#IndieApril Recommendations

What is #IndieApril? It’s a chance to discuss all things indie author and books! There are so many great stories out there in the indie book world, so when I heard #IndieApril was a thing, I wanted to share a few of my favorites! (Book titles link to Goodreads pages.)
The Electrical Menagerie by Mollie E. Reeder
Talent competitions! Stars! Sylvester Carthage!

The Inkling by K.T. Ivanrest
Great characters, an immersive world, and ink dragons!

Lightless by K.T. Ivanrest
A high-stakes chariot race, flying horses, and glowing people. (Also: PHAIOS)

The Beast of Talesend by Kyle Robert Shultz
Fairy tale reimaginings with an alternate history twist.

Where the Woods Grow Wild by Nate Philbrick
Mysteries and friendship and a magical forest!

The Girl Who Could See by Kara Swanson
Parallel worlds in danger lend high-stakes and a fast pace to this novella.

Threadbare by Bethany A. Jennings
A short story with unique powers and vibrant characters!

Finding Mera by Elizabeth D. Marie
A unique twist on The Little Mermaid fairy tale.

Masque by W.R. Gingell
A little bit fairy tale retelling + murder mystery with a lot of wit and humor.

Worlds Beneath by K.A. Emmons
A sequel with  intriguing character revelations and more Fin.

Iridescent by Kait Spangler
Mysterious and secretive people with superpowers? YES.

Rulers and Mages by Daley Downing
A fun expansion to the series fae lore and family dynamics.

And of course, I am rather fond of my own little book about reluctant assassins-to-be. ;) *whistles nonchalantly*
Do you have any favorite indie books? Tell me about ’em!


  1. I LOVE this idea! And EEEEE!!!! SO MANY GOOD ONES. The Electrical Menagerie, The Beast of Talesend, The Girl Who Could See, and OF COURSE, The Assassin’s Daughter! YES YES YES. I adore all of those SO MUCH. I've yet to read any of the others listed, sadly, but they're like ALL on my TBR. There's just so many great indie books out there! :D

  2. These are GREAT! I haven't heard of the majority of them, but will definitely have to add to my TBR list at some point... And of course, TAD must be included! ;D

    Thanks for sharing, girl!
