Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share my may tbr, I chose most of these books to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and the other 4 books are my most anticipated May releases.
Here are the books I’m planning to read:
We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal: I had fun reading the first book in this series even if I had issues with it (here’s my full review) and I have heard that this sequel is so much better than the first book, so I can’t wait to see how this duology ends.
Jade War by Fonda Lee: I’m so scared of reading this book because I know it’s going to make me suffer, but I know I’m goign to love it and I want to read it before the last book comes out at the end of the year.
The Burning God by R.F. Kuang: another book that I’m scared of reading because I know it’s going to break my heart but I also know I’m going to love it.
Murder in Old Bombay by Nev March: as an Agatha Christie fan and in general a fan of cozy mysteries, I’m looking for more diverse books in this subgenre and I have heard nothing but great things about this one.
Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan: I rewatched the Crazy Rich Asian movie this month and I’m even more excited to read the final book in this series.
Tha Dating Plan by Sara Desai: I thought the first book in this series of companion novels was just ok, but this one has two of my favorite tropes: fake dating and marriage of convenience, so off course I’m going to give it a chance.
A Sweet Mess by Jayci Lee: This ounds like a really sweet, fun romance, which is exactly what I’m looking for.
A Match Made for Thanksgiving by Jackie Lau: I have read and enjoyed a couple of Jackie Lau’s books and this is a short novella, which is great since this is an overly ambitious tbr.
Illusionary by Zoraida Cordova: I loved the first book in this duology and I can’t wait to know how it all ends
People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry I loved Beach Read, so I was looking forward to Emily Henry’s next romance and then I heard it was a friends to lovers romance and my excitement multiplied.
Hang the Moon by Alexandria Bellefleur: I really enjoyed the first book in this series of companion novels and I can’t wait for this best friend’s little brother romance.
How to Find a Princess by Alyssa Cole: Alyssa Cole’s books are great, I loved the first book in this series and I can’t wait to read another f/f romance written by her because I know I’m going to love it.
