May wasn’t the greatest reading month for me since I only read 8 books. Work has started to pick up, so I don’t have as much time to read as I did before. I started Priory of the Orange Tree a few days ago and won’t finish it this month, but I think it will be featured in my Best Books of the Month for June. Fingers crossed!
As usual, here are my top two books of the month from differing genres. However, this month I chose two novels from the same genre, romance #sorrynotsorry.
Long Shot is a romance not to be missed as Ryan explores an abusive relationship. Readers watch as Iris springs from the ashes like the phoenix she is into a new version of herself.
F*ck Marriage is an emotionally heavy novel that gets at the core of relationships, marriage, and what happens after they end. F*ck Marriage is another Fisher novel in a long line of novels that proves her writing skills are second to none.
Furies of Calderon is a solid set up for a great fantasy series. I’m excited to jump into the sequel because, based on the synopsis, it seems as if the sequel’s plot could have been book one.
Meet Cute had the potential to be the perfect romance had Hunting leaned into the romance without sacrificing the plot.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The Lost Prophecy chapter is heartbreaking.
The Unhoneymooners is a fun and flirty romantic comedy that just misses the mark of a five star read.
Blood of Elves has a semi interesting story buried under everything else here. Will I go back and read the first novel? Probably not, but I will be tuning in for the television show.
On the Come Up is a great follow up novel to THUG that cements Thomas as an inspiring writer and not a one hit wonder.

I think 8 books is really good, plus The Priory of the Orange Tree should count as three books by itself!
Very true. I feel like I’m too hard on myself when it comes to reading. I just want to read all the books! haha.
Well you had a better month then I did- that’s for sure!
Hopefully June is better!
After reading 11 books in April I only read two books in May (granted, one was a 900+ page epic fantasy) but I enjoyed both immensely. I also started The Black Prism in May and I should be finishing that one soon.
Out of these I’ve only read the Harry Potter one, but I have The Furies of Calderon on my TBR. And I’m planning on picking up Long Shot during my summer break 🙂
Damn 11 books!
Still enjoying The Black Prism?!
I hope you enjoy Furies of Calderon and Long Shot!
I’ve heard great things about on the come up !! One of my favourite booktubers – kat from paperbackdreams mentioned it too. I’ll be def. Checking it out! ❤
It’s definitely worth reading. You could read it in one sitting, it pulls you in that much.
