Lit: Uniquely Portable Magic

I tend not to plan my reading out too much, other than reviews that have deadlines and book club commitments. But I've got a trip coming up so, of course, I need to plan on what I'm going to take to read and I've got some NetGalley books I need to make sure I read soon, not to mention all of the ARC's that have been piling up. So a plan needs to be made...mind you, it's a flexible plan. I'm trying to be better about reading what I want and I quite like it so if my plan doesn't suit my mood, it will change. But I really am looking forward to everything on this list!

For May:
Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler for book club
Where Woman Are Kings by Christie Watson
The Canterbury Sisters by Kim Wright
Circling The Sun by Paula McLain

For June:
Misery by Stephen King for a read along hosted by Care of Care's Online Book Club
