Last month I skipped out on writing an official TBR, but I am back to tell you what I hope to read in the month of May. If you’ve seen my Women’s Prize Shortlist post, then you’ll know that I still have four of those books on my TBR, but as three of them are coming from the library you won’t see them here.
My post for the Women’s Prize Longlist encapsulated the books in a single sentence, and I thought that it might be fun to try that here.
