Putting together my TBR for May felt very different. For the past year and a half, I’ve been planning my monthly books based around criteria. However, for May, I chose my criteria around my TBR. I’m really excited for the books I’m reading this month, and so many of them are ones that have been on my TBR list for a while now, and I’m so excited to actually get to read them!
To start out, I’m going to list the books I chose for this month, and the criteria that it fits with!
1. Dear Evan Hansen, The Novel (A Book Based on a Previous Reading Rivalry theme – Musicals)
2. A Large Expanse of Sea – Tahereh Mafi (A Previous Reading Rivalry Author Highlight)
3. Everless – Sara Holland (An Author’s Debut Novel)
4. Firstlife – Gena Showalter (A Book You Decided To Read Based On The Cover)
5. Caraval – Stephanie Garber (A Book Recommended By A Friend)
6. Legendary – Stephanie Garber (The Next Book In A Series You’ve Already Started)
7. Finale – Stephanie Garber (An Author You Share A Name With)
8. Red, White, and Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston (A Book Featuring LGBTQ+)
9. Blood Heir – Amelie Wen Zhao (A Book Involving Royalty)
10. Internment – Samira Ahmed (A Book Involving Family
11. Deadly Class Vol. 1 (A Book Featuring a Strong Female Character)
12. Warrior of the Wild – Tricia Levenseller (A Book With A Weapon On The Cover
Those twelve are my main books that I’m hoping to get through this month! I managed to fit in an entire series (Caraval), along with two birthday presents (Warrior of the Wild, and Internment), and two ARCs (Red, White, and Royal Blue, and Blood Heir)!
Reading Rivalry is doing additional criteria this month, so if I have the time, there are five other ARCs that I’m hoping to be able to read this month as well!
- Squad -Mariah MacCarthy (A Book Set In Highschool)
- Lovestruck – Kate Watson (A Book Featuring Mythology)
- The Hummingbird Dagger – Cindy Anstey (A Three Word Title)
- Hearts Made For Breaking – Jen Klein (A Book With a Goodreads Rating Greater Than 3.5)
- Getting Hot With The Scot – Melonie Johnson (Main Character On The Cover)
