This is my first full month on this blog, and it has been amazing! I managed to read 10 books which is pretty good for me. It was also my birthday this month, and I received a lot of awesome bookish gifts. I read a lot of amazing books this month. A few of these will even go down as some of my favourite books of all time!
The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan– A quick read. An nice introduction to short stories! Marine Keegan’s writing had so much potential, and it is devasting that the world will never get to experience her full potential.
The Martian by Andy Weir– I was not expecting so much humour! I found myself laughing out loud! I will admit I skimmed a few parts, but I overall really enjoyed it!
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid- One of my favourite books this year for sure! Evelyn Hugo is one of my new favourite characters! There is a review on my blog which you can find here!
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas– THUG is just as good as everyone says it is! So moving, hilarious, and relevant.
Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach– I did not expect a book about a seagull to be so inspirational. I am just going to quote part of the summary from goodreads because it truly sums up the story for me. “This is a story for people who follow their hearts and make their own rules…people who get special pleasure out of doing something well, even if only for themselves…people who know there’s more to this living than meets the eye.”
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery– I decided to finally read this one in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday! I am so glad that I did! Anne is so charming, and the story is just so sweet.
I plan to post a June favourites! I will talk about not only my favourite book this month, but also my favourite TV shows, music, movies, food, etc. So look out for that soon!
