May Wrap-Up!

may.gif

Okay, sooooo, my hiatus for stress-management with the whole End-of-School rush was a bit longer than I was originally anticipating. As such, my poor blog became a bit of a second thought as I rushed to get everything settled this month. As can be seen by how my May wrap up is at the end of June! Oh well. It also didn’t help that I went on vacation for a week, traveling through the mountains with no internet…

So here are the stats for this month:


Books Read:

I do not include books that I DNF or couldn’t rate 3+ stars 

Lingering by Melissa Simonson

Lingering

5 Stars. Crazy, mind-boggling sci-fi that takes us on a ride not so distant from our present world. Terrifyingly realistic, phenomenal character building, and an eloquent writing style make this an actual must-read–for Sci-Fi buffs or otherwise! Does contain some triggers (adult language, sexual content/violence)

Crossline by Russ Colchamiro

Crossline

3 Stars. Unpredictable Sci-Fi that dives into a philosophical and thought-provoking time-travel story. Not too realistic or emotionally stimulating, but a great read for someone looking for a bit of sci-fi and mind-blowing while on vacation or just before bed.

Insynnium by Tim Cole

Insynnium

3 Stars. Mysterious fiction novel with some sci-fi elements; does contain some triggers (adult language, drug abuse, and sexual content). Very unpredictable, yet also very passive. Also very Canadian. I loved the writing style itself with very eloquent language, but I became somewhat bored with the plot and characters.

Adventures in Amarant: Short Stories Collection Vol. 1 by J.D. Bowens

Adventures in Amarant

5 Stars. My favorite read this month! Amazingly written collection of epic fantasy short stories, following the journeys of 4 brothers; three warriors and one sorcerer. Fantastic world- and character-building. Definitely a great prequel to the Adventures in Amarant trilogy!

Orphan’s Price by NAK Baldron

Orphan's Price

4 Stars. In this short epic fantasy novel, magic and technology intertwine as an orphaned boy with a mysterious past begins his journey towards taking the test to become a sorcerer. A bit choppy, and too short in my mind, I was left wanting more! I want to know more about Ren, the world, everything! Great start to the Chronicles of the Seventh Realm series.

Wrathborne by K.R. Doroc

Wrathborne

3.5 Stars. This is a short fantasy novel with a lot of politics and interestingly devious characters. It was a bit hard to get used to at first as each character’s POV is in the first person. But the world-building and intricate plot build this epic fantasy into a quick and engaging introduction to the beginning of the Wrathborne series.

Duchess of the Shallows by Neil McGarry and Daniel Ravipinto

Duchess of the Shallows, The

Stars. Review coming soon!

Khargaroth: A Tale of the Great Onion Knighthood by Mark B. Frost and Andrew Bunny

Khargaroth

4.5 Stars. Review coming soon!


Bookstagram:

So I did (kinda) 3 bookstagrams! Though none of them actually show the cover of the books… I was so focused on reading this month that I didn’t really take any true bookstagram pictures. But never fear! I will make sure to take tons of pictures in June for both the June books AND the May books 🙂
