April’s TBR: A Dive into Fantasyland

I’m so happy to finally be getting to another theme month. Historical Fiction was a good start but I want to get this ball rolling. Moving stresses have really dampened my reading flow (especially in March), so I need some books to get me excited for April.

I have always loved Fantasy. One of the first books I remember reading was The Wizard of Oz and the world of Oz opened up my imagination. I hope this month I will experience new journeys and worlds as I read some staples in the genre.


1 Good Omens – Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

Later this year a mini-series adaptation is coming out, so I want to read the book a few months before then. The casting for the mini-series is so good, and I’m really excited for it.

2 Kafka on the Shore – Haruki Murakami

Before I venture to Murakami’s wilder books I was told Kafka was a good gateway. Also I hear there are talking cats.

3 The Library at Mount Char – Scott Hawkins

I love when authors go big and meld two genres together, and Mount Char has two of my favorite genres, horror and fantasy.

4 The Magician’s Land – Lev Grossman

I’m finally reading the last book in The Magicians’ trilogy and my body is ready for this dark trip.

5 The Phantom Tollbooth – Norton Juster

A couple of years ago I finally read A Wrinkle in Time and here’s another children’s book I should of read a long time ago.


Along with my Fantasy picks I also have the classics Candide and Far from the Madding Crowd, my Classics Club Spin winner, on my TBR this month. My library will determine if I get to any new releases this month.

I hope this goes well, as I want to do theme months about 5 or 6 months this year. With moving it will probably be the later months this year. I know for sure that I’m writing about horror in October. Nothing is stopping me there.

Happy Readings!
