Goodreads: May to-read list




Amongst my ever increasing pile of ARCs, I thought I’d pick out a few books in particular this month that I’m planning on reading. As I’ve mentioned a few times, I have final exams this month so I won’t be reading as much I’d like to, just in the evenings to chill out after a day full of revision. I’m hoping to get three books read and reviewed in May in spite of this.

Classic of the Month: To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
I read this book years and years ago at school and absolutely hated it. I’m really sorry about that, because everyone I know seems to absolutely adore everything about it, so I thought I’d give it another go in the wake of Harper Lee’s passing a few months back. I finally got hold of a used copy on amazon for a few pounds so I have absolutely no excuse to try again and see if I can learn to love this respected classic.

Arc of the Month: Hex – Thomas Olde Heuvelt
I received this beautiful hardbacked ARC from Hodder and Stoughton at the beginning of April. This book has already been released, as of 28th April, but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet so thought I’d get stuck in this month and do my review as close to the release date as I possibly can. The whole concept of this book really excites me as it promises something along the lines of Stephen King, which is absolutely fantastic as far as I’m concerned. Very excited to give this one a go!

Book of the Month: Reading Lolita in Tehran – Azar Nafisi
I’ve had this book on my reading list for what feels like absolutely months and I even included it on my what I’m reading this Spring post back in March. I’m finally going to stick to it and give it a read this month and I’m really, really excited to do so.

  1. I'll be finishing off The Book Thief and moving on to Lady Midnight, from thereon in I haven't got a clue, I've been eyeing up The Shadow of the Wind, The Night Circus and The Kite Runner for a while now...although I have never read To Kill a Mockingbird so you might just have swung me a curve ball...have you read any of the above?
