It’s May 1st, which means I am late to posting my TBR for my own readathon. Oh well, I’m late to doing a bunch of things. So without further ado, here is my TBR for the month of May.
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
I got my copy when I went to South Africa a few years ago and I would love to get to it. I also normally randomize my TBR, and this has supposed to be my next read for months.
Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman
This is another top of the TBR because of a randomizer book. I’ve also heard amazing things about this one and there’s mental health rep.
Descendant of the Crane by Joan He
I’ve been hearing amazing things about this one and I’m a little salty I got denied on Netgalley.
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
I have my copy of King of Scars waiting for me to read, so this is my next step on my journey through The Grisha Trilogy.
What I Lost by Alexandra Ballard
I’ve heard this has really good eating disorder rep from some ownvoices reviewers, so I’m excited to get to this one.
Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
This is one of the books I’ve had the longest and I need to get through some of the short story collections I have.
The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston
Geekerella was adorable, so I’m excited to get to this one. One of the prompts I came up with was also to read a retelling and this one fits.
Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich, Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul
I love the musical, but I know the plot isn’t the best and I haven’t heard great things about the book. I’m really interested to see what I think of it.
The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this one and I’m excited to get to it.
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
This is a reread for me, but the hold I placed in October at my library finally came in. I’m actually halfway through it already. (It’s 11pm on May 1st at this point)
Summer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman
I’ve sort of barely started this one, but I have to return it this month which means it has to get done during the readathon.
Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
This one doesn’t quite make sense considering I’m in the middle of King of Fools, but I’ve found I don’t really remember what happened in Ace of Shades. I also had to use up my Hoopla credits for April.
King of Fools by Amanda Foody
I wanted to have a review for it up on time so badly, but life got in the way. I should have it done by tomorrow.
There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon
This comes out on May 14th so I’m trying to finish it before then. I’m insanely excited for it because it features a fat athlete and Sandhya Menon’s books are always fun to read.
Imagine Us Happy by Jennifer Yu
I got accepted for the ARC right before this came out in the middle of essay season. I feel insanely guilty for taking so long to get to it so I’m hoping I can finish and review it this month.
All that means with the “bonus books” from the challenges that if I read everything here I will have a total of 28 books. I guess this means I’m shooting for Ruler of the Gods. Wish me luck because this TBR is ambitious.
