I am joining Imyril and some other wonderful bloggers on a journey through fantasy land this May as part of Wyrd and Wonder. If you would like to sign up or find out more details about this blogging event, please check out this post.
It’s still April 30th night in US but it is already May 1st in all the other parts of the world so I am posting this anyway.
Coming to the books that I am planning to read in May, I will choose books from this pile here –
I am definitely taking part in the Trail of Lightning readalong that is being hosted. I have started reading this book and I am loving it. I am also thinking of picking up its sequel Storm of Locusts this month. I met Rebecca Roanhorse last year at Worldcon and chatted with her about her books and also got it signed from her. She also won a Hugo award last year and her speech was amazing. I also saw her talk in a panel on apocalypse but had no idea her books were set in an apocalyptic world. Thanks to Wyrd and Wonder, I will finally get to read this series in May.
I will also read Good Omens in May since there is a TV series adaptation of this book starting in May. I would love to watch the series but I need to finish the book before that.
After reading Trail of Lightning and Good Omens, if I still have some time left in May, I plan to read a young adult fantasy novel like The Cruel Prince and its sequel, The Wicked King or To Kill a Kingdom which is a standalone. I also have The Lie Tree which has been on my TBR for way too long.
I also want to read Malice and Red Sister this month, if I feel like it. I would love to binge read a series so I will pick one of these two completed series. It has been so long since I read all the books in a series back to back.
I might do a try a chapter tag and pick a book from this pile. Hoping that I get through at least 3-4 books from this selection.
Are you taking part in Wyrd and Wonder? If so, are you reading any of these books that I am reading?
