April went by at both lightning speed and also like a herd of turtles. Nevertheless, here we are. I dread May. May is stupid-busy. I'm already exhausted. Enough whining. You came here to see what I am reading in May.
If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin - The book club book for May. We are going in a completely different direction this month. At least it's short.
Birthday by Meredith Russo - One of the Reader Harder Challenges is to read a book by a trans or non-binary author. Russo is trans. Also, this YA book comes out in May, so I can read it for my award also.
Works Well With Others by Ross McCammon - Another Read Harder Challenge is to read a business book. The subtitle of this one is: An Outsider's Guide to Shaking Hands, Shutting Up, Handling Jerks, And Other Crucial Skills in Business No One Ever Tells You. That sounds like a business book, right? It's right there in the subtitle.
Sherwood by Megan Spooner - Robin Hood is dead, so Marian is taking over his reign in Sherwood Forest. All the usual suspects are here, the Sheriff, Guy of Gisborne, etc. It promises to be fabulous.
Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell - This is a YA retelling of Les Miserables in space. It's slightly shorter than the original, but still quite long.
That's five. That's plenty, right? It's a busy month.
What do you have planned for May reading?
