TBR - April 2017

And so my second ever April in the book blogging world begins!
And what a good selection of books I have for this month!

Asking for It by Louise O'Neill
This has been on my TBR for a long time and it seems like a really important read. I'm very confident that it's going to wreck me, but I'm also very excited about it.

What We Left Behind by Robin Talley
I've not heard very much about this but it sounds really really promising, I love Robin Talley's writing and there different gender symbols that are all over the cover are making me look like this: 😎.

See How They Lie by Sue Wallman
This is a random grab from the library because I'm going away for a week and need plenty of books! Seems like it'll either be really interesting or very unoriginal? I'm hoping for the former, obviously!

George by Alex Gino
This has been loosely on my TBR for a while, I keep looking at it and thinking I'll love it (trans rep, hello!) and as I just said I needed books for my holiday and there it was in the library so it's time for me to read it!

Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen
Either going to be a "girl who's problems are fixed by a boy" book, in which case I'll roll my eyes very loudly,  or it'll be a really positive book that I'll really love! Only time will tell!

What's on you TBR for April? Any of these? Have a good month of reading whatever you pick up!


  1. I really, really, REALLY want to read Asking For It so I'd love to see a review if you write one! My TBR is much smaller than yours - only 3 books - but I'm hoping I can squeeze some more in. But this month needs to be more about revision than reading!

    1. I'll almost certainly be writing one! Yeah I've wanted to read it for SO long! I'm working on the basis that I'll read a lot because I'll be rewarding myself for working hard (or procrastinating?!)...

  2. The characters in What We Left Behind by Robin Talley are engaging and their relationship is beautiful. It’s also a great book for being introduced to what genderqueer and transgender mean – for those not identifying as such and, I think, for those struggling to understand where they live on the spectrum. Plus, the writing is awesome!
