I did a better job reading my TBR in May. I didn’t quite get to all of it, but that’s okay.
For those who do not know, Too Much TBR is a way to help me see which books I really need to read and tackle them. Is it effective? Perhaps. It helps a lot seeing a visual of the books on my TBR pile.
Let’s discuss what I read last month, and what I’m reading this month!
|BACK IN MAY|
In May, I planned to read seven books, and I managed to get four read! Better than I thought
Book I read and finished:
- The Sand Warrior (5 Worlds #1) by Mark Siegel (Three kids teams up to light the beacon to save their world.)
- And We’re Off by Dana Schwartz (Girl goes to Europe and her mother decides to tag along. Yawn.)
- Shattered Warrior by Sharon Shinn and Molly Knox Ostertag (Fight for survival, but also found family?! UM YES!)
- The Fashion Committee by Susan Juby (Two teens competing for a scholarship to a private art high school. Who will be the victor?)
Comic I read and finished:
- Red Hood and the Outlaws • Volume 1: Dark Trinity (So much fun!!!! Jason Todd is A+++)
I started but didn’t finish yet:
- I Believe In A Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo (Didn’t really fulfill my KDrama needs.)
- Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman (Super fun! So much love for books!)
|PRIORITY JUNE READS|
- Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley (I actually finished this the other day, and it’s so frickin’ good! I love it sooooo much!)
- The Refrigerator Monologues by Catherynne M. Valente (I am in the midst of this book, and I LOVE IT. Catherynne’s writing is amazing. If you love books about comic ladies, this is it!)
- Aftercare Instructions by Bonnie Pipkin (I actually don’t know what to expect from this book.)
- Knife’s Edge by Hope Larson and Rebecca Mock (YES! THE SEQUEL TO COMPASS SOUTH.)
- Love and Other Alien Experiences by Kerry Winfrey (I hope this is as adorable as everybody says it is, even with aliens.)
I need to reread these comics because I’m meeting the creators of Motor Crush (Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart, and Babs Tarr) near the end of the month!!!!
- Batgirl • Vol. 1: Batgirl of Burnside
- Batgirl • Vol. 2: Family Business
- Batgirl • Vol. 3: Minefields
- Gotham Academy • Vol. 1: Welcome to Gotham Academy
- Gotham Academy • Vol. 2: Calamity
- Gotham Academy • Vol. 3: Yearbook
- Black Canary • Vol. 1: Kicking and Screaming
- Black Canary • Vol. 2: New Star Killer
Note: All these books here do not account for other books that may slip into my TBR list (because mood reading will probably happen) nor of the comics I will be reading. I’m sure I missed other books I want to read this month too, but since I can’t remember, it must not be priority, right? Let’s hope I make a dent in my TBR books for May!
