May TBR

Hello everyone! This is my May TBR. Especially when on my bedside table with the dust jackets removed, this is definitely a month of blue-black-white books! Aesthetically pleasing and, hopefully, enjoyable!

  • Saphriblau by Kerstin Gier. This is book #2 in the YA Fantasy series Edelstein. In English it is called “Sapphire Blue” and the series is called the “Precious Stone” Trilogy. I will be reading this for my German tutor.
  • Beneath Wandering Stars by Ashlee Cowles. There is no particular reason I need to read this YA Contemporary, I’m just really excited for it, so I decided to replace a randomly selected book from my TBR Jar with this one!
  • Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I have already started reading this book, hence why it is on my TBR! I’m not yet sure whether to consider it YA, NA or Adult, but it’s definitely Fantasy!
  • Persuasion by Jane Austen. This will be off of my 2017 Challenge TBR and hopefully help me finally get over my Jane Austen prejudice thingy that isn’t really a prejudice 😀
  • Night Owls by Jenn Bennett. This will be a reread off of my “Books to Reread in 2017” list. I love it the first time and I will hopefully continue to love it (or love it more) the second! It’s one of the few contemporaries on my list to reread.
  • Macbeth by William Shakespeare. I have to read this for English class and I have already started. Unfortunately, we are reading it at a HORRIFICALLY slow pace. Hopefully that will speed up soon.

What books are you planning to read this month? I would obviously add ACOWAR to this list, but I will be reading that anyway so no need! These are mostly quite short books (with the notable exceptions of Nevernight which is about average length- unless I audiobook it- and Saphirblau which is above-average AND German) so hopefully I should be able to get this TBR read, even if some books slow me down. Happy reading, Keira x.

  1. Persuasion is my favourite Austen book! I hope you’ll moderately enjoy it at least hahaha

      Hopefully! I do actually like all of the Jane Austen I’ve watched (TV/Movie/Play); I could just never get past the first line of Pride and Prejudice as a 9 year old. I thought it quite old-fashioned and presumptive 😀

      1. I hear you. I struggle with classics in general to be honest.

          I adored Jane Eyre which was written in a similar time period, so that gives me some hope for classics. Wuthering Heights on the other hand… how many Catherines can you get in one book!

          1. It took too long until Mr Rochester showed up in Jane Eyre, so I got really, really frustrated with the beginning hahaha

              Yeah, I distinctly remember taking about a month to get through the first 60 pages and then reading the rest of the book in a week 😀
