As I selected the books for this list, I’d finished reading 17 of the 20 books I picked for my May TBR, plus 5 wildcards. And here I was thinking that I suck at to read lists. Clearly I just need to give myself a bit of leeway and public accountability.
That being said, here we go! I’ve already kind of started on this, as of May 31st, because I was feeling just a bit too constrained by my May list.
The City, Stella Gemmell.(I know. I’m late.)
- The Philosopher Kings, Jo Walton. (I’m gonna get to this one on time! I am!)
- Knight’s Shadow, Sebastien de Castell. (Only a little late!)
The Girl at Midnight, Melissa Grey. Joan of Arc, Helen Castor.
- Named of the Dragon, Susanna Kearsley.
- Heartless, Gail Carriger.
- Timeless, Gail Carriger.
Ring of Bright Water, Gavin Maxwell. The Compatibility Gene, Daniel M. Davis.
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Becky Albertalli. Fire, Kristin Cashore.
- The Wrath and the Dawn, Renee Ahdieh. (Eee!)
Ancillary Justice, Ann Leckie.(I know, I know.)
- Dreams of Gods and Monsters, Laini Taylor. (It’s about time.)
Rereads (including books counting as owned-unread because of ebook duplicates)
- Abhorsen, Garth Nix.
After the Golden Age, Carrie Vaughn. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Susanna Clarke. Roadside Picnic, Arkady & Boris Strugatsky.(Book club read! My suggestion, so I figured I’d better refamiliarise.) Voices, Ursula Le Guin.
Catching up (from last month’s TBR)
A Darker Shade of Magic, V.E. Schwab.
- The Winter Sea, Susanna Kearsley.
- Of Noble Family, Mary Robinette Kowal.
The Hawley Book of the Dead, Chrysler Szarlan.(ARC.)
- The Killing Kind, Chris F. Holm. (ARC.)
Ancillary Sword, Ann Leckie.(Owned.)
As before, graphic novels don’t count, because I tend to read them in one sitting anyway. If I finish fifteen of the non-wildcard books and I’ve run out of wildcards, I’ll probably let myself have some more. I didn’t last month, but that’s because I reached 15/20 quite near the end of the month. With a long trip to Belgium and then to Canada in my future for June, maybe I’ll read more.
