My reading list this month is probably way too ambitious. Because not only do I have three ARCs I want to read and review, I’m attempting to finish up my most recent five-star predictions AND doing another secret TBR this month (in case you missed it, last month, I read retellings of my favorite Shakespeare plays). I think this one’s pretty fun, and I’m curious to see how it turns out, but you’ll have to tune in later to find out what it is and what books I’m reading. And, since it’s pride month, I decided to throw in a few LGBT books just for the hell of it. I am already regretting adding extra books to my TBR, but whatever.
What I’m Reading This Month
Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power. I am so unbelievably excited to have my hands on this book. I have been trying to wait closer to it’s release date to read it, but I couldn’t wait, so I actually already started this one. It’ll probably be the first book I finish this month
Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. This is another upcoming release that I am incredibly excited about. I loved Gods of Jade and Monsters last year, and even though I have no idea what this is about, I know I’m probably going to love it, too!
It is Wood, It is Stone by Gabriella Burnham. I really want to work on featuring more authors of color on this blog, and this is the debut novel from a Brazilian-American author. It sounds really great, and I’m looking forward to reading it and reviewing it later this month.
The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith. I have heard great things about this book, and the adaptation (Carol). It was included in Audible Escape, so I downloaded the audiobook and am planning to start it soon.
Lumberjanes vol. 3: A Terrible Plan by Noelle Stevenson. I really enjoy this series. The last volume was really great, and I’m excited to read more. A graphic novel seems like a great way to fit more LGBT+ reads in for pride month. Hopefully I can get to at least two volumes this month.
That’s it for my TBR this month! I hope you all have a great start to the month. I’d love to hear what you’re planning on reading to kick off the summer. And if you have any ideas (or guesses) for future secret themed TBR projects, let me know what you’d like to see?
