Just Read It! Book Club April Read

Lexi from the The Literature Lion and I are hosting a book club every month and in March we read Dualed by Elsie Chapman, and we were able to hold an interview with the author which was a lot of fun! You can learn more about our book club at our introductions posts here and here. They are both the same post so either one will fill you in on the fun stuff we'll be doing! :)

It's the first week of April so means that we have a new book to read this month! It was a tie on the poll so Lexi and I tweeted out a question about the books to help us pick out of the three books that were tied. 

Poison by Bridget Zinn is our April Read this month!

Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses.

Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her? Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress—she’s the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

Now that we've released the book title, it's your job to go and read it within the next three weeks! Then you can follow this schedule for the rest of the month:
