Hello everyone, long time no see! In my last post I mentioned that things were a bit hectic since I moved and started my new job and while everything is not exactly under control yet, it’s finally less chaotic and stressful than it was in March. I still haven’t been able to read a lot in the last few weeks but I really want to discuss books with all of you and I definitely don’t want to miss out on the Wyrd & Wonder fun so I’m hopeful I can start posting again on the blog!
In the last two months, I have only read three books. It is not a lot but it is still better than none especially since I have enjoyed them quite a bit.
- A Desolation Called Peace by Arkady Martine ★★★★
- Doors of Eden by Adrian Tchaikovsky ★★★☆
- Piranesi by Susanna Clarke ★★★★☆
My review of A Desolation Called Peace will be up in a few days and I’m considering writing mini reviews of Doors of Eden and Piranesi which I both read for my BSFA project (that is going very slowly but that I am determined to complete one day 🤣).
May Reading Plans
Since I’m still struggling to focus on reading more than 30 pages at a time (I have to do a lot of reading for work so my braincells are usually fried when I want to sit down and read for pleasure), I’m not going to be very ambitious at all with my TBR. I would like to read three or four books in May, if I read more it will be great, if not, at least I will still be able to have fun and read as many Wyrd & Wonder posts as possible! 😀
Here are the books that I would like to read in May:
(Light of Impossible Stars is a science fiction book but I’m currently reading it for my BSFA project!)
I’m super excited to finally read The City We Became by Jemisin, it was one of my most anticipated releases last year and I’m still looking forward to reading it! A Broken Darkness is the sequel to Beneath the Rising, a horror/urban fantasy book that I read during last year’s edition of Wyrd & Wonder. I had a great time with the first book and I’m looking forward to reading the sequel! 😀
Are you participating in Wyrd & Wonder? What are the books you are the most excited to read in May? 😀
