Who else felt that May was really busy? I feel like there was always something going on and it was almost impossible to give my full attention to reading or blogging. This month I somehow managed to finish four novels and two graphic novels. I read less than I usually do, but it was simply because I really could not find the time. I should have finished one more book this month, but this past holiday weekend was so busy, I had very little time to read. In other news, the Comment Challenge is back for the summer. If you’re interested in joining this challenge for July, a sign-up post will go up on the 3rd.

Favorite Book This Month:
My favorite book this month is hands down Roshani Chokshi’s A Crown of Wishes. I loved the setting, the writing, and the characters. I loved the world-building, the story, and the character development. Basically, I loved everything about this novel and it is officially my favorite read so far this year.
Least Favorite Book This Month:
All the books I read this month received a positive rating from me.
