Flavor of the Month: April 2015

Flavor of the Month is a monthly feature here in Books and Insomnia that features new book releases this month.

Happy April 1st, peeps! The semester officially ended last week so I now have more time for reading. Yay! ^__^ I think I might be able to catch up on my TBR now that I don't have school to worry about. . . Or not. Who am I kidding?! My TBR is a never-ending pile! Every time I finish a book, ten more are added to the pile! #BookwormProblems ^__^ Anyhoo, to know what books are releasing this month, check out this list and be prepared for your TBR piles to explode.

Julie @ Books and Insomnia

Julie is a Filipina blogger who pretends she has insomnia so she can stay up late reading. When she's not buried in books, she can be found watching anime, drinking chocolate-flavored instant coffee, lurking on the internet, daydreaming and talking about herself in third person. She loves purple and anything sweet!


  1. I'm really looking forward to Finding Paris! It looks like such a good contemporary.

  2. I think I have like 30 books on my April shopping list. It's crazy!

  3. Wow! How am I ever going to get caught up with all this reading? Such an amazing year for YA.

    Gorgeous blog ;)

  4. sooooo many April releases I'm hoping to read. Particularly, I'm hoping to immediately get my hands on Challenger Deep, An Ember in the Ashes, and Every Last Promise!
