May has been a really successful reading month for me with 7 books read! Enjoy reading my summaries of the books I read in may.
The Wrongful Death by Kenneth B. Anderson
I read this book as part of a blog tour. Check my review here!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
I’ve wanted to start this series since falling in love with the Netflix movie, I was not disappointed! I read the whole book on a Sunday morning and simply adored the story and the writing. Definitely looking forward to the next in the series!
The Foundling by Stacey Halls
This is a really interesting novel based on a real hospital in 17th century London where women would give up their babies to the care of the hospital. In the foundling Bess comes back to the hospital 6 years on for her child but its revealed that the child has already been collected by the mother. This leads us on an emotional and mysterious journey in told by two startlingly different women. Definitely recommend to anyone who enjoyed The Familiars/historical fiction.
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
I read this novel in under an hour sitting under a tree on a sunny Bank Holiday. I found the Illustrations beautiful, full of inspiring quotes, and I adored the last chapter of the book. However I don’t fully know what makes this book poetry other than the layout but I might just be being an idiot. Definitely targeted to young women, it’s a worth a read especially as it’s so quick.
Normal People by Sally Rooney
With the recent popularity of the BBC adaptation I decided to give this popular bestseller a go. Despite reading a lot of critisism about the writing, I found it flowed well and was simple to read making it accessible to many people. The story itself was actually really quite sad centering on the coming of age of two troubled young people in love.
P.S I still love you by Jenny Han
Adorable, the second instalment of this madly popular romance lived up to my expectations. Lara Jean and Peter are in a real relationship and we get to read all the emotions and complications in their budding romance. This is a nice easy read and good break if you’ve been reading heavier books.
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
The final book in the trilogy is probably the weakest of the three. However, it’s still a lovely book to read.
