May Wrap Up

Friday 6 June 2014

Last month I read nine books. One more than I did in April, and that was with exams and revision (because I actually did some this year, believe it or not). Again, I managed to cut a chunk out of my TBR pile - only to then add more too it by buying a bunch of new books - which I'm very pleased with, as some of these books had been sat there for quite some time.

What I read 

Overall, I'd say this was a good reading month for me. I caught up on some series - even finished two - and started another one. I read a few more standalone novels like I've been wanting to, and I even managed to squeeze in an adult book (it wasn't very long, but you get the idea). Some of these books were fairly chunky but I got through them in good time with minimal complaints. As far as rating and enjoyment goes, this was a rather mixed bunch of books, with Destined being my least favourite and earning a one star rating, and A Monster Calls being my most favourite and earning a five star rating. However, I'd say that I did read more good books than bad books in May - that or I was being generous with my ratings.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

Bunheads by Sophie Flack
Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Night World Volume 1 by L.J. Smith
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Awakened by P.C. and Kristin Cast
Extras by Scott Westerfeld

Destined by P.C. and Kristin Cast

Let me know what you read in the month of May, whether you've read any of these books and what you thought of them, or just any thoughts you have on what I read.


  1. I only read 1 book during May :( and bought a whole load of them :p I've read Clockwork Princess and City of Glass :) I enjoyed them both and I have the HON series on my shelves but haven't gotten around to reading them yet :/

    1. What did you read? I thought Clockwork Princess and City of Glass were okay, they were too long though in my opinion. The HON series is pretty easy and quick to get through once you start it so good luck :) I've got to read book 10 next so if you get to that I'd love to discuss it!

    2. I read The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead :) Ya sure :) I'd love to discuss it with you :)

  2. Hi!!!
    I nominated you for the Liebster Award. Here's the link for all the info :)

    1. Thanks! It'll take me a few weeks to get it up on my blog though, because I have a ton of posts scheduled already. :)

    2. That's grand :p And no problem :)


Got a thought or an opinion? I'd love to hear it.
