Welcome back to another TBR. If you can’t tell from the today’s title, May’s TBR is going to be a little different from the past two month’s.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I am a mood reader. I pick up whatever I want. It works for me. Recently, I’ve tried to stick to a TBR and I failed royally. The reason for this wasn’t because I didn’t have time to read any books. I got reading done, I just didn’t read the books I was “supposed to”. My mood reading is part of the reason why. Additionally, my spring semester is coming to a close, which means school life is hectic right now. I’m not inclined to read long, heavy books for review when I’m drained and would rather read Romance.
I’ve debated whether to keep doing TBRs. I have decided that I am going to trek on. Summer break is coming up and I’m going to have a lot more freedom and energy to read books and it’ll help me read books I need to get finished. May is the last month of school before summer break which means projects and finals so I’m giving myself a lot of freedom this month.
SO, What am I reading this month for sure?:
I Believe In a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo // Young Adult ⋆ Contemporary Romance. So far, I’m enjoying this book. It takes place in Orange County (where I live). I love seeing references to places that I know. I Believe In a Thing Called Love is about a Korean teenager who’s flirting failures end up with her in mortifying situations. When a new artsy boy comes to town, she watches her father’s K-dramas to create a formula to falling in love and finally succeeding at flirting. Release Date: May 30th 2017.
How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake // Young Adult ⋆ Contemporary Romance. I literally just started How to Make a Wish. It’s about a bisexual teenager who has a complicated relationship with her unreliable mother. The story focuses on moving on and love. There’s also F/F romance. Release Date: May 2nd 2017.
Haven by Rebekah Weatherspoon // Adult ⋆ Romance. While on a getaway from the city, Claudia’s life is turned upside down. Then she meets Shepard and his dog. I’m a little worried with this one. A lot of people on Twitter have raved about it, but Rebekah’s books are either hit or miss with me. I’m really hoping I like this one. There’s also some tie in with one of her other series, The Fit Trilogy, so I’m interested to see if that has a big role in the story. Publication Date: April 25th 2017.
Yup! That’s it. That is all I’m going to officially commit to. I’m only allowing myself to put down books I’ve already started. There’s a chance I’ll read more (and I honestly will), but I’m trying to lower the bar so I feel less guilty about not being able to do much this month.
