May Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(60)

I think I’m the MOST proud of this month considering…well just everything! I read more books than usual (well not that many more but shhhhhh), got more posts up, and even got a pretty good spike in my stats and such! So I think it’s safe to say I had a really great May!

I’m definitely looking forward to June with all of the great new releases coming up and hopefully more time to read!

Books Read This Month: 7

The Seafarer's Kiss by Julia EmberAn Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa TahirThe Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil GaimanEvery Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuireRuthless by Carolyn Lee AdamsAlice by J.M.  SullivanYou Will Know Me by Megan Abbott

I pretty much enjoyed every single book I read this month, really the only ones that were okay were “The Seafarer’s Kiss” and “Ruthless” but the rest were amazing! That’s actually a pretty good month, now that I think about it, where I didn’t hate at least one book. I was definitely the most impressed with “An Ember in the Ashes”, “Every Heart A Doorway”, and “You Will Know Me”.

Reviews Finished This Month:

The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I know, I know I was supposed to read this in May but I’m working on it! So far it’s a pretty decent story but nothing mind blowing yet!

    You read some great titles in May! My favorite is An Ember in the Ashes šŸ˜Š How do you like Niel Gaiman’s book? I haven’t read any book by this author yet. I hope you will have a great reading month in June!! šŸ˜Š

      Thank you, I hope you have a great reading month in June too!
      I definitely loved An Ember in the Ashes too, it was probably my favorite one!
      I actually did enjoy the Ocean at the End of the Lane but it wasn’t my favorite of his books, I’d say “The Graveyard Book” is probably the best one I’ve read so far. If you haven’t read any of his books before that’s an excellent one to start with! šŸ™‚

      Thanks Lauren! I really enjoyed Ember and was sad it took me so long to read it, definitely worth the hype in my opinion! šŸ™‚

    The seafarers kiss and every hearts a door way are way up on my TBR! I can’t wait to read them, you had an awesome reading month! My Blogging was shocking last month but I’m catching up now! My fave book was a tie between Dimple met Rishi and Draekora (I loved nearly all the books I read last month so that was awesome). Great wrap up ā¤

      Thank you so much! Glad to hear you had an awesome reading month as well! I really hope you enjoy “The Seafarer’s Kiss” and “Every Heart A Doorway”! I’m so excited to get to reading When Dimple Met Rishi since I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about it! šŸ™‚
