April 2nd Releases You Need To Read

Ah, book birthdays! Seeing the releases of books is always an exciting thing, and this April 2nd is no different! Some amazing books hit the shelves today, and you should definitely jump into them!

Please note the purchase links are affiliate links. This means I will get a small commissions (at no additional charge to you) if you purchase through my links!

1. Wicked Saints by Emily A Duncan

Wicked Saints is most definitely going down as one of my favorite books of all time. It’s incredibly immersive and the storytelling is spectacular! You can take a look at my review of the book here.

Purchase: Amazon, Book Depository

Blurb:

A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.

A prince in danger must decide who to trust.

A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings. 

Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war.

In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy.

2. The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

I previously mentioned this novel on my 19 Book Covers of 2019 I Love post, so I’ve been anxiously awaiting it’s release! I can’t wait to dive in!

Purchase: Amazon, Book Depository

Blurb:

On the edge of town a beast haunts the woods, trapped in the Gray, its bonds loosening…

Uprooted from the city, Violet Saunders doesn’t have much hope of fitting in at her new school in Four Paths, a town almost buried in the woodlands of rural New York. The fact that she’s descended from one of the town’s founders doesn’t help much, either—her new neighbours treat her with distant respect, and something very like fear. When she meets Justin, May, Isaac, and Harper, all children of founder families, and sees the otherworldly destruction they can wreak, she starts to wonder if the townsfolk are right to be afraid.

When bodies start to appear in the woods, the locals become downright hostile. Can the teenagers solve the mystery of Four Paths, and their own part in it, before another calamity strikes?

3. You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn

This book recently got on my radar, but that doesn’t mean I’m not as equally excited about this release! I can’t wait to dive in!

Purchase: Amazon, Book Depository

Blurb:

Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things. 

But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen. 

Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.

4. We Rule the Night by Claire Eliza Bartlett

I can’t wait to jump into this book! It sounds absolutely spectacular (and cmon, look at that cover!)

Purchase: Amazon, Book Depository

Blurb:

Seventeen-year-old Revna is a factory worker, manufacturing war machines for the Union of the North. When she’s caught using illegal magic, she fears being branded a traitor and imprisoned. Meanwhile, on the front lines, Linné defied her father, a Union general, and disguised herself as a boy to join the army. They’re both offered a reprieve from punishment if they use their magic in a special women’s military flight unit and undertake terrifying, deadly missions under cover of darkness. Revna and Linné can hardly stand to be in the same cockpit, but if they can’t fly together, and if they can’t find a way to fly well, the enemy’s superior firepower will destroy them–if they don’t destroy each other first.

We Rule the Night is a powerful story about sacrifice, complicated friendships, and survival despite impossible odds.
