April was good so let’s see what I can to in May.
April went really well even though I read books which was not on my TBR, I ended up being ahead of my schedule and only three book left on the TBR. I’ll probably end up reading them in May.
I managed 11 books in April which pleases me, even though I didn’t finish my TBR.
May contains a round of TomeTopple which I’ m very much looking forward too. I have yet to decide what to read for it as the reading challenges have yet to come out but I have listed selection of three books.
This sums up to 8 books on my TBR… excluding the TomeTopple TBR.. oh shit.
I need a plan…
Let’s dive in!
The links will take you to their GoodReads page for each book. It the book doesn’t have a GoodReads page, the link will take you to their Amazon page. They are not affiliated links.
Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – it’s a shame I didn’t get to this in April. If I hadn’t read those non-TBR books I would have nailed my TBR, but oh well. On it goes to the May TBR.
Who Fears Death? by Nnedi Okorafor – this was my suggestion for the book club at work. In Apli I tried to read all the suggestions for the book club but I didn’t even read my own suggestion before the other ones… On to May TBR it goes.
The Girl and The Stars (Book of the Ice #1) by Mark Lawrence – I’ve wanted to read a Mark Lawrence book for a while having heard a lot of good things about the author. The Girl and The Stars is his first YA novel and I want to know who this is hence the eARC 🙂 Due out in the end of April and I didn’t get around to it. I hope to read this asap in early May.
Court of Miracles by Kester Grant – I loved Les Miserable when I read it a few years ago and I’m looking forward to reading this “Les Mis meets The Jungle Book” …?!?!
Tiger’s Daughter (Their Bright Ascendancy #1) by K Arsenault Rivera – This has been on my shelf for years. Its one of those books I’m really exited to read but never get that far. This will be my main read for TomeTopple I think.
I don’t know yet. I have several larger books which I might read for TomeTopple. I also have several YA contemporary books which could be quick reads. hmm. I need to think about this a bit more.
Rebel (Legend #4) by Marie Lu – OOO! yay!! the series continues! I though the 3rd book was the final book and ended slightly open in terms of the two of them. I’m quite exited about reading the 4th book to see what happens 🙂
Anyone else read and loved the Legend series?
Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey – I’m in a romance mood… According to Chelsea Dolling (Booktuber) this is one of her favourite romance reads so I reserved it entiery based on her recommendation even though we don’t like the same books, I kind of trust her on main stream romance.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas – This is my big read of the year! For the last three years I’ve read one 800+ page classic a year. It all started with Les Miserable, then Anna Karenina and last year was Gone With The Wind. However, in those previous years I started the book towards the end of the year leaving me to rush to finish it on New Years Eve. I have finish all those three long classics just before midnight every time. Three years running! I won’t have it this year! This year I’m starting yearly. And hopefully finishing in a decent time too. I hope to finish it sometime around summer so you’ll see this book a lot on my posts.
Update April: I didn’t manage to get started on this in March like I planned to. Maybe this month will be better…! I need to make a start on this. If I can do single-digit progress on this book I will be very happy 😀
Update May: This is the 3rd month I have it on my TBR without actually starting it… Though I have opened it and read part of the introduction… which isn’t saying much but hey! its a small step forward though I don’t count that as starting the book.
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
What’s on your May TBR?
