June TBR!

Hey guys! Even though I have been completely smashing my TBR the past two months, I am still going to set a low one this month as I like only having a small TBR. Having a small one each month is definitely more manageable and I feel it’s less pressure on myself. If I set a massive TBR I’d feel so stressed all month and rush to complete it. So I’ll be setting myself 6 books and if I manage to read them all before the end of the month, then I’ll just pick up another book at random. So without further ado, here is what I want to read this month:

The Rose Society The Midnight Star by Marie Lu: This series is a trilogy and I’ve already read the first book The Young Elites, so I’m going to now read the other two. The first one was OK, not great to be honest. I wasn’t sure if it was worth continuing but apparently the second book is a lot better so I’ve decided to get them both read. I’ve heard Marie Lu is a fantastic writer, maybe this isn’t one of her best series? I probably should have started with Legend but oh well.

May Wrap Up!

Hey guys! You are going to be so shocked and hopefully impressed with me! I managed to read nine books in May and I am so ecstatic! Of course it helped that I had a week off work and managed to read three books. I don’t know how people manage to read this many books every month, it was such a challenge for me but it was awesome constantly reading and not having a breather in between for work and other things! So without further ado, here it was I read this month:

1) Friend Request by Laura Marshall: I feel like if the publisher has to put “The most addictive thriller you’ll read this year” or similar on the cover, then the chances are that it’s not going to be very good and not addictive at all. Let me tell you that this book was so boring and it felt so ridiculous. It switched between an adult life and high school drama and it was exhausting trying to find reasons to care about these characters. It was such a disappointing story and there’s better thrillers out there for sure.

2) Copycat by Alex Lake: I liked this book, I thought the mystery was really good and I kept me guessing all the way through. It’s a psychological thriller because it twists everything and makes you think the main character is actually going crazy and forgetting what she is doing. The ending left me surprised and it actually strayed into some pretty dark stuff. I didn’t like the last few pages and would have preferred a different ending because it’s left on a cliffhanger and if it’s a standalone book that is annoying.
