May in Books

It’s finally June! This month was full of hits and misses for me so I decided to start making a book recap post for every month and I’m going to start with May! I’ll be listing all the books I read throughout the month with a brief rating and summary of my thoughts.

Wintersong (Wintersong #1) by S. Jae-Jones
Rating: 2/5

I was really excited for this book because look at that cover! I was excited to read all about the Goblin King and I was devoured the first few chapters but realized after a while that I’ve read so much but nothing substantially exciting has happened. I managed to get as far as halfway when I decided to drop the book because I felt like I was waiting for something that was never going to happen.

I had high expectations for this book but sadly they weren’t met.

 

31451174A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas
Rating: 5/5

On the day of its release, I ran to the nearest bookstore and bought a copy and started reading this straightaway on a school day when I had exams coming up. This book was that important to me. I was able to finish this book within 24 hours with little to no sleep and had 0 regrets whatsoever.

This book was a great finale for Feyre’s storyline and while I’m excited for the next 3 ACOTAR books, I’m a bit sad knowing that we’re saying goodbye to this amazing series.

Always and Forever Lara Jean (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #3) by Jenny Han
Rating: 2.5/5 stars

I was majorly disappointed with this book. While I loved books 1 and 2, book 3 seriously lacked in an actual plot. I get that Lara Jean is taking a big leap from high school to college but it felt really basic and had no substance. Peter K, unlike in the first book, was such an annoying character to read.

I would have enjoyed it more if half of the book was about graduation and the next half was them settling into college.

 

27211901 The Crown’s Fate (The Crown’s Game #2) by Evelyn Skye
Rating: 3.5/5

I loved The Crown’s Game as much as I didn’t love The Crown’s Fate. I started reading this with too high of expectations and I ended up disappointed.

The entirety of this plot centered around the love triangle. This book that had so many pressing problems to be addressed centered on the romance. I was honestly really turned off by that. The book ended when the romance issue was resolved. Forget the treason and other magical creatures because Vika finally found her true love!

That was the monthly book recap for May! Obviously I had more misses than hits, but I hope June has better experiences in store.

  1. I made it all the way through Wintersong, but I was also disappointed that it wasn’t what I wanted it to be. I haven’t started any of the others, but they look good.

      1. It took me a long time to decide how I felt about it after I finished. I wanted to like it more than I did, and my brain kept trying to convince me it was better than it was. Still, I’ll read the next one when it comes out.
