Due to the Covid-19 craziness, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get my hands on these books from my usual vendors. I try to support local as much as possible, so if they can’t get the nonfiction and inspiration titles I have on my May TBR, then I’ll just have to wait. Totally not sad about that… except for how much I am.

Little Nightmares by John Shackleford, et. al.
A nine-year old girl named Six is kidnapped from her home and taken to work in The Maw – a surreal underwater resort that caters to the whims of the powerful elite, and where everything is built to towering and frightening proportions.
The Maw is a grim feeding trough for the swollen, corrupted souls of the world. A place where excess is encouraged and dark secrets kept far out of sight.
When an unexpected twist of fate offers her a chance at freedom, Six takes a journey through the bizarre and unpredictable world of The Maw, and catches a glimpse at the corrupt heart of modern happiness, in a thrilling new story that delightfully connects to the deranged video game.
