I cannot believe that it’s already the middle of April and that Q1 of 2022 has already happened. Getting older is truly just saying “I can’t believe time flies” over and over until you die, and I am kind of over the monotony of it all!
Beach Read is an absolute delight and I wish I could read it for the first time again. I don’t read a lot of romance, so the fact it was on my shelves is a bit surprising to me but I am so glad I own a copy of this delightfully funny and sarcastic rom-com! It feeds my soul in a way I don’t think I can articulate and quite frankly has opened my mind up to a slew of new reading opportunities.
Having absolutely adored Kit Frick’s I Killed Zoe Spanos, I’ve been anxiously waiting to read her dark academia mystery Very Bad People. The publisher granted me an eARC of the book literally 12 hours before publication, but that didn’t stop me from devouring this one in two sittings! If you like your characters morally grey and enjoy moral debate, this is a book for you!
Just be warned that the ending is evil.
Another month, another opportunity to ruin your TBRs! Welcome to my list of April 2022 Anticipated Reads (and sorry for missing March this year – would you like a ‘Here’s what you may have missed in April” post?). It was a little difficult to narrow it down to these 13 but such is the journey I embark upon to highlight new books.
Within These Wicked Walls has characters you will both love and hate (sometimes at the same time!) with their own motivations and histories, succinctly developed worldbuilding to sweep you away, and the horrors of bleeding walls to add a sense of dread and danger. I absolutely loved every minute spent reading this debut fantasy, which is an Ethiopian-inspired reimagining of Jane Eyre, and Blackwood is an author to watch!
Guess who’s back? That’s right friends, after another unplanned two month hiatus I am back and here to celebrate Reader Voracious turning four years old at the beginning of March! I can’ believe it’s already my 4th blogiversary since Reader Voracious launched here on Wordpress… it feels like just yesterday that I published my first blog post.
