I’m really, really late to signing up for this event. I’ve participated a few times in this event before, and thought that I’d do my best to participate this time as well. I’m going out of town on Thursday until late Saturday so I’m not sure how realistic it is that I’ll get to read a ton of books. I wanted to join because I have a lot of books that I want to read and I thought this would be a good opportunity to get as many knocked out as possible. I’m only planning on reading 3-5 books total. Though this might change, here are some of my options:
This one has been on my radar for quite awhile now. The cover is absolutely gorgeous. I also think it’s pretty awesome that it sort of is a Cinderella retelling. I can’t wait to dive into this!
I’m actually pretty deep into this one, and will likely finish it by tomorrow. How beautiful is this new cover though? This book has been out for nearly two years now, but for whatever reason I’m just now getting around to reading it. This book is so freaking good so far. I can’t stress enough how much I adore Simon and Baz.
This is a May release that I have on my Kindle currently that I can’t wait to read. It looks like such an amazing read, and it isn’t all that long either. So I’m hoping that I’ll be able to read this one within the next couple of days.
This is yet another May release that I have on my Kindle but haven’t had the opportunity to read yet. The concept sounds extremely interesting and I can’t wait to read it. Hopefully I’ll be able to get around to reading it.
I’m honestly not sure if this book is totally my thing. The only reason that I’m including this is that I’ve heard positive things about it and it was optioned to become a TV show. It’s also rather short, so I think I’ll be able to read it rather quickly which is exactly the type of books that I need right now.
So this is my sign up post and my list of goals and books that I want to read. Hopefully next time around, I’ll remember to sign up earlier so I’ll be able to have a little more time. Anyway, my list consisted of a lot of May eARCS. I also might have to take a couple of physical books with me on my trip but I’m not sure what those will be yet. I plan on updating my progress and final results in another post.
