April & May Wrap-Up + June Reading Month

I’m so glad to be alive and posting on the blog again! It’s been raining steadily for the past one month now and my favourite month of the year has arrived. I can’t wait to get back into the blogging rhythm again and finally have the time to visit all the lovely people who follow me and chat with me here. Without further ado, let me talk about how my reading went in the month of April and May. After that, I’ll delve into my plans for June. Since I’m a bit more free from this month onwards, I’m attempting to read more than I have ever before and challenge myself, which is exciting and scary at the same time. Hopefully I’ll have only good news to share in my next wrap-up post.

Top Ten Tuesday: ARCs on My Wishlist

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for May 1st, 2018 is: Books I’d Slay a Lion to Get Early. I do believe myself to be an environmentally conscious and non-violent person, so I’d never really slay a lion even if I encountered one, so let me rephrase that to: Books I’d Wish upon a Shooting Star to Get Early. I hope you’re all taking notes because these should definitely be on your TBR as well!

#SHOSPH Blog Tour: Superhero Books on my TBR

I’m moving away from my usual Top Ten Tuesday post to bring you a special one today. It is still a listicle though, so don’t turn away just yet! Two weeks ago, I signed up for the blog tour of Second-hand Origin Stories by Lee Blauersouth and I have two stops on this tour! This blog tour is kindly hosted and organized by the lovely Shealea from That Bookshelf Bitch. I’ve already read and enjoyed the book, so if you want my live reactions as I read it, check out this Twitter thread.

SHOSPH Blog Tour - Feature Post

I haven’t actually read many books having superheroes, although I’m a huge fan of the movies (the MCU, to be precise). Even as a child, I had little love for comic books. I’ve always found it hard to start a comic book series. There are so many volumes to keep track of, most of which were published much before this millennium, and none of them are easily available in India – those are my (probably flimsy) reasons for not appreciating the source material. Second-hand Origin Stories introduced me to the world of actual full-length novels having superheroes in them. There are quite a few other books that have superhero themes as well that have come out recently and I’m dying to get my hands on them! Let’s take a look at the ones I’ve added to my TBR.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for March 20th, 2018 is: Books on My Spring TBR. It’s already summer here in my country, I’m going to be talking about the books I plan to read in the months of April and May. June signals the start of monsoon, so I’m not sure if I can get to all of these in time, but let’s be honest, we bookworms all have ridiculous TBRs!
