I’m still participating in the Unread Shelf Challenge hosted by Whitney at The Unread Shelf, and this month’s Unread Shelf Challenge is to read a backlist title (anything published before 2020) by an author with a newer book out, so I’m building my May TBR with this thought in mind.
To help me whiddle down my books, I have a few categories I’d like to try to hit each month:
- A Backlist Title: Silver Sparrow by: Tayari Jones
- A BOTM Title: The Remains of the Day by: Kazuo Ishiguro
- A Nonfiction Title: The Tattooist of Auschwitz by: Heather Morris
- A NetGalley/Edelweiss Title – (this doesn’t really fit the category this month, so I’m just going to read one of the books I have from NetGalley/Edelweiss): Good Morning, Destroyer of Men’s Souls: A Memoir of Women, Addiction, and Love by: Nina Renata Aron
- A Memoir: This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage by: Ann Patchett
- At least 2 physical ARCs:
Other books up for consideration:
- Love and Ruin by: Paula McLain
- Lily and the Octopus by: Steven Rowley
- Everything I Never Told You by: Celeste Ng
- Age of Miracles by: Karen Thompson Walker
- Last Will by: Bryn Greenwood
There you have it! What’s on your list of hopefuls for the month of May?
