Mysterious May TBR

So I’m very late with this, but it’s my first official TBR so I’m cutting myself some slack.

But of course, on my first TBR, I’m not going to tell you what books are actually included. And I can’t even tell you why yet. šŸ˜ My May wrap up (which will also happen 10-15 days into June… it’ll all make sense, I promise!) will explain everything.

There are a few books that aren’t a part of this mysterious TBR, though, and those are my May ARCs. These are all books that I’m super excited about that are coming out in May, so look forward to my reviews on their book birthdays.

OUT OF THE BLUE by Sophie Cameron

May 15, 2018

Just ten days after the death of Jaya’s mother, angels start falling out of the sky. That was months ago now, and everyone seems obsessed with finding a fallen angel alive but Jaya. So of course, she’s the one who finds the first angel to survive her fall.

F/F storyline, MC is Sri Lankan and Scottish and her love interest has Cystic fibrosis.

This is a modern summer camp retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing with Claudia instead of Claudio. It should a fluffy and fun summer read.

F/F storyline, one MC (Bee) is Ethiopian American.

ANGER IS A GIFT by Mark Oshiro

May 22, 2018

After Moss’s father is murdered by a police officer, Moss is left with grief and crippling anxiety. This only gets worse when the police become more of a fixture in his high school. Moss is left to decide how to use his anger and whether anything productive can come from it.

MC is gay, a POC (I’ll be more specific once I’ve read it), and has anxiety.

And that’s it! I don’t think I’m going to be requesting more ARCs this year, so in the next few months there will only be ARCs that I already have. I want to focus more of my reading energy on the books on my shelves and in my library.

What do y’all think? The vaguest TBR ever? Are you excited for June to find out what the heck’s going on?
