May 2018 Wrap Up

Hello there! Welcome to my first monthly wrap up ever of the year!

I can explain this situation. From January to April, I barely read. I tried to read at least one book a month and in April, I only read 2 books. So, why bother to do a wrap-up? You get me?

BUT LADIES and GENTLEMEN, in May, I read a total of 6 books and I’m proud. Let’s get into it!

1.  Yesterday 

Author: Felicia Yap

Dystopian/crime/thriller/sci-fi

I think that the idea of this book is brilliant, but some parts did not make sense to me. I loved the plot twist. The story line was gripping but I didn’t quite like the ending, because it was a bit of everything. I wished it ended as a cliffhanger or didn’t have the happy part for the ending.

Rating: 3 / 5 star

2. What Milo Saw 

Author: Virginia MacGregor

General Fiction

I love the story line, the characters were all amazing, especially Milo, the MC. He taught me a lot. As I read the book, I didn’t think it amazed me. It was just another story that was really meaningful but I didn’t feel connected to it. However, the ending was super touching. I was a little bit emotional when I finished this book.

Rating: 4/5

3. Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda

Author : Becky Albertalli

YA, Contemporary

I adore this book so much. A must read!

Rating: 5/5 star

 

 

4. Emergency Contact

Author: Mary H.K. Choi

Ya, contemporary, romance

I could relate to this story like crazy mad! I had basically been through the story line! Effortlessly one of my fave read of the month.

Rating: 5/5 star

 

 5. From Twinkle, With Love

Author: Sandhya Menon

YA, contemporary, romance

This book was cute, it gave you that fuzzy feeling. But it was just too predictable and the story line was too cliche for me. Nevertheless, I love the more frequent mention of Indian culture towards the end. A good read but more could be done, I guess?

Rating: 4/5 star

6. American Panda

Author: Gloria Chao

YA, contemporary

I adore, adore this book. It started off very fluffy and “seemed” to be a light and cute read but it was more than that. This book is very important. The representation was just on point. I could relate so much to it.

Rating: 5/5 star

 

Thank you to Pansing for sending me 3 of the books mentioned above. All these books are available in all good bookstores, so make sure to check them out!

Till I see you in the next wrap up post (which might be in a gazillion year haha).
