The last couple of months I’ve had fairly successful reading months and I’m hoping to continue this through the month of May. I’m very excited for each of these books, so let’s get to my May TBR!
Warcross by Marie Lu
Warcross is a book carrying over from the month of April and I’m still about 79 pages in. I’ve already gone over this book in my April TBR, but essentially Warcross is about a girl named Emika Chen who becomes an over-night gaming sensation when she accidentally hacks herself into the opening ceremonies of the Warcross Championships, the biggest gaming event in the world, and the secrets that she discovers in the aftermath.
I've always loved Marie Lu’s characters and her writing, so I’m very excited to continue this book this month.
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
Continuing on from reading Red Queen last month, I plan on diving into Glass Sword this month. There is not a whole lot that I can say about this book without spoiling what happens in Red Queen, but it essentially picks up right where the previous book leaves off and if it’s anything like the first book, I’m sure it will be a ride.
Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard
The next read that I’m hoping to get to the month is a bind up of two novels, Queen Song and Steel Scars, in the Red Queen series. Like Glass Sword, there is not much I can say without spoiling aspects of the first book, but there are two perspectives in these novellas that I don't believe we really see in the main series that I’m definitely excited to read about.
You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner
I was purusing the shelves in my local library when I found this last minute edition to my May TBR. You're Welcome, Universe follows a deaf girl named Julia, who is kicked out of the Kingston School of the Deaf after creating a graffiti mural to cover up a slur about her best friend. This "friend" snitches on her and Julia finds herself in a suburban public school. Her art is all she has left, but when she finds that she's not the only vandal in the suburb, she finds herself dragged into an all out graffiti war.
I've never read a book with a deaf protagonist, nor have I read a book where the main characters passion was creating graffiti murals. I'm very excited to dive into this story and read a contemporary that focuses on a protagonist that preceives the world in a very different way than I do.
Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas
Due to my great 2017 reading slump, I have many popular releases from last year sitting in a pile on my bookshelf. And a lot of them are dense, including this one! Tower of Dawn is the 6th novel in Sarah J. Maas's Throne of Glass series, so because it's the 6th book in a series there is not much I can say about this novel without getting spoiler-y (or without being confusing).
The first novel, Throne of Glass, follows 18-year-old Celaena Saradothien who has served a year of her prison sentence doing hard labour in the salt mines of Endovier. She is offered a chance to escape by the Crown Prince, but the catch is she must become his champion in a competition to find the King's new royal assassin.
It's safe to say that a lot has happened since this first book, but I'm excited to find out what the particular characters in this book have been up to!
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
The last two books that I plan to read in the month of May are the books that I need to read to try and stay on track for the Dreg's Society Shadowhuneter Chronicles readalong.
City of Fallen Angels is the fourth book in Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series and to be honest it's the one that I remember the least. I remember some basic plot points that happen, but becuase it has been so long since I've read it it's difficult for me to clearly say where City of Fallen Angels ends and where City of Lost Souls begins.
Clockwori Prince by Cassandra Clare
The second Cassandra Clare book that I plan to read this month is Clockwork Prince from her The Infernal Devices series. I re-read Clockwork Angel last month and I forgot how much I loved and missed this stories and these characters. This will likely be my last read for the month if I have the time, but I'm hoping to get to it!
That's all for the books that I'm hoping to read in the month of May. If there are any books that you're excited to read this month, let me know in the comments/tweet me/leave a comment on my Instagram post. I'd love to hear what you're all exctied to read!
Until next time, have a lovely rest of your day and read something awesome!
