How has your month been? May, for me, was actually pretty good!
First of all, because we finally have sun and warmth! I missed this weather! It always makes me so much happier! Anyone else?
But I also had my last exams at the beginning of the month, so after that, I dedicated myself a bit more to reading, which I couldn’t be happier about! Plus I also kind of bought quite many books this month, so we have a haul coming up next month (I will join it with my birthday haul)!
I’ve read 12 books, 2 of them being manga and 1 graphic novel. I also started 3 other books, which I was aiming to have finished but oh well! I just hope next month is as good for me, as this one was.
- In Real Life
- City of Fallen Angels (Review to come)
- Salt to the Sea
- The Belles (Review to come 2/6)
- Dracula (Review to come 16/6)
- ARC*: Manga Classics: The Jungle Book
- ARC: Manga Classics: Romeo and Juliet
- Romeo and Juliet (Review to come 10/6)
- Clockwork Prince (Review to come 14/6)
- A Court of Frost and Starlight
- The Raven Boys (Review to come 21/6)
The Burning Maze (Review to come 7/6)
TOP 3 books of the month:
The Raven Boys was a very unexpected book for me. I heard amazing things about it but I had no idea i was going to love it this much! It’s such a different fantasy book. The magic in it is not the typical one and the characters are just incredible!
The Belles was a book I was expecting not to like. I normally don’t enjoy books that dwell too much on overall describing everything. But for some reason, I loved this one! It was intense, unique and full of beautiful descriptions!
The Burning Maze was just the best Trials of Apollo book so far and one of the best, and most emotional, Rick Riordan ever wrote!
What were your favorite reads of May? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
In June I still have school but I think I might be able to read most of these, or at least I hope I do! Also, I already started Leah on the Offbeat, Anne of the Green Gables and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets; and An Ember in the Ashes is actually a re-read.
The books I want to try to read in June are:
