Hello, hello! So, May was horrible… Glad that’s over, only 14 more days of essay hell…
I set up a May TBR and surprisingly I read a few of the books I wanted and some I didn’t. Oh well. And I am STILL reading The Deck of Omens and I’m not loving it…
I could barely read in the first week of May, from lack of time, too much stress and just feeling very tired. A few pages here and there and that was it until one day I just decided to start The Grace Year, read it in one sitting, absolutely loved it and suddenly I wanted to read again!
With that being said, I really felt more inclined towards physical books this month because my eyes were frequently exhausted at the end of the day from working at my computer for too long. (There were still a few ebooks, though.)
I didn’t read too many books this month but I loved nearly all of these books in the picture above, especially The Grace Year and Cell. Also loved continuing The Hollows series and the Wings of Fire series (I know I said I wasn’t, but it’s just too damn good). Wolf & Parchment vol. 1 was sadly a huge disappointment, but still not the worst book I read.
I made a good dent in my pending ARCs! I’m super happy about that, it was one of my goals for this month. This year I’ve been requesting way too recklessly and I want to maybe take a break from ARCs this summer and just read my books because I’ve read a lot of disappointing and bad ones, to be honest. Love to Eat, Hate to Eat was my least favorite book of the month.
AND, I read 5 other manga volumes as well.
