May started out as a really slow reading month, but then I went on a trip for work, and man, I ended up getting a lottttt of reading done while on my trip! I ended up reading 8 books in May, and I actually really enjoyed most of them! Read on to see what I read and what I’m planning on reading in June!
May is such a great month for new books! There are SO MANY books that i’m looking forward to this month.
In no particular order, I’m most looking forward to the following books in May:
Finale – I actually finished this over the weekend, but it was 100% my most anticipated May release!
Aurora Rising – I’ve heard so many great things about this book so it’s definitely one that I can’t wait to read.
We Hunt the Flame – I realllllyyyy need to finish this book- I’ve had an ARC of it for a little while now, and I really just need to sit down and get into it.
Kingsbane – I loved Furyborn when I read it last year, so I’m super excited to read Kingsbane.
Dark Shores – I read Dark Shores back in April and it was definitely really good!
The Candle and the Flame – I’ve seen so many good things about the Candle and the Flame on Twitter, so I’m definitely looking forward to reading it.
Nocturna – My friend Bee got the Fairyloot version of Nocturna in her April box and it looks like a super cool book!
The Kingdom – I’ve been seeing things about the Kingdom all over Instagram and Twitter, so I’m really excited to see what the hype is all about!
What all new releases are you looking forward to in May?
Man, April went by so fast and so slowly at the same time! The first half of April was great for reading- I finished 5 book!- the second half of April? Not so much. I only read one book in the second half of April! Also, the first 10 days of May went by SO FAST that I wasn’t able to get this blog written and up until now! I’m blaming work.
In April, I read:
The Queen’s Resistance 4.5/5 Stars
Deathcaster 5/5 Stars
Ash Princess 4/5 Stars
Dark Shores 4/5 Stars
Storm and Fury 4/5 Stars
Six of Crows 5/5 Stars
So overall, rating wise, I read some pretty good books in April!
Picking my May TBR has been so hard because I’ve been super unmotivated to read. So far, in the first 10 days of the month, so much has happened in my non-bookish life that reading has definitely taken a backseat (and I’m trying to catch up on Game of Thrones and since I’m super behind, that’s throwing a major wrench into everything). I finished Crooked Kingdom already this month, so yay for one book completed! I absolutely loved Crooked Kingdom (and Six of Crows!), so I’m hopefully going to be writing a review for both of those books soon!
Here are the other books I’m planning on reading this month:
King of Scars
The Evil Queen
Crown of Coral and Pearl
An Anatomy of Beasts
A Discovery of Witches
Once A King
I’m going on a work trip later this month, so we’ll see how much reading I can get done during that. What all are y’all reading this month?
