May 2022 TBR | Readathin

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing well! This weekend my aunt is here visiting from a few states away, so I’m going to be spending time with her.

Because of that, I’m likely not going to be finishing my current reads. So I’m going to be talking about those first, though they aren’t technically counting toward my Readathin TBR as of writing this post, I may switch some challenges around so they can. I have at least a couple books that are going to be counting toward two challenges, so maybe I’ll switch those.

I doubt I’m going to read all of these, but I’m hoping as things start calming down and we start getting into the flow of having an almost 7 year old and a newborn, I’ll be able to get back into reading more.

Anyway, let’s just get into this because I have a lot of books to share and I’ve already rattled on enough.

Okay! I think that’s everything! There were a lot of books, I know. But the last two are buddy reads and the rest of hopeful reads.

Let me know what you’re hoping to read in May and if you’re joining us in Readathin! Don’t forget to follow Readathin on Instagram and Twitter as well! (And my socials as well!)

I’ll see you all very soon! Have a wonderful weekend!

My name is Amanda! I'm 25 years old with one son, Alex. He's my world and my everything. I have my Bachelor's degree in English and Creative Writing. I run the Instagram @acourtofbooksandlove, the A Court of Books and Love blog and YouTube. I hope to one day help indie authors/lesser known authors work to spread their name and get their book to where they want it to be and ready for the public's eyes. If you're an indie author, feel free to email me to see if I'm interested in your novel (whether it's already published or not). I mainly read romance, YA fantasy, and YA contemporary. When emailing, please provide a copy of the novel or a link to where I can find it. For business inquires, email me at: acourtofbooksandlove@gmail.com

One thought on “May 2022 TBR | Readathin

  1. These look like a lot of fun! I’m hoping to read a lot of fantasy books in May that can count for both the Readathin and Wyrd & Wonder. I also have a couple of series that I’m hoping to make progress on so that I can finish the series this summer, too! Best of luck with the reading goals, and I hope you have a good visit with your aunt!
