If you read my post yesterday, you’ll know that April was a little off for me on the reading front, and I definitely didn’t get to everything I was hoping to read. Hoping May will be better, and I have a lot of good (I hope) books coming down the pipeline for me. Also, Bout of Books 13 is later this month, and my work schedule is light during that time, so consider this my statement of intention to participate!
First off, a few books I was hoping to get to last month, and now am hoping to get to this month! Number one on this list should come as no surprise – Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell. I WILL finish it hopefully early on this month! Ruby is a book I’ve heard a lot about, and that it’s absolutely, devastatingly heart breaking.
I’ve really been wanting to get to The Martian for awhile now, and think it’ll be right down my alley. I’ve heard it’s funny and exciting, and that the main character is a pure delight – all things I love! Lastly, I’m currently listening to the audiobook of How to Build a Girl, by Caitlin Moran and am only a little ways into it. I’m really liking the narrator so far, and am interested to see where it goes.
I have a few ARCs to get to this month which I’m super excited about, and will talk more about those closer to release dates. Lastly, I’ve been trialing the subscription service Scribd (not an affiliate link), and will see where my whims take me in the audiobook format.
What is the book you’re most looking forward to getting to this month? Will you be participating in Bout of Books 13?
