Well May flew by! Where it went, we certainly don’t know.
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.
Ahhh May was such a good reading month for me, that I legitimately did not think I read all of these fantastic books this month. But basically since I read too many good books (haha not a real problem), I just thought I would spotlight them all, with quick little blurbs each. Anyway, first off I have to mention my impulse-reread of the Check, Please graphic novels by Ngozi Ukazu (check out Tree’s series review). I really love, and missed, all the friendships in these books!! They’re just so wholesome and nontoxic and lovable. 10/10 would crawl into this world if I could. A world I would not want to crawl into though, would be See You Yesterday by Rachel Lynn Solomon (you can once again check out Tree’s review). But only because the two MCs are stuck in a time loop on their very first day of college. A recipe for Love? Or just for Shenanigans? Anyway, upon finishing it, all I could write in my update was “Thank you Rachel.” IDK if you would consider that apt praise, but my traumatized brain was goo by that point. Time loops, man. But the book that deserves most of my fangirling this month is So This Is Ever After by F.T. Lukens, which was a totally random libro.fm buy! I’m not normally a reader who enjoys character-heavy, plot-lite books but this whole book was just vibes? And I was LIVING for it?? I just loved every single character in the book, and wasn’t annoyed at all? I don’t understand what happened but I have accepted it (and added more F.T. Lukens books to my TBR). Oh it’s also a King Arthur retelling but like if you picked up with the group after the completion of “The Quest,” and made them all queer AF. Lastly I want to mention have two books that I really enjoyed this month, but definitely don’t me to heap on the praise, and that would be I Kissed Shara Wheeler and Book Lovers (Tree’s review here).
May was such a good reading month that selecting a favorite was almost impossible. I read a ton of great books and also flew through so many of them so in the end I read quite a bit. But, I’m going to go with The No Show by Beth O’Leary since it surprised me the most and I wasn’t planning on picking it up, but people kept recommending it. My disclaimer for this one is that even though it might look like a romance, but there are three POVs and not all of the women get HEAs so keep that in mind. But, this one was such a gripping read and I was so impressed that O’Leary was able to pull this off. I’ll be listing my other favorites on my wrap up on IG which I’ll link once it’s live if you want to know what else I loved this month. But, very grateful for such a good reading month.
What was your best May read?
xoxo, Bree & Tree
