All the books I want to read in May |Monthly TBR &amp Reading Challenges Recap

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! How are you all? I hope you’re fine.

Today I am back with a monthly TBR and of course with a recap of my reading challenges!

And now without further ado, let’s start with a quick recap of what I accomplished last month (challenge-wise). My April TBR can be found here and the Wrap-up can be found here.

What to say next

I Hate the Internet

Tricky Twenty-Two


Epic Reads: Monthly Challenge – 0/1 book read – 1/1 book currently reading

But I can change the book with King of Fools or even with Wildcard so I was successful with this challenge even though I didn’t finish the book I initially wanted to read.

Meaning that Epic Reads is ✅

Diversify your Reading Challenge – 1/1 read – success ✅

Paper Girls, Vol.2

Beat the Backlist Challenge – 0/1 finished


I still haven’t read this one but I read many other Backlist books like:

In a Dark, Dark Wood; You; Disgrace; Paper Girls, Vol.2; Wildcard; Shadow & Bone and Grim Lovelies.

Meaning that Beat the Backlist is also ✅

I only finished Birth yesterday so I won’t add it to the read-pile.

As you can see I failed some challenges again. Will I do better this month? I hope because I’m honestly so bad at these things. 😅

And now let’s move on to the actual TBR! I will participate in Wyrd and Wonder and you can find my TBR for that one here.
