May Wrap-up

May was a month with a lot of sunny days and I was so happy our garden is finally ready. I spend a lot of time outside this month. I’ve read some amazing books, although I didn’t read as much as I did in April.

Mei was een maand met veel zonnige dagen en ik was zo blij dat onze tuin eindelijk klaar is. Ik heb veel tijd buiten doorgebracht. Hoewel ik niet zo veel boeken heb gelezen als in April, heb ik deze maand een aantal geweldige boeken gelezen.

Let’s take a look at the books I’ve read and bought in May!

In May I’ve read 6 books.

  • Stalker – Lars Kepler; Review
  • Whisper – Lynette Noni (eARC); Review
  • Unravel Me – Tahareh Mafi

  • Lost for Words – Stephanie Butland (eARC); Review

Books I’ve bought in May

In May I received two book boxes;

  • I Stop Somewhere by T.E. Carter was in the Wildest Dreams Book Box.
  • Beyond a Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake was in the FairyLoot box.

I wanted to buy some new YA / Fantasy novels and I came home with;

  • The Cruel Prince – Holly Black
  • Caraval – Stephanie Garber
  • A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J. Maas
  • Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street (NL: De Horlogemaker van Londen) by Natasha Pulley I bought for just €1,89. The back of the book is very slightly damaged, but the cover is so pretty and the synopsis sounds fascinating.

      I really like the Shatter Me series, although I thought Julliette was a bit of a drama queen in Unravel Me..
