Hello bookworms! I’m here today to bring you my May TBR. I read some great books in the month of April (Monthly Wrap Up | April 2018📖 ) so I hope this good luck continues into May and I discover more fantastic novels. I am also hoping to reread a couple of books in the upcoming month.
Firstly, just a little note, this post may seem blunt, flippant or rushed, and that is because I am (again) currently unwell. Crohn’s disease sucks! So I am sorry, again, if this post seems rushed. It isn’t my intention at all but I feel so unwell and just want my bed.
Anyway, here are the books I hope to read (and love) in the month of May!
Firstly I’d like to finish the book I am currently reading-
1. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
This was the second book I purchased on my Kindle, and that was because Hailey from HaileyInBookland recommended it on her booktube channel. I am 40% of the way through it and I am loving it so far! I hope this continues.
Now onto new books-
2. A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas
This book is so small, I could probably read it in one sitting and that is my aim! I loved the ACOTAR trilogy so much, ACOMAF is one of my favourite books of all time so when I saw this in my local Waterstones I just knew I had to pick it up. I can’t wait to read more about my baby Rhysand. I am so excited!
3. The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty
I bought this book solely for the purpose of keeping me occupied back when I was admitted to hospital back in April. I actually didn’t read it back then (because I was rereading one of my favourite books for comfort) but I have heard such good things about it since over all my social media accounts. I am really excited to read this.
4. Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi
If you read my April Wrap Up, you’d know I binge read the whole (original) Shatter Me trilogy and loved them with all of my heart. Once I finished Ignite Me I went and bought Restore Me straight after and I am BUZZED to read it.
5. The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon
I read The Bone Season a couple of months ago and adored it. I can’t wait to be back in the world and see Paige kick more ass.
6. An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
My best friend recommended this book to me and I am so excited to read it. I don’t know what it’s about and I don’t want to either, I just hope I enjoy it!
Now for the rereads-
7. Throne of Glass (REREAD)
My aim is to reread ToG 1-3 and then continue on with the series. I remember loving them but I just never continued after Heir of Fire and I don’t know why.
8. Crown of Midnight (REREAD)
I’m so excited to read these novels again. I can’t remember much so hopefully it’s like reading it for the first time.
9. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (REREAD)
I, for some reason, bought all three of these books on my kindle. I remember liking this books and finding them quite psychologically challenging.
10. City of Bones (REREAD)
I want to reread all of the Shadowhunter books this Summer! I loved them the first time so I’m hoping to like them even more this time.
There you have it! Those are the books I hope to read in the month of May. As always, I might read something not on this list during the month. It all depends on what I’m feeling like.
Thanks for reading!
