As I did last month, here is my May TBR list and there are some exciting books.

First book on the list is The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. This is a historical drama based in Armsterdam in the 17th century. Nella, the main character, is offered a miniature house which, as the story goes on, starts to reflect her own real life. I’m actually mid-way through it, and it is good! This book was reviewed on Regan’s youtube channel and she made me want to read it.

Then, there is The Dark Days Club by  Alison Goodman.This book follows the main character Lady Helen in London in the 19th century. Apparently, it deals with a secret society who fghts creatures of the dark during the Regency in England. This novel promises to be full of epic moments, stunning battles and fights and colourful characters. This again was recommend by PeruseProject.


Next is Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz. This is the story of two teenage boys and it is about their relationships as friends, with their families and life in general. It is set in Texas. I’m expecting it to be like The Perks of Being a Wallflower or that sort of books, which sounds promising. Again, recommended by PeruseProject.


Next stop is The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon. This is second volume in her series which started with The Bone Season and which I read two months ago. I can’t wait to pick it up as the story is fascinating. The characters are really endearing and the development is fast-paced and well done. Even the villains are more complex than waht first meets the eye.


Finally, La Croix de l’assassin by Eric Giacometti and Jacques Ravenne. This is the fourth instalment of their Freemason series. It is written in French. The main character is a police detective and a freemason and his investigations lead him to discover many secrets of history from secrets of the Nazis to pure gold and eternal life with Nicholas Flamel, each time with a villain worthy of their names. I’m very interested to see what this novel will reveal.


I hope to have the time to read all those books this month.If I do, it’ll be a very happy month 🙂

Until the next review,

Cheers, -A.
