I am leaning towards reading Skyhunter for this prompt; Bookishfirst featured it last year so you can read the beginning to see if it is something you would enjoy! :smiley:

FYI, Circe (which I just finished) can also be applied to published in April, as it was published in April 2018. :wink:

Are these books we plan to read in April or books we already read that fit in the Bingo squares?


It’s intended to be books that you read in April!


You could try any of the Hogarth Shakespeare books? I like Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood the best.
