An along comes pretty little May… one of my favorite months. Flowers and trees are blooming and everything looks so bright and wonderful! I love the longer days and hopefully they will continue to be warmer. Of course May means that the school year is coming to a close, which means things get a bit busier for me, but hopefully I will continue to find lots of time for reading.
Let’s first take a look back at my April TBR and see how I did. I read 8/9 of the books I had planned. The unread one wasn’t my fault. It didn’t come from the library before the month was done. Hopefully it will show up soon.
Not super sure what I want to read this month, but I do have a few that I know I will be getting my hands on soon.
June ARC’s that I need to read this month:
This month’s ARC are ones that I am really looking forward too. Three of them are by favorite authors, and the fourth looks like a lighthearted romance that will offset the other three nicely.
Donuts and Other Proclamations of Love looks like it will be a funny, lighthearted take on the enemies to lovers troupe. Plus how can I resist a book with a food truck as part of the story!
And of course I can never turn up a book by Maureen Johnson. The Truly Devious books were a favorite from the start and I am glad that we get to continue with these characters in a new setting. The Box in the Woods is the start of a new mystery for Stevie Bell and friends to solve.
That Weekend is another creepy thriller that I am really looking forward too. I have so far loved this author’s books so I have high hopes for another winner.
Other books I am hoping to read:
This Mortal Coil is an audiobook that I have had on my TBR for a while and I am looking forward to starting this science fiction story soon. I have been listening to a lot of fantasy lately so this will be a nice change.
Cemetery Boys got a lot of hype last fall and from what I can tell it was well deserved. I am really looking forward to getting around to reading this.
Defekt is the novella that didn’t come from the library that was on my TBR list from last month. I am hoping that it comes in a week or so. I really liked the first one am looking forward to this sequel.
Slough House is the newest book from this series. I am really looking forward to this one especially with the way things ended in Joe Country. I am not sure if there will be more in the series, but this sort of feels like it might be coming to an end with this book.
I think that is a nice selection of books. Although I will probably read more than 8 books in May, this is just the list of the ones I know I will be reading. I’m not sure what else I will be in the mood for but this list will at least get me started.
What are you planning on reading in May?
