I’ve been in a reading slump for the past two months, but I’m feeling better and I think I’m (almost) out of it – finally! I think this happened mostly because I was reading books I wasn’t super excited about, but I have finally finished all of them and now I’m excited to start a new month with a brand new TBR!
I’m feeling adventurous and I’m excited to read again, so this month I decided to read 8 books. I couldn’t narrow it down. Am I going to read all of them? Well, I’ll try but we’ll see.
I’m currently in a big thriller/horror mood, so I wanted to take advantage of it this month! Still, I tried to add some variety, so in this list we have 1 historical fiction, 1 science fiction, 1 romance, 1 fantasy and 4 thrillers. It’s probably a lot, yes, but it’s okay if I don’t read them all 🙂
So, without further ado, here’s my TBR for May!
- Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
I read about 70% of this book a few years ago, but I never finished it. It’s not that I wasn’t liking it, but I gradually stopped reading at that time. No one’s fault, but mine! I still remember most of the story and I fell in love with it, so I really want to start again and finish it this time. I already know I’m going to love this!
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer
A good friend of mine lent me this book, and I have it for about two years now – I’m ashamed, I know! I just have so many books I want to read, that this one never became a priority. It’s a huge book and I’m feeling a bit intimidated by it, but I really want to face it this month, so I decided to make it my challenge book. Then I can finally return it to my friend ahah!
- A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas
Not a lot to say about this one: I’m almost finishing this series, and I may shed a tear or two in the end, not gonna lie! This is a novella that is placed right after the original trilogy, so I think I’ll finish this quickly. I’ll probably read A Court of Silver Flames next month, because I’m really curious about Nesta! The series is really good, so I have no doubt this will be just as amazing.
- Little Darlings by Melanie Golding
I keep seeing Little Darlings EVERYWHERE. I think it’s a really popular book in the U.K., and I really want to know what the hype is all about. Lately I’ve been in a thriller/horror mood, so I’m excited for this one!
- If I Can’t Have You by Charlotte Levin
Another book I’m very excited about! I also don’t know a lot about it other than it’s a popular thriller in the U.K. and I have heard great things about it. I’m very curious to see what it’s all about!
- The Night Swim by Megan Goldin
Another book I’m very curious about! I also don’t know a lot about this one (and I prefer it that way), but I know it was a popular thriller a few months ago, so I’m expecting it to be a good one. The cover is very intriguing as well!
- The Good Girls by Claire Eliza Bartlett
I don’t know why, but I keep looking at this book. I’m just attracted to it, so I’m taking this as a sign and I decided to finally add it to my TBR this month. I don’t know a lot about this one, so I’m going in with an open mind! Aaaand the cover is really pretty.
- Sunkissed by Kasie West
Sunkissed is coming out this month, and I’m not even going to wait to buy a printed copy. I’m definitely buying the ebook just because I want to read it ASAP. I’m really craving a new Kasie West book, so I hope it’s good!
It’s a lot, yes, especially considering two of them are humongous. But this month I just want to focus on books I’m excited about, and this is the list I came up with!
What about you guys? What are you planning to read next month? Have you read any of these? Let me know!
