May 2015 TBR

It's time to think about what I plan to read in May. Since I haven't really read anything more taxing than Bookmarks magazine in the last week, I probably shouldn't be too ambitious. But I probably will, anyway.

A Wizard of Earthsea

A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. LeGuin - This is the library book club's book of the month. It's not our usual fare, but we're reading it in conjunction with Northeastern State University's Big Read. I'm currently working on this, so it won't be a big rush at the end to get it read.


Dawn by Octavia Butler - This is my home book club's book of the month. It's pretty hard core science fiction, so we'll see how this goes over. I'm going to wait until I finish the library book club book before I start this one. I better get on it, though. The meeting is in 2 weeks.

Year of Reading Dangerously

The Year of Reading Dangerously by Andy Miller - The subtitle of this one is "How Fifty Great Books (and Two Not-so-great Ones) Saved My Life. It's a book about books! This could get me out of my reading slump. I love these things.

I Refuse

I Refuse by Per Petersen - I have read and liked the other books that have been translated from the Norwegian by this author. On the other hand, I don't know if I'll be up for this one when it comes in. We'll see.


Seveneves by Neal Stephenson - Clocking in at over a thousand pages, this may be pushing the boundaries of what I can actually accomplish this month, but I'll put it here just in case.

That's five. Considering how my reading has gone recently, I think that's probably overly ambitious. But I like to walk on the wild side.

What's on your May reading list?
