This month has flown by! I can’t believe tomorrow’s the first day of June. I kept busy with book club shenanigans (check out Between Two Shelves!) and fun birthday adventures. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to touch and feed and make lots of heart-eyes at a baby sloth named Vivien. JUST LOOK AT HER. 😍
But anyway… I read five books this month, and boy, did I give a lot of five-star reviews! 🤗
Here are my ratings for this month’s reads:
- A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas ⭐️⭐️
- The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Circe by Madeline Miller ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
NOTE: I did not review Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone since 1) it’s a re-read, and 2) I’m planning to write something about all seven books after I’ve concluded my re-read of the series — probably at the end of the summer. I also did not review Circe, mostly because I loved it so much that I couldn’t figure out how to translate my feelings into actual words. So, consider this a very, very short review: PLEASE READ IT RIGHT NOW, OKAY? ❤️
Did I read everything on my May TBR?
Did I read anything not on my May TBR?
I actually stuck to my TBR this month, which might be a first for me…? 😂
What were my favorite reads of the month?
My absolute favorite read of the month — and definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year — was Circe. But it was a great month for five-star reads! I enjoyed nearly everything I read.
What were my least favorite reads of the month?
Without a doubt, A Court of Frost and Starlight was my biggest disappointment this month. 😐 I had such high hopes for it, but alas… It just wasn’t the book for me.
