May 2019 TBR List

Hello lovelies!

So I decided, as it is only the 3rd May that I would post my TBR list for the month!! This list will be a bit of a continuation of my books from April, as I am still reading one of them, and have included it in this list!!

The first book is ‘The Corset’ by Laura Purcell! If you have been on my instagram even once, you probably know how obsessed I am with Laura Purcell and her work, ‘The Silent Companions’ is literally my favourite book ever! And I have to say, The Corset is just as good! This book I started last month, and I am currently just over half way though and I love it! The characters are so interesting, and I absolutely love the chapter format, and how each chapter switches between the different viewpoints of the main two characters! I don’t want to post any accidental spoilers, and I will wait for the review to say too much more about what I think!! Here is the blurb:

Is prisoner Ruth Butterham mad or a murderer? Victim or villain?Dorothea Truelove is young, wealthy and beautiful. Ruth Butterham is young, poor and awaiting trial for murder. When Dorothea’s charitable work leads her to Oakgate Prison, she finds herself drawn to Ruth, a teenage seamstress – and self-confessed murderess – who nurses a dark and uncanny secret. A secret that is leading her straight to the gallows. As Ruth reveals her disturbing past to Dorothea, the fates of these two women entwine, and with every revelation, a new layer of doubt is cast… Can Ruth be trusted? Is she mad, or a murderer?

The second book on my TBR list for May is ‘The Wicked King’ by Holly Black! I read the first book in the series, ‘The Cruel Prince’ last year and LOVED it, and I am beyond excited to read this book! I absolutely loved Jude Duarte and her crazy determination and horn hairstyle, I can’t wait to see what she gets up to next!! Here is the blurb:

After learning that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her, even as his fascination with her remains undiminished. Someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves. Now she must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan, in order to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

The third and final book on my May TBR list is ‘The Lady’s Guide to Vice and Virtue’ by Mackenzi Lee! Again, another sequel, and another book I loved the first one of!! I loved Felicity in the Gentleman’s Guide and I was so excited to hear she was going to have a whole book dedicated to her!! And I have heard a rumour that there is a super cute dog in it… colour me Excited!!!! Here is the blurb:

A year after an accidentally whirlwind grand tour with her brother Monty, Felicity Montague has returned to England with two goals in mind—avoid the marriage proposal of a lovestruck suitor from Edinburgh and enroll in medical school. However, her intellect and passion will never be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who see men as the sole guardians of science.

But then a window of opportunity opens—a doctor she idolizes is marrying an old friend of hers in Germany. Felicity believes if she could meet this man he could change her future, but she has no money of her own to make the trip. Luckily, a mysterious young woman is willing to pay Felicity’s way, so long as she’s allowed to travel with Felicity disguised as her maid.

In spite of her suspicions, Felicity agrees, but once the girl’s true motives are revealed, Felicity becomes part of a perilous quest that leads them from the German countryside to the promenades of Zurich to secrets lurking beneath the Atlantic.

I decided not to set my goals too high at the beginning of the month, as I want to leave room for any additions!! I’m also planning to read and review a few history books too!

What is on your TBR list for this month?

See you next week!

Elizabeth
