may 2022 reads

I can’t believe it is already almost June! May was a good reading month for me, even though I had a family vacation to Disney in the middle of the month! I have really fallen into the reading mood again & am LOVING it.

Here are the books I read in May:

The Duke and I

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Chad got me this for Easter & I was excited to dive in! A lot of this story is portrayed in the Netflix version, Season 1 of Bridgerton. However, I loved getting to know the characters at a deeper level than what the show portrays. Especially, with the Duke of Hastings! There was so much more under the surface with the Duke, his thoughts and feelings felt more complete in the book rather than on the show. That alone made reading the book worthwhile! I will be spreading out the series because I love the Regency Era, and I am excited to read the rest!

The Inheritance Games

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The story is a classic, yet totally unique. I love the mystery, without the crime, and Jennifer Lynn Barnes’ writing style was mesmerizing! The short chapters helped you fly through the book. If you like Knives Out, YOU WILL LOVE THIS.

*I borrowed from the local library, hence the whiteout on the library. But, have already purchased the next two in the series & will be purchasing this one as well!!

A Court of Thorns and Roses

Rating: 5 out of 5.

It took me a second to fully get into this storyline; I would say it starts off being a fantasy version of Katniss Everdeen. But, WOW. I heard it was good, but I thought it was overhyped. It was NOT. It is so incredibly good, once you get into it you are into it. I am already halfway into the next book (A Court of Mist and Fury) and it is good too! Sarah J. Maas has an incredible talent for storytelling; she transport you into this complex fantasy world in a way that is easily understandable and captivating!

Did you know that you can find me on GoodReads! You can find me HERE!

I hope everyone had a great month full of reading & fun times!

cheers,

I appreciate your support if you buy, I might earn a small commission. Thank you!!!!
