Here are the books I read in May, from worst to best (in my opinion!)
7) Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
Ruby Red wasn't necessarily bad, but I didn't really like it either. The book is the first in a series, and even though I can't say I enjoyed myself listening to this one, I did continue on. I hope to finish the series this June!
6) Click Date Repeat Again by K.J. Farnham
Click Date Repeat Again, much like Ruby Red, wasn't bad or good. I had a really hard time getting into the story and connecting with the characters. However, the last fifth of the book was done so well and almost made up for the lackluster beginning and middle.
5) Saphhire Blue by Kersin Gier
Sapphire Blue is the sequel to Ruby Red, and I liked it so much more. If you didn't know, the series follows Gwenyth, a sixteen year old girl who learns she can time travel. I found her extremely grating and juvenile in the first book, but she really stepped up in this one. Emerald Green is the last book, and I can't wait to finish the series!
4) Atlantis Rising by Gloria Craw
I actually received Atlantis Rising from Netgalley in exhange for an honest review, so in the next week you'll be seeing my review. Here's a bit of a spoiler about my feelings: I really enjoyed this! It isn't the best thing out there, but I loved how originial the plot was. I thought this would be a run of the mill paranormal YA, but it wasn't.
3) Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger
Follow Me Back is an upcoming YA psychological thriller that is coming out on June 6! This was the last book I read in May, and I really ended with a bang. I had no expectations going into Follow Me Back except for knowing that the ending is wonderful. Let's just say that the rumors were true; the ending was fantastic and the book as a whole was as well.
2) Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
It was really hard to discern which book would get the top pick out of these two. Always and Forever, Lara Jean is the final book in one of my favorite YA contemporary series, and it didn't disappoint. Jenny Han has this way of writing that just speaks to me, and Always and Forever was no exception. You can read more of my thoughts here in my review.
1) Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Last but obviously not least is Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. This book wrecked me. I already was spoiled for a good bit of it, and I still was sobbing by the end. This was such a perfect end to the trilogy, and I can't wait to learn more about the Shadowhunter world. Clare outdid herself with this one.
So those were the 7 books I read this month! I am currently reading City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare and will then move on to who knows what!
