May Wrap Up!

Hey there!!

As I said in my last post, May was a CRAZY month for me, so it's been a bit all over the place with reading. I only managed to finished four books, which is a bit less than my usual, however I thoroughly enjoyed all of them so all was not lost!

Without further ado, here are the books that I have read in May:

To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
I'd been meaning to pick this one up for ages, after having seen so many rave reviews all over booktube about it! And I am so, so glad I did. I was in just the mood for a cute contemporary, and that is exactly what this book delivered. I adored the characters, and really enjoyed how the family dynamic of the main character, Lara Jean, is really focused on. Highly recommend!!

Rating: 4.5/5

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Another one that I've been meaning to read for EVER, I finally downloaded this for free on my Kindle and read it straight through in one sitting. And what an experience. I am absolutely obsessed with this book. Being a French student, I probably should give it a go in French, but for the first time through read the English version. The language is phenomenal, and this is one of those books that makes you completely rethink your life! So many beautiful metaphors, I can't even deal!! This is definitely now on the list of my favourite books of all time.

Rating: 5/5

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I'm sure you've all been hearing the craze over ACOMAF, and if you haven't yet picked it up let me tell you, it is absolutely justified. If you've read my ACOTAR review, you'll know that while I enjoyed it, I had quite a lot of problems with it. However, ACOMAF was freaking incredible!! I loved it so much more than ACOTAR, and cannot wait to see where this series is going to go. The characters have developed so much more, the world is so beautiful and intriguing, and holy cow the romance is steaming! Love love love!!

Rating: 5/5

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Yet another book that is praised a lot on booktube and book blogs, I finally picked up The Name of the Wind!! Once again, I adored it! Being a massive fantasy book, it's taken me quite a while to get through, with a couple of little breaks in the middle, but Patrick Rothfuss' writing is so beautiful and easy to read that it doesn't make it tiring at all. He creates such a vivid, beautiful world filled with incredibly rich characters, and I will for sure be needing to continue with this series!!

Rating: 4.5/5

So there you have it, the four books that I read in May!

Let me know in the comments what you've read recently, I'd love to know!

Love always,



  1. I've been meaning to pick up To All the Boys, but I'm terrified that it might be too boy-crazy for me. I'm undecided.

    Have fun in June!

    1. Thank you!! It can be a bit boy-crazy but was fun for if you're in the contemporary mood! xx

  2. The Name of the Wind has been on my TBR for a while now, ever since I saw how long his signing lines were at NerdCon in MN last year. He has SO many fans, so I figured his books must be pretty good!
    And I'm so glad you liked To All The Boys I've Loved Before! The second one is just as cute and they recently announced there's going to be a third book! *que squealing. I loved Lara Jean's quirky character so much that I want to name my next cat after her, much to my family's dismay LOL.
    I also read ACOMAF this month and it was by far my favorite read this year!
    Hope your May was fantastic Ari! Yay for summer finally being here!

    1. They're all so incredible!! And same, ACOMAF is definitely my favourite so far!
      Thank you!! Unfortunately Winter is now here for me in Australia, enjoy your summer though! xxx

  3. I too loved A Court of Mist and Fury. Dare I call it SJM's best book yet? I DARE. I read The Little Prince in french class (in french!), and I enjoyed it. It was a bit too philosophical for my taste though....
