May flew by so fast, that we are quite surprised to find ourselves at the threshold of June. No, really. Where did the month go???
We consume so many books in a month, that we don’t always get the chance to talk about all of our favorites. So, we’ve decide to set aside a monthly post specifically for talking about our favorite reads that would have otherwise flown under the radar.
I read a decent number of books this month and out of the pack, there’s “two” I really want to talk about. First, I did a full reread of one of my favorite middle grade series this month, the Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins (yes, that same Suzanne Collins). The books held up surprisingly well to time, and the fact I’ve aged quite a bit since the last time I read them. I honestly would have classified them closer to Young Adult, except for the fact the main characters are 11/12 years old. Other than that though, it was quite enjoyable to be back in the Underland world of wonder and war. Second, and probably more importantly, I picked up and binged Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert this month as well. I absolutely adored Dani & Zafir’s love story and honestly, I binged it so fast that all I have to say about it is incoherent screeching. Anyways, I can’t wait to jump into Act Your Age, Eve Brown in June. (Check out Tree’s full review of Take a Hint, Dani Brown here.)
If you have been keeping up with these posts you know I’ve been loving the historical romance genre this year, but in May I didn’t read a single one! This started out because I wanted to read some other genres and then the urge to read only HR passed. Once the mood hits, I’ll probably read a ton more. Mood Reader for life. Anyways. My favorite was Hana Khan Carries On (see my review here), but my next favorite was All the Feels by Olivia Dade which I finished last night. This is the “sequel” to Spoiler Alert, which we both loved (see our joint review here) and we follow Alex and his assistant Lauren and their journey. As always with Olivia Dade, this book is so stinking cute with characters who have felt unworthy of love. This one still mentions fandom and fan culture, but a bit less than Spoiler Alert, but their are plenty of fan fiction references which I loved. I will say this lowkey does not have a super strong plot, but I loved these characters so much that it was fine with me! This one does not release until October, but y’all should read Spoiler Alert to prepare and get hyped!!
What were some of your top reads this month?
