May started out as a really slow reading month, but then I went on a trip for work, and man, I ended up getting a lottttt of reading done while on my trip! I ended up reading 8 books in May, and I actually really enjoyed most of them! Read on to see what I read and what I’m planning on reading in June!
In May, I read:
Crooked Kingdom 5/5 stars – Ahhhhh I loved this book so much and I don’t understand why it took me so long to get to Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom!
Finale 5/5 stars – Finale was the perfect ending to the Caraval series and I loved it so much. Be on the lookout for a review soon- I have so many thoughts!
Once a King 4/5 stars – Once a King was a good book- I really enjoy Erin Summerill’s writing, so I definitely enjoyed that aspect of this book!
Illuminae 5/5 stars – This was my 3rd or 4th time starting Illuminae, and I finally got past that sticking point in the book that I wasn’t super into, so as soon as I passed that, I was so crazy into Illuminae and I can’t wait to read Gemina (I’m on hold for it at the library right now!)
Lady Smoke 3/5 stars – Oh man, this book was so disappointing for me- I really liked Ash Princess and I wanted to love Lady Smoke, but I didn’t I’m definitely going to read book 3 when it comes out though.
The Winner’s Curse 4/5 stars – I’ve seen so much about this series all over bookstagram, so when the Winner’s Curse was available as an ebook at my library, I jumped on it. I really enjoyed book 1 and book 2 is already checked out to me at the library.
Meet Cute 4/5 stars – This was my first Helena Hunting book and it was so cute! I really liked all of the characters and sure, the premise isn’t super realistic, but it was fun and cute, and just what I wanted in a book.
The Cursed Sea 3.5/5 stars – This book made me so sad- I had such high hopes and it just seemed as though the author didn’t really know where she wanted the story to go. I loved book 1, and I’m just going to pretend that book 2 never existed…
And now, onto what I’m planning on reading in June! Who knows how many of these books I’m actually going to get to, but we’ll see what can be done!
King of Scars – I’m about a quarter of the way through this book right now, so I gotta finish it!
Aurora Rising – This book is due back to the library really soon, so this is probably my next read.
An Anatomy of Beasts – I’m really excited to read this one since I loved A Conspiracy of Stars
The Girl the Sea Gave Back – I’ve heard mixed reviews for this one, but since I won an ARC from goodreads, I feel like I have to read it this month
The Winner’s Crime – I’m super excited to get to this one since I loved book 1 in May
Gemina – I’m super excited to get to this one too since I loved book 1 in May
The Rest of the Story – I’m a Sarah Dessen junkie (and I have been since like middle school) so I cannot wait to read her new book!
Crown of Coral and Pearl – I have this e-arc from NetGalley, so I should try to finish it this month
The Evil Queen – I’ve been trying to read this since April and so here’s to hoping I actually finish it this month…
That’s it for me for June (for now…) what all are y’all planning on reading this month?
