May TBR

Hey DEMONS! How is everyone? I am doing fantastically well. Here is my May TBR:

 

First up, The Bookish Babes Book Club is reading Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. Here is the synop:

Her story begins on a train.

The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule. To commemorate their Great Victory, they host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The prize? An audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor’s ball in Tokyo.

Yael, a former death camp prisoner, has witnessed too much suffering, and the five wolves tattooed on her arm are a constant reminder of the loved ones she lost. The resistance has given Yael one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experiment51LKTQmvKxL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_ation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year’s only female racer, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele’s twin brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael’s every move.

But as Yael grows closer to the other competitors, can she be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and stay true to her mission?
From the author of The Walled City comes a fast-paced and innovative novel that will leave you breathless.
You can buy it here.
Up next is Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller:Perfect for fantasy fans of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo, the first book in this new duology features a compelling gender fluid main character, impressive worldbuilding, and fast-paced action.

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class—and the nobles who destroyed their home. masks-of-shadows-ew

When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand—the Queen’s personal assassins, named after the rings she wears—Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge.

But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition, and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive.

 

This book is out the end of August and you can preorder it here.

 

I only have two books on my TBR this month as I am having major spinal surgery in around 2 weeks. I hope I can get to more books! Lets hope I can!

April Wrap-up

This month I didn’t quite follow my TBR. However, I did exceed my goal of only 3 books! EEEPP!

Here is what I read:

326664254         unhook     pockets2         22840421

 

As you can see I read 4 books! 4! Go Aubrie! I still haven’t quite peeked out of my book slump just yet, but these wonderful books helped me get through the hectic month that was April.

My favorite read had to be My Lady Jane. I listened to it on Audible and the narrator was FANTASTIC! ❤ To be quite honest, I am not finished with it just yet. But I am so close it hurts! I love the quirky, weird, hilarious storytelling that Cynthia, Brodi, and Jodi are able to master perfectly. I can’t wait for more from these ladies! 5/5!!!

UnHooked was dark, mysterious and perfect. I loved it! That ending killed me though. Maxwell, you’ve got some explaining to do missy. 5/5

Graveyard Shift and Pocket full of Posies, ahh a series I come back to often! I seriously love Mrs. Roquet and her skill as a storyteller. I LOVE the ship that is introduced in book 2 and want to sail it around the world and back again. I won’t spoil anything, but book 2 is SOOOO good. Not that the first one isn’t good… but in Posies it just gets real. Angsty, sexy perfection is what it is. YAASSS! 5/5

I wasn’t able to get to #ACOMAF. Mostly because I have been bust with writing, my family and some personal health issues which I will  make a post on soon. But, my friend loaned my the audiobook to listen to while I am recovering from surgery in the next week or so.

Well, thats my April Wrap-up. Hopefully next months will be longer.
