Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Thus far this year, I’ve read a lot of books and I think I’m ready to pump the brakes. As exciting as it is, I don’t want to get burnt-out so my focus is going to be shifted a little bit. Rather than focusing on books I’ve never read, I want to return to some old favorites. Hopefully, it’ll help me avoid a slump if it does come especially after the multiple 3-star reads I had last month.
With that being said, I do want to tick at least one book off my 20 books to read in the 2020 list. Other than that, I’m either going to be rereading old favorites or read books for an upcoming post. I have a post coming in June…possibly July but I’ve been working hard on it. Anyways, let’s get into the books I want to read in May!
1. Truth or Beard (Winston Brothers #1)
Last year, I read my first book by Penny Reid and hated it. However, I do want to give her another chance starting with this series. I know a lot of bloggers and booktubers enjoy it so I figured why not? Also, I’ve been seeing Shanah loving these series so it gave me hope lol. Either way, this book sounds like it’s going to be something I’ll enjoy.
2. Foolish Hearts
No list of old favorites would be complete without an Emma Mills book. Of all the books of hers I’ve read, Foolish Hearts is easily my top favorite. Since it’s “god-tier” to me, it’s only right I’d reread it again. This time is going to be my third time rereading it and I’m still super excited. This book is just so delightful and makes me so happy. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of it lol.
3. Kill The Boy Band
I’m not sure if you’re sensing a theme here but I love books about boybands. Last year, I read Kill The Boy Band and enjoyed it. Last month, I read Goldy Moldavksy’s other book and I want to revisit her debut. This time, I might listen to it on audio since I read it physically the previous time. Either way, I’m hyped to reread this book since I think Goldy’s coming out with a new book in September.
4. Intercepted (Playbook #1)
This is arguably my favorite romance book of all-time and I’ve never re-read it. I love Alexa Martin so much and I’ve been wanting to reread this book forever. I want to see if it’s still one of my favorites. Speaking of my favorite things, this is an NFL romance and with the NFL possibly being pushed back, it’ll give me my sports fill. I doubt I’ll go the audiobook route for this one as I enjoy the physical book.
5. Kristy’s Great Idea
A few months ago, I did an analysis of my childhood favorites but one thing I didn’t mention is I’ve had this graphic novel for over 10 years and haven’t read it. Since my library has all the ones currently published, what better time than now? I don’t know much it’ll differ from the original source but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. Either way, I’m super excited to read it.
I’m sure some of my library holds will come off but these five are the books I’m planning on reading in May. Thankfully, almost all of them are short so they should be pretty low-pressure which is what I need. Considering I’m almost halfway done with my Goodreads challenge though, I don’t have much to worry about. Lol
