[A]pril TBR

Happy first day of April  and Happy Easter to those that celebrate.

Today is also the first day of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I’m not sure what year this is for me, but I know I’ve participated in some form or fashion over the last 6 years; be it here or my creative writing blog, or my personal blog.

Anyway, I’m at it again this year. Right here and my creative writing blog, The Ink Slinger (although I haven’t slung much ink). And, without further adieu let’s jump into today’s post.

Some might call this cheating, but umm, I say it falls within the parameters of the challenge.

The first letter of the English alphabet is:

A

. . . and April begins with an A, so enough said.

1. Macbeth by Jo Nesbo is the first of two eARCs on my April TBR. I received this from the publisher and Netgalley. It’s a retelling of Shakespeare’s Macbeth which is done in conjunction with Hogarth Shakespeare.

2. Everything Here is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee is the second eARC. It was the first ARC I requested and received from Netgalley. I started reading it in January, then put it down because another shiny new book came along and I did a buddy read.

3. 1984 by George Orwell is a book I’ve been planning to read for years. I’m sure it was on a high school and/or college reading list and well. . . Yep, didn’t happen. In an effort to catch up on all those classics I didn’t read when I was supposed to have them

4. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez is another book that’s been on my TBR for a bit and by hook or by crook I’m going to read it this month. I get the impression from those that have read it – it’s either I loved it or I hated it.

5. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline hit my radar last year when I saw a bunch of people reading it. I don’t usually buy into the hype, but when I heard Stephen Spielberg was making it into a movie I had to read it. Well it’s nearly a year later and the movie is out and I still haven’t read it. But I will.

    • Thanks! I’ll need it. I’m already behind. One year I tried reading a novella a day, but that didn’t work out. So I know there us no way I can do a novel a day. Maybe next year I’ll try AtoZ short stories.
