This is an impressive list. A lot of long books. Are you reading just Little Women or are you reading the bind up that includes Little Wives? 

I also picked the Dark Side. I thought the prompts were more fun (what does that say about me?). I tried to fit in all the books I already planned to read for the month of May, but I will probably have to change my TBR as library books become available. For example, Nettle & Bone is waiting for me to pick it up now. This was a surprise, because I thought I was far down the list, but YAY!

The one book I didn't find room for was Memories of Ice which is the next Malazan book. I thought if I put it in this TBR I would be forced to finish it by the end of the month. But now @Steve wants to have the show the first Sunday of June, so I might as well put it into this readathon lol. It would be perfect for the Galactic Empire prompt: a book that intimidates you.

The good news is that more than half of the books I plan to read are less than 350 pages. So, the pressure isn't so bad.  I am trying to figure out a fun way to put this TBR into my bullet journal. Do I make a whole spread or just put the TBR into my monthly spread. What are you doing?

So here is my list as of today:

Comprehend Speech - neutral ability - A translated novel - The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami (reading this for Asian and Pacific Islander Month)

Seduction- a book with a pretty cover- The Willful Princess and the Piebald Prince by Robin Hobb

Force Fear- a horror/thriller book- The Cipher by Isabella Maldonado

Corruption- start a series- The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart

Mind Control- pets or people chose the book for you- Hatchet by Gary Paulsen (picked by my son, he picked a Star Wars book first, but I asked him to pick something shorter lol)

Weapons:

Lightsaber- a book with your favorite color on the cover- Book Lovers by Emily Henry (blue)

Blasters- take another shot at a previous ability prompt- comprehend speech - City of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Space Ships- a book that has a sky or space/stars on the cover- Kulti by Mariana Zapata

Partners:

First Order - a book with a compelling first line - Nettle & Bone by T. Kingfisher

Droids- audiobook/ebook- The Wind Through The Keyhole by Stephen King

Great List!

I did just read Little Women and that was it. I may go on in the future, but it was a buzzword book for April, of course I am behind on that. But I'm thinking as long as I do those prompts through out the year and not specifically in the month they are assigned, I will complete them all at some point. I think you said you were doing it that way too?

I do hope to make a spread in my journal for the read-a-thon, I am so behind in my journal. I need to catch up. I'm hoping to catch up and do a blog post about that, plus add a book-oply board at some point!

I read Hatchet with my son when he was probably about G's age. It was fun and then we watched the movie. I think the movie is called A Cry in the Wild?

I don't have FOMO about Malazan. Maybe one day I will change my mind and read it. Just not feeling it these days.

Excited to read Hobb and Kulti with you!! Oh and Boneshard and Keyhole too!
