I’m still struggling to figure out what I’m in the mood to read. Being a mood reader is HARD sometimes! I’m also struggling to keep my fantasy and science fiction slump away…. and it’s not working. Baby steps. I’m going to set a small and loose TBR this month and just try to go with the flow. April and May will be heavy months for ARC’s and new releases so I want to leave this month open to read whatever I feel in the mood for. Here are a few of the books I’m considering:
I’m currently in the middle of Red Sister by Mark Lawrence. I’m splitting this up between the audiobook and physically reading. I struggled SO HARD with this in the beginning. I don’t know if it was just the writing or still me struggling with fantasy. Now I’m around the 200 page mark and it’s getting better. I will also be reading Wicked Saints by Emily A Duncan this month as I’m a part of the blog tour! My tentative date for the tour stop is March 26th. So check back towards the end of the month!
Another ARC that I’ll be reading this month is The Binding by Bridget Collins. All I know about this one is that it has to do with a librarian/book binder who binds memories into books. Any memory you want to forget can be bound into the pages of a book and forgotten. Sounds interesting! And another book that I think I’ll be getting to this month is The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. It will actually be a buddy read with Joe from J.W. Martin – storeys of stories! We’ve both got a busy schedule this month though so I’m not sure it’s going to happen.
These last two I’m not sure that I’ll get to this month but I would like to get to them ASAP! The Missing Season by Gillian French is an ARC that doesn’t publish until May, but it sounds so interesting that I can’t stop thinking about it! Missing kids, a legend of a monster called The Mumbler, and a halloween prank war – sounds creepy and promising! And next is Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman. I LOVE Piera Forde and she loves this book, so I hope I will too!
Those are the books sitting on my immediate TBR shelf. I’m really not sure which of these I’ll actually be getting to though. I’ll let my mood carry me to the books it wants me to read! What do you hope to read this month?
Until next time, happy reading!
