I know I say this every month, but how is it possible that it’s already June?! This year is flying by! In May I read 20 books, and below I’ll share everything I read and let you know which ones were my favorites! All of the book titles link back to Goodreads so you can look them up if you’re interested!

Below are all of the books I rated 5 stars!

  • (#1) A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas – I was impatiently waiting for this to finally release, and I was not disappointed! The first half of the book was certainly slower than its predecessors, but I loved it regardless, and was thrilled with the ending!
  • (#2) The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond – this was a really interesting thriller about marriage that had a cult feel to it, and I loved it!
  • (#3) Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amy Kaufman – WELL what can I say about Gemina?! I know there were so many good reviews about Gemina, but I always get worried going into sequels that I’ll be disappointed, and I loved Illuminae so much that I was worried Gemina would be a letdown. I was not disappointed!
  • (#4) Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde – this was one I’d heard a lot about, and it was so cute! I read it really quickly, and it definitely was a feel-good story.

I read a few more books from my backlist, and I’ve almost hit my original goal of reading 40 of my backlist books. Maybe I’ll double it and aim for 80!

Here are the books I read through Netgalley/Edelweiss/publisher or author request. The Marriage Pact, listed in my “Favorite Reads” section was also a Netgalley title.
