May Wrap Up

So I read a total of 12 books this month and most of them were ARCs I was trying to catch up on. And for once since I started book blogging, I can say I almost all the way caught up. I think I have 3 e-ARCs from Netgalley to read and about 5 physical ARCs to read, then I am all caught up! So like usual, the books at the top are from my my personal TBR and are books I either own, borrowed from the library or through Amazon Prime/Kindle Unlimited!

Balancing in Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness and Making It All Work by Kristin Cavallari 3/5 stars

A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas 4/5 stars

A River of Darkness: One Man’s Escape from North Korea by Masaji Ishikawa  5/5 stars

 

Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell 4/5 stars

All The Little Lights by Jamie McGuire 3/5 stars

Furyborn (Empirium #1) by Claire Legrand 3/5 stars

Courageous Women of the Bible: Leavig Behind Fear and Insecurity for a Life of Confidence and Freedom by Latan Roland Murphy 4/5 stars

Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott 3/5 stars

Lies by T.M. Logan 3/5 stars

Rust & Stardust by T. Greenwood 4/5 stars

Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne 3/5 stars

Grace Like Scarlett by Adriel Booker 4/5 stars

 

So I have to say my favorite book this month was of course A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas. I was actually quite surprised at how many people gave this book fairly low ratings. Yes, there really isn’t a plot, but the book was exactly what I expected it to be. I expected a short novella that just kind of touched on how life had been since the end of the war and how everyone was doing and that is exactly what it was. So I really have no complaints about it and I was really excited to read the beginning of the next book at the end and am really looking forward to that. I also really enjoyed A River of Darkness by Masaji Ishikaw. I have watched a lot of documentaries and read one or two other books about North Korea but this was by far the most in depth. And it was of course unbelievable at times and it is incredibly sad, but I highly recommend reading it. It’s currently included in Kindle Unlimited. I caught up on a lot of ARCs this month and out of those Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell and Rust & Stardust by T. Greenwood were my favorite out of that group. Thanks to all the great publishers who sent me these books. What was your favorite book this month?
