I can’t believe we’re already into June! This year is going by so fast. I’m currently on summer break so I’ve got a lot more time to read and, so far, it’s been going well.
We’re going to start with my May wrap up, which wasn’t great, but was better than the month of April. Honestly, now that I’m in the summer months you can be certain that I’ll have longer wrap ups.
May Wrap Up
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I really enjoyed The Hate U Give. It had so much to say and really made an impact on me. Check out our discussion if you’re interested in knowing more of our thoughts.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
We reread ACOMAF in preparation for when we read A Court of Wings and Ruin. I loved rereading it and revisiting all the moments that made me fall in love with this series. For more, check out our discussion.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
I absolutely loved ACOWAR and even weeks after reading it find myself thinking back on the many things that happened in it. Again, this was a discussion, so I suggest you check it out for more thoughts on the story.
A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park
This is probably the strongest story I read this month simply because the main character, Salva Dut, is a real person who actually went through the very awful things that were depicted in the book. I’m giving two links on this. The first is my review, check it out if you think you’re interested in this story. And the second is to the documentary on what Salva Dut is now doing.
The Lie Tree by Fances Hardinge
I’ve spent the last two weeks thinking and talking about how much I love this book. Check out my review for all the love.
The Last Ever After (School For Good and Evil #3) by Soman Chainani
I’m very eager to finish up this series, or at least complete the books that are released in the series. You can be sure that I’ll be reading it no matter what this months.
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
I actually read this on Saturday. When I say I read it on Saturday, I mean that I woke up, started reading and didn’t stop until I found myself on the last page. Look out for my review because boy did I love this book.
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
I’m really excited to read The Upside of Unrequited. I’ve seen so many good reviews for it and with my newfound love for contemporary, I find myself very excited for this story.
The Thousandth Floor by Katherine McGee
Jenn has been yelling at me to read The Thousandth Floor forever now and as I’m working through my bookshelf I thought this would be one a good start to crossing off some of my books.
Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis
Not much to say for this book. I love McGinnis. Everything McGinnis. So it was just a matter of time before I finally read Given to the Sea.
I’m sure all of this will change before the end of the month. But it’s worth a shot. Keep an eye out on Friday for a review on Eliza and Her Monsters! And Let me know what you think of my TBR/wrap up.
