April & May 2019 Wrap Up

Hi Everyone!

Happy first day of June! I hope you are making the most out of your time. I know I am. I have been home full-time since the second week of April and have been able to read and review more books. I love this opportunity. I am now nearly 8 months pregnant and the baby will come out soon so I am taking advantage of all the time I have to read and review more. I read 7 books in April and 11 books in May = a total whopping 18 books in 2 months. That’s my highest record ever!

I also have had the opportunity to watch all 5 seasons of The 100 on Netflix. The season I loved the most was with Lexa because she’s pretty hehe.. and the last season because they go back into space. I can’t wait for season 6. Some seasons were too brutal for me with all the bloodshed and lack of lighting that I didn’t enjoyed too much. I also enjoyed a documentary on Minimalists. I hoard too much of everything and this documentary inspired me to think twice before buying more. So far, it helped, I have only buy for my son to prepare for next school year instead of buying for myself.

  1. My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing. I rated it 4.5 stars!

2. Campaign Widows by Aimee Agresti. I rated it 3 stars!

3. The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa. I rated it 5 stars!

4. Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly. I rated it 5 stars!

5. All of Us With Wings by Michelle Ruiz Keil. I rated it 3.5 stars!

6. Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh. I rated it 5 stars!

7. Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan. I rated it 4 stars!

8. The Night Before by Wendy Walker. I rated it 5 stars!

9. A Stranger on the Beach by Michelle Campbell. I rated it 5 stars!

10. Again, but Better by Christine Riccio. I rated it 3 stars! (Though I DNF)

11. Birthday by Meredith Russo. I rated it 5 stars!

12. How Not to Die Alone by Richard Roper. I rated it 5 stars!

13. Naturally Tan by Tan France. I rated it 5 stars!

14. All the Wrong Places by Joy Fielding. I rated it 4.5 stars!

15. The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg. I rated it 5 stars!

16. The Story Web by Megan Frazer Blakemore. I rated it 5 stars!

17. The Girl in Red by Christine Henry. I rated it 5 stars!

18. A Mouse Called Julian by Joe Todd-Stanton. I rated it 5 stars!

Definitely feels great to have read and reviewed many books in two months ๐Ÿ™‚ I have since cancelled my Netflix subscription so that I can have more time to read. I really want to read Game of Thrones and start watching the shows. Maybe I could plan on it toward the end of this year.

I hope you all have a good reading month in June! How was your previous month’s wrap-up?

    What a terrific month, Jasmine! I feel like you’ve read all the hyped up books now and it makes me happy to see they are almost all worth it ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope you enjoy GOT – both the books and the show – but have to warn you they are extremely brutal and extremely well done all at the same time. I’m currently listening to the audiobook for book 1 and it’s taking me a while to finish it just because of how dense it is…
    Anyway, wonderful post, and good luck! โค

      Thanks Lorilin. My to-read shelf is overflowing and Iโ€™m just trying to get it to a manageable size haha At this stage in pregnancy, I definitely feel way better than the first trimester ๐Ÿ˜Š
