Since ARC April was so disappointing for me, I am choosing some of the same books here they are (I swear I will read them this month)

I will be using strike-through to show progress :)

 Need to finish The Well's End by Seth Fishman  / Have had Defy by Sara B. Larson on my shelf for way too long

These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1)
Need to finally read this adorable book - The Enchanted Emporium: Suitcase of Stars by P.D. Baccalario  / These Broken Stars by Amy Kaufman and Meagan Spooner  - I have been trying to listen to this audiobook for months

I will add more when I finish these....

Dreary & Naughty: Friday the 13th of February Coffin Hill Vol. 1: Forest of the Night
 I am adding on a few Netgalley titles that I have had: Dreary & Naughty: Friday the 13th of February and Coffin Hill Vol. 1: Forest of the Night (I need to review these, Coffin Hill comes out on May 20th)

  Orion Poe and the Lost Explorer
I also need to read Orion Poe and the Lost Explorer - release date May 22nd!

As always, Happy Reading!
