Reading Wrap-Up (March-May)

The month of June was nearing its end. From my side of the world, we only have a few hours before we bid the month of June goodbye. I’ve been meaning to do a wrap-up before yet I only have a few books to show each month. I’ve been reading slowly for months. In the month of March to May I’ve been busy with all the requirements for school. Being a graduating student at a university is tougher than it looks. And I managed to get through it! So after all the stress I decided to rest which gave me a slump for a week or two.

Anyway, I’ll quit blabbing and I’ll show you all the books that I’ve managed to finish in 3 months.

🌸MARCH WRAP-UP🌸

Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell

RATING: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ—

I may have my biases with regards to this book because it was written by Rainbow Rowell. It’s a short story about a Star Wars fangirl who’s waiting in line to see the movie. And that’s where the story unfolds. What I like about this book is in its limited pages, it enables us to see the life of a fangirl. It’s quite refreshing on my part. Although at some point I cannot relate to the Star Wars conversation.

Crystal Cadets by Anne Toole

RATING: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ—πŸŒ‘πŸŒ‘

This is a comic book that I was given an ARC to review. I honestly like the concept of the story although I have some issues with the actual plot. The illustration is good, I just don’t like the story although it is quite enjoyable.

Tinder by Sally Gardner

RATING: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ—πŸŒ‘

This is a story inspired byΒ Tinderbox by Hans Christian Andersen. I’m not quite sure if it is a retelling of some sort. I enjoyed the story and the illustrations. Especially the illustrations. The color revolves around black, white and red. It fits perfectly to the dark mood of the story. It is a fast read although it took me quite some time to finish this book. However, I have no idea what’s going on in this story. It’s like a vague story that has more depth than one would think. Yet enjoyable as it is.

Lucky Me by Saba Kapur

RATING: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ—πŸŒ‘

I have a love-hate relationship with this book. I like the plot but tropes and the clichΓ© parts of a YA book have been too much. The protagonist Chloe is sassy and quite funny and Jack. Yeah, that guy is swoon worthy.

 

 


🌸APRIL WRAP-UP🌸

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

RATING:Β πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ˜

I can understand all the hype about this book. Although it is hard to get in the world at first but the moment you get the hang of all the characters, you would surely enjoy it. Plus the book is always better than its adaptations. πŸ˜‚ I almost forgot, the author of this book is a cruel man who kills fictional characters in a snap. Beware!

Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell

RATING: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•

I know the cover has the vibes of a cutesy contemporary book but it is more of the self-discovery, family love, friendship and a little bit of romance. This is one book that needs a cover change like the Vampire Academy because the cover does not do justice to its content.

 

 


Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

RATING: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ‘

Well we all love Alice, right? Plus this edition that I’ve read makes it a fun experience. No need to explain why it got 5 stars.

 

 

 

 

 


 

🌸MAY WRAP-UP🌸

The Crown by Kiera Cass (The Selection Series Review)

RATING: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•

You read it right. A solid 5 stars. Hate me all you want but this is the revival of the series that I’ve been waiting for. It may not be much and although it feels kinda rush, at least there is a revival! Go Eadlyn!πŸ‘‘

The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

RATING: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ˜πŸŒ‘

I have some issues with this book because it’s too slow. Although the touch of mythology adds up to my interest at some point and the plot twist. It was a fun read and the second book is way better! However, I find the characters not likable and relatable at some point. But I somehow care to know what happens to the protagonist.

Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

RATING: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•

This is one of those trilogies that I’ve loved before it was hyped by bloggers and bookTubers because of the covers of the book. And this conclusion never disappoints. I’m satisfied with the ending although I’ve wished that the author has expanded the Epilogue more. But all in all, this was a wonderful ending!

 


I’ve managed to read 10 books in 3 months. Not bad. Although I’m 9 books behind schedule on my reading challenge I don’t feel any pressure. I’m planning to finish 2 books today, which is quite ambitious but we’ll see. πŸ˜‚ Thank you for reading!

 

Till next time!!
