April New Release Megalist: The Sequel

My goal in life is to 1) read as many books as I can and 2) tell people about as many of them as I can. Which I why I am sending another list today – I have read several of these and want people to get a chance to hear about them, or maybe see something coming out that you’re excited about. So here’s another big list of titles to pump up your TBR because YAY BOOKS!

Sponsored by The Neuroscientist Who Lost Her Mind by Barbara K. Lipska

As a deadly cancer spread inside her brain, leading neuroscientist Barbara Lipska was plunged into madness—only to miraculously survive with her memories intact.  In the tradition of My Stroke of Insight and Brain on Fire, this powerful memoir recounts her ordeal, and explains its unforgettable lessons about the brain and mind.

Speaking of new books, on All the Books! this week, Amanda and I discussed several great books, including Circe, Indian Horse, and Anna Karenina.

(And like last time, I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have read and loved. There are soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to read!)
