April Wrap-Up and May TBR

As you may recall, last month I set myself 28 books to read, I managed to complete 12 of them which included: My Cousin Rachel, The Mystery of the Blue Train, Eternal, Unsaid Things, The Listerdale Mysteries, Changeling, Unravel Me, Birdsong, One Day, Between Shades of Gray, Corner of White and The Golden Lily. As usual, reviews have either been posted or will be in the coming weeks.

This month I had planned to dial back my TBR by several notches after the crazy one last month, but unfortunately due to my inability to stop myself from borrowing and buying books, this month has turned out to be even crazier.  This month, there are a staggering 37 books that I want to read- as crazy as this sounds, in my defence some of these books are quite short, others I have to read for my Literature class, some of them are have completed, and then of course are the bunch of author requests that Chami and I have agreed to do. Once again, I don’t really expect to finish all of these this month though I would like to get through a decent chunk of them. So without further ado, my insane May TBR:
