I Have Lost My Way, by: Gayle Forman
I haven’t gotten a chance to read a Gayle Forman book yet in my book-loving career, so I’m hoping I can find a place for this one on my shelves. The publishers did a great job with the blurb. I’m not 100% sure what it’s about, but I feel like I know enough to want to read it. I like having that in a reading experience. The books that I go into without any expectations are the ones I end up loving the most.
Starry Eyes, by: Jenn Bennett
one piece less and less likely.
And as the two travel deeper into Northern California’s rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon’s rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?
Outdoors? Summer? Camping? Love? Yes, please! I can’t wait for summer vacation, and this is the time of year that all these summary contemporaries get published. Incorporating travel and adventures into these stories give them a bonus. I know that this book is the first of many light romances coming out in the next couple of months, but it has that little extra something that future releases may not have. I can’t wait to see how this book is received!
Ace of Shades, by: Amanda Foody
Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi's enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…
And she’ll need to play.
I’m not sure that I’ve ever read a YA gang novel, so I think that may be why I’m so excited for this one (which is weird, because I love movies with similar prefaces…). This book has so much potential since it’s street lord motif isn’t used too often. The exciting thing with this novel is that it could be dark, funny, romantic or a combination of all three. Hopefully, I can get a copy of this book in time for my family’s vacation at the end of May where we will stop for a night in Las Vegas. That would provide me with top-notch reading ambiance.
What April releases are you excited for? Let me know which ones I should keep my eye out for in the comments!
As she awaits some sunshine,
What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.
— Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay
