April Instagram Book Challenge #1

So this month I have chosen to join the majority, it seems, and participate in a bookstagram challenge. Gives me something a little bit fun to do 🙂

The first day of the challenge was to take a photo of the books that are on your April TBR list. So I thought, I would write a blog about them too.


Here is the photo that I took for day one on my instagram (@_booksarelove) if anyone is interested..

The first book on my TBR list is The Next Always by Nora Roberts which is the first book of The Inn at Bonsboro trilogy:

The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, changing hands, even rumoured hauntings. now it’s getting a major facelift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. Beckett is the architect of the family, and his social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there is another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s wanted to kiss since he was fifteen.

After losing her husband and returning to her home town, Clare Brewster soon settles into her life as the mother of three young sons while running the town’s book store. but Clare is drawn across the street by Beckett’s transformation of the old inn, wanting to take a closer look…at the building and the man behind it. The stolen moments are the beginning of something new – and open the door to the extraordinary adventure that comes next.

The second on by April TBR is Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven. It is the first book in the Starcrossed series. This one I picked up randomly in my local library and I liked the look and the sound of it.

When Cassie Taylor met Ethan Holt at acting school, sparks flew. She was the good girl actress. He was the bad boy about campus. But one fated casting choice for Romeo and Juliet changed it all. Like the characters they were playing, Cassie and Ethan’s romance seemed destined. Until he broke her heart and betrayed her trust. Now the A-list heartthrob is back in her life and turning her world around. One touch at a time.

Cast as romantic leads once again, they’re forced to confront raw memories of the heartbreaking lows and pulse-pounding highs of their secret college affair. But they’ll also discover that people who rub each other the wrong way often make the best sparks

The third book on my TBR for the month is One Breath Away by Heather Gudenkauf.

In her most emotionally charged novel to date, New York Timesbestselling author Heather Gudenkauf explores the unspoken events that shape a community, the ties between parents and their children and how the fragile normalcy of our everyday life is so easily shattered.

In the midst of a sudden spring snowstorm, an unknown man armed with a gun walks into an elementary school classroom. Outside the school, the town of Broken Branch watches and waits.

Officer Meg Barrett holds the responsibility for the town’s children in her hands. Will Thwaite, reluctantly entrusted with the care of his two grandchildren by the daughter who left home years earlier, stands by helplessly and wonders if he has failed his child again. Trapped in her classroom, Evelyn Oliver watches for an opportunity to rescue the children in her care. And thirteen-year-old Augie Baker, already struggling with the aftermath of a terrible accident that has brought her to Broken Branch, will risk her own safety to protect her little brother.

As tension mounts with each passing minute, the hidden fears and grudges of the small town are revealed as the people of Broken Branch race to uncover the identity of the stranger who holds their children hostage.

The fourth and final book in my TBR list for the month is a book by my favourite author – Firestarter by Stephen King

First, a man and a woman are subjects of a top-secret government experiment designed to produce extraordinary psychic powers.

Then, they are married and have a child. A daughter.

Early on the daughter shows signs of a wild and horrifying force growing within her. Desperately, her parents try to train her to keep that force in check, to “act normal.”

Now the government wants its brainchild back – for its own insane ends.

I am looking forward to getting through these ones – hopefully I can read them all in a month 🙂

What books are on your TBR list this month??
