Recent TBR Additions: May 2020 Edition

Blame it on my wish for the public library to open soon and dream of being able to put ALL the books on hold, but my TBR has been getting even bigger during stay-at-home. I feel like I do have it under control or am at least finding a balance, since I’m reading everything that haven’t yet read on my bookshelves and broke out the iPad to read some e-books. Listed below are the most recent books I’ve added to my TBR.



The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix –  I’ve been in the mood lately to mix up my contemporary reading game, which includes a supernatural thriller that follows a Southern women’s book club convinced that their new neighbor is a vampire. The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires found my way on to my TBR because its Bad on Paper’s May book club pick. I’m not sure if I’ll read it before the end of May, but I’d love to read it this summer.




The Guest List by Lucy Foley –  The Guest List was an April Book of the Month pick – it seemed like everyone I follow on Instagram chose this or Beach Read (which is the book I ultimately went with). This thriller is set at a wedding off the coast of Ireland, where a wedding guest turns up dead.





The Idea of You by Robinne Lee – Blame this TBR choice on Bad on Paper too – can you tell I’ve been listening to so many of their episodes on my daily walks? The Idea of You is one of their go-to recommendations, but I’ve seen it hyped up in many other bookish circles. It’s often described as One Direction fan fiction, following a thirty-nine year old mother who begins a relationship with a member of a popular boy band.




My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren – My Favorite Half-Night Stand is one of the two adult standalone Christina Lauren books I have left to read! The other is Dating You / Hating You – I’ll probably pick that up or Beautiful Bastard before their next 2020 release. Not important, I sort’ve wish My Favorite Half-Night Stand got a cover re-design to match the rest of their beautiful rom-com covers.




Slightly South of Simple (Peachtree Bluff #1) by Kristy Woodson Harvey – I’m always up for some fluff reads, especially during the summer. Slightly South of Simple is a highly recommended beach read.






From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon – From Sand and Ash was recommended on Sarah’s Bookshelves Live by Stephanie of @pieladybooks. From Sand and Ash sounds so different from historical fiction books set during the Holocaust. The book is set in wartime Italy, where a Catholic priest keeps a childhood Jewish friend hidden in his church.






Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert – Hi my name is Haley and it’s 110% guaranteed that I will add any contemporary romance with a cartoon cover to my TBR. Reading Get a Life, Chloe Brown is part of my plan to catch up on all the contemporary romances from 2019 and 2020.

  1. I have so many of these books on my tbr too, especially The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires on my tbr for this month. And I think From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon is one of my only books by her that I haven’t read yet. Need to change it!

    And hope you enjoy My Favorite Half-Night Stand – it was a fun read for me 😀
