May Reading List

I got this idea from April at Good Books and Good Wine (one of my favorite review blogs — she has such a feisty, funny voice) who got it from Michelle at Galleysmith.

Basically, you make a list of the next 10 books you’re planning to read. Except they both read way more than me, so it’s not necessarily a monthly thing for them. Still, I was thrilled by this because a) I am a fanatical list-maker; b) I am always fascinated by what people are reading or have just read or are planning to read (which is why I just can’t quit you, Goodreads); and c) I have been drowning in books lately. I want to read 100 this year, and at the beginning of March I was totally on track, but then I hardly read at all during April while I was on deadline. I have such issues balancing reading *and* writing. And I’ve gotten approved for so many fantastic e-galleys and my publisher’s sent me galleys and it is the saddest, seeing them pile up and taunt me. Better balance in so many areas — I need it. Anyway, I’m reading THE SPRINGSWEET now, which is wonderful, and then my list for May is:

1. HEMLOCK by Kathleen Peacock (Apocalypsies traveling ARC)

2. MEANT TO BE by Lauren Morrill (Apocalypsies traveling ARC)

3. MY LIFE NEXT DOOR by Huntley Fitzpatrick (Apocalypsies traveling ARC)

4. MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH by Bethany Griffin (ARC, loaned by my friend Caroline)

5. BLACK CITY by Elizabeth Richards (ARC, sent by my publisher)

6. UNSPOKEN by Sarah Rees Brennan (Netgalley)

7. THE BOOK OF BLOOD & SHADOW by Robin Wasserman (Netgalley)

8. KILL ME SOFTLY by Sarah Cross (Netgalley)

9. THE LIST by Siobhain Vivian (recent release)

10. DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth (finally; I have been meaning to read this forever, and my book club’s discussing it in May)

There we have it. Hopefully this will help me step away from Pinterest and pick up a book instead. What’s on your to-read list for May?
