April TBR!

Hello people! How are you? And how are your reading going? I hope that you and your family are safe, and that all things considered, you aren’t taking it too hard! Today I am here with this TBR, and I am quite excited because it was just so hard to do it this month!

On one hand, I wanted to do a TBR for April. I don’t always do them, just as the fancy strikes, but I was in the right mood to do a TBR, so that was good right?? Wrong! Because it seems like I couldn’t decide which books put in this! Every time I tried to write it down I kept adding title after title. Choose which one to keep and which one let go was impossible. And I have tried so many times!!! So, I was ready to let it all go, and do without the TBR, as I have done so many times before when… when the miracle happened and now I can present to you all my list of future reading! I really don’t know what changed or why something is changed, but the last time was the right one and now I have managed it! Yay!

So… this first part was quite easy, because Night Watch and Under Ordshaw are my current reading, so not hard at all! And then we have Swarm & Steel because I am using the free trial month on Scribd, and so, even if I was thinking about dedicating April to read some of the books that I currently own, I had to change my mind and try something new. I hope to check out a couple of titles from my Fantasy List, because I am not doing so great with it, and I don’t own all those books, so this is a great opportunity to try out Scribd and check out some reading, too!

Those three are books that I received in exchange for an honest review, and I am quite curious about all three of them! The Collapsing Empire would be my first John Scalzi book and I am dying out of sheer curiosity! Hostile Takeover seems to continue my trend in reading for this period, and it seems promising, and I, Exile seems quite an interesting book!

Those three are physical books. I have to try and read more of them, especially now that I have more time to read comfortably at home. Because yes, I am working outside, but I have way shorter days at work, and this is quite wonderful for my reading! The Wheel of Osheim is the last volume in this trilogy, and I really hope to finish it! Under Heaven is a book I bought in Italian just for chance, I saw it in a second-hand bookshop and I decided to try it out. It was some time ago, and I haven’t read it yet, but in the meantime, I discovered that the author is well known around and I have read some great reviews for his books so… time to try it out, right?? And, this year I would try to take part in the Bingo on f/Reddit and I am so excited about it!!!! And this would be a book for it! I’ll see if I can use some of my other reading, too, but the bingo was the push I was waiting to read this one! La meravigliosa vita dei filosofi is a book written in Italian and I haven’t found any English edition. This was a gift from my boyfriend, and it is a really cute book, with drawings in it, about the life of famous philosophers. And this is my choice for the non-fiction book. It is the cutest book ever, and I will show it to you on here or on twitter, I promise!


I don’t know if I would use this one for the Bingo or not, but I know that I need something a little bit more… easy and fun in this list, and Her Majesty’s Necromancer would do, or at least I hope so! And, at least, I would continue a series, and that’s always a good thing!

And that’s it for today! Have you read these books? And what are you planning to read in April? Let me know!!!

Happy reading!

    I really enjoyed The Collapsing Empire! I just throw all the books I want to read in a particular month on my TBR, and then it’s more like a “menu.” I know I won’t get to all of them, but at least I have a goal. Good luck this month!

    Being a huge fan of Scalzi’s work I can only recommend them – any of them: the trilogy starting with The Collapsing Empire is a fun one, and having just finished the third and final book I can tell you it was a good series. Looking forward to your comments on this one! 🙂
