Hey and howdy.
April was not the reading month I wanted it to be. I was super excited about my TBR last month but most of the books I wanted to read were ones I had physical copies of. The problem there being that I was away for most of Easter so couldn’t read any of them.
As I’m writing this there’s still a week and a bit left of April but I’m calling it quits on this month early. I can’t explain why I’m doing this, because I don’t know, but basically any books I read from now on I’m going to class as May reads.
Like I said, I can’t explain why I’m doing this, I just know that this is going to help me avoid a reading slump so I’m just rolling with it.
With that being said, here are the books I want to read in May (… and the last week of April).
Belladonna by Adalyn Grace – I was lucky enough to recieve an ARC of this book. Not going to lie it was the cover that first grabbed my attention and seeing the 4+ star rating on Goodreads pushed me to request it. I don’t like knowing overmuch about books before I dive in, but what I do know about this book is that it follows an orphaned girl who’s guardians, who are always more interested in her wealth then her, end up dying. I’m very interested in seeing what this book has in store.
Terms & Conditions by Lauren Asher – Considering how much I was anticipating this book before it’s release I’m shocked at myself that I haven’t read it yet. In my defence I’ve been busy. Keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll find time this month to read it though.
My Body by Emily Ratajkowski – I‘ve been feeling drawn to this book for a while now so I’m feeling determined to read it soon. I’m really interested in what this book has to say about being in the limelight and having your beauty be your career in such a brutal industry.
A Little Bit Country by Brian D. Kennedy – This book will definitely be getting read this month because I’m part of the blog tour! My favourite author, Erin Hahn, has been raving about this book which is what got me interested in it. It’s about a boy with dreams of making it big as a gay country star and there’s some sort of romance involved. I’m very excited about this one!
We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – I’ve invested in Kindle Unlimited on a trial basis. I’m gonna keep it through the summer at the very least cause that’s when I’m gonna have the most time for quick and easy KU romances. After reading Hood Femenism and Women Don’t Owe You Pretty and I want to read more like that, hence why I’m gonna try and check out this book this month.
Darling by K. Ancrum – When I had to order some books for uni last week I decided to “treat myself” and buy this highly anticipated book right along with it and even though I should be prioritising these uni books, and the books I’ve had for ages, I’m dying to read this! It’s a Peter Pan retelling but that’s all I know, that’s all I want to know. Check out my review if and when it comes!
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover – I need to jump on the Colleen Hoover train. Will May be the month? I really hope so!
Now that I’m looking over this I’ve realised all of these books are ones I’ve only got my hands on this year. That’s directly going against my goal of reading books I’ve owned for a long time so maybe I’ll add another one or two.
I feel like I should also say check out my April TBR. I didn’t want to repeat books from there but I will be reading as many of those as I can this month aswell because I really was excited about them all.
I’m hoping for a good reading month this May but also it’s my last month of uni which means assignments so who the hell knows. Please keep your fingers crossed for me. I’d love to know your thoughts on these books, plus what you’re reading!
