Wait ‘TBR’ you say? Emma plans yet another TBR which she promptly forgets about in the rest of the month? Yes, dear blog readers, you’ve read that right; I am yet again entertaining the notion that setting a TBR will mean I actually feel accountable for my reading and so finish all of the books on the list. Mainly because I have quite a few books checked out from the library – and by ‘quite a few’ I mean that the stack has officially reached the heights of being level with the height of my bed. I should also point out at this stage that my bed has quite a high divan base so when I say that’s quite a stack, that’s really quite a stack.
I have a few books on reserve at the library too so I want to try to clear the stack (or at least make it shorter) before those come in for me. I suppose I should also maybe, just maybe, read some of my own damn books – especially since I’ve bought quite a few in the past couple of months. Maybe May will be a phenomenal reading month? I certainly hope so, goodness knows I could do with getting through the entirety of this TBR even if I am all too aware that that probably won’t happen because I’ll be distracted by something shiny. Still, dream big etc.
Shadows of Self – Brandon Sanderson | The Gap of Time – Jeanette Winterson
Glamour in Glass – Mary Robinette Kowal | Without a Summer – Mary Robinette Kowal
The Dream Thieves – Maggie Stiefvater | Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater [rereads]
The Raven King – Maggie Stiefvater
Moranifesto – Caitlin Moran | The Establishment – Owen Jones
I don’t think 9 books is that big of an ask but we’ll see how it goes this month. I’m actually feeling quite happy with my reading pace lately, it’s just nice and level, and if that could continue through Spring and into this Summer then I would be very, very happy with that. We shall see.
What books are you planning to read this month? Have you read any of the above books or have plans to in the future? Let me know in the comments below!

[…] same page, this is me officially declaring my intentions to participate. As previously mentioned in my May TBR, I have quite a few library books to get through, along with some new releases from the past couple […]
I’m currently reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue :D I was going to make a May TBR too (though I never make them) but kind of forgot to this weekend and I only really had 3 books in mind anyway so think I’ll just leave it, like usual. I hope you enjoy the books you read – especially the raven cycle series!
I find TBRs tricky because as soon as I decide upon them something throws a spanner in the works and I end up reading something else entirely.
Thank you, I’m sure I will enjoy the Raven Cycle! I’m re-reading the first three in preparation for The Raven King which my heart and soul is just not ready for, especially with these re-reads I’ve realised just how much I love the characters and the setting – I don’t want it to be over! I hope you’re enjoying Blue Lily, Lily Blue. :)
