TBR: May 2017

Does anybody eagerly look forward to April 30 just so they can post the ‘It’s Gonna Be May’ gif courtesy of Justin Timberlake and NSYNC?


No, just me?

Moving right along, another month means another TBR and let me just start out by saying that keeping to this TBR might be hard because May is my most anticipated books book release month!

Some of these books have been on my shelf for a while, and some of them are brand new to my stack of books, but all of them will hopefully be read in May.

Interested to see which books are on the top of my TBR? Keep on reading to find out my thoughts and opinions.

Vimy by Pierre Burton

This book is being carried over from my April TBR because it is the only book I didn’t get to. Hopefully I can finally finish it so I can move onto other WWI non-fiction that I have acquired.

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

This book is a recent purchase for me, and was added to my collection because it is set in Russian and it’s a fantasy. Given that I have grown rather fond of the Russian setting so why not keep the ball rolling.

Lost Stars by Claudia Grey

April saw Disney host Star Wars Celebration. Of course, there were plenty of rumours about who was going to get the next anthology film. Is it Boba Fett? Obi Wan? I read a   rumour that this book could be a contender, and because I am a firm believer in reading the book before seeing the movie, I might as well get aquatinted with this YA Star Wars story.

If This is a Woman: Inside Ravensbruck: Hitler’s Concentration Camp for Women by Sarah Helm

This book, like Vimy, was a book I started without fully understanding how emotionally draining it would be. I didn’t get too far when I originally tried to read this, so it will be a complete restart for me. It is also a large book, so this book may or may not carry onward to my June TBR.

And that is my TBR for the month of May.

Of course, I will finally be able to get my hands on A Court of Wings and Ruin, so I will finally stop talking about my book lust.
