May was filled with a bit of excitement for me, but unfortunately not the pleasant kind. But, we did have blessings mixed in amongst the chaos. I’m hoping June brings only the pleasant sort of surprises.
Here’s the books I picked out for my May TBR. I know I mentioned at the beginning of the month that this was a very loose TBR. I really didn’t expect to stick to it, but I love putting together lists anyways. Let’s see how many I actually read ~
I actually read each of these! I already have my review posted for The Bookish Life of Nina Hill HERE and Love and Other Words HERE. Both were really good 4 star reads for me. I also loved Love Lettering (4.75 Stars) and Grip (4 1/2 Stars) and hope to have those reviews up soon.
My hold on Pumpkinhead finally came through, BUT it wasn’t compatible with my kindle. So, I’ll have to wait until I can get my fingers on a physical copy. I know I’ll enjoy that format best anyway. The Forbidden Man was the physical copy I was hoping to pick up after reading All the Stars and Teeth, BUT I am STILL reading All the Stars and Teeth. I’m nearing the finish line with it at least. I did read Between the Notes and really enjoyed it (4 1/2 Stars). My review can be found HERE. And I just picked up Sick Kids in Love yesterday, but I haven’t yet started it.
I also didn’t get to Dance of Thieves, Saint Anything, or The Perfect Escape. It wasn’t that I wasn’t feeling them. I just ran out of time. I’m so hoping to get to them soon. I just finished Fallen Fourth Down (3 !/2 stars). I really enjoyed the book until the ending. I wasn’t happy with the ending at all, so unfortunately it really killed my overall enjoyment.
I actually tried to pick up Cold-Hearted Rake, but the library is no longer holding a kindle copy. They are holding an audiobook, so maybe I can listen to that soon. I didn’t have the time to pick up The Loneliest Girl in the Universe or Love Her or Lose Her. I did get The Traitor’s Kiss finished yesterday. It was a strong 4 star read for me. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series!
So, I got 7 of the 16 books on my May TBR read.
Now, here’s a list of other books I read this month ~
I read a total of 21 books in May. That’s two more than my whopping 19 last month. And 3 of these were over 700 pages. So, I had a pretty awesome reading month, especially considering I haven’t been rushing through these. I’ve been trying to savor them. BUT, when they’re really good, I kinda can’t help myself. LOL!
~ Favorite of the Month ~
This book was everything I hoped for and more! If you’re a Maas fan, I can’t imagine you not loving this one. I’ve even been seeing tons of reviews from those that don’t like ACOTAR or ToG that are enjoying this one. It’s definitely perfect for those that enjoy the perfect mix of fantasy and romance!
