May 2016 Wrap Up

May 2016 Wrap Up!

May started off really bad in terms of reading because of AP testing but it quickly picked up and I was able to read 9 books!

First up this month I read the Distance Between Us

This is by far my favorite Kasie West book! I really enjoyed myself reading this and related to the main character a lot. I have a review up that you can click here to see.

My best friend recommended that I read the False Prince and so I did. I liked it! And I gave it a 4 out of 5 star rating on goodreads.

I re read Red Rising and Golden Son in anticipation for Morning Star and I absolutely LOVE this trilogy! 5 star rating for all of them and I have review up for all of them too.

Golden Son Review

Morning Star Review


I also read the Unexpected Everything and Read Player One, which has been on my TBR for nearly a year now. Reviews will be going up for both of these in the next week or so, but I highly enjoyed them both and I think will be giving them in the 4 or 4.5 star range rating.


For school this month I had to read the Kite Runner and The Alchemist. I absolutely loved the Kite Runner, 5 star rating for sure, but I downright hated the Alchemist and would probably give it like a 1.5 star rating. My teacher told me that I would love the Alchemist but for me it felt like a novel that preached religion and destiny and I just disliked it. It’s not even that I dislike books about religion necessarily because I’ve loved other books like this. I don’t even know why I hated this one so much 😦

And now I have a test on it next week and since I loathed the book this test is going to be hard for me, on top of the fact that it’s supposed to be one of the hardest tests we take on a book.

So that’s it! What books have you read this month?? How far behind or ahead are you of your Goodreads challenge? I’m 9 books behind so far, but hopefully I’ll be able to catch up in the summer months of July and August.

    • Yeah somehow I’m always behind no matter what, probably because I’ve set such a high number of books to read this year. Oh that’s good then! I always like when I’ve had a pretty good month of reading and have enjoyed the books for the most part ;P

      • Yeah and it’s the most books I’ve read in a month so far this year and it’s caught me up to my goodreads goal which I was previously behind on so I’m super happy.
