Hey bookworms! I decided I’d get to work on my May Wrap-up tonight since I am a bit awake. In the month of May I read 17 books (if I counted right)! Wow that is amazing! I haven’t realized how much I’ve read lately. I been feeling a little slumpy lately, but that is a conversation for another post. So in May I read: 6 mangas/graphic novels, 3 audio books, 1 short story, and 7 novels. I know I have mentioned some of these in Readathon wrap-ups: for RYBSAT and Bout of Books, so I will try not to be too repetitive with those! I will start with what I go in order of what I read first in the month and as always links to Goodreads pages are in the title.
May Wrap Up
1. Out of Time by Jen McLaughlin
This book was a 4 out of 5 stars for me. I don’t want to say more because this is a sequel and I don’t want to spoil anyone!
2. The Heir by Kiera Cass
This was also a 4 out of 5 for me! I have a lot to say on this book because I know a lot of people had issues with it and I did too in the beginning, so my review will be a bit in defense of it which I am still working on it. I kind of need to outline my points for this one, so I don’t forget my reasons. It will have spoilers, so be warned if you haven’t read it. I will really try to get it up by the end of this week.
3.Pokemon Black and White, Vol. 3 by Hidenori Kusaka
4 out of 5 stars
4. Pokemon Black and White Vol 4 by Hidenori Kusaka
4 out of 5 stars
5. Pokemon Adventures Vol 4 by Hidenori Kusaka
4 out of 5 Stars
6. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
This book was a 5 out of 5 stars for me! I know a lot of people complain it was confusing, but for me it was easy to follow it might have been the format since I listened to the audio book. I like that we didn’t have an all good heroine and that is what helped me become so invested in the characters. Which was a really good feeling because I have been struggling to connect to characters.
7. Recitatif by Toni Morrison
This was a 3 out of 5 stars for me I read it for a final and if it wasn’t for a final I probably would’ve liked it more.
8. Time Travelers: Volume One by Caroline B. Cooney
3 out of 5 stars
9. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
5 out of 5 stars I love this series and it will forever be part of my childhood and have a place in my heart.
10. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
4 out of 5 stars the ending wasn’t my favorite.
11. The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
3 out of 5 stars
12. Generation Hope: The Future’s a Four-Lettered Word by Kieron Gillen
5 out of 5 stars it was my favorite X-Men comic I’ve found so far
13. Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
5 out of 5 stars!
14. Behind the Scenes by Dahlia Adler
3 out of 5 stars I am more eager and interested in the sequel honestly
15. Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
5 out of 5 stars this book was really touching especially the end! The themes in this was really sweet and just an interesting insight into movies. If you haven’t picked this up I definitely recommend doing it ASAP!
16. Ouran High School Host Club, Vol. 1 by Bisco Hatori
This was a 4 out of 5 for me since I’ve seen the anime twice. I like the manga to reveal things the anime doesn’t, but it is still really sweet and funny
17. Pokemon Adventures Vol 5 by Hidenori Kusaka
5 out of 5 stars! I really like Yellow and want to see what happens next! I am confused on Yellow’s gender, but I am eager for the next volumes as I slowly collect them.
So bookworms that is all I read in May! What did you read? Do you have any thoughts on these books? Let me know in the comments below please. I am still deciding if I want to do a June TBR since I am currently in a readathon and plan to participate in another one on the 15th. Let me know if you’d like to do one though. Happy reading =)
