I like sharing what books I’m planning on reading each month and it also helps me remember which books I want to read. I actually look back at this post periodically throughout the month– I’ve lost counts of the amount of times I’ve double-checked it and realized I had forgotten about a buddy read!!
So, what exactly is on my TBR this month….
This first weekend Sin & Lightning and Orientation Week are on the schedule for buddy reading. I’m running behind on my Hollows re-read, so I need to read Dead Witch Walking and the second one The Good, The Bad, and the Undead. Magic Bites is another monthly group read, just starting this month. Forged by Desire and potentially the fifth book are also on the table as potentials. And Pirate Nemesis is a group read.
So, so many buddy and group reads this month.

ARCs: Go big or go home, yeah? I want to try to read 10 ARCs in May.
Reviews: Uuuuggghhhhh minimum goal? keep the books I need to review under 100. My actual goal? I want to get it down to 50.
Misc: This month I want to listen to more audiobooks and perhaps even start a podcast. I’ve been enjoying playing audiobooks in the background and think podcasts could be a good alternative too.
It would also be great if I could fit more stretching in. I’ve been sitting way too much or laying down for long stretches of time– forgetting to get up. So, stretching and getting up regularly would be key.
