What I'm reading: April 2023

These are the top five books I'm looking forward to reading most this spring.

Is there anything better than enjoying a new book outdoors as the weather starts to warm up? Here are the top five books I'm looking forward to reading most this spring.

The Ingenue by Rachel Kapelke-Dale

I’m about halfway through this novel by the author of The Ballerinas. An atmospheric story with detailed characters that come to life, The Ingenue is a suspenseful tale about family, talent, ambition, and secrets.

The Family Bones by Elle Marr

This novel was called a “mesmerizing psychological thriller” by Publishers Weekly, a starred review that rockets it to the top of my TBR list. A young woman explores her family’s generational legacy of psychopathy in this new novel.

All the Dangerous Things by Stacy Willingham

Missing child? Check. Unreliable narrator? Check. This new novel by Stacy Willingham includes some of my favorite elements in a mystery. I’m looking into diving into the sophomore novel by this bestselling author.

Malice House by Megan Shepherd

A dead parent and family secrets set the stage for this otherworldly novel. A young woman finds her late father’s secret manuscript while clearing out his home, and as she begins to illustrate his dark monster stories, something eerie lurks with her in the house.

Waco: David Koresh, the Branch Davidians, and A Legacy of Rage by Jeff Guinn

I’m fascinated by cults and their leaders, and this book is the latest by author Jeff Guinn, who also wrote a detailed, fascinating account of Jonestown leader Jim Jones. This book sheds light on the siege at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, in 1993.
