Hey there, guys! it’s again the time to look back at the past month and tell you about what i read…! So, this was an okay month, though it was a weird one because as much as i read i had some days that i just couldn’t concentrate at all, then i’d read some books kind of fast, and then fall again into the slump… it’s completely annoying and i don’t know what to do about it… At least i found a new trilogy i’m really interested on reading, so i think at least i’m not on a slump right now.
And now, let’s talk about the books i read this past month, shall we?
Kill The Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky ♥♥♥♥
After four friends *accidentally* kidnap one of the members of their favorite boy band thing start going wild, between them, with the guy and everything around. This is a book about fangirling gone wrong, i had a few aha! moments because of the book and it made me thinkabout a bunch of things i wish i realized back in the day. I absolutely enjoyed reading it and would recommend fondly. It was fun and full of incredible wtf moments… i wrote a full review for this book, you can find it here.
The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan ♥♥♥♥
As punishment for his actions in the last war against Gaia, Zeus transformed Apollo into a mortal teenager until he mends his doings. Now, leaving as a human Apollo will meet some interesting people, he will learn that being mortal isn’t as easy as it looks and will have to face different trails before he can become a god again. I liked the book, it wasn’t what i expected, but it was fun… and i always love to come back to this world were gods are real and everything is full of wonder. I wrote a full review for it that you can read here.
George by Alex Gino ♥♥♥♥
This is the story of a young girl that was born in the body of a boy and how she wanted to get the part of a female character in the school play so people would finally see her as what she was, a girl. I totally loved this book, i think it’s important that books like this are available for youngsters because that way they can find answers in a younger age which can help them start being their real selves earlier in life and also it can show them they are not alone in this and validate them as any other person. My review for the book can be found here.
Playlist For The Dead by Michelle Falkoff ♥♥♥♥
In this book we meet Sam, a teenager who just found his best friend committed suicide. Hayden, his friend, left him a playlist to help him understand the reasons he had to do what he did. In the book we learn along with Sam about what happened in the last few months in the life of Hayden and what pushed him off the egde. It’s a book about mistakes, friendship and learning to live life to the fullest. I enjoyd this reading very much. If you want to read my review of the book, you can find it here.
More Than This by Patrick Ness ♥♥♥♥♥
Man, this author owns my heart. This book is the story of Seth who woke up in a strange and disolated place after he committed suicide. The story navegates in the world he woke up, and the one where he decided he didn’t want to live anymore. This book is a wonderful work, it made me think a lot about life, taking chances and appreciating what you have when you have it. I haven’t written the review for this book, but i hope i’ll get to it soon.
Poe Dameron #2 by Charles Soule, illustrations by Phil Noto ♥♥♥
Second issue of this comic that follows Poe as he is looking for the information that got him to Lor San Tekka in The Force Awakens (or so i think …). This issue wasn’t much about Poe but about the one that will be a main villian (i guess..), the story it’s interesting though i wanted more Poe. I think i’ll be enjoying this comic for the next few months :).
Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley ♥♥♥♥ (4.5)
The story of an agoraphobic, the girl that wants him as her essay to enter her college of choice, her boyfriend and everything in between. This book had such an amazing dynamics, i enjoyed it very much. I loved the characters and the way the story was presented. This is, without doubt, a book i’ll be recommending a lot to people that want to know a little more about mental illness and friendship. You can find my review of the book here.
Angelfall by Susan Ee ♥♥♥♥ (4.5)
Oh, i’m so in love! Yes! this is what i was looking for, thank you very much. So, it’s been a while since i obsessed over a book, and now this came to my life in the perfect moment and everything is great. Truth, i’m worried about what could happen but i don’t care right now because i enjoyed reading this so much!
I forgot to tell what it was about… a few weeks before the story begins angels descended from heaven and destroy life as humans know it. Penryn, her mother, and her sister tried to find a safe place one night but things went wrong. Paige, Penryn’s little sister, was abducted by the angels, her mother run away and after a fight between angels, Penryn found herself taking care of a wounded angel. That’s a summary of the beginning of the book more or less… Review may be coming soon …
Classic of the month – The Miser by Molière ♥♥♥
So, i started reading 1984 when my sister got us theatre tickets for The Miser. Since i wasn’t planning on going to the theatre without knowing the story i read it a few days before and left 1984 for June.
I’ll say i wasn’t a fan of the play, it felt a little too much for my taste, but it was a quick reading, at moments ridiculous, at moments funny… Not the favorite classic i read this year, but an okay reading ( i would’ve hated if i had to read it for school).
And those were the books i read this month! Did you have some good readings this May? Hope you did and that you do this June too :3
‘Til Next Time 😉
