TBR & Wrap-Ups

May Wrap-Up & Favorites!

I only read 4 books in May. I’m slightly disappointed with this. But I also know that I’ve had a really hard time job hunting and interviewing. I’ve also been trying really hard to up my Bookstagram skills. It’ll all work out.

I don’t know what I can say about this book, that someone else hasn’t said yet. It’s great. The writing is fantastic. I love the funny moments thrown in with the difficult times and how that balance perfectly. I loved the main characters and the side characters. I loved the message. Just listen to everyone and go read this debut novel already.

180 seconds180 Seconds by Jessica Park – Goodreads – 4/5 Stars

I read this in one day. The meeting of the couple put me off a little bit. Like everything was weird about the 180 seconds. But after that I really enjoyed it. It hurt my heart, It made me smile. It was just a really good New Adult book.


A Court of Wings and Ruin By  Sarah J Maas – Goodreads – 3.75/5 Stars

ACOMAF is still the best. I loved the character development in this, but the ending was way too convenient. It’s hard to wrap up a series, especially one this well loved. I just hate that the beginning was great, the middle was boring, and the ending was rushed. It was an emotional roller coaster towards the end though. I would still suggest that you read this series though. If it’s your thing, of course!

I just couldn’t get into this to start out with. I felt bad for Lo and his addiction. But she was so over dramatic at times. I skimmed a lot of the middle. I did almost cry towards the end. I’ve actually dated a guy that was a borderline alcoholic, so it kind of hit close to home. Maybe that’s why I didn’t like. I want to read more about her sister Rose and Connor to be honest. And about Ryke. I liked the side characters way more than I like our main female. Which usually never happens to me in a New Adult book.

I also participated in my first readathon! It was BookBuddyathon! I really loved doing it! Here are the posts, if you missed them!
