After reading three books last month, and three that were all non-fiction, this month was totally different! I read six books this month, and they were all fiction books, all but one being young adult fiction. This month I’m going to work on starting my summer business list while balancing my love for fiction.
Anyway – here’s the round up from what I read in May!
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Loved. This. Book. I don’t know why it took me so long to read this one; I think it was because I thought it was going in a different way. This was such a quick read, so it would be perfect to pack if you’re looking for something to take to the beach. I think I finished this book in just a few days, and immediately I was looking forward to the sequel which just came out last week. After really enjoying this book, I’m looking forward to checking out some others by Jenny Han.
We Were Liars
I had seen tons of reviews that this was a pretty good book, so I finally decided to check it out when it became available from the library. It ended up being so good; I really enjoyed reading it. The one thing that I saw in the reviews was that the ending was crazy. That people never saw it coming, and I have to say I didn’t either. I had no idea where this book was going, but I was really surprised when it started revealing itself at the end. I won’t reveal anything, but I’m not surprised this book became such a big hit. However, it is very different from Lockhart’s other books (that I’ve heard of).
I found this book a few months ago at Target, and I really wanted to grab it, but I was skeptical. I’m very picky with buying books, so I never grabbed it. I figured I would just wait until it became available on Overdrive. Luckily I spotted it for $4 at a local used book store, and decided to pick it up then. If you’re looking for a very quick beach read, I recommend this one! I finished it in less than a day (starting at 10AM, finishing around 6PM), and I really enjoyed it. I had several friends in college who were in a sorority, and I had entered college with interest in joining one, though I never did. This book is a pretty interesting insight into the good and bad that comes with being in one, though in the end it focuses on the good.
Other books I read last month:
Solitaire by Alice Oseman
Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan
Ps I Still Love You by Jenny Han
