May 2017 Wrap-Up & June Anticipated Releases

May was a pretty good month for me.

In terms of reading? Posssibly. Blogging? Eh, not really.

But, in terms of non-bookish life. Absolutely, because 1) I finished all my exams 2) I’m pretty sure I aced them and 3) it’s finally summer!

Ah, summer. That magical time when you actually get to do the things you want? Read until dawn? Of course. Scroll through twitter all day long? You got it! Finally stop procrastinating writing book reviews? Yeah… sure…

My Reads This Month

  • Cold Summer by Gwen Cole | 3/5 stars.
  • Geekerella by Ashley Poston | Check out my review for it!
  • The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon | 5/5 stars and my favorite for this month!
  • Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde | 4/5 stars.

My Posts This Month

I didn’t get to post quite as much as I wanted due to exams, but I did manage to sneak a few posts in!

My Faves From the Blogosphere

Other Exciting Developments This Month

I have gotten more views on my blog this month than any other month so far! Squee!! I guess that means I’m getting better, right?

I just passed 200 followers on my twitter. For a reason I’m not sure of… most of my tweets are incoherent ramblings, but I am happy nonetheless.

I’m slowly but surely catching up on my Goodreads challenge of 70 books. Sure, I’m still a good 9 books behind but I’ve got the whole summer ahead of me and I read more this month than I have in a while!

June Releases I’m Psyched For

Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser

After my friend Mia’s stunning review of this book, I immediately added it to my TBR. Fantasy isn’t exactly my forte, but this premise sounds unique and refreshing, and I can’t wait. Releases June 6th.

Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali

I’m really psyched for this one. As weird as it sounds, I love stories about character’s having an identity crisis. They are just so relatable – the question of who am I supposed to be? Plus, a girl in a hijab on a book cover is huge. Releases June 13th.

The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I do not know a soul in the book world that isn’t incredibly excited for this to release. I love historical fiction, and it looks like this book is going to do it right! Releases June 27th.


How did May go for you guys? Do any of your June TBRs match mine? Tell me in the commenets! 🙂

Stay bookish,

Jordyn

  1. Yes, I’m finally out of school for summer break as well, and it’s been glorious! Haven’t gotten much reading done yet because I’ve been on vacation, but I’m slowly getting out of my reading slump, so that’s good! Also, I’m super excited for The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue as well! So many June releases that I’m excited for! 😀

    And thank you so much for linking back to my post about book blogger envy! ❤

  2. This is the first post of yours I’ve read and I love it! I read Geekerella last month and absolutely adored it. It’s so cute isn’t it! ^.^ Seeing that The Sun is Also a Star is your favourite book this month, I better pick it up! Everyone loves it!

    Thanks for the great post! Now I’m gonna enjoy a little gander round a few more of your posts. 😀

  3. I read 8 books in May but I was mainly busy with exams (freaking APs), final project (which I aced) and GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL AAAAAAA (but I did it and it wasn’t that hard and I was valedictorian so yay even though there are only 80 people in my class.. yeah). Anyway I just looked up A Gentleman’s Guide yesterday and I WANT SO MUCH jkal;sol;dfadjkl basically. *nods*
