May 2016 has been an interesting month – I’m putting the finishing touches to the last assignment in my 16-year academic career, my thesis in Biophysics. I didn’t think I’d be able to get through many books or blog posts, but it appears instead I’ve broken records. Huh.
I hope you’ve all been enjoying the YALC Reading List books as much as I’ve been enjoying writing them – they’re a great way of figuring out what books I want to read and get signed before the big weekend in July. I’m so excited to see the timetable tomorrow (1 June) at 9am!
I’ve also been helping with the UKYA BookBlogger Awards. Here are all the posts from the awards, including the announcement of the winners earlier this week.
I also wrote about the boxsets I am so excited to buy, featuring the lovely new boxsets from Leigh Bardugo:
Here I would insert a nice photo of the books I’ve read, but I’m too lazy this month. Next month however…
The Inventory: Iron Fist by Andy Briggs – review and my stop on the blog tour here.
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin – review here.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare
I read this after doing the play at school many years ago, and in preparation for the BBC adaptation (which I’m not entirely sure I’m going to watch – any opinions would be welcome)
The Crown and the Arrow by Renee Ahdieh
This is a *really* short story bridging the gap between the two books in The Wrath and the Dawn duology.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
OMG. This book. Just go and read this book. 4.77 rating on Goodreads. (I’m planning on publishing my reviews for ACOTAR and ACOMAF over a weekend sometime soon.)
My Favourite Manson Girl by Alison Umminger – review here
The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout – review here
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
I read this in anticipation for the movie – hoping to do a book/film comparison this month!
The Girls by Emma Cline – review here
So that’s NINE books, in a month I wasn’t really meant to be reading…
I’m hoping June will be just as productive!
What have you read this month? Have you read any of the books on my list? What did you think?
