After months of reading under blankets, besides the fireplace or in your wintery bed, it’s wonderful to get out of the house and sit outside and enjoy the warm spring air at long last. No avid reader would be complete without a spring-novel novel or two to enjoy their spring afternoons and evenings, and the latest releases offer enough material to keep you busy until the summer blockbusters take-over the market in a few weeks.

Every few weeks we like to check-in with the Amazon Book Editors to find the best books coming out each month, and as always, April is filled with wonderful choices. The list below was chosen by the Editors at Amazon, highlighting the top releases in a wide-array of genres and authors. There are two major releases on the list, one from Jon Krakauer and the other from Toni Morrison, but there is also the latest work from Jon Ronson author of ‘The Psychopath Test’ to look forward to in April. If you want to switch things up with a comedy, there is also the latest work from Mary Norris releasing this month. Here is the official list for April 2015.
