Man, this is a bit overdue! I had such a busy June that I almost forgot to get this post up. I had such an amazing May with all the great books I read and having my birthday. You bet that I got a bunch of books! Anyways, back to my wrap up!
1) The Diviners by: Libba Bray 5/5 Stars
I had heard a lot about this book from the bookish community and a bunch of my friends had recommended that I read this book. With the daunting size of the book and how many review books that I have to read I never thought I would be able to get to this book for a very long while. Then I found the audiobook through my library, and the rest was history. This book was superb! I loved every second of the audiobook and almost started relistening to it when I finished. Full review to come!
2) Lair of Dreams by: Libba Bray 5/5 Stars
This is the second book in the Diviners trilogy. I also listened to this one on audiobook. This series just keeps getting better and better! I’m frustrated with myself that I waited this long to start this series. Although I am glad I didn’t really have to wait for the third book like a lot of people did when they read the series as it came out. I just really hope that the fourth book doesn’t take as long to come out. Be on the lookout for my review on this book as well!
3) Strange the Dreamer by: Laini Taylor 4/5 Stars
Having just finished the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series the month before I couldn’t help myself but to dive right into this beauty even if it means I have to wait a while for the next book. I was able to snag the UK special edition of this book, and while my wallet hates me my bookshelf sure doesn’t! Review to come!
4) The Accidental Bad Girl by: Maxine Kaplan 3/5 Stars
This was a book that I was able to snag at Yallfest last year. I thought this book was really good for a debut, but it wasn’t really my cup of tea. I won’t go into too much detail as I have a whole review for y’all to blab about this book.
5) Restore Me by: Tahereh Mafi 5/5 Stars
Its been a hot second since I’ve even touched my copies of the Shatter Me series, but it was fairly easy for me to get back into this world. This book starts just days after the events of Ignite Me so you really could just reread the last chapter of that book and be caught up to start this book. I’m hoping to post my review on this book within a week or so.
6) Simon vs. the Homosapiens Agenda by: Becky Albertalli 4/5 Stars
I originally heard about this book way back when it was first published, but for whatever reason I had not had the chance to pick it up until now. Plus I really wanted to go see the movie, but wanted to read the book first. I’m not really a big fan of contemporary books, but this one weaseled its way into my heart and made me love it. Now I really want to read the next book in this series!
I am so happy with all the books that I was able to finish, and I’m ready to see what books the next months bring!
What books did you read way back in May?
