May Wrap Up and June TBR!

A Little Update!


Hey guys! It had been a long time since I have written one of these and I'm so sorry. I've just been busy with work and school that I haven't had a lot of time to read. However, I'm home for break and that should all change! Also I'm going to try to do better next semester with uploading and such because I really do like book blogging and I just want to keep growing as a bookblogger.

Anyway, Now Onto My Wrap Up for May!


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
In the month of May, I read a total of three books and I enjoyed them all. Some more than others, but they all were good. These books include Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning, Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, and Severance by Michael Pristsos and Jessica Mastorakos.

 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Darkfever was a great start to a series about the fae and it has unique ideas involving the fae world trope. It had good characters and great world building. I really liked it and I will definitely continue with the series. I really liked the dynamic between Mac, the main character, and Jericho, a mysterious stranger that she needs the help of in order to survive this new world. I also highly enjoyed their banter.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2
Scarlet, on the other hand, is the second novel in the Lunar Chronicles series. It is a science fiction retelling of classic fairy tales that drags me into the story within a few pages. I love the writing as well as the characters. Also I really loved the new characters that were introduced to the series and I seriously ship a new pairing! I also happen to love Wolf and he is my favorite. I have no shame in admitting that.

TBD
Lastly, I read Severance, which was a book that got sent to me for review from the author for free in exchange for an honest review. I thought the story was good and I liked it, however, it did have some flaws such as it being a slow paced book. If you're interested in a more in depth review, I will link it below. 😃

While I did finish three books this month, I did start two more books that I did not get to finish. These include Dreamcatcher by Stephen King and Soul Meaning by A.D Starrling. I have read about 30% of Dreamcatcher and I'm working on finishing the audiobook for Soul Meaning in order to write a review for it. That should be out every soon and I'm enjoying both novels a lot!
TBD

That is all I read in the month May! What did you read in May?



Now Onto My June TBR!


TBD
TBD
This month I plan to finish Soul Meaning and Dreamcatcher. Soul Meaning will be getting a review and I can't wait to share all my thought with you guys! After these two books, I plan on picking up two more books I received for review, which include Lost Time: The Adventure Begins by Norbert Monfort and Pawned Queen by S.K. Thomas. I hope to finish these this month or early next month and have their reviews up soon after finishing them.


What do you plan on reading this month? 

That's all for this wrap up and TBR! I hope you enjoyed it and thank you for reading!

Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney

My Rating: 3/5 stars Average Rating: 4/5 stars Format: ebook ISBN13: 9781310806902
I received a free copy in exchange for a honest review from AuthorAmp.com
Night of All Evil was a good gothic horror novel about a witch named Freya that has a dark past that comes back to haunt her and her family. Freya was my favorite character and I really enjoyed reading from her point of view. The thing I liked about her was how she acted in the situations she is placed in. She also is just an interesting person that also happens to be a super powerful witch, which is pretty cool. In fact once I started this novel, I had a hard time putting it down. While I really enjoyed reading the story, the character development was just okay and it was kind of predictable. However, it was still a good read that grabbed my attention and kept me entertained.                                                                                                   Thanks for reading!                                            …

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Tips for All!

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great month. I am super excited since the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon is almost here. I have only done this once, but I learned a lot during that 24 hour period. Now I am going to share my advice with you.

1. Read What YOU Want to Read.

This is incredibly important. If you are not reading something you want to read and your pushing yourself to read it, then put it down and take a break. Read something you want or take a nap. If your doing this, it could led to a reading slump or watching Netflix... I totally did that! Not that there is anything wrong with taking a break! Or watching Netflix...


2. Take Breaks, Even Naps!

This is key to having fun during this read-a-thon! If your eyes start to blur, take a nap. If your hungry or want to watch Netflix for a little bit. Do it! Or you could cheer other people on during the read-a-thon. If you didn't sign up to be a cheerleader, join #TeamRogue and cheer. :D Just do not over work yourself.

Anyone? by Angela Scott

I finished this book in about three hours...
I also tweeted her to see if there would be a sequel...which I want really bad...

"The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….
…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.
Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no choice—he must find her missing brother. Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.
But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed …
