Moody May — No TBR?!

Hello, lovelies! I know I usually wait until the first of the month to post my TBR, but May is a special case because, well… I’m not creating one! I know, I’ll wait for you all to overcome your shock…

Seriously, though, my friend Kathy @ Books and Munches has created an awesome challenge for us this month: Moody May! The idea is to avoid creating a TBR at all, and to only read the books that the mood genuinely strikes you for.

Since I’m not allowed to make a TBR, she suggested that I direct you guys to my full owned TBR post here (being updated weekly), as well as creating a full list of my unread ARCs! I’m not going to include any backlist ARCs, just future releases.

Here is my request for you guys…

Pick one ARC from this list and one (non-ARC) TBR title from the full TBR list that you think I should read in Moody May, and let me know in the comments, please!

  1. This is a great idea! If I didn’t have so many ARCs to read in May, I would try this. My picks are LIFEL1k3 ARC and The Coldest Girl in Coldtown backlist! Have fun:-)


      1. Haha yup that saved me from crying alone in a corner! JK hahaha ❤ I might host a readalong in June…but I tend to be busy in the summers so maybe nooooot LOL


  2. Ohhhh that’s so hard. You have so many amazing ARCs at the moment! I think ARCwise I’dbe tempted to say either the Song of Blood and Bone or Anger is a Gift. But then I know you also love the Stalking Jack the Ripper series sooooo….

    Non-ARCs: The Bone Witch or Exit West would be great for Asian-Pacific Heritage Month,


  3. Ohmygod. To Be Honest and What If It’s Us. ❤
    And you have to finish Children of Blood and Bone at some point!

    Like. I hope you get yourself in the mood for those ones.
    You HAVE to be in the mood for those. :')


  4. I really want you to read Escaping From Houdini but I also really want to know your thoughts on Lifeik3! For a physical book, you should read Leah On The Offbeat because it’s a new release and I’d also be pretty interested to know your opinions on it too!
