I am currently in the process of purchasing a home with my fiancee (which is so strange to think that I might own a home soon!) so I don’t know if I’ll be able to purchase all of these next month, but I really want to! I’m so excited for all of these books and can’t wait to get my hands on them. I already read House of Hollow – and you should totally check out my review here! – so I may hold off on purchasing a copy for a little since I’ve already read it, but who knows when I’ll be buying books again.

If all goes well, I’ll be making a stop to grab all of these beautiful books soon and will absolutely devour them! Which April release are you excited for?
