May Book Wrap Up

may wrap up

Is it really that time already? I can’t believe how fast May went! This month was my first without school, so I went a little crazy with all the free time (read: binge-watched Grey’s Anatomy and the Harry Potter movies).

I got some good writing in with that time too. I’m writing chapter three of Candy Wrappers (progress has been a bit slow, but I’m happy with how it’s coming along), and I’m writing a story-blog with a friend called Typing Templar (it’s pretty cool, if I may say so myself. You should totally go check it out!).

I also started a podcast called Book Talk, where I share a bit about books I’m reading, new blogs and authors to check out, and some other cool stuff. I have an author interview in the making for the podcast, so I’m pretty excited about that.  And if you leave a review I will be forever grateful (no pressure or anything).

Somehow between all that jazz, I managed to read ten books! I really do amaze myself sometimes. So, without further ado, here are May’s books!

P.S. The titles are links to the original posts.

Pale Highway

Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥

Thoughts: It was an okay book, but it lost me as soon as it started with the talking slugs. Other than that is was very well researched and an interesting read.

Sick

Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥

Thoughts: It was a pretty good book, and I definitely did not see the twist in the end coming. Sick was a little disturbed, but still a very entertaining read.

Sicker

Rating:  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Thoughts: I liked part two of the Sick series much more than the first. It was pretty dark and twisty, but I couldn’t put it down.

In The Highlands

Rating:

Thoughts: There were people in my fifth grade class that wrote better poetry than this. I was very disappointed.

The Ascent of Feminist Poetry

Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Thoughts: This was a truly beautiful book. It used poetry as a tool to reinforce the passages in the book. I think every feminist (and non-feminist) should read this.

The Travelers

Rating:  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Thoughts: This book was layer after layer of deception, secrets, and lies. The further I got the more it sucked me in.

Thirteen Reasons Why

Rating:  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Thoughts: Wow. Just wow. Never before has a book so perfectly captured the chain reaction of a teenagers life.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Rating:  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Thoughts: The book was deep and thoughtful, and the writing was absolutely beautiful. I do, however, feel that the hype surrounding the book is a little much, and I was expecting more than I got.

Shatter Me

Rating: ♥ ♥

Thoughts: I haven’t actually posted the review for Shatter Me yet (the link is to my review on Goodreads), but I was very disappointed with this book. The writing style annoyed me, and there was way to much romance and desperation.

And there you have my reads in the month of May! What books have you read this month?
