Hello, sweet peas!
It’s my birthday month! But even without it, I think May is my favourite month of the year. (Followed by October.) In May a lot of MG books get released and while it’s definitely bad for my wallet, I’m so excited. (Also the reason, why I won’t make a goal that says I won’t buy any books. That would just be ridiculous.)
📚 Goal 1 – Read and review eArcs
I still have two or three that need to be reviewed. I hope that I get at least one done. I really have to tone down with the requesting.
📚 Goal 2 – Write at least 4 reviews
My forever goal. I really wanna make it this month. Last month I was not really up to speed but I hope that this month will be better.
📚 Goal 3 – Update the tbr page of my blog
I will probably put that on here until I actually do it. Since I keep piling books on that stack I’m afraid that will still take a while. On that note, does anybody actually look at that list?
📚 Goal 4 – Continue reading IT
This will probably also be a goal that will continue throughout the year. I’m not in a hurry. I just wanna say that I have read it.
📚 Goal 5 – Read at least 3 books from the tbr
It worked last month, so why shouldn’t it work this month! I really hope that I can work on my tbr and read some books off it. My dream is to get it down under a hundred this year. Under 150?
The Possibility Pile
Since I managed to read two (2!) books from the Possibility Pile last month, it obviously works. I am a genius. Several of these are from last year, so I really hope that will work. And by the way, it’s absolutely coincidental that these books are all purple.
📚 The Train to Impossible Places by P.G. Bell. I have actually already started that book. It was not bad, as far as i remember but I can also not really recall why I put it away. Maybe it just didn’t keep my attention? Anyway, I guess I’ll give it another try.
📚 Cleo Porter and the Body Electric by Jake Burt. I love Jake Burt’s writing. I feel like I had to save this book and read it some time before the next one comes out in autumn. I think it’s a good time now.
📚 The Storm Runner by J.C. Cervantes. I managed to convert the ebook I had so it’s readable on my Kindle. Well, I say readable. Unfortunately all the apostrophes have been replaced by €-signes and other letters but I think I can still read it.
📚 The Dream Snatcher by Abi Elphinstone. One of my favourite authors. I’m so thrilled about “The Crackledawn Dragon” coming out this month that I have to calm my excitement with another one of her books.
📚 The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune. Let’s try this again. I already put this on the pile two months ago but maybe it works better this time around.
📚 Owl and the Lost Boy by Amy Wilson. Another one of my favourite authors. In my birthday month I am allowed to treat myself, right? All the books by my favourite authors, that I have somehow abandoned on my tbr….oops.
What are your plans for May? Do you know any books on my list? Do you have any recommendations?
