I’ve been doing really well following my monthly TBRs lately. April felt like a very long month and I got so much reading done. I’m still in the reading mood, but also in the rereading mood, so I’ve been pulling out some old favorites from my shelves. However, I’ve been really intrigued by some popular novels being talked about everywhere recently, so I’ve purchased some new stuff, too.

To Read…

Private (Private, #1)Private – Kate Brian

I own the original 14 installments of this series and reread it almost every year. It’s honestly not even very good writing (and has insane plots) but it’s extremely addicting. I started reading the series on the 1st of this month and am currently on book 3. While I’d like to read the whole series throughout May, I have some other stuff I’d like to read as well, so I’m going to aim to read at least half the series (7 books).

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn HugoThe Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo – Taylor Jenkins Reid

I’m so excited that this finally arrived in my mailbox. It’s been so talked about in the book community lately and at this point I feel like I have to read it.


Daisy Jones & The SixDaisy Jones & The Six – Taylor Jenkins Reid

I am also very anxious to read this novel by the same author. I have heard even more about this than the other one, and I have very high hopes. I’ll admit that I’m quite nervous as well, though, because historical fiction has never really been my thing and I’d really like to enjoy these two reads.


The last book on my TBR for this month is The Spirit in the Crypt, which doesn’t currently have a Goodreads or Amazon page, but can be read about on the authors site here. I’ll be reading this one as a review request from the author and I’m really looking forward to it because I’ve been enjoying paranormal story lines a lot lately.

So, it’s possible that I’ve overloaded my TBR this month (even though it looks small it’s actually a minimum of 10 books), but I’ve got a lot I want to read and I think that this list is doable. We shall see!

What are you planning to read this month? Talk to me (:

  1. Brittany, re: Daisy Jones & the Six, I want to read it too. Being an old rocker and music biz mavin, this is likely right down my alley. A widely-read music blogger named Bob Lefsetz whom I follow wrote his entire blog on this the other day, and that pushed me over the line. Check it out:

    Of course, this covers an era long before your time, so it might not be right up your alley.

    1. Thank you SO much for sharing that blog link with me. I just read it and it was without a doubt the best article/review I’ve read on the book. I’m now even more excited than I was to read it. It definitely is before my time, but I have a lot of love for the music of the seventies. The main reason I decided I’d give Taylor Jenkins Reid a chance (even though historical fiction rarely intrigues me) was because I heard that this book was supposed to be based on Fleetwood Mac. I suppose it makes me “basic”, but I love the band and their music and I couldn’t help but buy the book. I’m SO looking forward to finally getting it in the mail and reading it!!

  2. I’m so so so happy to see Evelyn Hugo on here! It’s SUPER good. I was a little reluctant about reading it at first because of the hype, but I can assure you that it lives up to it. I still have to read Daisy Jones as well and I’m looking forward to that one a lot! Hope you enjoy all your reads this month and that you have a wonderful May🙂

    1. I’m soooo ready to read it!! Usually the hype does ruin the book for me but I’ve seen a lot of passages and quotes from this book (as well as Daisy Jones & The Six) and from what I’ve seen, I’m going to enjoy it! Thank you so much! I hope you have a great reading month, too!!
