Hey Book Nerds!
I know this is pretty early, but I have already planned out my May TBR and I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys. I have 7 books on my list, which is ambitious for me, but I have some that I definitely want to read and then some that I can choose from if manage to finish the other books, or what to read something different. Here are the books I hope to read in May:
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
I received this book in the April Owlcrate box and just really want to read it. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book and I can’t wait to read it.
Behind the Lens by Cassandra Giovanni
I have been meaning to read this book since March and I’m mad at myself that I haven’t read it yet! I absolutely loved Out of Beat (the first book in this series) and after raving about it for like a week on Twitter, Cassie was kind enough to send me an arc of Behind the Lens. So I need to read it ASAP because I need to be back in this world and need to be ready for the third book when it comes out.
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
You guys have seen this book on many TBR’s from me, but this month I finally want to read it. It’s short, and I love Nicholas Sparks, so it shouldn’t take me any time to get through this.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I pre-ordered this book back when it was coming out, and I have still yet to read it. I started it when I got it, but I don’t think I got very far before I put it down because I didn’t have time to read. Well, it’s finally time that I read it, and this will hopefully be the month that that will happen.
Cruel Summer by Alyson Noel
You guys know Alyson Noel is one of my, if not my #1, favorite authors. I’ve loved everything that I have read by her, so I need to continue to read her books, considering I own almost all of them. I’ve had this book for a really long time, so it’s about time I finally read it.
This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
As you guys know, I read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith last year and loved it. Then, earlier this year I read Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between, and thought it was just okay. I own two more of her books, so I want to continue to read them to see if I like her books or not, since I’ve had one that I loved and one that was just meh. This one sounds really cute and I’ve been wanting to read it for a while now, so May is the perfect time to do that.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Much like the rest of the books on this TBR, I’ve had this book for a really long time as well and really need and want to read it. I’ve heard really good things about this one too, so I just need to read it already.
As you’ve probably noticed by now, there are two themes to this TBR. 1. reading mostly contemporary romances. I’ve just really been in the mood for contemporary romances so I thought now would be a good time to knock those off my shelves. And, 2. reading books I’ve had for a long time. This year, I made a goal to focus on reading more of my books that I have had on my shelves for a long time. As much as I love reading my newer books, I need to give the books that I’ve had for 5-10 years some love too.
What all are you planning on reading in May?
