Another month and another batch of books that I’m silly excited to read. (Yes, I know I’m a nerd) Last month’s plan was ambitious and May’s plan is even more so.
I will be listening to If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Your Mother by Julia Sweeney on audio. Since giving Tina Fey’s Bossypants a try on audio I feel that it’s the way to go with these types of memoirs.
The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell is the May selection for the Hashtag Bookclub on Twitter. You can tune in to the discussion using #theothertypist beginning on May 7th.
The Love Wars by L. Alison Heller is for another book club of sorts. I am reading a few of the selections for the 2013 Summer Reading Road Trip organized by the lovely ladies at BookSparks PR.
The Repeat Year by Andrea Lochen is another book featured in the 2013 Summer Reading Road Trip
The King’s Jar by Susan C Shea looks like a fun read. You can also expect to see an Author Spotlight featuring Susan this month.
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline is the May selection for the She Reads book club.
A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams is releasing this month and I really hope to get to this book. I absolutely fell in love with her work when I read Overseas. I’ve been told that this is a very different book, but I’m sure the writing will still be captivating.
The Last Camellia by Sarah Jio. What more can I say, It’s by SARAH JIO! I must get this one ASAP
Is This Tomorrow by Caroline Leavitt is up in my audio queue. It is one of the recent projects narrated by Xe Sands (one of my favorite narrators).
I got through several of April’s selections, but there are a couple that I have to carry forward into May because they are part of the Armchair Audies. (two previously unmentioned)
Other goings on this month include Children’s Book Week May 13th through 19th. As well as Armchair BEA at the end of the month.
Like I said at the beginning of this post, this is an incredibly ambitious plan. While I hope to get to all of these titles, its okay if I don’t.
What do you have planned for May?
