May Wrap-Up

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 – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

acofas

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 – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

girlmadeofstars

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 – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

threebodyproblem

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 – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

athousandbeginningsandendings

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


How did your month of May go? Did you find any new favorites? Let me know!

Cya! ^^

  1. Hope you are feeling better soon, being ill really sucks.

    I can not wait to read A Thousand Beginnings and Endings. I adore mythology but am not familiar with the Asian mythology that much and want to rectify it ASAP! 😊

    Reading 4 books a month is great, there are months when I don’t read even one or two books. I would not worry about it. Life sometimes happens.

    Have a wonderful time in June! And get better soon.

    1. Thanks, Vera! Ah, yea you know how much I loved A Thousand Beginnings and Endings! 😅 I guess I wouldn’t have minded how many books I read if I didn’t buy so many books this month loll. You’ll see what I mean in my haul post. Again, thank you! ^^

  2. I somehow missed your review for Girl Made of Stars before, but now I must read it immediately! It was never on my radar because the cover looked like a typical happy YA contemporary, but the tackling of heavy issues is something that I’m definitely interested in. 😀
    Hope you feel better soon! ❤

    1. Thanks, Kathy! Haha it’s okay! Tbh I’m still trying to figure out how to review books so I’m hoping I just make a tiny bit of sense for now. 😅 I know what you mean! I went to YallWest but wasn’t interested but my mom got it because she liked the cover lol. Definitely not what I was expecting.
