May Wrap Up

Books! So after I dropped everything to read The Raven King, the first Trials of Apollo book, The Hidden Oracle, by Rick Riordan came out. I left everything where I dropped it, more or less, to listen to that book. See where my priorities are? Apparently with The Raven Cycle and Rick Riordan's books... Sometimes I'm amazed that I make any progress on my TBR pile.

As usual, most of these have been reviewed on my book blog.

Books read this month:
  • The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater. Oh my gosh. I am so in love with this series. I have no words. And Ronan and Adam's love story warms my heart.
  • Demigods and Magicians by Rick Riordan. Collection of three short stories where Greek and Egyptian worlds collide.
  • March by Geraldine Brooks. A take on Mr. March's story from the classic Little Women.
  • The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan. New series starring mortal Apollo in all of his bisexual glorious-ness.
  • Cress by Marissa Meyer. Took me forever to read, but really enjoyed it.
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Very good book set in the Grisha universe. Interesting characters.
  • The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner. A book following three friends for their last year of high school--a much better read than I was expecting.
  • The Selection by Kiera Cass. The story of 35 girls competing to win the hand of the crown prince.
Challenges completed this month:
  • A book you've been highly anticipating: The Raven King
  • A short story: Demigods and Magicians (it's three short stories, that counts right?)
  • A stand alone book: March 
  • A book someone recommended to you: Cress
  • A book by an author from your country: The Hidden Oracle
  • A book with multiple points of view: Six of Crows
  • A book with a beautiful cover: The Selection
Favorite book read this month:
The Raven King, I just loved this series so much. 

Least favorite book read this month:
The Selection. I was less than impressed.

Book haul:

I was pretty good this month, only three books!

In other news, dance is going well, it is still fun and good exercise. I went on a couple of dates with one guy and I have been enjoying that. I trained in my new position at work and feel like an official lab tech now. Overall, things are pretty good!
