This post is obviously incredibly late. I'd love to say that the April one will be more timely, but I'm not at all able to promise that.
One positive, however, is that I've been able to catch some of the books with delayed releases. This seems to be increasing again and I encourage you to check your pre-orders for updates.

Jane Austen's Emma goes Bollywoood in this delightful retelling from the highly acclaimed author of Accidentally Engaged, perfect for fans of Abby Jimenez and Jasmine Guillory.
Kamila Hussain’s life might not be perfect, but, whew, it’s close. She lives a life of comfort, filled with her elaborate Bollywood movie parties, a dog with more Instagram followers than most reality stars, a job she loves, and an endless array of friends who clearly need her help finding love. In fact, Kamila is so busy with her friends’ love lives, she’s hardly given any thought to her own . . .
Fortunately, Kamila has Rohan Nasser. A longtime friend of the family, he’s hugely successful, with the deliciously lean, firm body of a rock climber. Only lately, Kamila’s “harmless flirting” with Rohan is making her insides do a little bhangra dance.
But between planning the local shelter’s puppy prom, throwing a huge work event, and proving to everyone that she’s got it all figured out, Kamila isn’t letting herself get distracted—until her secret nemesis returns to town with an eye for Rohan. Suddenly, it seems like the more Kamila tries to plan, the more things are starting to unravel—and her perfectly ordered life is about to be turned upside down.
Why I Want to Read It - I read this on audio thanks to Hachette and loved it so much I purchased a print copy to gaze at adoringly on my shelf. Heron took the Clueless approach to Emma and gave it a thoroughly modern Muslim Indian-Canadian update. The Emma character has an Instagram with her dog, loves bright fashion AND she's an accountant. The secondary cast was great, too. Read this book. You'll want biryani nearby.
