Welcome to my reading list for May!
April was a success for me, I read more than 4 things which is my average, so I’m very pleased with that! My wrap up is here if you missed it, otherwise, on to the books I’ll be reading next!
Spellslinger – by Sebastian De Castell
I have high hopes for this. Thank you Allen & Unwin for sending it my way! It’s a YA fantasy, written by an author that’s produced adult fantasy before, so I am very excited at the shenanigans this book has to offer!
A Court of Mist and Fury (book 2) – by Sarah J Maas
Yes, I know, I haven’t read this yet. What am I doing with my life, right? If you know me, you’ll know that I hated the first book ACOTAR, so I’ve avoided picking up the sequel. My lovely friend Dzung lent this to me, so now it’s unavoidable, hehe. I’ve heard ACOMAF is leagues better than book 1, so I’m hoping I at least like it when I pick it up!
Fool’s Quest (book 2) – by Robin Hobb
I love her books. I read book 1 last month and I’m so thrilled to be reading her writing again! If you don’t know where to start with Hobb, pick up Assassin’s Apprentice, but be aware that the plots aren’t fast-paced. They’re a slow-burning, world building masterpiece and I adore them. Even if I don’t like Fitz all that much, he’s just kind of an idiot but I enjoy reading his stories. I can’t tell you a lot about this book without spoilers, but click the title if you want a synopsis.
The Hatching – by Ezekiel Boone
This is a horror / apocalyptic novel with spiders in it. That’s all I know, it’s all I want to know, I’m probably going to be terrified but end up enjoying it anyway. We’ll see how I fare. I have book 2 waiting to be read after this so keep an eye out for my thoughts.
That’s everything I have planned for this month! I also have Wintersong, History Is All You Left Me, and The Final Empire waiting for me, but no promises on those! [Sobs at massive TBR.]
Have you read any of these? Did you enjoy ACOMAF, did you dislike it? Will you pick up ACOWAR? I’m betting a HEAP of people have already read it by the time I post this.
No spoilers please. ❤ Thank you for reading!
