April Preorders!

I’m a little late posting this (what else is new…), but there are still plenty of days left in April and plenty of books coming out! I preordered quite a few books in April, so I’ve got a lot of good stuff to look forward to this month.

Here are my April picks!

I’m a sucker for books prominently featuring mental health struggles, and this anthology has some of my favorites in it! This one was actually a last-second preorder because I didn’t know about it until the day before it released!

For Every One by Jason Reynolds

Jason Reynolds is a wonderful poet, and I couldn’t pass this book up. The book itself is a beautiful object, and the heart behind it is powerful.

Lizzie by Dawn Ius

Format: Kindle

I heard good things about this one! It’s a Lizzie Borden retelling with sapphic girls and a lot of suspense, which sounds perfect for me.

Ghost Boys by Jewell Parker Rhodes

Release date: 4/17/18
Format: Hardcover
Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/Ghost-Boys-Jewell-Parker-Rhodes/dp/0316262285/

This is historical fiction revolving around a Black boy who was killed by a police officer who meets Emmett Till as a ghost, and I was immediately intrigued. This middle grade novel sounds stunning and important, and I can’t wait to read it.

White Rabbit by Caleb Roehrig

I love a good murder mystery, and murder mysteries with queer characters are extremely appealing to me. I’ve heard a lot of people say things about this one, and I’m super excited about it!

Leah On The Offbeat by Becky Albertalli

Last but CERTAINLY not least, Becky Albertalli’s newest release is one of my most anticipated books of April (and of 2018, for that matter). Are you excited for Leah? I’m excited for Leah.
