A new month, a new monthly TBR! Since I have no classes for almost the whole month of April, I will try to read as much books from my shelves as possible, and some books to review on my blog!
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
I already mentioned this book in my March Book Haul #3, so hop to that post to read more about it!
The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle
“Mr Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!”
The terrible spectacle of the beast, the fog of the moor, the discovery of a body: this classic horror story pits detective against dog, rationalism against the supernatural, good against evil. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on the wild Devon moorland with the footprints of a giant hound nearby, the blame is placed on a family curse. It is left to Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to solve the mystery of the legend of the phantom hound before Sir Charles’ heir comes to an equally gruesome end. The Hound of the Baskervilles gripped readers when it was first serialised and has continued to hold its place in the popular imagination.
I asked Pieter to name a number between 1 and 68 (that’s the amount of unread books on my shelves) and that’s how this book ended up on my April TBR. I’m not complaining; I’m really curious about my first Sherlock Holmes read!
Box of Hearts by Nikke Ashton
Millie is unlucky in love and when her long term relationship ends like a soap opera story line, she takes drastic action. She applies for an overseas job as home school teacher on an American family Ranch and finds herself instantly attracted to single dad, Jesse, her boss. As for Jesse, well he doesn’t need her getting in his business and constantly reminding him that he neglects his daughter.
In Jesse Connor’s eyes his life would be simple if it consisted of three things. His ranch, his cattle and his horses. But it doesn’t- for one, there’s his young daughter, Adeline, who is fighting for his love and attention because he’s the only parent she has. Then there is Millie Braithwaite-that damn beautiful English woman.
Millie & Jesse are two people who are both fighting against the inevitable, because they both know that this time their hearts could be shattered beyond repair.
Box of Hearts is the first book in the Connor Ranch series and tells the story of second chance love and the joy and sorrow it can bring.
In February I read Roman’s Having Sex Again by Nikki Ashton and I really liked it. So when I got the opportunity to read and review another book by her, I just couldn’t say no! This book will release on the 28th of April!
Hard to Love by Sandra Jones
Leaving a safe, predictable relationship and falling straight into the center of a whirlwind was never part of Emily’s Plans. From that very moment when the stranger’s hand takes her by the wrist, she is thrust into a world where she is flooded with feelings she cannot ignore.
Torn between her head and her heart, she quickly realizes that fighting her attraction to Chase Newman is an impossible task. He’s a man who always gets what he wants and with his sights set on Emily, she doesn’t stand a chance. A one-night stand will never be enough though, when she wants so much more than that.
When secrets and lies threaten to destroy the trust between them, Emily starts to question her own decisions. With doubt and suspicion plaguing her mind.
Is what they have worth fighting for? Or will the truth tear them apart?
Another book to read and review on my blog! This book will release on the 3rd of May!
Current read: Ragdoll by Daniel Cole
A body is discovered with the dismembered parts of six victims stitched together like a puppet, nicknamed by the press as the ‘ragdoll’.
Assigned to the shocking case are Detective William ‘Wolf’ Fawkes, recently reinstated to the London Met, and his former partner Detective Emily Baxter.
The ‘Ragdoll Killer’ taunts the police by releasing a list of names to the media, and the dates on which he intends to murder them.
With six people to save, can Fawkes and Baxter catch a killer when the world is watching their every move?
I just love myself a good thriller with a crazy killer. So when I saw this book in the bookshops, I just had to buy and read it! I only have 100 pages to go, so you can expect a review on it on here anytime soon!
