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.
