May 2023 TBR

I think TBRs might be my favorite posts to write. They are just filled with so much hope and and ambition and excitement for reading. Even though I never finish an entire TBR and often get distracted by mood reads, I just love the feeling of being excited to read books.

Without further ado, here is my list of possibilities for May.

City of Brass

The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty - Last night I wrote a list of all the books on my 50 by 50 list that I have yet to read. Then I ordered them by length. This is the longest book still left on the list. So, I'm starting with that one. I have learned it's never a good idea to leave the longest books for last. Too stressful.


Gunfight at Ingalls: Death of an Outlaw Town by Glenn Shirley - This is the shortest book on my 50 by 50 list. I figure since I'm reading the longest book, I might as well balance it out with a short book or two. I have been obsessed with Ingalls, Oklahoma since high school. I've been to the site a couple of times and read the historical markers. Last time I was there, you could still see the crumbling base of the school house.

Milk and Honey

Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal - Next to the Ingalls book, this is the shortest book left. I am running behind on my 50 by 50 goal, so I hope to catch up.

Mere Mortals

Mere Mortals by Erin Jade Lange - I think this might be the funniest book on the Sequoyah list, so I will probably pick it up next. I would like something funny.


Spearhead: An American Tank Gunenr, His Enemy, And a Collision of Lives In World War II by Adam Makos - This is the Sequoyah book I'm least looking forward to reading. I'm so over WWII stuff. Never been a fan, really. Best to get it out of the way.

Two Good Dogs

Two Good Dogs by Susan Wilson - I only need one more book from my own shelves to be caught up on that goal, so I chose this one. I have been assured that no dog dies in this one. I read the synopsis and it sounds awesome and stars a pit bull. I love that for me!

Ok. There are my books for May. Thoughts?
