Book Bucket List · Monthly TBR

Monthly TBR – April 2018

It’s almost April, and I have my list of books ready to roll! Without further ado, here is my April 2018 TBR list:

April 2018 Poll Winner!103408

1) Thinking in Pictures by Temple Grandin: This book was voted for My Book Bucket List – April 2018 Book a few weeks ago. It was recommended by a friend, and I can’t wait to start! 

NetGalley:

2) The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw: I received this one from NetGalley. To be honest, I absolutely love the cover, and that was what caught my attention. Also, young adult fantasy is one of my favorite genres!

3) Every Note Played by Lisa Genova: I loved reading Still Alice and can’t wait to start to this one! Still Alice brought out so much emotion, and I’m sure Every Note Played will, as well.

4) Bob by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead: A tale of magic and friendship? Sounds like a sweet and happy read to me!

My Own Choosing:

5) Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty: Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to finish this one last month, so I’m planning to finish it this month. After finishing, I also plan on watching the TV series. So excited!

6) The True Story of Hansel and Gretel by Louise Murphy: For the in-person book club I’m part of, we decided to read this book. Set during the Nazi occupation of Poland, I can tell this one is going to be pretty intense.

7) The Secret Adversary (Tommy and Tuppence #1) by Agatha Christie: This will be my first Agatha Christie book. I’ve such great things about this well-known author and have been wanting to give her works a try. So this readathon is very timely! Thank you, James!

8) Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple #1) by Agatha Christie: For the readathon, I wanted to try reading two of the four books that have been chosen. Since Murder at the Vicarage is a first in a series, much like The Secret Adversary, I thought this one would be a good one to read, too.

Ongoing Reading:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and A Clash of Kings: These two books, which are both part of my all-time favorite series, are ongoing reads for me and are both re-reads. For Harry Potter, I am following a podcast, Harry Potter and the Sacred Text, as they read and discuss chapter by chapter. A Clash of Kings, I am also doing something similar, where I read and listen to a discussion of what I read; each episode of the Davos’ Fingers podcast focuses on four to five chapters of the book. This method helps me to dive even deeper into each text, and I absolutely love it!


Thank you for reading!

Here’s to another great month of reading!

    1. (Sorry, my phone slipped and I accidentally hit send! 🤦🏻‍♀️) As I was about to say, Temple Grandin is so fascinating! I learned about her in my agriculture classed in college, and the way her mind thinks and what she has done for the humane efforts of animals blows me away!
