It’s finally May! I love May 🥰
April went by really quickly and I believe May will be the same. I have plenty of garden work to do so audibooks will be my friend this month. There is also the Asian readathon which is a month long readathon happening and I did a seperate TBR for that.
I have generally been quite busy this month and not have plenty of blog hopping and reading other bloggers posts. I hope to do more of this in May 🤞

Need to Finish Already!!
I didn’t finish either of these last month. I’m getting sick of them being on here and on my WWW posts. I need to get through them!
The A to Z of Gender and Sexuality: From Ace to Ze by Morgan Potts – I started this one in March and it’s very interesting. There are so many terms I never knew! But it’s a big book and a reference book, so it’s a slow read. Hopefully, I can finish it this month though. I’m currently on T and Testosterone 🤷♀️😂
Sapiens; A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari – I started this book in January. I’ve had acccess to it on and off for these past 4 months. I’m borrowing from the library and I can’t extend my lending period so I keep having to give it back, and it’s so frustrating. Hopefully this month is the month. I’m halfway and I hope I will be finished or close to finishing by the end of the month.
Nocturna by Maya Motayne – This was on my most anticipated underhypder releases of 2019 and I’m very excited for it. I don’t know much about it but I do know it an Latin-inspired fantasy. And that is really all I know so far. I haven’t seen anything negative about it, nor have I seen much of it around the booksphere, to be honest.
Tali Nohkati by Koza Belleli – A Native American Inspired novel by a French author translated to English. This will be interesting. As far as my research goes the author has no relation to Native Americans or any relation to them. I hope this is not a misrepresentation or a poor representation. I hope its well researched, but we’ll see. I’ll be reading with my critical eye.
Book Club Book
A Fraction of the Whole by Steven Toltz – I’m not sure about this book. It doesn’t sound that great and its big (700+ pages), but it sounds funny so we’ll see. I have to read it for the book club though. Our meeting is Wednesday 29th May.
I did a full post on my Asian Readathon TBR, but in addition to that I have several Asian books I would like to read during this month including:
- The Terracotta Bride
- Waiting On a Bright Moon
- One Cone Glory
- The Darkest Forest
- It’s Not About the Burqa
- The Travelling Cat Chronicles
- I’m Afraid of Men
- Tiger’s Daughter
- Kingdom of Copper
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
What’s on your May TBR?
