The Bookish Jinni’s March Book Haul and April TBR – A Summer Reading Bonanza

Even though I only read a few books this March, I’m happy to say that I splurged my allowance on books as preparation for the dog days ahead. Let’s take a trip on my March Book Haul which will also be my April TBR! (If I can control myself haha)

Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Mental Health

18075234I bet this book doesn’t need any introductions. This winner of the National Book Award is a “heartfelt tour de force” according to the blurb. Well, I’m a sucker for a good emotional read and have experienced depression before so I’m interested whether it really delivers an accurate portrayal of mental illness.

 

 

 

 

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Genre: Fantasy

9361589This book need not be introduced as well! It’s practically worshipped all over Bookstagram and by fantasy fans for its atmospheric writing and beautiful world building. I’m so excited to see what the hype is all about!

 

 

 

 

 

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

9780008108427This YA Fantasy book gained a lot of rave reviews when it first released and this has been on my radar ever since. I think the idea of a Roman-esque world is sooo enticing. Also, that cover is so good for picture-taking!

 

 

 

 

 

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

Genre: Literary Fiction

17333223I think Donna Tartt is fast becoming a favorite author of mine and I was so lucky to get this large print edition on Thriftbooks! Definitely looking forward to being blown away by this book.

 

 

 

 

 

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby

Genre: Young Adult, Magic Realism

18806240E. Lockhart, one of my favorite authors, said this was “magic realism at it’s most magical,” so being a proper fan, I did my best to get a copy of this and try to see the magic! That cover is giving me a lot of farm-y vibes!

 

 

 

 

 

The Hunger Angel by Herta Müller, translated by Philip Boehm

Genre: Historical Fiction

13165142I saw this little beauty in Thriftbooks by chance and I was so intrigued by the synopsis and the cover. So I did a little research and found out that this was a novel by a Nobel Prize awardee so I just had to buy it. I’m looking forward to be blown away by this work of art.

 

 

 

 

Carnivalesque by Neil Jordan (E-Advanced Reader’s Copy)

Genre: Magic Realism

31451203This books is gorgeous inside and out. I was lucky enough to get an e-arc via Netgalley and I admit I have begun reading the first few chapters, and I can definitely say that this will be high-rater for me. It has echoes of Neil Gaiman but with a certain melancholy atmosphere that’s coupled with gorgeous prose. MUST BUY IMMEDIATELY.

 

 

 

 

 

More book lists coming up! Stay tuned 🙂
