April 2021 New Book Releases

Rounding up April 2021 New Book Releases and it’s a GOOD month!

April is a weird month with one foot in spring and the other still wearing a snow boot…it means even though I’m ready to take my reading outside I’m gonna need like 3 extra layers to be cozy. Or just move back to Vegas lol. I just want to read all of these books with the sun & fresh air as partners!

This month I’m personally super excited for Jeff VanderMeer’s new book, Hummingbird Salamander. I LOVED Annihilation and can’t wait to see what he’s done with this newest sci-fi thriller.

&& if you don’t feel like waiting for these April 2021 New Book Releases, be sure to check out the February and March releases.
