May TBR List + Upcoming Releases

I've been going a little rogue for my reading this year and not sticking to my TBR at all. In the Goodreads group I mod for (here), we have a Pick-It-For-Me challenge where you list 5 books and someone else picks your next book. I've been using my TBR jar to pick 5 and then letting someone pick which of those to read next. My TBR jar consists of all the books on my TBR for Jan-April and also contains all the series I'm in the middle of right now. So if I draw a series, I read the next book in it. I had a much more successful reading month in April finishing 6 books, so I'm hoping to continue the momentum in May. I really want to make a dent in the leftover section!
