April 2018 TBR (#ApTHRILL, #SpringHorror, OWLsReadathon2018, #UnslumpAThon, #AYearAThon, #PrideAThon, #AprilAThon, #UnicornReads)

October TBR (12)

Today I’m going to be sharing my March TBR. While I’ll be sharing my reads for March, keep in mind that this isn’t all set in stone. I’m terrible at sticking to TBR’s. I’ve noticed that I own quite a few Thiller and Mystery Books, most of these are eARC’s, which I will try to get to this month. I’ll also be posting this months Book Haul/TBR Revisit tomorrow. I’ll be Mentioning a lot of books as usual, So let’s just get into this TBR:


(Sunday, April 1st – Monday, April 30th)


This is another challenge hosted by Kathy @ Books and Munches and I can’t wait to take part in this one! This is all month long, and is dedicated to thrillers, horrors and suspense novels!! I have a quite a few Thriller Novels that I own and a lot of eARC’s. So it will be great to finally get to some of those.

Thriller is one of my favourite Genres, but It’s also one of the genres that I read the least of. This Challenge is right up my alley and I thought this would be a good opportunity to pick up some of those books I have been collecting on my shelves, and tackle a few books from my list on NetGalley. So, let’s just get into the TBR and what I’ll be reading:

  1. Once again, that’s a HUGE tbr, haha! I love seeing all the different read-a-thons and challenges in one post with your TBR. 😀 I’m also getting my OWL’s this month! Honestly, I couldn’t not join in that challenge when I came across it – it’s PERFECT. 😛

    1. Thank you, I love writing up this post! I have so much fun with this. It’s one of my favourites to write!

      And yes, the OWL’s reading challenge is honestly the most perfect thing I’ve ever come across, so of course I had to join! There are so many readathons/challenges happening and I want to paricipate in all of them and read all of these books, but there’s only so much reading I can do! 😅

      1. Haha, I can imagine. I miss the time where I’d combine at least three readathons / reading challenges and then go to puzzle with my TBR so I had as many books as possible fitting everything. 😛 Some day, I’ll do it again!

        Hahaha, exactly! Which is why you should simply going with the ones screaming your name loudest! 😛
