Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
Today marks the beginning of my fourth week of social distancing, which is absolutely wild. To be completely honest with you, it really doesn’t feel like I’ve been staying in my house for three straight weeks (minus one day when I went to do a quick Costco run). As I shared in my previous post, I have not been reading too much during this time, as I have been focusing on doing quick things that can keep me busy (watching movies, listening to music, watching BookTube videos, etc.). However, my main goal this month is to try to read four books (one each week), and I think I will be able to complete that goal. I am also starting online courses on Monday in order to finish out my school year, so at least this month I will have some educational things to do!
The first book I hope to complete this month is YOU ARE NOT ALONE by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. I started reading this book several weeks ago and then fell into a little reading slump, so I am slowly but surely getting through this one now! I am enjoying it, but I can’t seem to remember which character has which backstory, but I have yet to find out if that will truly impact my reading experience. I am excited to finally finish this one, as i have heard that others enjoyed it more than AN ANONYMOUS GIRL, the other book I have read from them.
The next book I hope to complete is LITTLE UNIVERSES by Heather Demetrios. I read the first few chapters of this one the other day and I am really enjoying it so far. I am in the mood for a sad contemporary story, and from the way this book started off, I assume this book will be perfect for my current bookish mood. Thanks to Raincoast Books for the ARC!
I then hope to read THE BEST LAID PLANS by Cameron Lund. I feel like I have had this book on several TBRs over the past few months, but since it is officially releasing in April, I feel like it makes the most sense to sit down and read it this month! I have heard very good things about this book, and can’t wait to dive in! Thanks to Penguin Teen Canada for the ARC!
From there, I hope to read KADDISH.COM by Nathan Englander. I stumbled upon this book on Libby (a fantastic Library app), and was so glad to see that it was available to borrow right away. For those of you who don’t know, I am a proud Jew, and am always looking for books based on Judaism and it’s fundamentals. This book seems really, really intriguing, and I am excited to read it on my iPad, as I haven’t read an eBook for a very long time.
The last book I plan to read this month is ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST by Ken Kesey. I am reading this book for my AP English class, and since school is finally starting up for me again next week, I assume we will take a few days to finally finish this book. I am semi-enjoying it so far. I enjoyed the second part of the book much more than the first part, so I hope that trend continues as I complete the book.
Those are all of the books I hope to read and enjoy this month! Have you read any of these books? What are you planning on reading this month (comment the link to your April TBRs so I can read them!)?
Good Night Book Owls!

Kaddish.com looks great! I am looking forward to reading it and also hearing your comments.
This is a great TBR! I read You Are Not Alone last month and I loved it! The first half is a little slow, but it’s necessary to set up all the suspense and build-up for the big twists! I hope you love it!
I haven’t read any of these but I enjoyed the movie of Cuckoo’s Nest. Enjoy!
I haven’t read this book but I have enjoyed Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen work before. I’ll be watching to see what you think of them.
I haven’t read any of these. I hope you enjoy them all.
These all look great. I thought being in lock down would have me reading more but I am finding I’m reading less. Think it might be to do with having a house full of people 24/7
Enjoy reading them.
Great post and great tbr I hope you enjoy reading each book on your April tbr pile. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.
These are good picks. Loved You Are Not Alone.
Hope you have a good month.
All of these books sound super good Ima have to check them out sometime. I love reading and on my blog https://whisperingbutterfly.blogspot.com/ I do book reviews and I think you might like some of the books I have read if you wanted to check it out.
