May Wrap Up + June TBR


Calm yourself, Shannon. Back to the books. Last month was okay on the reading front. I received a bunch of books for review so I’ve been reading books which I probably wouldn’t have picked up normally, which has been fun :)))

May Wrap Up

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

4.5/5 Stars – Click here for full review


This one pleasantly surprised me and took me on a wonderful adventure ๐Ÿ™‚

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

4/5 Starsย – Click here for full review


I did enjoy this one a lot but it has been so over-hyped recently! I was expecting a little bit more from it.

My Favourite Manson Girl by Alison Umminger

4/5 Starsย – Click here for full review


This was another one that pleasantly surprised me. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading it but it was interesting!

Love and Other Man-Made Disasters by Nicola Doherty

2/5 Starsย – Click here for full review


I expected so much from this and… eh. It fell flat for me. I really wouldn’t suggest this ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

One Paris Summer by Denise Grover Swank

4.5/5 – Click here for full review


This is the PERFECT summer read. Like literally, it has enough cutesy moments to make you feel all fuzzy inside. I really loved this, it’s great!

June TBR

I feel like I should definitely stop setting myself a TBR because for the past two months I haven’t stuck to it… but hey, let’s see if this month is any different haha.

The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Okay, I am actually going to read this one this month! I got an eARC of this from NetGalley and have to have my review up soon so I will tackle this right after I finish The Loose Ends List. I’m quite excited for this one because I’ve never read a book by Jennifer L. Armentrout before ๐Ÿ™‚

Have any of you read these books? If not, what have you been reading this past month?

  1. My birthday is this month too (I turn 19)!!! I’ve only ever read the Lux series by J.L. Armentrout (and I loved it) so I’m really looking forward to reading The Problem With Forever too.

  2. I kinda want to read The Problem with Forever. I read the Lux series but don’t like it anymore, though I am interested in trying out some of the author’s contemporary works.
    Also, even my birthday is this month ๐Ÿ˜€ I turn 17 ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. Passenger has been on my TBR for too long…and Me Before You is a book I need to get to asap! My friend accidentally spoiled the sad ending to me which is super annoying (I hope she was joking though… seeing as we once tricked another friend into thinking that Tobias dies instead of Tris..) but I want to read Me Before You before the movie comes out. Great post! ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. I can’t wait to read Me Before You but I can tell that I won’t overly enjoy myself. I’m not expecting anything big and the hype there is bound to be some disappointment. It’s just with the movie coming out, I would like to read the book first before I go watch it. The Problem with Forever is also a TBR. JLA is a fabulous author. Excited to see what June has in store for you!

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ Me Before You is still a lovely book and I did enjoy it but it’s best to go into it with lower expectations so you get pleasantly surprised. The movie trailer looks absolutely amazing though, I’m ridiculously excited for it coming out!


  5. Happy birthday! I am alas, not a June Baby (November!). I’ve actually been looking to read Passenger, and the mounting positive reviews means I’m probably getting it at the bookstore today! I actually have a question for you: Where do you go to gets ARCs and books to review? I’ve heard that a few folks prefer Netgalley (I have an account there myself), LibraryThing, and sometimes giveaways from GoodReads. Do you usually go anywhere else or have any tried & true places you prefer?

    1. Definitely read Passenger, you won’t regret it ๐Ÿ™‚ In regards to your question, I get most of my ARCs through NetGalley. I find that once you get into the flow of things on that website and start getting accepted for books, you end up with a huge pile before you know it haha. My other method for receiving ARCs is through authors finding my blog and emailing me. Just comment on one of their blog posts and I’m sure they’ll be willing to send you a review copy of their work ๐Ÿ™‚ I suppose you can also enter giveaways, but I never have any luck with those unfortunately. I hope this helps!

  6. If it were 1963, I would love to read The Problem With Forever! I may even take a walk down (way down) memory lane and read the book. Will be awaiting your review before I invest my “book splurge” money. Ha ha.

  7. You never know. “They” say, everyone has at least one novel inside them. Your writing on the posts shows a vocabulary, style, and “that certain flair” that it takes to be a novelist. But you’re young yet, don’t let me rush you. You’ll know when you have a story, plot and characters that just demand to be “let out”.
