Wrap Ups and Hauls

May Wrap Up

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve all had an amazing month. I’ve been failing this year with keeping up with wrap ups but they are something that I plan on getting back into starting with May’s wrap up.

Books

I manged to read quite a mixture this month from full length novels to graphic novels, poetry collections and anthology.

This first book I read this month was Seven Blades in Black by Same Sykes. This was a brilliant fast paced fantasy and I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. Review here.

 

I read a lot of poetry this month starting with The Princess Saves Herself in This One which I gave 4 stars to and The Mermaid’s Voice Returns in This One which I gave 3 stars to. Both of these are by Amanda Lovelace.

 

It’s taken me a year but I have finally reread all of the Shadowhunter books by Cassandra Clare. I finished up with The Dark Artifices series, this was definitely the most sophisticated series to date and you can really see how Cassandra has grown as a writer since The Mortal Instruments. I gave all of these 5 out of 5 stars.

 

The next three books I read were poetry collections. The first was A Am More Than A Daydream by Jennae Cecelia which I gave 3 stars. The next was Confessions of a Wallflower by Juansen Dizon which I gave 4 stars. The last was Kaleidoscopic Skies by Ekta Daryani which I gave 3 stars.

 

I read two graphic novels this month Pilu of the Woods and A Quick & Easy Guide to Queer & Trans Identities. The artwork in both of these is adorable and I gave both 4 out of 5 stars. Reviews here.

I also read Across the Void by S.K. Vaughn this month. This was a great suspenseful sci-fi that I gave 4 out of 5 stars to. Review here.

 

 

The last three poetry collections I read this month were Reverie, Voyage and Dreamscape by Erin Hanson. These were by far my favourite poetry collections and I related so much with a lot of these poems. I gave all of these 5 out of 5 stars.

Haul

This month I had no self control what so ever and bought way too many books, my Bank account is not happy with me.

The-Curse-of-La-Llorona-e1552941315181

This was a great instalment to the Conjuring Universe, not my favourite but still enjoyable.

Tolkien-Movie-Poster

I’m a big fan of Lord of the Rings and enjoyed learning more about Tolkien’s life however, I did find it to be boring at times and felt my mind drifting away several times throughout the movie.

This was definitely the best movie I’ve seen this month.

Travels_with_My_Father

How has it taken me so long to watch this. I’m a big Jack Whitehall fan and this was hilarious, I also loved seeing the dynamic between him and his father.

I decided to give The Good Place a shot this month and loved it. This is a really funny and entertaining show and I can’t wait to see what they come up with in season 4.

 


How has your month been?
