April 2021 TBR Last month I read all seven books, but upped it to 9 this month. I have my one hold over from the past two month that I kept switching out will get read. I’m reading my first Stephen King of the new year with Later. I’m reading my first Mary Kubica with Local Woman Missing she has been recommended a lot. I have a lot of fun reads in store for myself.
Later by Stephen King is his newest novel and a part of the Hard Case Crime series. I have read the first two the Colorado Kid which I hated and Joyland which I did enjoy. A couple of people I trust said Later is the best of the bunch. With King I will always get a little enjoyment out of it and am guaranteed to connect to a couple of characters. Later is about a kid that can see and talk to ghosts.
The One by John Marrs is one that I’ve wanted to read for sometime I have enjoyed the three John Marrs books I’ve read so far. The One is about a match-making site that can tell you who the one is with out question, until hackivists take it over and make who they want a match. The One has been turned into a Netflix series that I really want to watch but will wait until I read the book first.

he Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier my other holdover form last month it reminds me a lot of the plot of Pixar’s Coco.
