What Books to Read in April 2023

April- the month that says goodbye to cold winters and welcomes the summers. Do you know what this means? It’s almost summertime in 2023! It is one of the most enjoyable times of the year. I mean, what’s not to like- ice-creams, swimming, and new summer books! While the first two things we can enjoy with our family and friends, here let’s talk about some amazing books publishing in April 2023.

April is not one of my favorite times of the year for many reasons like heat, sweating, and laziness, but the one reason to like it outweighs all of it is new book releases! I know books publish all year round, but summer/spring books are the best and lightest, perfect to read while sipping cola and reading on your couch.

The novels coming out in April 2023 are energizing and ideal for the beginning of spring. The season for reading by the beach is almost here, so this list is chock-full of fantastic mysteries, thrillers, works of fiction, and romances. We also have a small amount of everything else.

Without further ado, let’s get into some of the exciting books to be published in April 2023!
