Books Wrap Ups

May Wrap Up

June 8, 2018

This was another quality over quantity month, but my god I read some incredible things this month. The books I read I wanted to savour, to enjoy without feeling like I had to speed through them. I'm certainly getting more reading done at the moment, thank god.

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

The characters in this series deserved this book, they needed this book really. After everything they've been through in the previous three. As always I loved this book, I love anything and everything Sarah J Maas writes so it's really no surprise that I loved this book. My favourite aspect was the multiple POV, nearly every character got a bit of page time this way but I never felt confusing. I loved being in Az's head. He's my favourite of the inner circle. There was only one part I wasn't too fond of but I explain why in my review.

I have a full review here.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

 

1. State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury

I will read whatever Melinda writes. A 500 page novel on cheese? I'll read it. Well, it'd be vegan cheese for her. She can do no wrong. I loved her previous trilogy and State of Sorrow has me thinking this next series will be no different. The world she's created is so dark and yet there's still hope. I also believe that Melinda is nearly unmatched in her ability to create mind boggling political intrigue. I adored this book so so much.

5. Memory of Water by Emmi Itaranta

This had been sat on my shelves for an awful long time and so fitted the the backlist challenge from the Biannual Bibliothon perfectly. Safe to say I didn't quite manage to read it within that week but I got to it eventually and I'm so glad I did. It was fantastic if decidedly scary. In a world where water has been fashioned due to the rising sea levels one girl attempts to continue the sacred art of tea making. This was such a beautiful book and I find myself still thinking about it now.

Legendary* by Stephanie Garber

I adored Caraval. It was one of my favourite books of 2017 and I have a funny feeling that Legendary is going to end up on that list this year too. I loved this book. It had the whimsy I loved from the first novel with heightened stakes. I did miss the feeling of first being introduced to Caraval but the plot certainly made up for that in this book. I did miss having Scarlett and Julian moments. There was hardly any page time of them, alone or together. However, I loved watching Tella battle with her feelings for a certain tattooed gentleman.

Those are the books I read in May!

What have you been reading lately?

Thank-you for reading,
