May was one heck of a month, both in terms of reading and real-life. A lot of things happened this month, including a lot of reading do I am very happy with the amount of books I’ve read!
In terms of blogging, I got a fair amount of posts in there is still one thing that I am setting up, but it probably won’t get published until the summer! This summer is going to hopefully include a lot of blogging because I plan on reading A LOT.
In May I read:
Death and Night by Roshani Chokshi
This was a stunning novella and the perfect prequel to The Star-Touched Queen. If you want more from Maya and Amar you should definitely give this a read. My Full Review.
The Education of Margot Sanchez by Lilliam Rivera
This was a fun and dramatic contemporary set in the Bronx. If your are looking for another book to diversify your shelves I would recommend this! My Full Review.
Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson
This was a creepy and fun story filled with re-tellings in forms you may not have read before. My Full Review.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
I buddy read this with my sisters! It was an intense dark fantasy with some great action, twists and suspense! My review is up and you can look forward to reviews from Kez and Maz soon! My Full Review.
The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye
A long awaited sequel to The Crown’s Game which I read last year and loved! I haven’t posted my review yet but you can look forward to that soon!
Four full books and one novella in total, I would call that a successful month!
Now I was planning to spend some big bucks on May but that didn’t happen! Instead I went on a NetGalley binge!
I was approved four requests this month:
Quincey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson
The Book of Whispers by Kimberley Starr
Scion of the Fox by S.M. Beiko
The Ninth Circle, Book One: Fire by C.A. Harland
I also got supremely lucky and I won a signed copy of Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh!
Then I went to the library and picked up The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye!
No money spent BUT heads up its only a few days into June and I’ve already bought three books!
This is is going to be a very slow month in terms of blogging and reading! I will be sporadic in my posts and interactions with you all so try not to miss (or forget) me.
This month I’ll be reading:
Bentwhistle in A Threat From The Past by Paul Cude
The Kingdom of Oceana by Mitchell Charles
Hearts Are Like Balloons by Candace Robinson
Three is a small goal, hopefully I can make it to all three!!
Alright that is it for me! I have a busy month up ahead but I still look forward to posting (and reading) as much as I can! Let me know what was your favourite book from last month. Your favourite buy/borrow from last month. And your most anticipated read of this month!
