Bookish Roundup – May, 2017

MayRoundupGraphic

Can you believe it is June, already? I won’t go on and on about how this year has gone sooo fast, but: it totally has, y’all. Just sayin’.

My reading speed wasn’t the best this month, but I think that may have been because I was reading some biiiig books. So, go easy on me, y’all. I can’t hit the 27 book mark every single month, much as I would like to. It’s all good, though, because did I read some doozies or what last month?! Oh, you will never know the joy I felt when I discovered Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses series… Addicted. I am addicted to that series, I will tell you what. And had you ever asked me if I would be a YA Fantasy fan in the past, I would have laughed you right out of my life, let me tell you. It just goes to show… never say never.

Speaking of YA, I really hit the YA groove in May as well. Ten out of the 17 books I read were YA novels – and most of those were along the lines of the Fantasy genre. Wha-What???? What is happening to me?? I don’t know, y’all, but… I like it! I like it a lot! And I cannot get enough. Wait until you see my line-up for June’s Roundup – you’re gonna lose your minds!!

Anyhoo, let’s take a look at exactly what I did read in May:

So many of the books I read in May were simply amazing, I don’t even know where to begin. Books I could have done without in May – as in, book I wish I’d not read after all – might be easier to go over. I didn’t find a lot entertaining in The Paper Magician series; I found it to be kind of just filler reading – you know, entertaining enough to keep my mind busy, but not inventive enough to actually inspire interest or loyalty to the series or author. The First Husband and Lola fall under this category as well, however, Lola did have the possibility of becoming something really amazing – alas, the author just didn’t go that extra mile. Too bad, so sad. Everything else was aces, y’all, just aces. Can’t wait to get started with my June TBR and report back to you on that one – I have sooooo many good feelings about those books, y’all! With that thought, I am outta here and on my way to get my Summer read on – Happy Reading to all of you as well!!

What was your favorite May read? Do you have a special book on your summer tbr?

    Oh my gosh, ME TOO on the YA and fantasy! Lately I can’t get enough of the stuff. Sarah J. Maas is totally on my list now, thanks for the enthusiastic recommendation. I just finished The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima (first in a series), and it was SO AWESOME, I highly recommend it. Can’t wait to see your June roundup! I love your “voice,” your excitement is infectious! 🙂

      SO glad you’re going to go for some Maas novels!! I definitely recommend the ACOTAR series first rather than the Throne of Glass series. I’m definitely going to have to check out The Demon King now, darn it. I’ve already added Hunted and Vengeance Road to my growing pile of books, thanks to you!! Grrr…
