May is a month I have been waiting for when it comes to reading. Two of the books on my reading list have been on my mind for awhile and one releases this month. April is gone and now it is time to discuss my May book choices.
I wanted to let you know that my book format from now on will be one poetry book, one graphic novel and one novel every month. I figured that not putting much pressure on myself to read a certain amount of poetry or novels will make my reading experience more freeing. Reading is one of my favorite hobbies and the main reason is because there is no pressure but just fun while enjoying stories.
words from a wanderer by alexandra elle
Words From A Wanderer has been on my TBR list for the longest. Alex Elle is an Instagram Influencer and poet. She has written books about self esteem, motivation and more. I wanted to grab her poetry and affirmation book to see what the fuss is all about. I have heard nothing but good things but I want to see for myself how her writing style has captivated so many. Words From A Wanderer is a book that is a collection of notes and poems that I cannot wait to devour.
According to Amazon, Words From A Wanderer is about, "a timeless and beautiful collection of #anote2self affirmations. This book of gems was first published in 2013 as a collection of notes and love poems. For the three year anniversary, WFAW has been redesigned, re-edited and rereleased. It is now a book of 62 #anote2self daily affirmations that readers can carry with them easily."

With the fire on high by elizabeth acevedo
With The Fire On High has been at the top of my list to be read for 2019. Elizabeth Acevedo wrote The Poet X and I read her book in a matter of 24 hours. I liked the writing style of Acevedo's previous book that I decided to patiently (and eagerly) wait for her new book With The Fire On High. The book is supposed to consist of her previous writing style of poetry, stanzas and unique form. I cannot wait to speak on this book at the end of May. By the way, it releases on May 7th.
According to Amazon, With The Fire On High is about "Ever since she got pregnant freshman year, Emoni Santiago’s life has been about making the tough decisions—doing what has to be done for her daughter and her abuela. The one place she can let all that go is in the kitchen, where she adds a little something magical to everything she cooks, turning her food into straight-up goodness."

The best we could do by thi bui
The Best We Could Do By Thi Bui was recommended through multiple blogs when it came to diverse graphic novels. I love the emotional story that this book will be telling alongside images. Thi Bui is not an author I am familiar with but I am excited to read such a captivating memoir.
According to Amazon, The Best We Could Do is about an "emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves."

The three books I chose for May are something I can admit I am thrilled to read. I plan on speaking on the books in mini reviews at the end of the month. I hope that you come to my site in the future to read my thoughts.
