Hi guys! I finished school today, so I should be posting more!(Finally!) So here is my May Wrap-up:

 

The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by: Leslye Walton-I didn't finish this book because, it was terrible. I don't know if this counts as part of the wrap up, but I thought I would include it, since I wasted valuable time on it.

1 of 5 stars

 

The Night Circus by: Erin Morgenstern- This was probably one of my favorite books of the month, it was so fabulous!!! The writing style is intoxicating and magical! So are the characters!

5 of 5 stars

 

The Nowhere Emporium by: Ross MacKenzie- This was my first e-galley read! I enjoyed this book. This book is very similar to The Night Circus in writing style and some of the details, but it is directed toward middle graders.

4 of 5 stars

 

The Inheritance by: Louisa May Alcott- This was my classic pick of the month. This was one of Louisa May Alcott's first novels. She was 17 when she wrote this book. I loved it so much! This was a re-read for me.

4 of 5 stars

 

Manga Classics: The Scarlet Letter by: Stacy King- This was my first Manga read and I really like it. It was slightly confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, it is a light and easy read.

3 of 5 stars

 

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by: Mary Ann Shaffer- The format for this book was fabulous. I love the letter's being written back and forth. I fell in love with Guernsey along with the main character. All of the characters were well done. It gets a little long winded near the middle, but it picks up.

4 of 5 stars.

 

Heir of Fire by: Sarah J Maas- This book was to die for! It is one of those books that you finish and you just sit there for while just contemplating everything that happened. The next book comes out this year and I am so stoked!

4 of 5 stars.

 

Stolen by: Lucy Christopher- This book caused so many conflicting emotions. It was another book that you have to stop and think about once you finish it. I struggled to understand her kidnapper and I could never come to a decision on if I understood him or not.

4 of 5 stars.

 

Cinder by: Marissa Meyer- This books was just okay. It is over-hyped and was boring at times.

3 of 5 stars.

 

Scarlet by: Marissa Meyer- I didn't finish this book. It just couldn't keep me interested, it bored me.

2 of 5 stars.

 

Paper Towns by: John Green- This book wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. It wasn't bad it just wasn't up to the level of The Fault in Our Stars. But overall I enjoyed it.

3 of 5 stars.

 

I suppose I did more reading than I thought I would at the beginning of the month! Yay me! Well, I hope you enjoyed this and as always, thank you so much for reading!

 

Have a fabulous day lovelies!

 

Yours truly, signing off!
