May Wrap-Up // getting back into the swing of things

Hello hello! I don’t know about you all, but May was a very busy month for me. I finished school, took a short vacation, then moved and started a summer internship. I also got the chance to read many great books, especially during my short break time.

I read some absolutely amazing books this month, including some of my most anticipated releases of the year: Book Lovers by Emily Henry and Yerba Buena by Nina LaCour. I also re-read I Kissed Shara Wheeler, and got out of my comfort zone by reading 3 nonfiction books, one fantasy, and one sci-fi! Not all of these attempts were successful, but some of them were amazing, like Clint Smith’s How the Word is Passed. Overall, I would say it was a pretty solid reading month. As always, my full list of books is under the cut.
