April & May TBR | Third Bi-Monthly Edition

Hello again, dear readers. I hope that you all had a special day yesterday, celebrating Jesus’s resurrection and that this post finds you in good health and enjoying some warm(ish) spring sunshine. After having a lovely break from blogging last week, I am excited to share a couple of bookish posts with you all this week!

Due to limited time (my research project, depressing literature book, chemistry and math are all clamoring for my attention), I am not going spend more time introducing this tbr. 😀

*Note – I have not read these books and therefore do not know if I would recommend them to you

Results of February/March TBR

Sadly, I didn’t get to all the books on my technical tbr, but I did read a handful that were not on there, as well as five from my tbr. I had a decent reading month overall, as my mini-reviews (Feb. & March) demonstrate, but I am hopeful I will check off more of the books on my tbr in the next couple of months. 🙂

Read: Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo || This is My America – Kim Johnson || Chlorine Sky – Mahogany L. Browne || A Portrait of Loyalty – Roseanna M. White || Hidden Current – Sharon Hinck || You Have A Match – Emma Lord

Did Not Finish: Charming As A Verb – Ben Philippe || I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter – Erika L. Sánchez || Once Upon a Quinceañera – Monica Gomez-Hira || Fat Chance, Charlie Vega – Crystal Maldonado

April/May Official TBR

The Book of Lost Names – Kristen Harmel

I am looking forward to this book, but I do not have incredibly high expectations. I will say though, that after having it on hold from the library system in my state for literal months (the only other book that has rivaled it on hold time was Michelle Obama’s book Becoming, a few years ago), I really hope it is an enjoyable read.

The Gilded Ones – Namina Forna

A fierce, female-centered fantasy book with a beautiful cover and glowing reviews…how could I not give it a shot?!

A Pho Love Story – Loan Le

If a book has anything to do with food, cooking and/or family restaurants, chances are I will at least give them an opportunity to impress me.

So despite my hit-or-miss history with YA contemporary novel, I eagerly anticipate reading A Pho Love Story.

The Thief of Blackfriars Lane – Michelle Griep

This is one book that I have been looking forward to for months (it even made it on my exciting releases list for January-June).

The blurb just sounds so intriguing: Victorian London, Robin Hood themes and a strong female MC. 😀

A Castaway in Cornwall – Julie Klassen

Klassen is one of my favorite authors, her books are always interesting and long, as well as well-developed. Her latest book has been sitting on my shelf for the past couple of months, and I am hopeful that I will finally get to it in the next few weeks.

When Twilight Breaks – Sarah Sundin

Sundin’s WW2 novels are always exceptional, and I have no doubt that this one will be as well. I am quite excited to dive into this story.

Like Home – Louisa Onomé

I received this book in the mail (does anything beat book mail?!) after winning it in a giveaway. I have not had a chance to read it yet, but it seems like an interesting YA book. 😀

Red, White and Whole – Rajani LaRocca

This seems like an interesting book and the fact that it is an #ownvoices story told in verse makes it all the more intriguing.

Lady Bird Johnson: Hiding in Plain Sight – Julia Sweig

I have been really enjoying the podcast companion to this biography, and I am quite excited to learn more about Lady Bird, in the written form.

Are any of these books ones that you have read, or want to read? How do you feel about non-fiction books? (Love them, hate them, don’t mind them?) What is something that you have been enjoying lately? (Food, book, music, movie etc.)

  1. I’ve seen Like Home around a lot, and that’s amazing how you won it in a giveaway! Red, White, and Whole is beautifully written and will play with your emotions 😌 The Gilded Ones and A Pho Love Story are also ones that I can hopefully get to! Gosh I’m really trying to read more nonfiction haha, I’ve mentally signed up to do at least one per month and I’m actually following through on that quite well. Nonfiction is definitely very interesting when it’s a topic you want to learn more about! As for something I’m going to be enjoying..well, Shadow and Bone, here I COME.
