Five Books On My TBR – April 2021

Hello everyone,

It is time to take a look at some more of the books on my TBR, which I aim to read at some point in the future though it is difficult to say exactly when. There is every chance I shall read some of them in the next few weeks, but the rest could still be on my list this time next year! Sometimes there is just too much to get through…

Most of the books on this list are recent releases, and they come from a nice range of genres, so each one brings a unique area of interest.

The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna

I have heard the best things about this book and it is definitely one that I would like to get to very soon. The main character Deka sounds very unique and everything about the synopsis fills me with intrigue. I am usually very selective when it comes to fantasy, but this looks like the start of a series that I might really enjoy. The cover is gorgeous, too!

The One Hundred Years Of Lenni And Margot by Marianne Cronin

Everything about this book makes it seem emotional, but it also has the makings of an exceptionally beautiful story which I just want to discover for myself. As soon as I read the synopsis and also some reviews from my fellow bloggers I just knew it had to go on my TBR.

I am here for any book which focuses on powerful relationships between two characters in such a way, and when I pick this one up I fully expect to be swept away.

The Fear by C.L. Taylor

I have slowly been working my way through C.L. Taylor’s psychological thrillers in order of publication, and this one is next on the list. She is an author who usually guarantees a very fast-paced story and unreliable narrators, so it should definitely keep me on the edge of my seat.

From the reviews I have seen, The Fear is often regarded as her best book, so that makes me really look forward to picking it up. I have a copy from the library, so hopefully it shall not be long until I do.

The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner

This is another book that I have seen around a lot recently. It has a beautiful cover (the colours!!!) and an extremely enticing synopsis which, as a lover of historical fiction, really speaks to me and captures my attention.

I am very excited by the idea of the dual timelines, the historical murders aspect, and the feminist themes. All of these things have the potential to fill me with bookish delight, so I cannot wait to read this one.

Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers

I do like a good diverse contemporary read and this one seems to tick all the boxes. It contains what sounds like a lovely sapphic romance and a great representation of a woman in STEM, while the story of the main character Grace sounds like something I might connect very strongly with as a reader. As soon as I saw this, it went straight on the TBR!

  4. Oh, I am really curious about The Fear. Havenโ€™t heard about this author before. If she is as great as you say, Stephen, then youโ€™ve just helped me to find a new thriller author!)

    1. I’m excited to read The Fear! She is a good author if you like fast paced plots and unreliable narrators. The last two books I read by her (The Missing and The Escape) were both suspenseful thrillers. Thank you for the comment, Nastassja!
