Wrap-Up May 2018/ June TBR


Hello again fellow readers! Another month seems to have passed in a blur and I still have yet to finish all my college library books let alone the public library books 😛 This month, like last month seems to be another slow one when it comes down to reading as I have been quite busy and I have been in a kind of go slow when it came to reading (even though most of the books I’ve been reading I enjoyed). I’ll say one thing though, I have quite a busy tbr for the following month not just because I’ll be going away but because there’s still pressure to finish all the college library books before the summer 😛 But anyway…

Like in April, I have only read four books this month but I suppose there has to be some more credit counted for the monstrosity that was IT by Stephen King because that book was HUGE… Anyhow, the links in titles are to my own reviews.

The Mark of Athena (The Heroes of Olympus, #3)Angels & Demons  (Robert Langdon, #1)The Drowned WorldIt

  1. The Mark of Athena- Rick Riordan
  2. Angels and Demons- Dan Brown
  3. The Drowned World- J.G. Ballard
  4. IT- Stephen King

To put it straight I loved every book this month apart from the Drowned World which I thought would be right up my street 😦 The Mark of Athena was a lot better that the previous two books as I said but this is Rick Riordan we’re talking about 😉 Angels ans Demons definitely showed a lot of promise for the series to come and it was just one of those books I seemed to click with.. IT was a book I had on the back burner for a long long time mainly due to the sheer length of it and the fact that I wanted to get other books finished as well. IT wasn’t a bad or boring book, mind you, it was slow but the author wrote it in such a way that we never tire of his writing, but I’ll say the rest in my review because I can totally see why it became such a hit 🙂

Eight books, that’s a lot for one month and in all honesty I don’t think I can read them all 😛 The top four are the college library books I need to finish before the 13th of June when I finish college and the bottom four are the ones I’ll be taking with me to Namibia on the 19th. I strongly look forward to getting my home tbr under more control as I have now over twenty from both libraries I need to finish 😮 I bet other reviewers probably have even more but I know finishing books is something I really need to get a move on with 😛 Apart from Namibia I have other plans with my support workers like this library volunteering placement that still, after all this time hasn’t properly started… :/ But overall I just hope to get on well with my parents and whittle away at my endless tbr, but we bibliophiles love having endless tbr’s don’t we? 😉 🙂
