Happy May 4th!
Some of you are probably thinking: “What’s May 4th? Is it a holiday or something?” And the answers is both Yes and No. It’s not an official bank holiday or anything but it is Star Wars Day. Which, to be honest, should totally be a bank holiday where everyone gets to go home and bingewatch the movies. This year it’s even more special because Star Wars is celebrating its 40th anniversary. So happy Star Wars Day and “May the fourth be with you” (Get it? Fourth / force ? …. No, I’m not making this up. This is an actual thing).
ANYWAY, enough about Star Wars right now. Here’s my TBR for this month.
As I told you in my April Wrap-up, I didn’t manage to read all five books. Rather than picking new books for May, I’ve decided to read the ones I didn’t get to last month and three new ones.
Goodbye Days: This one is a very contemporary read. It’s about Carver, who causes a car accident by sending a text to one of his friends. Three of his friends die in the car crash. I’m expecting this one to make me feel like an emotional train-wreck but that’s okay. I actually prefer those kind of books. Sadistic? Perhaps.
Stargazing for Beginners: Meg juggles taking care of her baby sister while trying to win a competition to get a chance to go NASA headquarters. Oh, and her rival is a boy named Ed. I’m sensing a cute romance. And even if it doesn’t, it’s got NASA. That’s all I need.
Thirteen Reasons Why: I’ve been wanting to read this ever since I finished watching the show. And I’m reading it this month because I want to compare the book with the show so I’m not going to wait six months to do it.
Radio Silence: I’ve talked about this one before. “When Frances meets Aled, the shy genius behind her favourite podcast, she discovers a new freedom. He unlocks the door to Real Frances and for the first time she experiences true friendship, unafraid to be herself. Then the podcast goes viral and the fragile trust between them is broken.” I mainly want to read it because 1) I’ve heard great things about it 2) it’s diverse and 3) the main characters have a platonic relationship. I know. It’s like a unicorn book.
I’ll Give You the Sun: I’ve tried reading this one two or three times by now, but something else always comes up and I have to put it to the side. This probably isn’t a good sign, but I’ve read so many great reviews I at least want to try and finish it.
