May Wrap-Up & June TBR

Hello my beautiful doves! I have decided to combine my wrap-up and tbr into one post moving forward. It is just easier that way. I had a decent reading month but I wish I could have gotten through more. Luckily we are starting with a fresh slate in June and I am taking part in multiple readathons! They always tend to motivate me to read more. Let’s get to it!

May Wrap-Up


  • Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid – ★★★★
  • From Little Tokyo, With Love by Sarah Kuhn – ★★★★
  • To the Warm Horizon by Choi Jin-young – ★★★★
  • Hang the Moon by Alexandria Bellefleur – ★★★★★
  • You and Me on Vacation by Emily Henry – ★★★★★
  • A Dowry of Blood by S. T. Gibson – ★★★★★
  • In the Ravenous Dark by A. M. Strickland – ★★★.75


  • Know My Name by Chanel Miller – ★★★★★


  • Total books read: 8
  • Total pages read: 2.7k
  • Average rating: 4.53

The books I read were of quality, but I was hoping to read at least 10 books in May. As always, I don’t beat myself up too much about it. I am happy with my month for the most part. I only regret I wasn’t able to complete the #AsianReadathon. I read 3/5 of the books, so at least I read more than half. I do plan to read the other two as soon as I can!

Did you read any of these books? What was your favourite May read?

June Readathons

I plan to just mood read for these three readathons. I have so many books to choose from that I am able to do that. So I will just share the different announcements and let you know in the wrap-up what book went towards which readathon.
