May will be short. As in, I don’t have a lot of priority May reads. That is perfectly okay because May will be busy (birthday + Fanime), and I’m not in a reading mood (help!).
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 APRIL
In April, I wanted to get six books read, and like March, I only read four out of the six books.
- What To Do When I’m Gone: Full of a mother’s advice to her daughter of what to do when she’s gone. I’m so anxious to read this because I never want to think about this but I have to in the event.
- Demi-Gods: A disruptive and disturbing relationship between a girl and her stepbrother.
- Space Opera: I LOVE CATHERYNNE M. VALENTE. “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy meets Eurovision.” YES PLEASE.
- Rise Up, Women!: The Remarkable Lives of the Suffragettes: History about the British Suffragettes.
- Be Prepared: A summer camp memoir about Vera Brosgol going to a Russian summer camp. Oooh.
- The Oracle Year: Fascinating to see what Will Dando does with the predictions he get. I can’t say I liked the ending, but it was good.
- What To Do When I’m Gone: Lots of advice from a mother to her daughter. Very anxious when I was reading this. It was lovely.
- Demi-Gods: A very uncomfortable book to read.
- Be Prepared: An amazing graphic memoir about summer camp and making friends. I felt for Vera because she just wanted to fit in and have friends.
I’ve gotten around to reading Space Opera (which breaks my heart, but I haven’t been in the mood to read) and Rise Up, Women!: The Remarkable Lives of the Suffragettes. I also read My Lady’s Choosing, and that was a really fun choose-your-own adventure type book.
|PRIORITY MAY READS
- All Summer Long: Summer, guitar-playing, graphic novel.
- If You Don’t Have Anything Nice to Say: Apprehensive about this book because it’ll make me angry. A girl who tweets a racially offensive tweet? IDK.
- Furyborn: I adore Claire Legrand, so I hope I love this (like her love her previous books).
|MAY BOOKS I WANT TO READ
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 March!
