Our shelf for April is going to be Wishlist, as in I wish I had gotten this thread up earlier....

I always have a large number of books on my wishlist and it is fun to see what other people are wishing for. Plus it should be a shefl with a lot of variety since we are on short notice. Have fun with the list!

CluckingBell | 327 comments I'll probably read something coming up for my IRL book club, like City.

message 4: by Idit (new)

Idit I will probably read Fahrenheit 451

I have started it last month as an audiobook, but really really disliked the delivery. so I stopped before I would hate the book.

It was read by Tim Robbins - which I liked in few movies, but he feels very flippant about it. especially the way he read the women is super annoying

so anyways - I will read it instead this month with my eyes instead

Lena (lenaw) | 24 comments I'll read I'll Give You the Sun - it is on my mind for a while and this is a good opportunity to finally start it.

I'm thinking about one of these
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy}386162
An Ember in the Ashes

HOWEVER ... I just started Shantaram, so whether I'll get to anything else before April is over is anyone's guess. Why do I do this to myself?!

Rosemary | 849 comments This is a great idea for a shelf! I will read The Things They Carried which is also one of my Bookopoly picks for my next move :)

Also possible: Freedom

I am still behind on my Monthly shelf reading, so I will only plan one book for April: Salt to the Sea.

I haven't read Different Seasons, but I've read both I Capture the Castle (which I found good, though nothing special) and The Book Thief. I loved the latter and gave it 5 stars, so I would definitely recommend it!

Marina (sonnenbarke) | 1400 comments I noticed that I have quite a few in my wishlist as well - that's interesting!

I think I will read Vanity Fair, which I have planned for a group read in another group, although I'm a bit unsure I'll be able to finish it before the end of the month. I will also see if the other books I'll read fit in.

Tyra | 15 comments I'll read Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere in April. Last year I read Stardust and was positively surprised, I've been searching for something else by Gaiman and figured this could be a good choice

Karin | 801 comments Well, as it is on there 46 times, it's sitting at our house and I'm reading it for a different challenge, it's hands down going to be UnDivided

Tamara | 10 comments I'll read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1) by Ransom Riggs so it will count towards my oldest books on the to be read challenge too.

I loved it!

Joyce (eternity21) | 600 comments I have quite a few books on my TBR in this list

I will read Half-Blood and
A Short History of Nearly Everything I enjoyed Bill Bryson's other books so this should be interesting.

message 22: by Paige (new)

Paige (iampaigeb) | 79 comments Finished Harry Potter And the Philosopher Stone. Now I hope to read The Shining or Letters To The Lost next.

message 23: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Zaccaria | 92 comments I rarely give up on books but I had to stop reading Between Shades of Gray. Between the Young Adult simplified writing style to the awful narration on the audiobook, I just couldn't do it. But I'll watch the movie when it comes out because I'm still interested in the story,

Muyina Fail-Safe, just because it's been getting dust on my bookshelf for too long.
