Hello my lovelies! I’m back and catching up on my reviews that I had yet to post, and I thought I’d do a quick May Wrap up post too. I like doing these post simply just to reflect on what I have read. I also don’t post a review for every book that I read anymore so it’s another nice way to chronicle other books that I have read recently.
In May I did read quite a few books. I did pretty well, and I’m sure I read quite a bit more than usual. I was so happy about that as May was a bit of an up and down month for me. I’ve been going through a lot of change, leaving my job and getting ready to start a new one. So to read as much as I did was fab! But here is what I read last month
The Book Club – C.J. COOPER 🌟🌟🌟
I read this as part of my book club and I found it to be an ok book. I didn’t love it, I found it to be quite predictable and the characters to be rather frustrating in places but it was a pleasant enough read.
The Last Straw – Ed Duncan 🌟🌟🌟🌟
[AD/GIFTED] I was gifted a copy of this after reviewing the first book in the trilogy and I really enjoyed to book! American Gangster books aren’t usually my kinda thing, but the way these books are written make for an engaging read with brilliant characters!
The Guest List – Lucy Foley 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I love Lucy Foley. I originally read the Hunting Party and loved it and The Guest List was no exception. It was twisty and engaging and completely unpredictable.
The Witcher – Andrzej Sapowski – DNF
I wanted to read this because I loved the TV Show but I read about a page and knew it just wasn’t for me. I couldn’t get along with the writing style.
Threadneedle – Carri Thomas 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I adored this book! Anything witchy with strong female leads is my kind of thing and I just love how amazing this book was. I was sent a copy via NetGalley to read and I am so so glad that I did!
They Both Die in the End – Adam Silvera 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
This book broke my heart. It’s a beautiful story of living life to the fullest and loving who every you want to love and just living for you. I sobbed at this. Such a powerful, eye-opening, beautiful book.
Imaginary Friend – Stephen Chbosky 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Amazingly creepy – I couldn’t put this down. I was obsessed with finding out what happened. It was a long read but not overwhelmingly long. Every page, every sentence had a point, there was so senseless filler. This book is a work of art.
Bridget Jone’s Diary – Helen Fielding 🌟🌟🌟
I’ve read this book millions of times. It’s such a funny book that is a massive comfort read for me. Will never not love Bridget Jones
Come Again – Robert Webb – DNF
I found this book to be boring and a bit miserable. I read about a quarter of it and just nothing really happened. I just couldn’t get on board with it.
For June I’m not doing a planned TBR list I’m just having a month of mood reading. I do need to read The Switch by Beth O’Leary for my book club which I am excited for. But other than that I am just going to read what ever grabs my fancy!
