Time sure flies and rainy spring days have finally arrived in this part of the globe. They’re making me jump between extra sleepy to determinedly productive at alarming neck-breaking speed. Thankfully, there are always books to cuddle with. Because books never betray. (Unless they end on a cliffhanger. Or kill your favourite character. While casually taking a few years to get published. Never mind, books cannot be trusted.)
Speaking of books… In February wrap-up post, I’ve mentioned how I’ve accidentally dipped into historical romance pond. Well, turns out, I didn’t exactly make out of it. Not until the end of March anyway.
Because you see, I’m the kind of weird reader species who, in addition to following moods, goes through extreme genre binge stages, (which seriously hurts all plans on catching up on releases but oh well). So, after my latest encounter with excellent fantasy (namely, Sarah J. Maas), I had to take a break. A few quick detours (read: Kay Hooper), destination historical romance happened. And it was fun, very much so! I actually branched out to different writers and even found some new comfort reads, which you can check out at the end of this post. I honestly forgot how much I love this genre. (Which means mostly that my TBR has, once again, grown exponentially. Yay.)
Books reviewed in March:
- Johnny and Jamaal by K. M. Breakey ::
- Fear the Dark by Kay Hooper :: ★★★★
- Wait for Dark by Kay Hooper :: ★★★★½
- Feversong by Karen Marie Moning :: ★★★★
Coming up in April:
April has quite a few releases I’ve been dying to get my hands on and I’m already picturing myself drooling in happiness while being permanently crushed by my TBR. But the ones I am most looking forward to – and have plans to check out as soon as possible – are: The Thing About Love by Julie James, The Chosen by J. R. Ward, The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli, Red Sister by Mark Lawrence, and Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis.
That said, April is going to be a very, very busy month for me as a university student. Therefore the only books I am reading for sure are The Thing About Love (if you think I’m counting hours until the release, you are right) as well as ACOTAR/ACOMAF release before ACOWAR (counting minutes, pretty much).
And most importantly, Books Over Coffee will be on a sleepy hiatus for the duration of April. I might schedule some reviews, since they’re already drafted, but we shall see. I will, however, keep being active on Goodreads and posting quick, short reviews on every book I read this year. On Bookstagram and Twitter as well, though way less active there.
Historical romance picks of the month:
What kind of reader are you? Do you go through stages like me or is it easy for you to switch between genres? How diligent are you at following new releases?
