April was another month of just a few books for me since I was drafting IN3 most of the time. I have a pretty nice list of books I want to read in the next couple of weeks, though, so there’s a chance I will make a small dent in my TBR!

I should add that I read ARCs of SHINE by Jeri Smith-Ready and INSURGENT by Veronica Roth earlier this year, and now they’re both out on shelves. While I didn’t have time to write reviews for them, they’re both amazing books and you should go out and buy them immediately. Here’s a little about both:

SHINE is the third and final book in the SHADE trilogy, set in a world where everyone born after a certain date can see ghosts. I just adore the worldbuilding in this series. And the characters! The writing! Guys, if you want an amazing paranormal that can make you swoon and think and laugh all on the same page, this is it.

INSURGENT is the second in the DIVERGENT trilogy, set in dystopian Chicago where teens must decide what faction they will belong to for the rest of their lives. The thing I love most about this series is how much choices matter and how there are always consequences.

Have you guys read any of the books on my list? Looking forward to any that aren’t out yet or sitting in your TBR pile?
