MAY TBR | Classics and 2021 Releases! (will i finally rate something above 2.5 stars?)

Hi friends, welcome to my blog! So, March and April were a bit messy and I didn’t read many books that I rated above 2.5 stars but it’s a new month and I have faith that I’m going to read some truly fantastic books! I have a few buddy reads lined up with Rebecca that I’m really excited for and I also have some older titles that I’ve been meaning to pick up for YEARS so I have my fingers crossed that I’ll enjoy them!

*If youre interested to know my thoughts on a particular book , please do still tell me because that will definitely give me extra motivation to pick it up!

  1. 2.5 stars?!?! Jeesh – not a good month for reading at all but I like your positive attitude! You can’t go wrong with 1984 or the Picture of Dorian Gray – classics! Hope you like them… I wanted to recommend a book that I just finished that I think you might rate more favorably(!!)- “Lucky King” by Bruce Henderson ( – it definitely falls under the speculative fiction/suspense genres BUT it’s also a book with dark humor, some really unique supernatural elements, and a modern take on the 7 deadly sins. Basically – what would happen if your fortune cookie fortune always came true? The “Lucky King” has the ability to “predict or control” the future of people who get his fortune cookies. This is book one in the series and focuses on super conservative, morally corrupt, radio DJ, Jack DuVal (picture a Rush Limbaugh type), and his fortune cookie reads “You will lose what you treasure most.” This prediction affects him as well as other people’s lives that intertwine together in unexpected ways. I love the concept of a pre-determined fate and this book covers the topic in a really exciting way. I am sooooo stoked for the other books in the series. Hope you will check it out in the future (I can see you’ve got quite a few books to keep you busy lol).
