I don’t know what I plan to add to my May 2017 TBR, but I know I want to keep on with the fun and exciting reads and focus on books that I know are fun! I also want to get some of the books that have been sat on my shelf forever read and make a decision on whether I want to keep them or not.
On with my May 2017 TBR.
Lola and the Boy Next Door
Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion… she believes in costume. The more expressive the outfit – the more sparkly, more wild – the better. And life is pretty close to perfect for Lola, especially with her hot rocker boyfriend.
That is, until the Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket return to the neighbourhood and unearth a past of hurt that Lola thought was long buried. So when talented inventor Cricket steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally face up to a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door. Could the boy from Lola’s past be the love of her future?
I read Anna and the French Kiss last month and I’m really excited to see how everything progresses and comes together. I really loved Anna and the French Kiss because of the slow burn romance so I’m hoping that this one will be the same and something I really enjoy and love. Fingers crossed for the first book on my May 2017 TBR.
Isla and the Happily Ever After
Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last?
Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.
I’m so excited for the finale of this mini series and I can’t wait to see how all the couples end up being. I’m sincerely hoping that this book doesn’t let me down in the last moment because then it’ll feel like it was all for nothing. But here’s hoping!
Destiny brought them together.
The gods will keep them apart.
When shy, awkward Helen Hamilton meets Lucas Delos for the first time, she thinks two things: the first, that he is the most ridiculously beautiful boy she has seen in her life; the second, that she wants to kill him with her bare hands.
An ancient curse means Lucas and Helen are destined to loathe one another. But sometimes love is stronger than hate, and not even the gods themselves can prevent what will happen next…
This is a complete series that I have had on my shelf for a very long time and one that I really need to get to! My only concern with having this on my list is that it seems to be completely covered in tropes. But who knows it might become one of my favourite guilty pleasures ever. So if I enjoy this one then the other books in the series will be added to my May 2017 TBR.
Thirteen Reasons Why
You can’t stop the future. You can’t rewind the past. The only way to learn the secret. . . is to press play.
Clay Jensen doesn’t want anything to do with the tapes Hannah Baker made. Hannah is dead. Her secrets should be buried with her.
Then Hannah’s voice tells Clay that his name is on her tapes– and that he is, in some way, responsible for her death.
All through the night, Clay keeps listening. He follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his small town. . .
. . .and what he discovers changes his life forever.
I want to watch the Netflix series and see what all the hype is! But I’m the worst bookworm ever in the sense that I can’t watch something without reading the book first! So this is my back up option if I decide I hate the Starcrossed series. Who knows what will happen, it’s turned into quite a complicated May 2017 Wrap Up.
