Lately I’ve been all over the place with my reading and in May I haven’t completely followed my TBR, but I still like making these posts. It gives me ideas and I do read at least few of the books I talk about when I think of my TBR, haha. There are still 10 days in the month, but I already have a list of books I want to read. So keep on reading for my June TBR!
Honey Girl – Morgan Rogers
I’ve been curious about Honey Girl since it released a few months ago. The cover is stunning and the story sounds amazing. I’ve heard it’s not the typical romance most people are expecting, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing at all. I have a feeling Honey Girl is going to be so much more.
Shipped – Angie Hockman
I recently mentioned I wanted to read more romance and then a bookstagrammer I follow announced she was starting a romance book club. Talk about timing! Shipped will be our first read and I’m excited. It seems like the perfect summer book.
Glass Sword – Victoria Aveyard
A group on Instagram is reading the Red Queen series together. Seeing how I’ve only read the first book and really need to complete the series I decided to join. In May we’re wrapping up Red Queen which means we’ll be reading Glass Sword in June!
Six Stories – Matt Wesolowski
Six Stories is actually a series I’m not familiar with, but some friends are. A few of The Write Reads gang have created a list of series we want to read and will randomly pick them as we go along. We’re starting with Six Stories. From what I gather it’s a series about a podcast that are trying to solve murders. I’ve been enjoying this genre more, so I’m definitely curious.
I have a feeling I’m missing a couple, but I can always add those to my own list when I find out more. These are definitely 5 I’m on this month!
Spark to Shadow – Atima Kim
All I needed to hear was witches and I was sold! Spark to Shadow sounds really interesting and a lot of early reviews have been really positive. I actually just received my copy for the tour right before typing this post.
Instructions for Dancing – Nicola Yoon
Nicola Yoon is an author I really enjoy and she writes books that really hit you in all the feels. I have a feeling Instructions for Dancing is going to be the same way. Our main character doesn’t believe in love anymore, but I have a feeling that’s going to change.
Down with This Ship – Katie Kingman
As a fan of many fandoms and “ships” in the bookish world I’ve been excited for this book since I heard about it. The main character writes fan fiction about a show and when she wins a constant she becomes really popular. I have a feeling this is going to be so much fun. Especially because it includes snippets from the fanfic, text messages and emails. All of the elements I love in books.
It Goes Like This – Miel Moreland
It’s almost summer and that means I end up reading more contemporary books. It Goes Like This is going to be one of those! I have a feeling I’m going to fly through this story. A group of best friends started a band, but ends up falling apart. A charity show for the town their from brings them back together. This is going to be interesting.
Blood Like Magic – Liselle Sambury
First of all, look at this stunning cover!! Blood Like Magic has our main character who is witch given a task no one should or would want to complete. She must sacrifice her first love to save her family’s magic. That sounds so heartbreaking. I have a feeling once I pick this one up I won’t be able to put it down.
I definitely have more than one buddyread and end up with a lot more than I plan, haha. I know for sure this one will be read though!
King of Scars – Leigh Bardugo
Isabelle and I decided to do a re-read of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. We’re almost done with that. So we plan on continuing with King of Scars and then on to Rule of Wolves. I started King of Scars and got pretty far, but I forgot a lot of Six of Crows. So I’m going to love it even more starting it again.
As I’m typing this there are a few books I definitely want to read soon. A couple are June releases, but I’ve preordered them. Still definitely so many books so little time!
Grace and Glory – Jennifer L. Armentrout
Grace and Glory is a June release, but I have my copy ordered. Jennifer L. Armentrout is a go to author for me and I’ve really enjoyed the first two books in this trilogy. Especially the last line of the second book has made me anxiously awaiting Grace and Glory.
Playing the Palace – Paul Rudnick
I stumbled upon Playing the Palace not too long ago. It releases next week and is suggested as a book for lovers of Red, White and Royal Blue. That’s one of my favorites, so I need Playing the Palace.
My Contrary Mary – Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows
After completing the trilogy with famous women named Jane in history, these authors are coming together again this time for a set of famous women named Mary. My Contrary Mary is the first in this trilogy and is also releasing in June. I loved the previous trilogy and how they twist history, so I have high expectations for this one!
How to Make Friends with the Dark – Kathleen Glasgow
This has been on my shelf since it released in 2019. I know this book sounds emotional, but I have a feeling it’ll be amazing.
The Boyband Murder Mystery – Ava Eldred
As a big fan of boybands as a teenager this title caught my attention. I completely understand the love to these groups and the loyalty. I don’t think I ever would’ve thought of trying to solve a murder if one was accused of being a murderer. The Boyband Murder Mystery sounds like it’ll be a fun read!
Okay, these are the books I really hope to read next month. I’m sure a lot will change, but if I read at least a few of these I’ll be very happy! Have you read any of these? Let me know what you thought it you have! What do you hope to read next month? I’d love to hear from you.
