How is it May next week? Where did April go? *has existential crisis*
I enjoy reading monthly Wrap Up and TBR posts (as well as watching them on YouTube) and you know me, I couldn’t resist writing my own. I hope writing this type of post on a regular basis will help to read more and hopefully get on top of the ever-growing To Be Read pile. The more books I read, the more books I can buy. The more books I can buy, the more books I can read. It’s a win-win, right?
April Wrap Up and May TBR
Books I Read in April

We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan and Brian Conaghan | 3*
Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella | 2*
Confessions of a Shopaholic (Book One) by Sophie Kinsella | 3*

How To Be Champion by Sarah Millican | 3*
Clean by Juno Dawson | Repeal Anthology by Una Mullally | Skylarks by Karen Gregory | Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough
Help me, I have a dilemma! I am currently torn between starting Clean or Skylarks, a decision not being helped by the fact that both books have received glowing reviews from the book community. I have enjoyed every Juno Dawson book I have read so far, but I also fell in love with Karen Gregory’s debut Countless. Argh, it’s too difficult!
I was delighted to see Sarah Pinborough has a new release coming in May, and after loving her previous thrillers such as 13 Minutes and Behind Her Eyes, I have nothing but high expectations for Cross Her Heart.
Finally, a very important book that I MUST read in May is the Repeal Anthology edited by Una Mullally. As you may be aware, Ireland is gearing up for the referendum to Repeal the Eight, and this anthology contains short stories, poems and real-life accounts documenting experiences of how the Eighth Amendment has affected them. I have already read a few pages of it, and I cannot wait to read more. Luckily, I have both a physical copy and an e-book copy, so there is no excuse for me to not be without this book.
What will you be reading in May?
