Today’s post is going to show you what I’m planning on reading in the month of May.
I’ve still got a couple of books left over from my April TBR that I’ll be carrying forward to the month of May (The Last Tycoon by F.Scott Fitzgerald and Criminal Justice: A Very Short Introduction). I’ll be posting my April wrap-up very soon!
This is going to be quite a short post as I’m trying not to set myself too many reading goals to reach and want to just take May as it comes – reading what I like, reading when I like…
This month I’m hoping to focus most of my time on reading J.R.R. Tolkien books including The Hobbit, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
I know that I definitely read these books as a child as a I remember taking them out of the library and the librarian wishing me luck with reading all these big books! However, I don’t exactly remember everything about them and only remember the stories through recently watching the films.
This month I really, really wanted some pure escapism and I think that’s exactly what The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy offers. I’m looking forward to reading these books as an adult, reading more fantasy and reading more of J.R.R. Tolkien’s work.
Tolkien, to me, is the master of fantasy writing and although some people might find his books relatively simple (good vs. bad narrative), he definitely set the standard for modern day fantasy.
The books and the films are both so magical to me and I can’t wait to delve into them again.
What are you hoping to read in May?
Thanks for reading!
Love, Zoë xx
