Amanda’s May TBR Jar Picks

Hi, lovelies! I’ve been wanting to try and be better about making a loose TBR for each month. I think I’ve done okay so far this year without making actual posts about it. But that’s mostly because I’ve been rereading in preparation for new books (rereading the Grishaverse for the Netflix show and for Rule of Wolves for example). I’ve also been doing things like #ARCApril where I spent the month of April reading my NetGalley ARC’s (expect an update on my NetGalley shelf soon!) This month I want to finally use the TBR jar that I made in the end of December 2020. I have tried TBR jars in the past that didn’t work for me because they picked specific books, but this one is much more open. Instead of picking titles out of a jar I’m picking things like ‘most recently purchased’ or ‘science fiction’ so I will get to choose what book I want for each prompt. Let’s get into which prompts I pick out of the jar and which books I picked for them!

Middle-Grade

Aru Shah and the City of Gold by Roshani Chokshi
This one was obvious for me because if it didn’t fit a TBR jar prompt, I would have added it below to the books I’m reading anyway.

Adult

The Light Brigade by Kameron Hurley
I found this one at one of my local independent bookstores and I couldn’t believe it. I want to make it a priority because I have heard nothing but good things about this author.

5 Star Prediction

Miss Meteor by Tehlor Kay Mejia & Anna-Marie McLemore
Antonia and I actually just did our next round of 5 star predictions, so I will just borrow from that post.

Sequel

A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon
I’ve been slowly working my way through this series and it’s been a bit since I finished book five. I think I’m ready to start the next book.

LGBTQIA

Flash Fire by T.J. Klune
I have an eARC of this one and I’m really excited to continue this series.

These are what I’ve picked from my TBR jar this month. So, I will check back in at the end of the month or after I’ve read all of these. I do have a few other books on my TBR as I usually read 10+ books each month and I wanted to start easy with only five picks from my jar. So, here are some of the other books I want to read this month.

The Electric Kingdom by David Arnold
This is the book that’s been chosen for May’s book club. I meet with four local friends each month and we mostly just catch up. But I’m really excited for this one as I’ve heard some good things about it.

King of Scars and Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo
I’m still waiting for my preorder of Rule of Wolves to be delivered, so I’m waiting to reread King of Scars until I get shipping information about Rule of Wolves. It might not happen in May, but I’m hopeful.

We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal
I think I’m going to be buddy reading this one with Allison over on bookstagram. I’ve been meaning to read this forever, but I’ve seen so many mixed reviews that I’m nervous to read it.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I’ve been really wanting to reread either this series or the ACOTAR series. I think I’m going to choose this one because it’s completed.

That’s all that I have planned at the moment to read for the month of May. I’m really excited about all of these books. What will you be reading this month?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
