May TBR (2017)

Thursday, May 04, 2017

Hello lovelies! Today I'd like to share my 'to be read' list for the month of May (I was actually supposed to read most of these books in April, oops!). I promise I'll try harder in the upcoming months to review books closer to their publication dates - all I'm missing is the time to do so! 

I'd also like to say that I am hugely grateful to the publishers who have sent me books to review.

I'm Still Here - Clélie Avit

I'm Still Here is not your usual love story, it's about a girl called Elsa who has been in a coma for five months and has only regained partial consciousness and a boy called Thibault who's seeking a retreat. This book is the thinnest out of all the other books on this list but I have a feeling it will leave a massive impression nevertheless.

On Writing - Stephen King

I bought this book as an Easter present for myself as I'm a big fan of Stephen King's writing and I'd like to find out more about him. I've also been trying to dive into fiction writing but as I haven't studied creative writing I thought a 'guide' would be useful to lead me in the right direction!

Before The Fall - Noah Hawley

Before The Fall tells the story of two survivors after a private jet on which they were on board plunges into the ocean. One of the survivors is now heir to a TV mogul's fortune and one is a man who only chanced to be on board at all. Noah Hawley is an award-winning creator of the Fargo TV series, I previously haven't had the pleasure to read or watch any of his work but I'm excited to do so now!

These Dividing Walls - Fran Cooper

In the distant corners of Paris stands a building of separate lives; all that divides them will soon collapse. I have a feeling that These Dividing Walls will be an intriguing read. The blurb doesn't really give much away and that makes me desperate to actually read it and find out its secrets. 

My Sister - Michelle Adams

My Sister is a story of two sisters that have led separate lives but whose family is bound by a harrowing secret. I'm currently half way through this book and I have to say that I'm loving it! I honestly don't want to put it down. The writing flows and the story keeps you on your toes.

Crimson & Bone - Marina Fiorato

Crimson & Bone is a story of love and obsession. Annie Stride is a penniless prostitute, newly evicted and pregnant. She plans to cast herself from Waterloo Bridge but is saved by Francis, a painter who takes her as his muse. Annie has a new lavish life but there are some who won't let her forget where she came from. This book seems to be different from the books I usually read but that makes me even more excited to read it! 

I am so excited to read every single one of the books I mentioned above, and I'm even more excited to share my thoughts on them with you so make sure to stay tuned for my upcoming posts!

May the 4th be with you! 😉
