Ahhh, the weather is finally getting nicer. May is my favourite month, I feel like you can actually enjoy the weather here in good ole Canada, haha.
I just want to read all of the books! I can’t get enough. If I wasn’t on a book buying panned I would be there, at my favourite book store today soaking up the sunshine through the windows while smelling each book. But instead I’m here at my computer reminding myself that I have a sh*t ton of books here, at home to read still.
Here’s a list of books I regret not reading yet:
Believe it or not, I haven’t read Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adevemi yet. Everyone on BookTube and Bookstagram have been singing such high praise for this first book in the series. This one is a high fantasy about Zélie and her mother who can summon forward souls. One night magic disappears from their world. The king is out for answers and Zélie has one chance to bring it back. Goodreads
Next book on my list, The Rook by Daniel O’Malley. I borrowed this one from a friend about a month ago and I haven’t touched it. I found the audiobook on Scrbd, but I don’t want to give the book back until I’m able to see if the audiobook is any good. Guess what?!? This is another fantasy! I don’t have any idea what this one is about all at. Someone on BookTube I follow said it was good and my friend who isn’t quite taken with reading as I am, loves it. So more or less, I’m going to read it based on her recommendation and I hope I like it. Goodreads
Of course I have to include Throne of Glass by Sarah L. Maas. I technically haven’t started it, but I am going to this weekend! I’m excited to see what’s all the hype about. My friend Brittany from Bookstagam highly recommended it, I’m pretty sure it’s her favourite book, so I thought I would like give it a try. Other books just keep getting in the way, like always! I don’t know much about it, you might have noticed, but I like going into books almost completely blind. I just know that there’s a chick assassin who’s a badass and an orphan..? YUP, that’s it, haha! Goodreads
Fourth up is Dread Nation by Justina Ireland. I came across Dread Nation on BookTube in someone’s video about new releases they were excited for before it was out. She described it during the Civil War with zombies.; SOLD! That’s all I need, take my money!! Other than her and one other person, no one I have seen has been talking about this one. If you have read it, please let me know what you think. Goodreads
Thanks for reading; you are lovely and wonderful. If you’re curious, I started reading Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen (Goodreads). On May 8th, I finished Wonder Women (click here for more), which was about 25 women in history that was cool. I also, finished on Tuesday The Princess Saves Herself In This One By Amanda Lovelace (click here for more). Also, what a fun last name, Lovelace.
Be sure to come for more reviews and other fun content!
