I know I say this every month, but how is it already May? But, seriously, not leaving the house for a month has not helped with my sense of time. April felt like it took forever, but I also have no idea what day it is. Either way, it’s somehow (allegedly) May now, so it’s time to talk about my May reading plans!
The Dutch House by Ann Patchett
For some reason, I have always kind of avoided generational historical fiction. But I’ve realized that I do really like it (thank you, Pillars of the Earth). This is historical fiction marketed as “a dark fairy tale” and I clearly need to read that. Plus, Tom Hanks narrates the audiobook, so I will definitely be listening to this one. Because Tom Hanks.
The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel
Station Eleven is one of my favorite books, so I was so excited to read this one. I don’t even really know too much about it, but it’s supposed to be dark and mysterious, and it’s Emily St. John Mandel, so I’m reading it.
The Marriage Game by Sara Desai
This honestly sounds like a diverse version of The Hating Game and I am here for it! I’ve been craving some good romance novels lately (they’re definitely a great distraction right now), so I’m excited to give this one a shot.
This month, I also have an additional secret TBR for a post that will (hopefully) be going up closer the end of the month. I have a few of these reading projects planned, and I’m excited to start working on them. So I’m keeping this list short, because I have at least five other books I plan on reading this month.
I’d love to hear what you’re planning on reading this month, so let me know in the comments!
