So after having a really busy April and reading so much I have decided that I will take it easy in May and only pick a few books and if I happen to read more then great. So here is the couple of books that I have picked for May:
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas
So then the rest (if there are anymore) will be left to how I feel at the time.
Ok so this is extremely difficult as there aren’t that many series that I am caught up on and I feel bad mentioning them here so this list is going to be a little of my auto-buy authors whose work I really need to read.
Toil and Trouble: 15 Tales of Women and Witchcraft by Tess Sharpe
Rick Riordan books
Jennifer L Armentrout books.
Marie Lu Books
Victoria Aveyard books
Cassandra Clare books
Sarah J Maas Books
Marissa Meyer books
Untitled Loki novel by Mackenzi Lee
Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco
April has been a completely hectic month for me and I can not believe I still managed to read so much. This month I had 2 competitions for 2 different apparatuses so most of my afternoons and evenings were taken up with training and then flying to Sydney for the first comp.
The reason why I read so much was because I was completing the Magical Readathon where we had to sit our Hogwarts OWLs (see previous posts for more information) and I am pleased to inform you all that I completed all 12 exams. For me this is a lot of books and I think I might take it a bit easy in May to make up for this, not to mention I have a big list of books to review now.
So onto the wrap up.
- Cress by Marissa Meyer (from page 380 – finish)
- Fairest by Marissa Meyer
- Winter by Marissa Meyer
- Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
- Don’t Judge a Girl by her Cover by Ally Carter
- Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

So because I was either reading or training this month I didn’t get around to completing any reviews or recaps, but I have a few in draft. I am hoping to get myself into a position where I can post one of each a week. Lets see how I go in May.
I wasn’t really surprised at these words being the most common words used in Fantasy titles…. but here they are:
Ok so I am writing this post pretty early so this is basically my update for Monday to Sunday morning. There will definitely be more progress tonight but I guess you will just have to wait till the final wrap up to see how I go.
This week has definitely been a better week, thanks to allowing myself to listen to Scrappy Little Nobody aaa an audiobooks. Don’t get me wrong I really like audiobooks but I then to use them as a reread as I tend to tune out and I don’t retain the book as well. Although I definitely recommend this as an audio as Anna Kendrick reads it herself.
