Wooden bench and flowering plants in gardenIt’s April and time for our first Whatcha Reading of the month!

Laura: I’ve fallen back into the comfort provided by a familiar series: Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter novels. ( A | BN | K | G | AB ) I’ve got to be in the right frame of mind for them, but when I am, they hit the sweet spot.

Sneezy: I’m re-reading the webtoon North x Northwest about a cross dressing pirate. It’s been on hiatus for a long ass time, and now the second season is finally coming back at the end of April!

The artist has changed though, and I don’t know what happened. I really hope the original artist is okay, exploitation of artists in the webtoon industry is rampant.

Susan: I’m still reading No. 6 Omnibus 1! ( A | BN ) My current summary is “weaponised drama kid falls in love with airhead science kid, please someone explain why there are killer bees”

Elyse:I just started Advikra and the Hollywood Wives by Kirthana Ramisetti

Sarah: I’m reading A Sinister Revenge, ( A | BN | K ) the latest Veronica Speedwell mystery. It is so easy to re-enter the world without having to re-read the series (not that re-reading the series is a bad thing!) and this time, Stoker’s brother thinks he’s going to be murdered so there’s a house party to flush out the potential murderer.

Elyse: I loved that one!

Claudia: My library hold for The Mountain in the Sea ( A | BN | K | AB ) finally came through so I’ve started it and so far so good!

Tara: I’m reading Faith, Hope and Carnage, ( A | BN | K ) the 300-page interview between Nick Cave and Seán O’Hagan. I can only read for 20 minutes or so at a time because the ideas are so dense, but it’s achingly beautiful.

Shana: I just started reading For Her Consideration by Amy Spalding. The LA lesbian haircuts are perfectly described.

Sarah: There is no more perfect one sentence review than that, Shana. 10/10 no notes

Carrie: I have a huge time-sensitive TBR right now – which is why it baffles me that I read the first page of Infinity Gate by MR Carey ( A | BN | K ) given that I have never been able to put his stuff down once I start and this is proving to be no exception.

So, whatcha reading? Tell us in the comments!
