Monthly Wrap Ups

May Wrap Up!

Happy Thursday bookish people! I hope you’re all having a good day today. I know this is a couple of days late but I haven’t been very well. But finally I can put up my May wrap up! I had a much better reading month, part of this was because I took part in the 48 hour readathon hosted by Becca and the Books on YouTube for which I ended up reading seven books over a weekend.

So, let’s see what I managed to read this month from my TBR:

  • The Crooked Sixpence by Jennifer Bell – I did read this! It was one of the seven books I read for the readathon, a review will be coming soon
  • The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling – another book I read as part of the readathon, review coming soon
  • Graceling by Kristen Cashore – I did not read this
  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare – I did not read this
  • Last Chance Books by Kelsey Rodkey – I did not read this
  • Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao – I did not read this
  • A Three Dog Problem by S J Bennett – I did not read this
  • The Crowns Game by Evelyn Skye – I did not read this
  • A River Enchanted by Rebecca Ross – I did not read this
  • The Final Girls Support Group by Grady Hendrix – I did read this for the spooky book prompt of the readathon
  • A Marvellous Light by Freya Marske – I read this while on the drive up to Cardiff for a concert this month
  • The Key in the Lock by Beth Underdown – I did not read this
  • Dangerous Women by Hope Adams – I started this book in May and I am currently finishing it now
  • A Line to Kill by Anthony Horowitz – I did read this
  • Cecily by Annie Garthwaite – I also read this
  • Queenslayer by Sebastien de Castell – and I read this

Outside of my TBR I also read Turtles All The Way Down by John Green, Newts Emerald by Garth Nix and Love Him To Death by Tanya Landman

I think I read 11 books this month which is really great and a lot better than the past few months.

That’s it for my May Wrap up, I hope you all had a good reading month. My reviews of the books that I read will be going up soon!

Monthly TBRs

February TBR – Chopped Readathon

Happy Friday bookish people! I hope you’re all having a good day and week. My week has been very upsetting and stressful, my partner and I ended up breaking up and I had to gather the things I needed and move to my sister’s house for a few days. Then I will be moving back in with my parents so it’s been really difficult and I’m not doing too great but things will get better soon I’m sure.

Anyway, today I am bringing you my TBR for February which is my TBR for the Chopped Readathon which I am co-hosting in February with @PlaidReader on Twitter.

Onto the TBR!

Spaghetti – A book with a friendship or multiple points of view

All I had to know about this book is that there’s a library and demons coming out of books so of course I want to read it.

Champagne – A character with anxiety

I don’t know much about this book but I saw a few people mention that if you like the book fangirl by rainbow rowell then you might like this one so that’s why I picked it up and I am intrigued.

Steak and Lobster – A book that looks expensive or has a fancy cover

I am so excited to read this book! And this cover definitely fits the prompt of looking fancy.

Ring Pops – a book featuring or revolving around a wedding

Yuzu – a sweet and tart character

I love anything Garth Nix so I am very excited to read this.

Truffles – A darker genre book e.g mystery or thriller

Leftovers – A book you DNF’d

I started this book about a year ago and I read the first 100 pages and then I can’t remember the reason why I put it down but I did and I hadn’t gotten around to picking it up again yet.

Baked Alaska – a book with a surprise

Edible Glitter – A book with magic or fantasy in it

Milkshake – a book where two characters have to go on a quest

Pizza – a comfort read

Strawberries – a book with a red cover

I know it doesn’t look very red here but I was very lucky to be sent a proof copy of this book and that one has a red cover, so I am going to count it.

That’s it for my February TBR, I hope you all enjoyed seeing what I plan to read. Let me know in the comments if you plan to join us with the readathon – there are prizes! – and what you plan to read for it.
