May was not my best reading month. I don’t know why, but 2016, in general, has not been my reading year. Hopefully now that summer is going to go into full-swing I’ll actually be able to read more!
First, I finished, Matilda by Roald Dahl, which was April’s Classic of the Month. After that I only completed 2 books!
– Within Reach by Jessica Stevens \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Room by Emma Donoghue \\⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Within Reach by Jessica Stevens \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I actually didn’t read any classics this month. My goal is to read 2 in June, though!
I got way
too many more books than I planned to! I intended to buy only one book in June. Instead, I got a grand total of sixteen books…and the one book I wanted to buy, I didn’t even get!
Okay, so first off, I set myself up for
failure success, when I decided to go to a library book sale. Unfortunately (or is it luckily?), I only bought 2 books: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, and Little Men by Louisa May Alcott.
Then I went really crazy and decided to go to a thrift store. Paperbacks were $0.40, and hardcovers were $0.90. Needless to say, I went a little crazy!
I also won Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell from a giveaway hosted by Sarah from SimplyReading on Instagram!
I also received my first ever physical ARC from Quirk Books (thank you so much)!! It’s called Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger. Basically, it’s about a recent college grad, Bailey Chen, and her friend Zane, who introduces her into this secret world of monster fighting bartenders. It’s definitely not my typical read, but it sounds very original, so who knows? 🙂
