‘Waiting on’ Wednesday: April ’20 Releases

‘Waiting on’ Wednesday (WoW) is a book blog meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s really easy to participate: all you have to do is feature upcoming books you’re excited about–it doesn’t necessarily have to release the next month. But for my own sanity, I try to feature books month-by-month.

I’m going to cheat a little bit an include this end of March release (but it literally came out yesterday!) because I am Imagine Mejust excited but also scared because the end is actually here.

The Shatter Me series has been such a wild ride. Just when you thought it was over, the author announced three more books. I know not everyone has been happy with the way Restore Me and Defy Me have been, but for me, this series has turned into like a crazy binge read with some (perhaps) not-so realistic parts. But after the giant revelations in the last book, I’m eager to see how Mafi will finally end this series (and I’m crossing my fingers it’ll all be worth it!).



The rest of these books are actually April releases.

I most recently added The Best Laid Plans on my TBR. I feel like it’s a bridge between YA and NA in terms of its content, and I’m interested to see how the author will explore these firsts with her main character. It also sounds like a childhood-friends-to-lovers trope and I’m pretty much here for that, YES PLEASE.

I forgot I added What I Like About You on my TBR, so I wanna post the synopsis because it seriously sounds so good:

“There are a million things that Halle Levitt likes about her online best friend, Nash.

He’s an incredibly talented graphic novelist. He loves books almost as much as she does. And she never has to deal with the awkwardness of seeing him in real life. They can talk about anything…

Except who she really is.

Because online, Halle isn’t Halle—she’s Kels, the enigmatically cool creator of One True Pastry, a YA book blog that pairs epic custom cupcakes with covers and reviews. Kels has everything Halle doesn’t: friends, a growing platform, tons of confidence, and Nash.

That is, until Halle arrives to spend senior year in Gramps’s small town and finds herself face-to-face with real, human, not-behind-a-screen Nash. Nash, who is somehow everywhere she goes—in her classes, at the bakery, even at synagogue.

Nash who has no idea she’s actually Kels.

If Halle tells him who she is, it will ruin the non-awkward magic of their digital friendship. Not telling him though, means it can never be anything more. Because while she starts to fall for Nash as Halle…he’s in love with Kels.”

This book releases on April 7. Despite the local libraries being closed due to coronavirus, it’s already on order and I’m ready to put it on hold.

Y’all might have already heard me talk a little bit about both of the above books. I have ARCs of both of these and plan on reading them in the coming weeks. Incendiary is a fantasy novel and The Silence of Bones is a historical mystery novel set in Korea during the Joseon period. I have been hyped for this book since forever, so I can’t wait to dive into the book in a few days.

I’ve read at least three other April releases, only two of which have been posted on my blog (the other one will go up tomorrow). You can check them out:

There are so many more books coming out in April, so if there’s a book you’re excited about, let me know in comments! Like any book nerd, I’m happy to add more books to my TBR, LOL.
