May Wrap Up 2019!!

Good hello, friends! Welcome back to my blog! Today I have my wrap up for May! I managed to finish nine books! I’m really pleased with that because these were not all walks in the park, if you know what I mean (if not you’ll find out!!).

Let’s Just Jump Into It!


The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner

Once again, Turner wrote beautifully. I only wish there wasn’t so much past tense, It felt like so much of the action happened ‘off screen’, you know? I love these characters so much because most of the pages are spent on them where you really can build a connection and their politics in the kingdoms. Goodreads

3 Stars

Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler

This was for educational purposes. I was curious to hear his twisted ideology from the horse’s mouth. It was interesting, I guess. I skimmed a lot and DNF’ed it with two hours left of the audiobook. Goodreads

1 Stars

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

I was so excited for this book. I feel like I would have enjoyed it a little more if I wasn’t so hyped for it and setting a little too high expectations. But there was some great twists and turns that were totally unexpected. Oh, how I missed getting new stories in this world, such creativity. goodreads

3.75 Stars

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare

This is definitely the weakest play I have read so far by Shakespeare. I found it wasn’t as funny as Midsummer Night’s Dream. Also, I found myself annoyed with how the female characters were treated and acted. I know I shouldn’t sweat it since it’s from another time, but the other plays didn’t annoy me, this one did. Goodreads

3 Stars

 

Scientific Advertising by Claude C. Hopkins

Another book for educational purposes. Goodreads

2.5 Stars

Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare

That’s right I read two plays in May! I felt I had to since I didn’t like Twelfth Night very much. This was much better; better characters and plot. Some good female characters with a few powerful speeches too! Goodreads

4.5 Stars

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

When I first started this I wasn’t sure if i was enjoying it or not. The style of writing threw me off at times, but as I read more and Wein included a different POV, I was loving it. Such a lovely story about friendship. Goodreads

4.75 Stars

A Torch Against The Night by Sabaa Tahir

Great story and characters, just as strong as the first book. I can’t wait to read the third book. Although, I didn’t love that the magic system had limitations for the sake of moving the plot along. These magic limitations would appear without much in the way reason, maybe it’ll be explained in the next book? Goodreads

3 Stars

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

I’m a little surprised that The Silent Patient is Michaelides’ first book. It was so well written with tension that had me at the edge of my seat. It was a strong case for the powerful impact mental health has on people. I just loved how I was kept guessing the whole time, and a little bit of a detective aspect to it too. Goodreads

5 Stars

As always, thanks for reading!
