Waiting on Wednesday [13]: April Releases

Welcome to this month’s list of new releases that I’m dying to read.

Letters to the Lost
by Brigid Kemmerer

Publication Date: April 4th, 2017

I’ve been wanting to read this since I’ve since it floated around the blogosphere. It’s bound to break me but I’m so ready. It’s certainly been getting some great reviews so far, so let’s hope the hype machine is on point with this one.



Alex, Approximately
by Jenn Bennett

Publication Date: April 4th, 2017

Jenn Bennett has written a number of books before The Night Owls (a.k.a The Anatomical Shape of A Heart). But she’s recently broken the YA center stage with her contemporary release. I love, love The Night Owls. So, of course I needed to pick up a copy of this one. Lucky for me, Β it was out early.



Waking Gods
by Sylvain Neuvel

Publication Date: April 4th, 2017

Sleeping Giants was one of my favorite Science Fiction reads of all time. And it’s because for once, I never found it to be dry nor daunting. It was such a smooth read that I never once felt like it was Sci-Fi at all. I saw this on Net Galley but I knew I had to read it in its physical form. Dying to get started.



The Chosen
by J.R. Ward

Publication Date: April 4th, 2017

This is the 15th installment for The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I’ve looked forward to reading Xcor & Layla’s story since they’ve first been introduced. I know many have asked for her to end this, but I’m not one of those begging for its death. Lol. I love this series, no matter what. If I had a choice, I wish this could be as long as JD Robb’s In Death series. Lol.


Mister Moneybags
by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Publication Date: April 10th, 2017

I’ve recently become a fan of this writing duo. This quasi-series, in particular,Β is one of the best ones. I love the romances in each book. And I find that there is always some distinction to their characters. These books are such fun! And phew, are they ever steamy!



At Attention
by Annabeth Albert

Publication Date: April 10th, 2017

I can never resist a good M/M romance. I just found this series recently, actually and I haven’t read the first book. But I’m a huge fan of men in military! I’m also quite fond of Ms. Albert’s work so looking forward to reading this one.



So that’s all the books I’m looking forward to reading this month.
What’s on your list?

  • I’m super interested in Letters to the Lost. I sounds like something I would love, since I am a fan of the deeper, more emotional books. Hope you get to read all of these this month πŸ™‚

  • I just recently got into the new BDB books and listened to the first one. I enjoyed it. Bought the second one as well. Who knows when I will get to it. I know next to nothing about the rest of these books. I hope you enjoy them!

  • I’ve heard nothing but good things about Sylvain Neuvel but most of them were from hardcore sci-fi fans. It’s a relief to hear that someone who’s not that big on the genre still loved the Sleeping Giants because I find SF hit or miss!

  • I can’t wait to read Alex Approximately! I loved Night Owls so much too Joy, it still remains one of my favourite reads. Unfortunately Letters To The Lost irritated me, I still enjoyed it but the main character was a horrible entitled girl that pissed me off from the first page. Really interested to see what you make of it <3

    I just recently finished At Attention and I loved it, so I hope you do too!! I have an ARC of Alex, Approximately so hopefully I can get to it soon.

    Yummy with Mr. Moneybags! To be honest with you, I think JR Ward has wanted to end the series because it’s hard to top excellence. I feel like every time she comes out with something different, it doesn’t have the same success, and she gets reeled back into the career blockbusters. Like you, I’m a fan, and she has her own shelf on the bookcase, and I still grab her books, but I’m a little behind. Hugs…and thanks for sharing some fantastic new finds!

  • Yay for so many stunning picks πŸ˜€ I hope you will end up loving all of them Joy. <3 Hugs. I am pretty curious about that first book πŸ˜€ Heard that so many loves it. Happy reading sweetie. <3

  • ChristinaBookAddict

    Letters to the Lost was so good. Definitely one of my favorite books of the year and I can’t wait to read Alex, Approximately!

  • Big yes to Letters to the Lost and Mister Moneybags!

  • There are so many books that I want to squeeze into this month! I need more time! I need to read Waking Gods and Bang by Barry Lyga looks promising.

  • Yes to all of these except the JR Ward one. Only because I’m so behind on the BDB series and I need to catch up.

  • I didn’t know Alex, Approximately came out. Wonder if my library will have it. I know a ton of people have been LOVING this, so I am super curious

  • Greg Hill

    I was gonna skip Waking Gods because I was a bit underwhelmed by the first one, but I don’t know… this one has me intrigued now. and Alex, Approximately looks fun.

  • I have enjoyed Vi Keeland’s books in the past…may have to add that one to my list. Now I’m super curious about Letters to the Lost. And I have Alex, Approximately on my wishlist. Stop giving me book ideas!!! Lol. My TBR is outta control.

  • I’m looking forward to Alex, Approximately and Letters to the Lost. I’m like itching to read those books. I’ve heard nothing but good things on them. Great list though. I need to add some of these to my wish list.

  • Oooo, some good looking titles there! My tbr books are weeping πŸ˜‰

  • Karen

    I’ve read Alex, Approximately and At Attention (both good!). Letters to the Lost is the one I’ve had my eye on.

    For What It’s Worth

  • I’m dying to read Alex Approximately and am half way through Letters to the Lost. It’s so good, I’m really loving it! I hope you’ll love all of those titles above πŸ™‚

  • sarabara081 @ Forever 17 Books

    I’m really excited for Alex, Approximately! I have a copy on its way and I look forward to reading it this month. I’ve never read anything by J.R. Ward! O.O I can’t resist a good M/M romance either. At Attention looks like something I might like too.

  • I just finished Letters to the Lost a few days ago and it was AMAZING!! I’m sure you’ll love it when you get a chance to read it πŸ™‚ Walking Gods looks really good too, I’ll have to check that one out.
    Aneta @ Angelic Book Reviews

  • I need to try a book by Ward!

  • Yes to the first two! You definitely need to read them ASAP!
    At Attention sounds really good too. I haven’t really ventured into full-blown M/M yet, but I’m interested.
    I hope you enjoy these books, Joy!

  • I hope you get them all πŸ˜€

  • I just recently read a wonderful review for Letters to the Lost so I’m interested in that one. JR Ward’s for sure, too. I’m looking forward to A Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda, Any Day Now by Robyn Carr, and The Thing About Love by Julie James. Hopefully we both love our April books, Joy! πŸ™‚
