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.


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:

Β 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 byΒ Danielle JensenΒ 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?

      I’ll have to save your review for after I read and review it. I hope it’s good. May has been kicking my behind a bit. I feel the smallest bit stressed. Must not let it get to me!

    There are so many great books coming out this month. And I took your advice and started listing books that I have to read in the month, and it’s working out great. Sometimes I don’t finish all of them, but I do get a large chunk read.

    Oo, can I join you two on Hungry?? I need to read that one and I’m worried it’ll slip through the BEA cracks if I’m not careful.

      I’m not even going to BEA and I feel that books are slipping through the cracks. I even forgot to put a few of them in this post.. Excited about our Hungry read along πŸ™‚

      I started it but it got pushed to the side for other reads at the moment. I was enjoying it but less in the mood right now. I hope you enjoyed it.

    Amazing book list. I hope you enjoy all of these. I am looking forward to reading a lot this month. My Last Kiss looks great. I like it that you do a list of what you want to read that month. I think that’s a good idea. I find myself getting behind or spending too much time picking out the next thing to read. I may try a book pile next month!
    Happy May!

      You should try the pile of books approach. I feel that it helps me stay focused most times. Of course, for this pile I totally forgot like three books :-/ If you do it let me know!

    What a fantastic TBR pile! I wish I could make a pile like that and stick to it, but I’m such a mood reader these days. I’m hoping to get to Free to Fall and Dark Metropolis very soon. Both sound great! And all the reviews I’ve seen for Stolen Songbird make me wish I’d requested that one when I saw it on NG. Oh, well…it’s been added to my wishlist on Amazon. πŸ˜›

      I try to stick to my pile. I’ll make it then choose by mood which to start with. that’s been working fairly well. I didn’t request Stolen Songbird either so bought myself a copy since the reviews were so good.
