Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
May was definitely one of my most successful reading month so far this year! Not only did I read seven books, but I read quite a books that I rated 4-5 stars! This month was also my birthday month, and I attended Penguin Teen Social 2019!
The first book I read this month was LOVE FROM A TO Z by S.K. Ali. This book features a lovely YA romance, as well as an important discussion about racism. You can read my full review for this book here. Thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada for the ARC!
The second book I read this month was TESTIMONY FROM YOUR PERFECT GIRL by Kaui Hart Hemmings. This book was really interesting, because the more I think about my initial 2.25 stars, I feel like I should have rated it a bit higher, since I really did enjoy most of the story. You can read my full review here. Thanks to Penguin Teen Canada for the ARC!
The third book I read this month was RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE by Casey McQuiston. This book is currently in contention with another book in this months wrap up (read below) for potentially being my number one book of 2019! I loved this book with my entire heart and soul, and am currently in the process of forcing everyone I know to read it! You can read my full review here. Thanks to Raincoast Books for sending me a finished copy!
The fourth book I read this month was BRIGHT BURNING STARS by A.K. Small. This book was so much darker than I anticipated, but I still ended up enjoying it! I participated in the blog tour for this one, and you can read my full review here. Thanks to Algonquin Young Readers for providing me with an eARC and selecting me to participate in the blog tour!
The fifth book I read this month was BIRTHDAY by Meredith Russo. According to my Goodreads, I read Meredith’s first book and gave it 5 stars, so it is not much of a surprise that I ended up really enjoying this one, too! You can read my full review here. Thanks to Raincoast Books for the ARC!
The sixth book I read this month was AMELIA WESTLAKE WAS NEVER HERE by Erin Gough. This was my second favourite book that I read this month! You can read my full review here. Thanks to HBG Canada for sending me the ARC!
The last book I read this month was THE FRIEND ZONE by Abby Jimenez. This may or may not be my favourite book of the entire year… but, you’ll have to wait until next week to read my full review! Thanks to HBG Canada for sending me a finished copy!
And those were all of the books that I read in May! How many books did you read this month? Which one was your favourite?
Good Night Book Owls!
