May 4, 2018 • Cee • Discussion

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.

I read:

  • 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.

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!

How was your April? Tell me what’s on your  May TBR list. Have you read any of the books on my lists? Or are you planning to read them?

    I enjoyed My Lady’s Choosing, it was definitely fun but it also has its problems. I’m so excited to read the Royals, Rachel Hawkins books are always fun and I’m curious what shenanigans her characters will get into this time :D
