I was a busy bee during the month of May, and had a whole heap of fun with some new reads! Of the ten books I’d wanted to read (mentioned in my May Books GOALS post), I’ve read seven of them, and am currently in the process of reading my eighth. Once again Searching for Charlotte and Dance of Thieves didn’t quite make it over the finish line, but there’s always tomorrow, right?
My May Books RECAP features a mixture of genres: fantasy is at the top of the list of course, but cosy mysteries and a classic whodunnit also made an appearance! What a fun month of reading it’s been – with Indie authors blowing me away with their writing, and a classic murder mystery giving me all the chills…
Links to Book Review Goodness:
If you want an insight into my May reads, the links below are my reviews for six of the books I fell in love with:
Everyone In My Family Has Killed Someone: Benjamin Stevenson
The Curse of a Faeblood: M. K. Lorber
Shadow of Fire: Kate Schumacher
Secrets of a Rose: Adina Chiles
A Legacy of Storms and Starlight: Victoria J. Price
I have also read The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg, and am actually in the process of giving it a review here on the blog! Just bear with me for that one, as May has been a fast and chaotic adventure at times. I’m also halfway through The Undine’s Tear by Talena Winters, but I’m not rushing my way through it.
And the May Favourite Read Goes To…
The hardest part of my May Books RECAP was choosing just one favourite read, but I’ve done it!
The favourite read just had to go to Kate Schumacher’s Shadow of Fire, because it’s a NA fantasy that left me speechless. It is the debut of an exceptional Indie author, filled with fae, magic, politics and deities. Like I said in my initial review, if you love brave heroines, the presence of magic, and huge stakes that could see the end of everything? It is definitely the book for you!
And that’s a wrap, glitterbugs!
Happy reading, dear bookworms. And stay tuned for more reviews in June…
