Hello! This month flew by. I cannot believe we’re entering the half-year mark already for 2019. This month was kind of weird because I finished my second year of college and moved in for the summer at my boyfriend’s house. The reading month has been a little weird because I started reading multiple things, but never completing any of them.
Before I finished the semester I started No Exit by Taylor Adams and The Weight of Stars by K. Ancrum.
I really wanted to read No Exit, and I started reading it, it didn’t hook me in. I got about roughly 60 pages in and it wasn’t really grasping my attention.
The Weight of Stars, I think I got a little further into than the other book but I think the beginning was still a little slow and it was a longer book. I think that since it was longer, it was going to be a struggle for me to push myself to read.
I heard really good things about both books and the plots of both seemed interesting, but I’m not so sure I should finish them at a later point. If any of you have read either book, let me know if I should continue or not.
After I got moved into my boyfriend’s house, I wasn’t really in the mood to read right away. I started helping his parents with a lot of things and using my time to do other productive things. Which I’m pretty happy with.
I received Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston in the mail since it came out in May! I wanted to re-read it. I am just about halfway through it and still enjoy it just as much as the first time. If you want to check out my thoughts while I read it as an ARC click here. I plan to finish this book next month and I’ll let you know how I feel after re-reading it.
The other book I picked up towards the end of the month was called Girls on the Verge by Sharon Biggs Waller. It’s a shorter book but very impactful. I’m also halfway through the book, and also plan on finishing it up in June.
Some goals I have in June besides finishing the two books that I mentioned was, finishing my buddy read with my boyfriend of All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood because we took a hiatus from reading because things got a little busy around here. I also want to re-read The Art of Starving by Sam J. Miller because I have a very different outlook on eating disorders. I remember liking the book when I read it but since I’m more aware of eating disorders and mental health, my views may differ.
