May wrap up and #Junetbr plans.

Did pretty good with my ambitious #maytbr read about half the shelf plus 4 library books and 2 audiobooks for a total of 20 books in May.

DGRachel Great job! 6mo
TheLibrarian Great job! 👍🏻 6mo
BookNAround Nice job! I've never thought to get a monthly picture at the beginning and then compare it to the end. I'm afraid it would be a big visual failure. LOL! 6mo

#maytbr update. Didn‘t get to 2 of them. I DNFed 2
Of them (the sticker counts for both of them). I read 2 of them and I‘m still reading the iron traitor.

Wherever She Goes | K.L. Armstrong

I‘ve been a big fan of Armstrong‘s writing for over a decade- across multiple genres. She writes fast-paced, twisting plots with realistic and dynamic characters! I had to make up for lost reading time over the weekend, so I started- and finished- this #NetGalley #OneSittingRead this afternoon! Set in a fictional #Chicago suburb, I couldn‘t put this one down!!! And I finished my #MayTBR a few days early- despite the weekend!! 👏👏👏

This is the current state of my #MayTBR. It looks eerily like it did on May 1 - because I‘ve only finished one book so far this month. So I am gonna jump into #24b4monday to see if I can‘t knock a couple of these guys out this weekend. I won‘t get 24 hours in but I‘m gonna read as much as I can!

I‘m steadily making my way through these four books during the lovely month of May (and oh! how it‘s been lovely)! I have a few other books I‘d also like to read, hovering just out of sight, but my focus will be on these four until one or two are wrapped up.

May #tbr in my #bulletjournal #bujo. These are all in progress, so my goal is basically finish what I've started and then read whatever I want! I've already finished one! ☑️ #maytbr
(I wrote everything myself, but the stickers are from Planningwithkay on Etsy!)

wanderinglynn Beautiful journal! 💜 7mo
bewareofwords 😱 Your journal is gorgeous! 7mo

This is a tentative #MayTBR, but I don't know the next #EclecticReaders pick or if I would rather do some more rereads and series reads. I'm okay with just doing what I feel like, and #ItsGonnaBeMe.

April showers didn‘t do much to dent my TBR so my #MayTBR is a bunch of leftovers from April, four more in my never-ending quest to #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks, my #GirlyBookClub book, the #BOTMbuddyread and an audio for the #HugoNuts buddy read. Oh, and apparently a pug that was quite sure I wanted to give her treats more than I wanted to snap this photo.

BookNAround Surely such a cute photobomber deserves a treat. 😉 7mo
janeycanuck @BookNAround of course! I can‘t say no to that face 😊 7mo

jillrhudy Uprooted is spectacular. I ended up adoring the Hangman‘s Daughter series but I thought it improved massively a few books in. The first few aren‘t that great (maybe this is just the translations?) 7mo
BarbaraJean @jillrhudy I‘m so looking forward to Uprooted! I‘ve seen similar comments in reviews of Hangman‘s Daughter. Good to know later ones improve! 7mo
