Happy Friday bookish people! My goodness the end of the year has arrived very quickly and it is time to do my yearly wrap up. For this year I am going to show a picture of the book cover of every book I have read this year all broken down into categories determined by the star rating I gave the book.
overall, this year I have only managed to read 49 books, compared to over 100 last year.
This year I read no books that I disliked so much that I gave them one star, it was close but I eventually decided the books in the two star category are:
In my 3 star category are:
4 star ratings
and finally… my two books I read this year that I rated five stars are…..
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!
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.
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.
