May Wrap-Up and June TBR

This month started out strong, but after the first week, I strayed away from the list of books I had on my schedule to read and picked up a few upcoming fall titles and one book that just kept calling my name.  I didn't quite make it to 13 as planned, but I got more than halfway there, at least!

The books I managed to read in May:
-Paper Towns by John Green
-The Cage by Megan Shepherd
-Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer
-The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
-The Cost of All Things by Maggie Lehrman
-Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
-What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi
-Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley
-Between Us and the Moon by Rebecca Maizel

The Wrath & The Dawn was by far the best book of May!  I was lucky enough to have dinner with Renee Ahdieh a few weeks back, and she's just the sweetest.  

The books I plan to read in June:

As you can see, I'm still feeling pretty ambitious.  Some of the books I didn't get to read in May have found their way into my June TBR.  I tried to make this month an even mix of review books and just-for-fun books.


  1. I feel you. I was having positive thoughts at the start of the month and then I had the mother of all reading slumps. I ended up reading seven books and only one of them is actually on my May TBR. Can't wait to read The Wrath and the Dawn, The Leveller and Emmy & Oliver! Happy reading!

    PS Born Wicked is amazing.

    1. Yes! I would highly, highly recommend The Wrath & The Dawn (it should also help you get past your reading slump)! I started Emmy & Oliver today and I'm enjoying that a lot so far. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. You had a great month! Looks like you have great ones picked for June too!
