Monthly To Be Read (TBR) Pile May 2015: Bewitching Bibliophile

My goal this year is 200 books, if I break that down it comes out to 19 books per month , and  4/5 books a week. Totally doable in my books, so as the proverb says, you can eat an elephant one bite at a time, so here's my first few bites:

Read So Far this Year: 39
TBR Pile : 200
TBR Balance: 161

Monthly Goal: 19
Yeah last month's plan didn't work out the way I wanted it to. I did clean up quite a few of my Blog Tour books (I'm super proud of myself for that) but I didn't really stick with the theme, because as soon as I set it up I didn't feel like reading any of the books on the list. Le Sigh, I'm trying I swear.  So this month is going to be different. This month is going to be short due to BEA being at the end of the month.  And I know from experience I'm not going to get anything read that week.  I'm going to simply pick 10 books from this list, they can complete multiple items off the list.  In () are the books I want to try to read, what happens at the end of the month is anyone's guess.
  • 1 Nora Roberts book I haven't read yet ()
  • Complete a series I have already started (Rogue)
  • Complete a young adult book I started reading (Kiss of Deception)
  • Complete a new adult book I already started ( Vincent Boys)
  • 2 Brenda Jackson novels ()
  • 1 Christine Feehan Novel (Dark Melody/ or Dark Demon)
  • I New to me author
  • Start a new series
  • 10 ebooks ( 7 NetGalley/Edelwiess/Books for Review) 3 Books purchased 
  • Catch up on two series on my bookshelf
  • 5 books from my shelves.
  • 1 book over 300 pages
  • A book that's been on my shelf for more than 3 years
  • A genre I haven't read this year so far
  • A physical ARC from BEA 2014, 2013, 2012,
  • Read a pre-order from April (ASA & Sweet) 
  • Read a newly purchased book from Jan- April 2015
The letter for this month is "B" can be the title or the author's name.  And I can read anything from last month's list that catches my eye.

I think I have made it broad enough not to be bored.  What's on your list this month?? Anything interesting??
