12th)
I still need to read the first book in this series, but No Rings Attached sounds just as amazing. One of the main characters is a bookseller and there’s fake dating involved. Need I say more?!?
The Romantic Agenda – Claire Kann (April 12th)
Being in love with your best friend can be a bit messy and The Romantic Agenda sounds like it’s going to be a bit messy. But look at this stunning cover! I have a feeling this will be a perfect summer read.
Sofi and the Bone Song – Adrienne Tooley (April 19th)
I love fantasies where music is used for magic. This is a standalone with some secrets and a f|f romance. I really like the sound of the synopsis and think this could be a wonderful story.
The Drowning Summer – Christine Lynn Herman (April 19th)
This is a sapphic murder mystery retelling of the great gatsby, do you need to hear anything else? Because that was all I needed to add it to my list haha.
Go Hex Yourself – Jessica Clare (April 19th)
Just look at this stunning cover! I love everything about it. And the title just makes me laugh. A magical romantic comedy. I can live with that. Our main character applies to become the familiar of an actual witch and things get interesting when her handsome nephew comes in to the picture.
Part of Your World – Abby Jimenez (April 19th)
Part of Your World is a modern fairytale and makes me think of The Little Mermaid. When two people from different “worlds” fall in love things will definitely get interesting. Can they make it work?
Love, Hait & Clickbait – Liz Bowery (April 19th)
If I’m honest I knew I wanted to read this book after reading the title and seeing the cover. Add the fact that Love, Hate & Clickbait has fake dating and I was sold.
The No Show – Beth O’Leary (April 26th)
Three women are all in love with the same man and all get stood up on Valentine’s Day. They aren’t aware of the others, so I have a feeling this is going to be an interesting one. I have a feeling this one is going to be messy.
So those are the books we’re looking forward to releasing next month! Are you looking forward to these? Did we miss any releases you think we should know about? Let us know in the comments! We’d love to hear from you!
