TBR Tuesday: May 2018

Hello! Cait Marie here with the first TBR Tuesday! Some of you may have noticed that I am going through books like crazy this year. However, for every book I read, it seems like three more are added to my TBR (To Be Read list). There are just so many things I want to read, especially now that I am branching out into other genres. So, I thought I would share some of the books on my TBR each week and see what you all think!

This week, I thought I would start with my May TBR. We are two weeks into the month and I have already finished four books. I might be setting a personal month-record here. I will talk about the books I’ve finished more in the book haul at the end of the month.

There are so many books I want and need to read this month! My new courses have started, and I am taking a literature class in which I have to read three books. I don’t have to read all three this month though, thank goodness! I also received a couple review copies of books. Plus, there were some highly anticipated releases this month. So, there’s a lot of reading happening!

Here are the books I want/need to read in May (the first four I have finished):

  • A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas – Released May 1 and finished by May 2. So, so good! If you’re obsessed with this series, you’ll love this novella. (Review)
  • The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth – Released April 10 and finished May 5. It took me a while to read this one, but I didn’t want to finish it because I didn’t want it to end! (Review)
  • Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch – I finally finished the first book in this trilogy and loved it! Full review coming soon!
  • Child of Water by Lela Grayce – The ebook is released May 17, the paperback was released May 7. I received an ARC of the ebook from the author and loved it! (Review)
  • War Storm by Victoria Aveyard – This was released today (May 15)! I am currently waiting for my copy to be delivered from Amazon. This is one of my top anticipated books of the year. I love the Red Queen series! I even get to meet Aveyard on Saturday!
  • The Gates of Golorath by R.M. Garino – I received a copy of this book from the author to review. I’m not very far into it yet, but I like it so far. It’s a lot of information to retain in the beginning, but I’m hoping it makes more sense the more I read.
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – I have to read this for class. I’m excited for this reread; I love the series!
  • The Road by Cormac McCarthy – I have to read this for class as well and I’m less excited for it. I got the book years ago at a garage sale, but could not get through it. Hopefully this time will be easier now that I love reading more.
  • Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia – I’ve started this one and would like to finish it this week. I am meeting Zappia with Victoria Aveyard this weekend, so ideally I would finish it before meeting her.
  • The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – This is one of our books for the SNHU Book Club this month, so I am going to try to listen to the audiobook before next week’s meeting.
  • A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab – This is for a different online book club. I’ve heard nothing but great things about Schwab and this book specifically. I was hoping that it being picked would motivate me to read it quicker, but there are a lot of books I have to finish before I get to this one!

If I have time, there are a few others I’d like to read:

  • Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton – Another SNHU Book Club book for the month.
  • The Healer’s Apprentice by Melanie Dickerson – The third book of the month for the SNHU Book Club. I have read this book before though, so I might just flip through it as a refresher.
  • Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare – I started rereading this trilogy via audiobook a few weeks ago, and the second and third books just became available on Scribd, so I want to finish them at some point in the near future.

I know, it’s a lot for one month! With the weather finally being nice and warm, I’m feeling more productive. As long as I can stay on task and not procrastinate, I will be able to get everything done. Mind you, I still have schoolwork, club meetings and tasks, and work Coffee House Writers, but who really needs sleep?

Have you read any of these? What’s on your TBR for the month? Let me know below!
