Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality, Stacking the Shelves is a regular feature where I share everything I’ve added to my TBR list in the past month. Each month I look at the books I’ve discovered and tell you what they’re about, where I found them, why I want to read them, what their shelf status is, how high of a priority they are, and finally what my rating prediction is.
Shall we just reacquaint ourselves with the opening line of my April Round-Up? Ahem…. “Let’s be honest, April was… not fun. Hoping for a slightly more optimistic-looking May!”
Six For Sunday is a weekly blog series created by Steph @ ALittleButALot. Prompts for April, May, and June 2020 are now up, and May’s prompts are all about series! Today is the big one: favourite series. Once again, I’m recyling the same series as last week for this Six For Sunday post because I predominantly read standalones, but when I love a series I love a series hard. I’ve also only picked five because even though I’ve read other series and liked them, there weren’t any others that I felt as strongly about as I do these five.

Today I’m talking about my favourite characters from series I’ve read. I also thought it would be fun to include fan art of my faves instead of photos from TV/film adaptations.
I said in my April round-up that I was hoping for a slightly more optimistic May, and boy, am I disappointed.
Technically, this isn’t a tag but a set of ‘ask’ prompts from Tumblr, created by janeandthehivequeen. I’ve been a little de-motivated to write reviews recently but I’ve been reading a lot and working on some reading challenges, so I thought these would be fun questions to answer!

Today I’m sharing six series that I want to read. As I’m not a big reader of series, I’m also including those I want to continue as well as start from the beginning.
