It’s time for my monthly Wrap Up and TBR post! (I am determined to make this a thing)
The aim of this reading game is to help me read more books and hopefully get on top of the ever-growing To Be Read pile. The more books I read, the more books I can buy. The more books I can buy, the more books I can read. It’s a win-win, right?
Books I Read in May
Tin Man by Sarah Winman – 4*
Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough – 5*
The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day by Christopher Edge – 4* (not pictured)
Repeal Anthology by Una Mullally – 5*
Clean by Juno Dawson – 4*
Skylarks by Karen Gregory – 5*
Book of the Month
I thought it would be fun to include in these posts, my favourite book from the ones I read in the previous month. As you can see by the high ratings, I have read some cracking books in May. However, the winner has to be the Repeal Anthology by Una Mullally. The Repeal Anthology contains short stories, poems and real-life accounts of how the Eighth Amendment has affected the lives of women in Ireland. I would definitely recommend this book for those who are interested in the Repeal movement, and in particular how people used different forms of art in their campaign. With Ireland recently voting Yes to repeal, this anthology could be considered to be a piece of history in a few years…
A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G Drews | After the Fire by Will Hill | I Stop Somewhere by T.E Carter | How Do You Like Me Now? by Holly Bourne
I nearly cried with happiness when I saw I had won a proof copy of A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews – thank you SO much, Team BKMRK! This book is one of the most anticipated releases in the book blogosphere at the moment and I can’t wait to read it for myself.
After the Fire by Will Hill has recently been announced as the YA Book Prize 2018 winner – congratulations, Will! I have heard nothing but amazing things about this novel, and I think it’s about time I finally see for myself what all the fuss is about.
I Stop Somewhere by T.E Carter was the book of the month in the Wildest Dreams Female Voices box, and it sounds like a difficult, but important read.
Finally, I am a HUGE fan of Holly Bourne, and I can’t WAIT to get my hands on her debut adult novel, How Do You Like Me Now? Honestly, I just know I am going to love it. *squeals with excitement*
What will you be reading in June?
