May 2022 TBR

Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the May 2022 TBR post!! A monthly post where I talk about all the books that I plan to read in the next month.

I’m actually quite impressed with myself at the moment. I read ALL of the books from my April TBR, bar 160 pages of Edward Cullen’s mindless drivel, which I will finish at the start of May. So I’m feeling good about making a TBR for May that I will actually stick to!! And I need to roll for Bookopoly and my TBR RNG again. (Although I still haven’t entirely completed my plans for February… 🀭)

So, let’s go see the books I plan to read in May!!

May 2022 TBR

challenge books

Bookopoly

My two rolls for May were a 3, and then a 10 (and thankfully no doubles). So my new prompts and books are:

  • Feed scroll (scroll social media for a recommendation): Gallant by V. E. Schwab
  • Go (randomise your TBR): The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

RNG

Honestly, it feels a bit weird doing MORE RNG rolls for my TBR, but here we are. For May I rolled:

  • 364: Sleep Like a Baby by Charlaine Harris
  • 446: Warcross by Marie Lu

And if I’m a very good reader, then I will also read Wildcard by Marie Lu. That’s a big ‘if’ though!!

Pondathon II

The current side quest, Repotting Plants With Amina, is about reading books by Latine authors. I always try and do two of these to unlock the badge achievement, so here are two books on my TBR that I plan to read:

  • Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
  • Fat Chance, Charlie Vega by Crystal Maldonado
Gallant by V. E. Schwab
The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman
Sleep Like a Baby by Charlaine Harris
Warcross by Marie Lu
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
Fat Chance Charlie Vega by Crystal Maldonado

review copies

I got two new review books on 2 May, so I will be making time to read A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting soon, and Lightfall: Shadow of the Bird (maybe after a reread of Lightfall: The Girl and the Galdurian)… And Yesterday Crumb has been waiting for me since… February!!

A Lady's Guide to Fortune-Hunting by Sophie Irwin

A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting by Sophie Irwin

The season is about to begin ― and there’s not a minute to lose.

Kitty Talbot needs a fortune. Or rather, she needs a husband who has a fortune. This is 1818 after all, and only men have the privilege of seeking their own riches.

With only twelve weeks until the bailiffs call, launching herself into London society is the only avenue open to her, and Kitty must use every ounce of cunning and ingenuity she possesses to climb the ranks.

The only one to see through her plans is the worldly Lord Radcliffe and he is determined to thwart her at any cost, especially when it comes to his own brother falling for her charms.

Can Kitty secure a fortune and save her sisters from poverty? There is not a day to lose and no one ― not even a lord ― will stand in her way…

Lightfall: Shadow of the Bird by Tim Probert

In the second installment of the award-winning, critically acclaimed Lightfall series, Bea and Cad continue their quest to stop Kest, the mythic bird who stole the sun.

After a battle that nearly cost them their lives, Bea and Cad awaken in the hidden settlement of the Arsai, mysterious creatures who can glimpse into the future. The Arsai’s vision paints a dire picture for their planet, as the bird Kest Ke Belenus ― now awoken from a restless slumber ― threatens to destroy all the Lights of Irpa. Desperate for a solution, Bea and Cad seek out the help of a water spirit known as Lorgon, whose ancient wisdom may help them find a way to take down Kest and save Irpa from utter destruction.

But when their time with Lorgon presents more questions than answers, Bea and Cad must decide what’s more important… stopping Kest or uncovering the truth.

Lightfall: Shadow of the Bird by Tim Probert
Yesterday Crumb and the Storm in a Teacup by Andy Sagar

Yesterday Crumb and the Storm in a Teacup by Andy Sagar

Yesterday Crumb is no ordinary girl. She was born with fox ears that have cursed her to a lonely life working in the circus and her origins are a complete mystery. But she is about to escape into the adventure of a lifetime when she learns that she’s a strangeling who’s lost her magic.

Taken in by Miss Dumpling the flamboyant Tea Witch, Yesterday is introduced to a magical, walking teashop filled with fantastical customers, a flying teapot turtle called Pascal and powerful spells in every teacup!

Yesterday starts to rediscover her magic and to feel a sense of belonging. But a mysterious figure of darkness is working hard to ensure her new life comes crashing down ― and it all starts with a deadly shard of ice in Yesterday’s heart…

But there’s nothing that can’t be solved with a pot of tea, a slice of cake and a BIG dash of magic!

new books

And finally, we have the shiny, pretty NEW books that I very much want to read immediately!! Of course, with all of the 8 books above, it’s unlikely I will finish them all… Which means that these will either happen first or not at all. Regardless, this is what I want to read now, and not wait for!!

  • Good Girl Complex by Elle Kennedy
  • The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake
  • Social Queue by Kay Kerr
  • A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson

    Happy to hear you managed to read all the april ones!
    My spring tbr is looking a bit badly, with 2 out of 5 read.. the less successful in about a year- to be fair though, I found a new horror serie (4 books) & few review requests that I hadn’t planned πŸ˜‚

    • meeghan

      Unplanned reviews can really throw you. I totally get that!! Good luck with your May TBR!! πŸ₯°

  • Tanaz Masaba

    Oooh this is a great list! Congrats on finishing all your planned books for April, that’s a big achievement πŸ’œ

    I have been reading Edward Cullen’s mindless drivel since January. I should probably DNF it but I do go back to it and now then just for kicks and giggles πŸ˜‚

    As for May, my goal is to finish 4 books, if possible, since I will be travelling overseas half the month. Currently reading Belladonna by Adalyn Grace, next up is Jade City, Legends and Lattes and this ARC I got from Book Sirens but can’t remember the name πŸ˜‚

  • Clo @ Cuppa Clo

    Well done on reading all your April TBR! Hope you enjoy your May books hehe, my tentative TBR for this month is I Love You So Mochi, The Heart Forger and Descendant of the Crane but we’ll see if I get to them. (or maybe my brain decides to pick up a totally different book xD) Also you are stronger than I, can’t believe you read the mindless drivels of Edward Cullen haha

    • meeghan

      I can’t believe I read it either. It was SO BAD. I honestly can’t believe it was published. πŸ’€

Let's chat!
