It’s May! Which means one thing… it’s my birthday in just a few days! I know a lot of people with May birthdays – mine’s on the 7th. Anyone else here a May baby? 💕
April was a relatively good month for me reading wise. Although I didn’t exactly stick to the TBR I set for myself at the end of last month, I did still manage to read 4 books, which is pretty good going for me if you consider that I work full time and performed in a show this month!
What I set out to read:
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carol
So, I didn’t actually read a single one of these books… oops! 😂
What I Actually Read:
The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 (View Full Review)
A Gathering of Shadows – V.E Schwab ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Girl of Ink and Stars – Kiran Millwood Hargrave ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I will be writing full reviews for all of these books over the next couple of weeks, so stay posted!
I’m hoping to get a fair amount of reading done this month, as I’m going home for a week, which means loads of time to myself including two 3.5 hour train journeys and 5 days during the week when my parents are out at work!
Knowing me though, I’ll end up seriously procrastinating… 🙄
Anyway, here are the books I hope to read this month:
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – with the release of ACOWAR tomorrow, I had actually hoped to get these read during April, but that just didn’t happen in the end, so I hope I can catch up! I absolutely love the TOG series, so I’m hoping Maas doesn’t disappoint me here.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – The YA book club book of the month that I’m running (I actually do NEED to read this one…)
Letters From The Lighthouse by Emma Carrol – I also run a 9-12 book group, and this is the pick for this month… it has a WW1 setting, so I’m bound to love it! (Reading a kid’s book is a nice bit of relief)
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – I WILL get this book read this month, even if it kills me!
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carol – A short one to tick off my never ending TBR… I should have read this years ago!
Release by Patrick Ness – The storyline of this new book by Patrick Ness takes place over the course of one day. Meaning I can read it in one day… right?
I should stop there… that’s a lot.
I’d better get started right now, or I’ll never make it! 🙈
