May Wrap Up

DSC_0592

May has been a busy month, which results in my lack of reading progress. Finals took a great deal of my time, but all by all, I still read wonderful books. I was a little ambitious when I posted my May TBR list and let’s face it, I completely failed in reading all of them, but that’s okay, because June is around the corner and I’ll get a second chance. Let’s dive into them and hope June will be great, too.

The Art of Being Normal | Lisa Williamson | 🌟🌟🌟

One of my best friends, Rianne, recommended this to me. To be honest, I’ve never read a LGTBQ book before and was definitely not disappointed. I’m new to the LGTBQ genre and this was a great book to start with. It shows the difficulties of becoming who you truly are, even if that means changing the way you were born. I was so glad to have read it, and yes I only gave it three stars, that doesn’t mean I enjoyed it. It was funny and loving and hard. It shows that this world is cruel and people can’t always be understanding. If you want to read a LGTBQ themed book, I definitely recommend this.

City of Bones | Cassandra Clare | 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I’ve been waiting to read this book for so long and heard so many good things about it. Now I’m saving my money to buy the sequels. I mean, hello? I JUST WANT TO CONTINUE.Β Which is somehow understandable, because Clare makes you want more.

A Court of Mist and Fury | Sarah J. Maas | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 x10000

Also known as the reason why I had difficulties picking up another book. Also known as the reason why I can’t stop thinking about Feysand and why I want to have the sequel right now. This book slaughtered me. It ripped me apart. I’m not even kidding. It was so beautiful and seductive and incredibly put into words. I still can’t find enough words to describe it. I so recommend this. You will not regret it. If you will, forget what I said. READ IT.Β 

Cruel Beauty | Rosamund Hodge | 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Cruel Beauty was a perfect mix of darkness and Beauty and the Beast. Retellings are one of my favorite genres and it barely disappoints. I just finished this book and have to gather my thoughts together, because that last chapter still has me in its grip and I can’t stop thinking about it.
Hate to love relationships are my favorite and Hodge described it beautifully.

In conclusion

May has been a busy month, but besides thatΒ I still read some pretty great books. One 5-star book and two 4-star books, which is kind of amazing. With June coming around the corner, I have more time to read and perhaps I’ll even make some progress with my reading challenge.

Have you read any amazing books this month? Tell me about it!
