That's a busy TBR! Looking forward to hear your thoughts on ACOTAR.

I have, for the moment:

Malice - John Gwynne

The Once And Future Witches - Alix E Harrow

The Way Of Kings - Brandon Sanderson

Traitors Moon - Lynn Flewelling

Hollow Empire - Sam Hawke

 

That's already quite a lot for me, but only Traitors Moon is an audiobook, so I hope I can finish those (most of them are readalongs or buddyreads so I need to make it work) I will have to pick some more audiobooks to get through the month though, probably some of the following:

Golden Fool - Robin Hobb

Merlin Redux - Dave Duncan

Morning Star - Pierce Brown

Yeah, it's busy but some of them will be pretty short. I am going to be doing a lot of reading while I wait for my oldest to get out of his summer college classes. I will be doing a lot of driving and waiting. He is still high school age so not quite old enough to drive himself just yet. I am hoping to start ACOTAR tomorrow! I will let you know my thoughts for sure! I really need to add some Robin Hobb to my June TBR, You are making me really excited to start reading those books!

I only put two books on my May TBR because my goal is to do less reading and more time outside on my bike now that the weather is getting nicer here in the midwest US of A.  I hope I can at least get through one of these.  😂

Power of the Dog - Don Winslow

@Jolien Reads where is a good place to start with Robin Hobb? Steve bought me Assassins Apprentice should I start there?

Yes, that's perfect! Most of Robin Hobbs works are in the Realm of the Elderlings, a series with 16 books in total, but it's seperated into smaller series. You have

the Farseer trilogy (focus on Fitz)

the Liveship Traders trilogy (focus on different characters in the same world)

the Tawny Man trilogy (focus on Fitz)

the Rain Wild Chronicles (4 books, same setting at the LST)

the Fitz and the Fool trilogy (focus on Fitz again)

 

Assassins Apprentice is the first book in the Farseer trilogy. You could start either with the Farseer or the LST trilogy, but to be honest it's slightly better to start with Farseer because you will have some Eastereggs in between series and if you read Farseer first there are some you will find in the LST, while that's not the case the other way around!

That is great information!! Thank you so much! I have a good start now! I’m excited to move forward!
