First Line Fridays | 15th May

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?  If you want to make your own post, follow the rules below:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!

Here we go…

2021 May TBR

I can’t believe it’s May already!!! The Winter semester is finally done and I’m only teaching one class over the summer, so, in theory, I’ll have more time to read–especially since I’ve officially finished my Masters! This means I will also have more time to focus on the blog after being scattered in posting in the latter half of March and April.

That being said, I have a very large TBR (again) and I’m hoping I get to all of them and more (I don’t know how that’ll happen, but weirder things have happened). I have a good 25 books on my TBR, but I will only highlight the ones I will be prioritizing. I have a few that I have to read for group reads, some that ARCs I have to read for tours, and just some others to throw in the mix. I’m participating in a couple of readathons too (TBR and Beyond Book Club Middle Grade Mayhem – Magical Journey and Asian Readathon), so I’ll highlight those as well. All that out of the way, let’s take a look at the books I hope to read in May.
