May Reads 2016

I tried book blogging before...it didn't work out. I ramble too much. A few years I decided to post once a month with a small blurb about each book I read that month. It works better for me. So much so that I'm going to continue this year. You can click on any picture and it'll take you to the Goodreads page.

Right of First Refusal by Dahlia Adler

I love love love Dahlia and her books. RoFR was no exception. From story to characters to scenery I feel like these girls could be friends and their setting a place I'd like to hang out. Can't wait for the next book in the series. 

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

Wow...this book. This series!!!! I can't believe it's over. I couldn't get through it fast enough. So sad to see it end.


Dead Island, Dead Escape and Dead Frozen by Tim Moon

If you're a fan of zombies you'll really enjoy these horror and gore filled books set in beautiful, remote locations. Tim does a wonderful job of mixing friendship and humor with a not so happy outcome.

The 5th Wave, The Infinite Sea and The Last Star by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave and The Infinite Sea (not sure why pic is backwards, dumb internet) were a re-read for me. I was SO super excited for the Last Star to release this month. And now I wish it would go to that special place where books die. The only other book that has disappointed me this much was Allegiant. So there's that.

All American Boys

All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely

Rashad is absent again today. Such ordinary words that grow and gain so much power through this amazingly written, tough story. There's two sides to every story. Which will you be on? Right or wrong? I don't think this book could be read or listened to or discussed enough.

Boys of Summer by Jessica Brody

Best way to describe this is friendship of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants meets the angst of The Summer Series from a boys POV. I loved it. Each character felt so real and different that the chapters stood out in their own way with each POV change.

The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

Now THIS is how you end a series. Though book three dragged a little here or there I overlooked that because the plot made sense, the characters stayed true to themselves and it wrapped up nicely.

The Selection by Kiera Cass

Another re-read (had to before the 5th and final book) and a favorite. I adore this series. I didn't think I would when I first started it but it quickly changed my mind. 

When We Collided by Emery Lord

Can't even breathe (in a good way) after this ending. All emotions were bottled up until he realizes what "how we say goodby" is really about and then they came crashing down. A messy love story, beautifully told.
