Hey everyone! I’ve been sick and a little less active than I wanted to be this week, but today I’ll be doing my May wrap-up. Better late than never, right? In May I only read 4 books, but I loved every one of them. I’m hoping I’ll become better at scheduling in June so I can get back to reading more, but for now!
1. A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I was more impressed with this novella than I thought I would be probably because I went into it thinking it would be like a “T.V. special.” I didn’t expect much to happen so I enjoyed it. >Full Review<
2. [ARC] Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
A hard-hitting novel about a girl whose brother has just been accused of rape. I was completely drawn in by this read that makes you ask the question: What would you do if someone close to you was accused of doing something horrible to someone else? >Full Review<
3.The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu, Translated by Ken Liu – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I buddy read this with one of my friends from high school and I’m glad I did because this was super tough to get through, especially because I’m not that familiar with adult science fiction yet. However, this book that has physicists taking part in a VRMMORPG to solve the three-body gravitational problem was definitely worth the extra effort. >Full Review<
4. [ARC] A Thousand Beginnings and Endings by Ellen Oh – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
An anthology of Asian mythology retellings by Asian authors. Ah, if you ran into me on any social media platform in May then you know how intensely I love these stories. This is the collection of short stories my younger self wishes she was able to read. If there’s one book I hope you all read soon, it’s this! >Full Review<
DNF: Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
