Monthly wrap-up: May

So May was a big month! I started a blog! I spent the first two weeks jetlagged! I spent 3 weeks with a constant headache! I fainted at the Doctor! And I bought and read a lot of books…

Books I read

I read 10 books this month, which I’m very happy with, especially considering I spent pretty much the entire month going to bed by 9pm because I was either extremely jetlagged or headachey or work stressed. Of those 10, I gave five of them a massive 5/5 stars! There were a few I wasn’t quite as happy with, but all in all, a very fun reading month.

The Poppy War – R.F. Kuang (5 out of 5 stars)

Other Words for Smoke – Sarah Maria Griffin (3.75 out of 5 stars)

Shadowscent – P.M. Freestone (3 out of 5 stars)

Rosewater – Tade Thompson (3 ou of 5 stars)

The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet – Becky Chambers (5 out of 5 stars)

The Fever King – Victoria Lee (5 out of 5 stars)

Darius the Great is Not Okay – Adib Khorram (5 out of 5 stars)

Wicked Saints – Emily A. Duncan (4 out of 5 stars)

Love from A to Z – S.K. Ali (5 out of 5 stars)

We Hunt the Flame – Hafsah Faizal (4 out of 5 stars)

Books I received

Convergence – Marita Smith (This was a book a lovely author I work with in my day job passed to me and I’m very excited to read! I’ve heard really great things about all the science in this book).

Shatter the Sky – Rebecca Kim Wells (Apparently the NetGalley gods were looking down on me for this one and I managed to snag an eARC of this incredible sounding book!)

What Makes Us – Rafi Mittlefehldt (Another NetGalley, my first approved request on NetGalley! I won’t lie, it was very much the cover which called to me. Rainbow + protest = my kind of book).

That’s it for my May wrap-up, let me know what you think about any of the books in this wrap-up!

Paws out,

Rach + Draco
