May Wrap Up


Because I enjoyed last month’s Monthly Wrap Up so much, I thought I’d make it a monthly occurrence. And if I’m doing it on Instagram, why not make a blog post out of it?

Books Read This Month:

In total, I read 10 books this month (7 physical copies and 3 e-books), which I’m quite pleased with, because as I had school and exams to prepare for for the majority of the month to distract me from reading.

  1. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi - 4/5 - I really enjoyed this book, but felt like nothing really happened. It was building up to something that was non-existent. It definitely felt like a filler for the series!
  2. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi - 4.5/5 - I loved this book so much, but felt like the ending was rushed. It finished too abruptly - I want more!
  3. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz - 4/5 - I really enjoyed this book, but the ending was too rushed. Nothing happened until the end, which was too short.
  4. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli - 4/5 - This was such a cute book! I really enjoyed it because it was so sweet and full of fluff.
  5. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater - 3.5/5 - This was very slow to begin with, but towards the end it picked up and I began to really enjoy it. I also really liked the characters.
  6. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - 3.5/5 - I enjoyed this book because it was so beautiful, but I felt like it was a waste of time because so little happened.
  7. Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill - 4.5/5 - This book was so hard hitting. It really impacted me and changed my view on the way we see ourselves and society.
  8. Deviate by Tracy Clark (sent from publisher) - 3/5 - I really liked the concept of this book, but the pacing was so slow so I couldn’t really enjoy it.
  9. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black - 3.5/5 - I enjoyed reading this book, but felt like nothing really happened. The ending didn’t give any closure and things were wrapped up badly.
  10. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (currently reading) - 3.5/5 (so far) - I am enjoying this book, but found it slow at the start and hard to get into. The world building is truly magical though.

Books Hauled:
I only obtained 7 books this month (3 were gifts) which mainly due to me being broke from last month’s spending! I got:
  1. The Raven Boys
  2. Only Ever Yours (not featured because I forgot to add it in the picture!)
  3. All the Light We Cannot See
  4. How to Build a Girl
  5. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
  6. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
  7. The Bone Season

  1. Nice wrap up! I love All The Light We Cannot See :) My favorite read was probably Jane Eyre By Charlotte Brontë took me forever to read, so it was super satisfying it to finally finish it this May (not to mention Jane and Mr. Rochester are the ultimate OTP c:)!

    1. Thankyou! All the Light We Cannot See was so beautiful. I'm glad you enjoyed Jane Eyre! Guiltily, I still haven't read that one... I'll have to get to it soon! :)

      Thanks for dropping by :)
