If you missed my Reading Goals blog post, I mentioned that I am once again abandoning “strict” monthly TBR posts—after once again learning they only make reading the selected books feel obligatory. Instead, I will be doing monthly Reading Previews, where I’ll talk about what kinds of books I’m in the mood for, any blog tours or scheduled reviews I have coming up, mention any new books I’m anticipating, and whatever else comes to mind.
So with that introduction out of the way, here is my May Reading Preview.
Books On My Radar
From My Shelves
- The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin
- Dracula by Bram Stoker (Classics Club)
- Poet’s Choice edited by Paul Engle and Joseph Langland
- A Place Called Maine: 24 Authors on the Maine Experience edited by Wesley McNair
- Agatha Christie audiobooks (currently finishing Cards on the Table)
Reviews And Blog Tours
Things have been quiet on the review and blog tour front this year, and may continue to be so this month. My main priority is to climb out of this reading slump, so most of my energy will be going towards actually reading more than one book over the course of May.
Anticipated February Releases
Just one book from my 21 Anticipated Fiction Releases of 2021 list will be released this month:
- While Justice Sleeps by Stacey Abrams
The current Classic Club challenge is to read one book (chosen here) by the end of May. As I listed above, Dracula is the one I’ll be reading.
And that does it for my May Reading Preview. If you are interested in seeing which books I do pick up throughout the month, keep an eye out for my WWW Wednesday posts, follow me on Instagram, or find me on Twitter. I would also love to know which books, reading challenges, or other bookish topics you are excited about this month – feel free to share in the comments.
