Goodbye April, Hello May!

by - May 01, 2018

Apparently May is happening tomorrow and I honestly thought that April had just started! I can't keep up. I'll reluctantly say goodbye to April and head into May, which is the month of my daughter's 3rd birthday - we're heading to a zoo so I may try and dedicate a post to that later in the month!

A monthly wrap up post is a new thing for my blog so in future I'll be referencing previous posts and link back to them.

DNF: 1 Book (Nowhere Else But Here by Rachel Cotton)

I managed to read 16 books this month, I'm pretty happy with that! On the downside I don't like to rate a book 1 Star unless absolutely necessary and having two rated that in one month shows that I've had a pretty bad reading month. I'm hoping May brings some great things but I think it'll be a NetGalley catch up month for me! I did manage to get 5 NetGalley books read this month at least.

Anticipated May Releases

 From a high fantasy set centuries apart to a scrap metal post apocalyptic to YA Game Of Thrones followed by JANE EYRE IN SPACE, I'm determined to make some time to finish these four in May. I'll let you know my thoughts on my next Monthly wrap up post on June 1st!

  1. I'm so excited to read LIFEL1K3, it's probably my most anticipated book. I don't have a review copy but I did preorder it, so I'll most likely be dumping everything else when it arrives! Happy birthday to your daughter!

  2. I'm reading Nothing But Sky right now, yaay! Uhmm don't even mention how fast these months go by... It's crazy. Well done reading 16 books, it's amazing! Happy reading!

    P.S. How do you even pronounce LIFEL1K3? :P

    1. 1 is an i and 3 is an e - so, Lifelike :D

  5. 16 books in a a month is great! Congrats! Sorry to hear you had two 1-Star books :( I'm reading THREE of your anticipated releases so hopefully we can chat about them! :) Happy May!

    1. I finished The Smoke Thieves last night and it gets a full 5 stars from me! Hopefully the rest of my anticipated releases are just as good.

  6. Wow, you have read SO many books last month, it's impressive! I can't wait to read The Astonishing Color of After, it sounds amazing :)
    I hope you will have an amazing May! :D x

  7. Lifelike was not really my kind of book but I happened you enjoy it. I want to try Smoke Thieves though!
