May Wrap-up

We have made it through the month of May. It has definitely been a stressful month. I was able to escape a bit  through books and television ( How to Get Away with Murder and King of Queens, I thank you lol).

I’ve read fourteen  books this month. They were

I did not finish (DNF) two books this month.

Get A Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert– This was my second attempt to read this book. I usually don’t attempt to push myself to read books that I put to the side but I’ve heard some good things about this book ( the second book in the series, “Take a Hint, Dani Brown, releases  June 23rd by the way). Sadly, I just was not able to get into it.

What Lies Between Us by John Marrs– Now this one I will definitely be giving another chance in the future. I started this after reading “ Clap When You Land” (which I loved) and had book hangover. I just could not really focus. So I set it to the side and decided to switch up genres. I do plan on reading this book in the future.

Books I Added to My Collection

Before I even get to my books acquired during the month of May… I gave into peer pressure big time! Lol. There have been so many book recommendations and so many ebook deals that I just could not resist! Do not judge me. And to a certain Facebook book club, I definitely place the majority of the blame on you lol.

**I should really make June a no buy month but I know a few of my favorite authors have hinted about some surprise releases so here’s looking at you July. **


How many books did you read in May? Any anticipated releases in June?

  1. What a great May wrap, and book buying month! This month I’ve read and listened to 17 books so far. I am currently finishing up The Night Swim to take me to 18.

    I too have bought quite a few books this month and have seen some that will drop in June that I will be picking up.

    My most anticipated books to drop in June are #1 The Vanishing Half (Pre-ordered), and Home Before Dark (BOTM).

    My list that I want are The Boyfriend Project, What you Wish for, Saving Ruby King, The Dilemma, and Party of Two. Just to name a few. I know there is a couple others in there. 😉

    1. Since this post, I have bought one more book that was on sale, “All the Stars and Teeth” by Adalyn Grace. I am super excited about The Vanishing Half and have it pre ordered. There are so many others I can’t wait to get ❤
