I’m going to be honest-I struggled with the April 2021 new book releases post this month! There are not a ton of books calling to me in April, but I feel like that is 100% a me problem.
And to be clear, I would probably read every book on this list at some point-just not right now. After my ACOTAR binge, I am feeling a reading slump coming on, but I also feel the pull of the books I neglected to get to in March.
Anyway, I hope you find something interesting on this list of April 2021 new book releases!
