TBR & Wrap-up

April TBR

Hello there! Yesterday it became a new month which means a new monthly TBR. As you might have noticed I am sucky at sticking to my TBR but I always like to give it a shot. This month I’m probably going to be very busy with school and other stuff so I don’t know how much I will be able to read but as always I have an ambitious TBR. 🙂

I am currently reading this book and I am loving it so far. This is the only book on this list I am sure I will finish.

Goodreads synopsis: Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has already survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. But his hopes for a quiet term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed when a maniacal mass-murderer escapes from Azkaban, pursued by the soul-sucking Dementors who guard the prison. It’s assumed that Hogwarts is the safest place for Harry to be. But is it a coincidence that he can feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney’s ghoulish predictions seriously?

Another Harry Potter book, haha. I really want to finish this series soon…

Goodreads synopsis: The summer holidays are dragging on and Harry Potter can’t wait for the start of the school year. It is his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and there are spells to be learnt and (unluckily) Potions and Divination lessons to be attended. But Harry can’t know that the atmosphere is darkening around him, and his worst enemy is preparing a fate that it seems will be inescapable …With characteristic wit, fast-paced humour and marvellous emotional depth, J.K. Rowling has proved herself yet again to be a master story-teller.

This is the second book in the Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender trilogy which I am currently rereading. I love these books so much and are very excited to reread them.

Goodreads synopsis: Alexis is the last girl you’d expect to sell her soul. She already has everything she needs–an adorable boyfriend, the perfect best friend, and a little sister who’s finally recovering after being possessed by an evil spirit, then institutionalized.
Alexis is thrilled when her sister joins a club; new friends are just what Kasey needs. It’s strange, though, to see how fast the girls in The Sunshine Club go from dorky and antisocial to gorgeous and popular. Soon Alexis learns that the girls have pledged an oath to a seemingly benevolent spirit named Aralt. Worried that Kasey’s in over her head again, Alexis and her best friend Megan decide to investigate by joining the club themselves. At first, their connection with Aralt seems harmless. Alexis trades in her pink hair and punky clothes for a mainstream look, and quickly finds herself reveling in her newfound elegance and success.
Instead of fighting off the supernatural, Alexis can hardly remember why she joined in the first place. Surely it wasn’t to destroy Aralt…why would she hurt someone who has given her so much, and asked for so little in return?

I have been wanting to read this book for awhile now and I did just borrow it from the library which means I’ll probably read it this month.

Goodreads synopsis: Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren’t anymore.
 
When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

This is a Swedish book and it’s not translated in another language. I’ve seen the movie and really liked it so I thought I’d give the book a shot.

Goodreads synopsis (in Swedish): När Signe var mindre kände hon sig fri och glad. Hon vågade ta för sig. Klassen hon gick i var levande och sprallig. Men när hon började i sexan förändrades allt. Tjejernas syn på sig själva och varandra. Det var som om världen krympte.

Nu är de 15 och Mimi och hennes nickedockor regerar. Mimi har makt och sprider sitt förakt bland klassens tjejer och killar. Signe uppfattar sig själv som en parentes. Hon är avundsjuk på Mimi men tycker inte om vad hon står för.

En dag kommer det en ny tjej, Saga, till klassen och väcker de övrigas nyfikenhet. “Det verkar vara en stark tjej”, säger samhällsläraren. Saga har ett stort självförtroende och en självklarhet som tjejer i hennes ålder oftast saknar. Saga tycker att världen är till lika mycket för henne som alla andra. Och hon vågar stå upp mot Mimi, lärarna och killarna i klassen. Hon förändrar mönstret. Men så en dag är hon borta. Hon kom och försvann.

 

That’s all the book on my April TBR. What books are you planning to read in April?
