My May To Read Pile

I’ve not done a post on my to read list for the last few months and I’ve really not been doing that great keeping up. So, I decided I’d do it again to see if I can somehow get back up to speed on all my reads.

Here’s what I hope to be able to read this month. I’ve started a good amount of these and am enjoying them so far. I’d love to get all of May read and get a good start on June books.

MayReads

There are a lot of books I’m really looking forward to in that pile-though I must admit knowing I need to read them makes it a tad more stressful. I’m reading The Lovely and the Lost by Page Morgan with my wonderful friend Kelly from Effortlessly Reading. We plan on starting Hungry by H.A Swain afterward. I have a good start on The Last Policeman by Ben Winters and began A World Without Princes by Soman Chainani and The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead over last weekend. I think I might be the most excited about Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon since I’ve been hearing some fun buzz about it.

Upcoming Reviews:

 My Last KissThe Beautiful and the Cursed (The Dispossessed, #1)Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)

I plan on posting reviews for My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal, The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan, Stolen Songbird by Danielle Jensen all within the next week or so. Spoiler- I enjoyed them all. Of course, there will be other reviews for the remainder of May as well but these are the ones I’ve started.

Upcoming Lego Cover Art:
We are running so behind on the Lego cover art. We have pictures taken but have stalled out on the digital artwork due to life being busy. We are working on The Kiss of Deception by Mary Pearson now and will embark upon Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas next. I look forward to sharing both! Hopefully sooner than later.

Hopefully I can read like the wind and make a dent in my to read pile for this month. What are you reading right now?

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review. So excited about this book haul:

Borrowed:
Thank you Kelly at Effortlessly Reading

HalfBad
Half Bad by Sally Green

Ever since I saw the cover of Half Bad I was incredibly eager to read it. I’ve heard some mixed reviews but am excited to see how I’ll feel about it. I can’t thank Kelly enough for letting me borrow her copy.

Won:
Thank you Lisa at Badass Bookie and Nikki at There Were Books Involved!

 Alienated (Alienated, #1)The Unbound (The Archived, #2)
Alienated by Melissa Landers- signed and The Unbound by Victoria Schwab- Signed

I have read both of these and enjoyed them both. I’m so happy to add the signed copy of The Unbound to my Victoria Schwab collection. You can read my Alienated review here and my The Unbound review here. We also did Lego Cover Art-you can see it here. Thank you both so much for these books!

For Review (via publisher):
Thank you Macmillan and Disney-Hyperion

 BodyInTheWoodsPlusOneVisforVillain
Plus One by Elizabeth Fama, The Body in the Woods by April Henry and V is for Villain by Peter Moore

I am really excited about all of these because they are all so diverse. I have already read Plus One and loved it.  I’m honestly wanting to reread it again already. I tend to be mixed on super hero type books but I love when they focus on the villains so this hopefully V is for Villain will be fun. Other than the summary I’ve not heard a thing about this book.

For Review (via Edelweiss)

 Falls the Shadow
Falls the Shadow by Stefanie Gaither

This cover! Love it so much. I can’t wait to dive into it and see what it’s all about. That screaming face on the right gives me the shivers.

Gifted:
Thank you Stephanie at Inspiring Insomnia

TBSSigned
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner And it’s SIGNED by both of them!

If you’ve been following me for any length of time I’m sure you’ve heard me talking about my love of These Broken Stars (my review). I fell in love with the characters and story. I was lucky enough to interview Amie and Meagan which you can read here and we did a Lego Cover for this one too.

Last Week’s Posts:

My son came down sick on Wednesday and now my husband and I are sick. I didn’t have as much time this week so only posted twice.

I hope to have more time this coming week and post more reviews. I have an upcoming interview that I’m very excited for in the works so hopefully I’ll be able to have that posted soon. How was your week? Which books did you receive?
