~ May Wrap Up ~

Hello again dear friends! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on here but I’ve been pretty busy with life and schoolwork and just wishing school would be over lol but I’m back with my May Wrap Up and I’m pretty satisfied with what I read this month! This was the month that my two most anticipated reads of the year came out, and umm yeah I was kind of let down in those areas but it was still a good month. Also! I did try out a new layout for this wrap up because the previous one was kind of all over the place. So without further ado, lets get on with the ten books I read!

So overall, I did enjoy this months reading and honestly I’m still recouping from ACOWAR. I think it put me into a crazily insane book slump because literally NOTHING I read is satisfying me. Sarah J. Maas has ruined me for all books, just like it took me forever to get into another book after Empire of Storms. I did crazily enjoy The Black Witch though, it was so amazing and I hope more people give it a chance! Sorry for not posting my Goodreads reviews, but most of them have “rtc” written on them because I haven’t had time to write any reviews lately. So hopefully when June’s Wrap Up comes around, I’ll have written all the reviews and will have them linked!

Anyways, I hope you all had a great reading month! What was your most favorite read this month and did you buy any awesome books?? I didn’t buy any physical books this month but i’m hoping to buy more in June. Here’s to hoping June is a better month overall!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

    I’M LOVING THIS LAYOUT, SOLOMON! I totally feel you with ACOWAR… I didn’t feel like reading anything after that (or just reading ish too slowly). I hope June will be a better reading month for you! 🙂

    ACOWAR – Um I still haven’t finished it and I honestly don’t care … but I’m so glad you loved it Solly!

    The Black Witch – literally reading it right now and I have ships ❤ Though I'm hoping my original ship becomes a thing (then I will fangirl out!)

    The Host – "tears" may be the most accurate description I have ever heard for that book *cries because my heart is so full just thinking about that book*

    Flame in the Mist – I am so sad to hear this! I was crazy excited for this one but I'm really glad I put off buying this because I'm seeing some rough reviews 😦

    Great post Sol! Hope you have an amazing bookish June ❤
