So today I am writing a May TBR post because I will be super busy this weekend. I’m meeting up with some college friends and finally going to see Infinity War. It’s luck that my sister and my friends still go there and I am able to visit my favorite independent bookstore. At the point of posting this, I have already finished Emergency Contact and have started Aruh Shah and the End of Time.
- The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan
The Burning Maze is the next book in the Trials of Apollo series and I am so excited to finally be able to read it. I’m actually starting my TBR with the second book on my list because I haven’t gotten the book yet. Lester and Meg are on a mission to go into the Labyrinth to find the third emperor and the next oracle somewhere in southwest America. While Leo is on a mission to warn Camp Jupiter about an incoming attack.
- Emergency Contact by Mary H.K Choi
Penny Lee can’t wait to go to college in Austin, Texas and leave everything behind her. Sam is an aspiring director that is down on his luck working and sleeping at the cafe he works at. They meet in what is essentially an awkward meet ugly, but somehow they manage to exchange numbers. They share many things with each other becoming inseparable without having to even see each other in person.
- Aruh Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
When I found out that this book was being released, I got super excited. I’m a huge nerd over learning about different cultures mythology. Plus Rick Riordan presents the book and we can tell by this list how I feel about that. Aruh Shah is a twelve year old with the penchant for stretching the truth and it comes back to bite her when her classmates dare her to light the cursed lamp of Barata. By doing this she releases the Sleeper, a demon who will awaken the God of Destruction. With everyone else frozen in time, she must five legendary Pandava brothers and journey through the kingdom of death. All while being a twelve year old girl.
- Daughter of a Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
Pirates, female pirate captains, and all we need is Colin O’Donoghue as Captain Hook and we’d be set. This book starts with the premise that 17-year-old Pirate captain Alosa is on a mission to find an ancient hidden map. She allows herself to be captured by her enemies in a plan to help find the map. What she didn’t count on was the clever and attractive first mate Riden, but don’t worry the daughter of the pirate king has a few tricks up her sleeve.
- Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly
I also enjoy a good historical fiction novel once and awhile and Target always manages to have on available that catches my eye. Plus it is inspired by a the real life of a WWII heroine, can someone say Peggy Carter. New York Socialite Caroline is located at the French Consulate when the war begins. Polish teenager Kasia Kuzmerick is a courier for an underground resistance movement and Herta Oberheuser is a doctor thrown into the male dominated Nazi secrets and power. Their worlds collide and the story of these women span continents to reveal a justice long forgotten.
- The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
In modern day New York, magic is almost extinct with the few Mageus hidden deep in the shadows. The reason is called the Brink that blankets the whole of the island and the only way to cross it is to lose your magic and possible your life. Our main character Esta is a thief who has been stealing artifacts from those who have started the brink and begins a mission that takes her back in time to 1902. It is there she must steal the book before it is destroyed, but nothing is as it seems in the past and she might have to betray everyone there to fix the future.
- Roar by Cara Carmack

In order to hide this fact, her mother arranges a marriage with a stormling prince and she hopes this will save her. Yet, she finds out a darker secret by finding the Black Market where storm hunters sell the magic. She finds out she can gain the magic and this changes everything.
- Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan
This is the final book to the agnus chase trilogy, and if I manage to get through all of my other books than I will be starting this book. Magnus and friends are a about to set sail on a journey to the furthest reaches along the border of Niflheim and Jotunheim to stop the greatest threat to starting Ragnarok.
