Goals & New Releases
May is a huge book month for me on the strength of two books alone:
The Last Star and The City of Mirrors both release on the 24th and I have been reading The Passage Trilogy since it’s first book in 2010 so the thought of finishing out two trilogies this month! I’m excited! Can’t help it!
My plan was to start getting better organized and get control of things, including books. I realized I have nine (9!) books that I’ve amassed over the last couple of months since Christmas (thank you sales and birthday gifts 🙂 ) that I haven’t even started yet. I had set the goal of reading those before the 24th but yeah, I already blew that…
Bloodline is a Star Wars Novel centering on Leia that is supposed to give up some information on her mental state (and other things) leading up to the current movie timeline. Queen of Hearts is about the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland! Both come out tomorrow May 3rd and for both of them I just couldn’t help myself!
And of several other great sounding new releases this month I’m looking forward to picking up:
Every Exquisite Thing (May 31st) is the new Matthew Quick and I always enjoy his writings. Outrun the Moon (May 24th) is the story of a headstrong young girl during the 1906 earthquake in San Francisco which is an event that always fascinated me.
Not to mention the Owlcrate box this month is steampunk book and theme!
So I’m going to try to keep my goal and do a one for one read. A book that’s been waiting and then a new release and see how that goes for me. Plus so many movies this month: Captain America, The Nice Guys, High-Rise, The Family Fang, X-Men and Through the Looking Glass just to name some.
Usually I dread going into summer. It’s my least favorite time of year. (I’m a Fall/Winter kind of girl myself). At least this May I’ll be entertained! And hopefully at the end of it feel slightly more organized…
