May (& April) Monthly Wrap Up

I know I’m a few days early, but with my two month break I figured who cares? I have quite a handful of books I read between then and now and also recently did a book haul before I went camping Memorial Day weekend. I also figured it would be better to post this today because tomorrow starts my first day of work at my new job. Yay for a new job, but boo for having to wake up at 4:30 in the morning. I’m also incredibly nervous because my new job is a server at a restaurant in a casino, and I have zero experience serving in a restaurant setting. (By the way does every state have casinos in them? I know obviously Nevada does..Las Vegas, New Jersey..Atlantic City, and I’m pretty sure Pennsylvania and New York do as well.) Anyways, I’m working full time and the drive is also a little over an hour so I am not sure if I will get up to two reviews a week but I will definitely still do TTT and one review. (I already have a double review -the two books go hand in hand- to post over the weekend.) So onto to the books I have read since my last post in April. Since I haven’t posted reviews, and there isn’t enough time to post them all, I will include my rating and a quick review or note for the book.

 

Snapshot by Angie Stanton – 5 Stars. I fell in love with this book from the first page and it is definitely one I would recommend as a summer or beach read. It’s also a companion novel to one of her other books (which I am definitely ordering asap).

Every Little Thing in the World by Nina de Gramont – 4 Stars. Definitely refreshing and original. Once again a good, easy summer read. Made me want to go on a canoeing/camping trip for two weeks with a bunch of friends.

In Your Room by Jordanna Fraiberg – 3.5 Stars. Once again refreshing and original, as well as a super quick and easy read. Really cute and is one I will most likely read again.

Moonglass by Jessi Kirby – 5 Stars. Absolutely love this book! Great for bringing to the beach. Just fell in love with everything about this book and have not a single complaint.

The Ruining by Anna Colomore – I actually posted in my March wrap up that I was going to review this book and I still will because I feel like it was so good that it needs a review.

If He Had Been With Me by Laura Nowlin – 4 Stars. This book was so good, and had be bawling my eyes out like a baby at some points. Definitely read when you’re alone!

Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson – 5 Stars. So happy I finally have read this book. I loved every page and understand why everyone raves about it. So far Morgan Matson has not failed to pull me into her novels. Can’t wait to read her newest!

Monument 14: Savage Drift by Emmy Laybourne – 4 Stars. Great way to end the trilogy. I loved how in the last few chapters everything tied in and made sense and was just perfect as it could be in their situations. Had me up late turning the pages because I couldn’t take a break.

And last but not least…….

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – 5+ Stars. Why anyone allowed me to wait until a couple of weeks ago to read this book makes me mad. I fell in love with the storyline and the characters. Obviously like everyone else I cried more than any book has made me cry before. I had to put the book down twice until I could compose myself. I’m already planning on bringing a whole box of tissues when I go see this in the theaters. I’m also keeping my fingers crossed that it does the book justice. Anyone interested in seeing the movie, read the book first!!!

 

I am pretty positive those are all the books I have read besides the two I plan on reviewing over the weekend. I also have about 10 new books from the past week as well as a good amount of ARCs I’ve downloaded this past week on my Kindle, so I should be set for reviews for a while. I will probably try to review a few of the books I posted in this post because some were too good not to get a full post to themselves.
