It’s really early to be posting this, I know. However, it’s a quick and easy post for me to write after a super long day at work. Also, I don’t have a picture for my next review yet so I’m being lazy.
I’m not sure what ARCs I have to read in May, but I don’t have any pictures of them either so I wouldn’t be including them anyway.
I’ve been really enjoying creating a monthly to be read at the moment as I’m actually sticking to them for once. Surprising I know.
The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials #3) by Phillip Pullman
I’m literally about the finish the second season of the show right after posting this so I thought it was about time I finish the books. This series is one I’m really enjoying and I can’t wait to see how it all ends as I actually don’t know.
It’s a shame I never read His Dark Materials when I was younger because I know I would have loved it. I’m glad I decided to check it out as an adult though.
Goodreads synopsis: Will is the bearer of the knife. Now, accompanied by angels, his task is to deliver that powerful, dangerous weapon to Lord Asriel – by the command of his dying father.
But how can he go looking for Lord Asriel when Lyra is gone? Only with her help can he fathom the myriad plots and intrigues that beset him.
The two great powers of the many worlds are lining up for war, and Will must find Lyra, for together they are on their way to battle, an inevitable journey that will even take them to the world of the dead…
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I’m ashamed to say that I still haven’t read this even though I had it on a to be read post from a year ago. Terrible I know.
Even though this has been out so long and it is very popular I haven’t seen any spoilers for it. This is surprising as I am constantly on book Twitter. I can’t wait to see if it will live up to the hype.
Goodreads synopsis: First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations. The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince.
As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?
