This is the first post in my new series Monthly Wrap Up. At the end of each month I will post about the books that I read that month and the books I purchased that month. So for May I read 7 1/2 books and I bought 5 books.
The Books I Read:
Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott – I thought this was an amazing sequel. With the way things left off I am hoping we get at least one more book!
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson – I had such high expectations going into this book and I wasn’t disappointed. I really enjoyed the story and the characters. I am excited for the sequel which is releasing next month!
Four by Veronica Roth – I liked the four stories that were in this book. I think it was good for us to get more Tobias!!
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – This was a reread for me. I decided to go ahead a finish off this series but I wanted to reread the first three books I had already read due to not remembering a lot from them.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black – This is the second Holly Black book I have read, the first one being The Darkest Part of the Forest. I can honestly say that she is now one of my favorite authors. Her writing is amazing.
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare – Again, this was a reread for me. I loved it just as much the second time around but I had forgotten quite a lot from it.
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare – My last reread and another one I didn’t remember a lot from. But still an amazing book!
I then got through half of City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare which is the fourth book in the Mortal Instruments series. I finished this book this week and it wasn’t my favorite in the series so far, but still good!
The Books I Bought:
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare – This is the final book in the Mortal Instruments series. And it is a massive book!
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – I have only read one of Morgan Matson’s books and I loved it so I decided to go ahead and pick this one up and give it a read this summer. It sounds really good!
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge – This is a beauty and the beast retelling! I’ve heard mixed reviews on it so hopefully im on the side of people who like it!
The Distance Between Us by Kasie West – I have been seeing some buzz about this book lately so I thought why not get it while its only 1.99!
Rush by Eve Silver – I haven’t heard to much about this book but it was 1.99 in the nook store so I went ahead and got it. Hopefully it’s a good one!
Overall, I am very happy with how many books I got read this month and I didn’t buy that many books so I am happy about that as well! Let me know in the comments what books you read in May and what books you bought!!
