April 2019 Book Releases I’m Excited About!

I should probably call this article ‘April 2019 Book Releases That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon.’

Because let’s be real – I’m not on any publishers’ must-send-copies-to list. I ain’t getting any of these copies either as ARCs or as soon as they are published. Yet. Also, many won’t be released in India at reasonable prices. Huh! Hopefully the future will be different and I can get even more excited about new releases than I am today. And that’s saying something.

This is a series of blog posts that I plan to put up every month, talking about books that are scheduled to release each month. That way, I can keep track of all the books I’m missing out on and you can decide which books you want to spend your money on in that month.

Here’s the list of the books that are scheduled to release or released this April and that I’m insanely excited about.

#1 – Machines Like Me by Ian McEwan

Machines Like MeA story about synthetic humans from the guy who wrote a heartbreak as Atonement. I should probably be prepared to have my heart broken because this guy can do anything.

#3 – Small Days and Nights by Tishani Doshi

Small Days and NightsI’ve been seeing this book all over Bookstagram and every review has I’ve laid eyes on has been positive so far. So imagine the intrigue that it has managed to evoke in me! Not to forget the topic – maintaining love and relationships, and not only the romantic kind.

Publisher: Bloomsbury India

#4 – The Patient Assassin by Anita Anand

The Patient AssassinYesterday marked 100 years since the ghastly massacre that took place in Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar.

#5 – The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters by Balli Kaur Jaiswal

The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill SistersFrom the author of the superhit comedy novel, Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows, this book is also one that only needs its title to pull someone into buying it. I haven’t read the Erotic Stories, but it’s on my wishlist and I’m hoping to read it as soon as possible – basically a description of my entire Amazon wishlist.

Publisher: Harper Collins

Release Date: 30 April 2019

#6 – Meet Cute by Helena Hunting

Meet CuteThe title says it all! And this seems like a breezy read to get through after one of those heavy books that I have promised myself I’ll read throughout this year. Because 12 books this year are SUPPOSED to contain important books. *eye roll* Anyway, let’s hope the price for this one plummets asap so that I can lay hands on this one!

Publisher: Piatkus

Release Date: 9 April 2019

#7 – Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed by Lori Gottlieb

Maybe You Should Talk to SomeoneWith a title and premise as interesting as this one, there’s no doubt about why I’m excited to read this one. Non-fiction isn’t really my thing, though I’m slightly changing as the days go by and with each non-fiction book that I have the pleasure of reading. Maybe this one will be one of those that will help me further!

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Release Date: 2 April 2019

#8 – Life Will Be the Death of Me:… and you too! by Chelsea Handler

Life Will Be the Death of MeI’m not a fan of Chelsea Handler but I don’t dislike her either and that’s because I haven’t watched her as much as I should have. Does that make sense? But I do want to read this book, and not to sound creepy but before I do pick it, I plan to follow her work and get a general idea of who she is outside of the book.

Publisher: Spiegel & Grau

Release Date: 9 April 2019

#9 – The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews

The Boy Who Steals HousesThis is another book that has been all over bookish social media and I’ve been so enchanted by it after I read the blurb that it absolutely had to make its way onto this list. But again, like so many books, this remains out of reach for me at the moment because it’s so expensive. Ugh.

Publisher: Orchard Books

Release Date: 4 April 2019

#10 – Notes from a Young Black Chef by Kwame Onwuachi, Joshua David Stein

Notes from a Young Black Chef“By the time he was twenty-seven, Kwame Onwuachi had competed on Top Chef, cooked at the White House, and opened and closed one of the most talked about restaurants in America.” – That’s all it needed for me to put it here. I’m sold. Again non-fiction, but I’m up for it.

Publisher: Knopf

Release Date: 9 April 2019
