For those of you who missed our list and are in desperate need of April releases to read, here is a simplified list of our twenty most anticipated books released in April:

  1. I so desperately want to read “Promise of Blood.” That’s another book I’ve been drooling over since I first saw the ARC start making the rounds.

  2. Frogged sounds suspiciously familiar to The Frog Princess.
