Monthly Wrap Ups

May Wrap Up

I didn’t realize how many books I read in May…, but it is a bit more than usual because I had a week break between Spring semester and Summer semester for college. I wrote a little one to two sentence review for each.

  • A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas (4 ⭐)
    • I know there’s some mixed feelings about this book, but personally I enjoyed it! I expected it would be a book filled with fluff and I wasn’t disappointed.
  • Circe by Madeline Miller (4 ⭐)
    • This is probably one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read.
  • An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (5 ⭐)
  • A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir (5 ⭐)
    • I could go on and on about how much I love this book series, but definitely one I would recommend to everyone! I’m so excited for Reaper at the Gates to release next month!
  • Found by Ashley Hohenstein (4 ⭐)
    • The plot for this book is promising! I didn’t enjoy that characters all that much though and I’m not a huge fan of instalove and love triangle tropes.
  • Threats of Sky and Sea by Jennifer Ellision (4 ⭐)
    • I saw so many parallels between this book and the Throne of Glass series, so that is the general audience I would recommend this book for. I didn’t care too much for the protagonist though.
  • Dark Designs by Stefanie Spangler (1 ⭐)
    • I didn’t care too much for this book, but it was a quick read. It was just confusing and I did not feel any type of connection to the characters in the story.
  • Resonance by Jennifer Greenhall (4 ⭐)
    • Okay, I lied I can get behind the instalove trope when it makes sense. This book definitely focused heavily on the romance with the action serving more as subplot.
  • Demon: Brimstone and Blood by Ellis Everley (2⭐)
    • I never know how to feel about short stories. Every time I read them, I just get left with questions and confusion.
  • The Young Elites by Marie Lu (3 ⭐)
    • Due to the hype over this book, I thought it would be better. It was okay and since I like some of the supporting characters I’ll probably read the rest of the trilogy, but I am in no hurry to.
  • The Cruel Prince by Holly Black (4 ⭐)
    • I really enjoyed this book! I wish the Wicked King would release sooner, because I am pretty curious about how things will play out.
  • Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall (2 ⭐)
    • This book was basically all sexual tension with some plot.
  • Furyborn by Claire Legrand (5 ⭐)
    • I LOVED this book! I could go on and on forever, but it is one of my favorite reads and I’ll be lowkey in pain waiting for the next addition to this trilogy.
  • Failsafe by Anela Deen (4 ⭐)
    • This was cute if you like the human-teaching-robot-boy-how-to-love trope. (Is that a real trope?)
  • Scythe by Neal Shusterman (5 ⭐)
    • This book made me contemplate death and morality at 3 AM. Read it.
  • The princess saves herself in this one by Amanda Lovelace (3 ⭐)
    • Maybe I just wasn’t in the mood for this type of poetry, but I’m not sure what I was expecting. Some poems resonated with me and some I just felt meh about.
  •  Ruthless Magic by Megan Crewe (4 ⭐)
    • It was definitely refreshing to read about a POC female protagonist. It was like if The Hunger Games and Harry Potter had a child then made Hermione and Draco the main characters.
