May TBR 2017
This month is going to be super ambitious! I’m in a good groove with reading and I’m hoping to get all these books read this month!
I started an amazing sci-fi/fantasy series by Seanan McGuire, here’s the link to the first book Rosemary and Rue. The series is about halflings, fae-human, and she is a private investigator. In the first book, October “Tobey” Daye is searching for the murderer of one of her friends and mentors. I read the first quarter of this book in one sitting.
The second book I’m gonna attempt to read is Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I’m still trying to decide if I really want to read this seeing it’s being compared to The Night Circus in many of its ways. I haven’t read either of these books, but I kind of wanted to go into this one blindly.
The next book is hopefully going to be The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters. It takes place in 1900 Oregon, where Olivia is a headstrong and independent girl. Her father takes her to this hypnotist to take the rebellion out of her. She winds up with these powers that lets her see people for who they are. I love a good historical fiction book when I can find them. Plus, my friend Kris from Kai attempts blogging had mentioned it a while back, which made me intrigued to read it even more. I’m also thinking of reading another Cat Winters book, In the Shadow of Blackbirds. This one takes place in 1918 when the Spanish influenza was happening. 16 year old Mary Shelley Black watches as mourners flock to seances and ghost photographers, but never believed in ghosts until the boy she dated dies in battle and visits her. This sounds like something I would be interested in along with listening to some Apocalyptica.
I’m hoping to continue to read The Raven Cycle by starting Blue Lily, Lily Blue. This is the third book in this quartet. I can’t really tell you what this one is about as it will spoil you for the first two books in the series.
The final book on my list this month is Replica by Lauren Oliver. This book is told in two different perspectives, and is separated by girl and you can flip it back & forth to read chapter by chapter, read all of one girls story then read the other girls. It’s a pretty good way to get someone like me to read your books. Plus the cover is beautiful.
This is the plan, and of course with life it may change as I start books and my moods changing. I’m being over ambitious, but with the way things have been flowing I’ll hopefully be successful!
What are YOUR plans for this month?
