May 2019 TBR

This is the first time I will be doing anything like this, and I don’t know specifically if anyone really cares about what I am reading (or plan to read) this month. Maybe you do care! And you have cared! Well here it is, my list of what I want to read this month.

As a note I am trying a new format for this. If you like it, it would be cool to know. I know reading long lists of text can get boring, so if you like it, I’d like to know. Or it can be like my poll that no one answered resulting in me doing whatever I want, that works too.

This is broken down into three lists: Single Novels, Reread Series 1 (Redwall Novels), and Reread Series 2. In future iterations it’ll be Single Novels, Series, and Rereads. (If I have large series I am rereading, then those will get their own list). Here you go.


Single Novel List

  • Nocturna by Maya Motayne
  • Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
  • The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
  • The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
  • We Rule the Night by Claire Eliza Bartlett
  • Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • What the Dickens by Gregory Maguire
  • Summer Island by Kristin Hannah

Some old and some new titles. I’m reading The Darkest Part of the Forest and then probably going to reread the Modern Faerie Tales trilogy all before starting Cruel Prince and Wicked King (even though I have ached for these books for so long) only because they are in the same world. Thus, I am rereading them. Nocturna will be first otherwise, with my friend. As for how the others fill out I’m not sure.

Don’t expect reviews from Animal Farm, What the Dickens, and Summer Island. If I feel so compelled to write them, I will. However as it stands now I’m not sure that I will. Do you guys want me writing reviews for these novels despite them being older books?


Redwall Novels by Brian Jaques reread

  • Salamandastron
  • The Pearls of Lutra
  • The Long Patrol
  • Marlfox
  • The Taggerung
  • Triss
  • Loamhedge
  • Rakkety Tam
  • High Rhulain
  • Eulalia!
  • Doomwyte
  • The Sable Quean
  • The Rogue Crew

This is more of a running list of books I want to get done in 2019 right now. I thought that I’d be able to get through them all in January, then February, then March… April has passed and it is May. We will be lucky to read three this month, but it is here as a reread.

I find it so interesting because I can read them so quick and I adore these books. I suppose it’s because its that I’m rereading them all that is throwing me off.


The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis reread

  • The Magician’s Nephew.
  • The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
  • The Horse and His Boy.
  • Prince Caspian.
  • The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
  • The Silver Chair.
  • The Last Battle.

In all honesty I will probably get all of these read today at work. Or most of them. Expect no individual reviews.


And that’s it folks. All the books I want to read for May. There are so many! I won’t finish them all, you can be sure of that! This list may be updated as we continue on, with poetry collections. Who actually knows, not me or I would have put them here. However poetry reads tend to be quick for me so there is a chance I will get a few collections and then read them.

    1. I have most of my single novel list done, the Narnia books almost done! I will hope to get at least one or two Redwall books done this month. In general, I think it’s going well.

      Do you have reading goals for this month?

      1. Hi ☺️ I try for a book a week on average. I’m reading Jackie French’s Miss Lily series. It’s brilliant historical fiction set in Europe and Australia. Currently reading Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Oh and read The Dry by err cant remember the author. Karen Harper maybe. I gave it to my dad when I finished- really great suspense and very different from my usual reading.
        Have you heard of the term id list? It’s where you make a list of the things that you love reading about. For example I love supernatural themes but not sparkly vampires 😬, art, english and European history, angels, the list goes on. It really helps me identify what I want to read but also helps me write stories that I find interesting. It’s especially helpful when I’m stuck on a story.
