May Wrap Up

I’m back!
I’m so sorry for my completely unexplained disappearance from the blogging world this month. It was entirely unplanned but unfortunately some outside factors had a bit of a sway in this. I’m going to try to post regularly in June and I’ll explain more with what happened farther down in this post.
In other news, I’ve decided to turn my wrap up back into a singular post. Given that I’ve gotten rid of my monthly book awards, my posts will definitely not be as long so I figured I’d save myself the effort of having to format TWO posts and make an entire 2/5s of my posts be just wrap ups and turn it back into one wrap up.

Amazon.com: Where Dreams Descend: A Novel (Kingdom of Cards, 1)  (9781250204356): Angeles, Janella: Books
Late to the Party by Kelly Quindlen, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®
Amazon.com: The Gravity of Us (9781547600144): Stamper, Phil: Books
  • Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles. I’ve seen this book hyped by many of my friends and it was something that I’d been meaning to read, but unfortunately it was a disappointment. It just did not hold my attention and it took me a while to finish it, as well as getting me into a fantasy reading slump. ⭐⭐
  • Late to the Party by Kelly Quindlen. This was a really good book! I’m definitely in the middle of a realistic fiction binge right now and I found this to be a very satisfying read. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Gravity of Us by Phil Stamper. This book was okay. Honestly, nothing really stood out about it, I found it interesting that the main character was into media journaling but there was absolutely no development to the romance and it happened out of nowhere. ⭐⭐⭐
Amazon.com: Miss Meteor (9780062869913): Mejia, Tehlor Kay, McLemore,  Anna-Marie: Books
Amazon.com: Michigan vs. the Boys (9781525301483): Allen, Carrie S., Allen,  Carrie S.: Books
Amazon.com: The Henna Wars (9781624149689): Jaigirdar, Adiba: Books
  • Miss Meteor by Anna-Marie McLemore and Tehlor Kay Mejia. Okay, so I’m not usually a fan of magical realism. It may be one of my least favorite genres ever. I also didn’t enjoy the first book by McLemore that I read. But this book? This was AWESOME! I loved it so much, it kept me hooked, I liked the writing, it was just amazing! Plus, one of the main characters is pansexual, not something we see much in books, and there was amazing trans rep! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Michigan vs. the Boys by Carrie Allen. Guys I loved this book SO much. Three words: Girls playing sports. As a girl who plays sports myself (well, just one sport. Fencing didn’t really work out) it is SO AMAZING to see a book like this because honestly? There’s so few of them. I think this is a super important book to read because it highlights a lot of the sexism that revolves around sports. Also it’s just an awesome book. Read it. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Henna Wars by Abida Jaigirdar. Okay, I know it’s kinda crazy that this is the first time I’ve read this. It’s a super popular book with people, it seems. And it was a nice read, too! I really enjoyed it, especially Nishat’s relationship with her sister, Priti, because we really need more awesome sibling relationships in books, please and thank you. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson
Amazon.com: The Sky Blues (9781534477858): Couch, Robbie: Books
Most Likely (Most Likely #1) by Sarah Watson
  • You Should See Me In A Crown by Leah Johnson. Yet another book that’s gotten really popular since it came out which I hadn’t read. This book was good! Shoot, I forget what happened in it (despite the fact that I read it more recently than several of these other books). But it was definitely good. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Sky Blues by Robbie Couch. This was a sweet book, I loved how everyone came together to help Sky and there were some great friendships here. It was a sort of predictable book, or maybe that’s just me being able to predict far out things (though, given that I’ve NEVER guessed the outcome of a murder mystery…) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Most Likely by Sarah Watson. This was a good book but I have some complaints. Don’t listen to the goodreads summary. Or any summary. Nowhere in the book does it say that one of these four girls are destined to be president. In the prologue, I guess it says that one of them will be president, but the way the goodreads summary says it– ‘destined to become president’ makes it seem like some ominous prophecy.
    Complaints aside, this was a really nice realistic fiction story. ⭐⭐⭐
Amazon.com: The Voting Booth (9781368053297): Colbert, Brandy: Books
Amazon.com: Perfect on Paper: A Novel (9781250769787): Gonzales, Sophie:  Books
Amazon.com: Pet (9780525647072): Emezi, Akwaeke: Books
  • The Voting Booth by Brandy Colbert. Honestly, I didn’t know how a book all about voting, set in one day would be pulled off. I was skeptical. But it worked, it really did. I loved how we got to know the characters and they got to know each other throughout the day, and the book really kept me engaged and educated. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Perfect On Paper by Sophie Gonzales. This was the PERFECT book to read when I was at the height of my realistic fiction reading phase–it’s basically the type of book I think of when I think realistic fiction. It was a really great book! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Pet by Akwaeke Emezi. I picked this book up on a whim and it was pretty interesting! There were times I was confused about the monsters and angels and I’ve figured out the monsters but I’m honestly still sort of confused about the angels but oh well, it was still an awesome book with a great lesson! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Amazon.com: The Edge of Anything (9780762467587): Carpenter, Nora Shalaway:  Books
Amazon.com: She Drives Me Crazy (9781250209153): Quindlen, Kelly: Books
Meet Cute Diary by Emery Lee
  • The Edge of Anything by Nora Shalaway Carpenter. Super important book, would definitely recommend. Has a great friendship in it and teaches some very important things! (excuse my overuse of the word ‘important’). ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • She Drives Me Crazy by Kelly Quindlen. I did enjoy this book, however I cannot get over the fact that Scottie CLEARLY blackmailed Irene into fake dating her. And she didn’t even realize it. Did the author even realize it? Because it’s literally never addressed in the rest of the book. That really rubbed me the wrong way. ⭐⭐⭐
  • Meet Cute Diary by Emery Lee. The disappointment I feel about this book…I’m wondering if I shouldn’t be so harsh on it because the way that the main character was acting (kinda self centered) for most of the book mighta been part of his growing process or whatever but I still feel super let down because I was so excited for this one. ⭐⭐

Well, I’m clearly terrible at sticking to my TBRs but I want to be able to finish some of the books I own, including some fantasy ones, because I hope to get out of my fantasy book slump. I’d also love to read LOTS of queer books for pride month and so if anyone has any recommendations, PLEASE suggest them in the comments below! Especially if you have any with rep that is less commonly seen in books!

The Monthly Bingo is created by A Colorful Bibliophile and it is totally amazing, so please head over there and check it out! It’s such a fun thing to do and I hope you’ll join in on it! You can find May’s board here and here is what I’ve done for this month!

Despite being inactive on my own blog, I did do a pretty good job of staying on top of other people’s posts, if I may say so myself. I was unable to comment on them, but I did read them (I promise, I read them!). Here are just a few that I enjoyed!

I wrote a measly one blog post in May, but it was a super awesome one! April @Booked Till Midnight and I collaborated once again to write a discussion post, this time on spoilers, and I LOVE how it turned out! We split it in two, just like last time, and you can find my half here and hers here.

May goals:

  • When you have school stuff, do it first!!! Writing/blogging comes afterwards (not saying I don’t do this already but my schedule is about to get a lot busier)
  • Drink more water (please?)
  • Blog a liiiiittle more (be on top of my posts more)
  • Remember to study (the end of the school year is, amazingly, coming right up!)❌✅

Well uuuuuuh…I definitely didn’t blog more. Haha. I did stay more on top of school stuff I think? I wouldn’t say I drank more water. And I studied once? For a quiz? We don’t have finals this year, so that’s nice.

June goals:

  • Blog some more?
  • Hang out with my friends
  • Don’t think about school after it ends
  • Follow a few more blogs

*If you’ll notice, I skipped the blogging updates section, simply because I have no blogging updates to give*

Okay, so what’s been going on with me this month? Where have I been?
Well, the first week of May, my only excuse for posting was that I didn’t know what to post. I have a bunch of book tags lined up and several book reviews, but I just wanted to write something new and exciting (not to say that book tags aren’t exciting) and I just didn’t know what to do.
Then, on Friday May 14, I injured my elbow while playing softball. The short story was that I landed on it while trying to stop a ball from getting past me, the longer story for any of you who actually understand the baseball/softball talk is that the other team had the bases loaded with one out and I was playing right field. The batter hit the ball to the pitcher, who tossed it to the catcher to get the out at home, but then the catcher threw down to first to try to get the batter out as well. However, the ball got past the first baseman and because I was backing up first, I ran to try to get the ball. I dove, but I didn’t manage to get it and I landed on my arm.
Immediately after I got up (yes, you’re getting the full story here), my arm felt really weird, it was all shaky and hurt a little (but surprisingly, not much). Whatever the case, I knew I couldn’t put my glove back on so I went back to the dugout (and a few parents fawned over me). I wasn’t feeling well enough to play in the rest of the game but we wanted to see if it was something I could sleep off.
It definitely wasn’t. I went to the doctor’s the next day and they told me to go to the ER to get an X-ray. It turned out that I’d fractured a bone in my elbow–a fracture small enough that they couldn’t even see in the x-ray (they could tell by the fluids that were gathering around my bone), but a fracture nonetheless. I got a splint, which made it very hard to type. Basically I couldn’t type. So that’s why I haven’t been blogging (typing with one hand is so agonizing).
On Monday (the 24th) I got my splint off and, while my arm is still injured, it’s okay enough that I just have to keep it in a sling until my next appointment by which time it will hopefully be better. I can type again, hooray! (though I probably shouldn’t be doing it much). And that is the story of why I haven’t been blogging.

Other stuff I’ve been doing this month include playing softball, until I got injured, and reading because what else can I do. Oh yeah, also school. My teachers are giving us lots of projects and tests (and terrifying latin assignments) before the end of the year. So that’s fun. I paid more attention to baseball? Because from April-October, Major League Baseball is basically my life? This season has been absolutely CRAZY so far, with some super competitive divisions and also six??? no-hitters??? somehow??? But honestly, really nothing else happened this month aside from breaking my first bone ever (seriously, this was my first big injury).

How was your May? Do you have any queer book recommendations for me? What do you think of my reading month?
As always, thank you so much for stopping by and have a marvelous June! (I wish I’d thought of ‘marvelous’ before, because ‘marvelous May’ sounds so much better than ‘marvelous June)
Stay safe and keep on reading!

  1. I’m glad to hear you’re well now, hope you get better soon💛💛💛 Late to the Party is one of my absolute favourite books, I related to it so hard! I’m glad to see you enjoyed Perfect on Paper and I’m reading the Henna Wars this month because I seemed to be the only person in the universe who hasn’t read that!!! My whole family conspired against me to make me drink more water and I’m glad to say it worked, because otherwise I’d be in my room 24 hours a day and be a general couch potato😂😂

    1. Thank you! I’m glad that you enjoyed Late to the Party, it was definitely such a nice read! Haha yeah I definitely felt like I was the only one who hadn’t read the Henna Wars–I was even surprised to see it came out in 2020 because it felt like everyone’s been talking about it for so much longer! Aaah I kinda wish my family would do that but then again, I’d probably complain if they did. Mostly my mom just tells me to drink more water 5 times a day. Haha yeah quarantine makes the ultimate couch potato out of everyone.
      Have an amazing June!

  3. oh my goodness you read SO MANY GOOD BOOKS!!! *AHH*
    i just got a copy of miss meteor from the library and i’m so excited to get to it!! i didn’t realize it was magic realism so i’m glad i know that before going in!!!
    AHHH i’m so glad you loved michigan vs the boys! i figured you’d vibe with the sporty-ness and it makes me so happy to hear you enjoyed it!!
    and the henna wars!! i would totally agree that the sister bond is absolutely golden! yesss we totally need to see more strong sibling bonds in ya!
    i’m sorry most likely wasn’t your favorite! i would agree that the whole president thing is definitely over emphasized (i’m realizing that i probs overemphasized as well). while it’s interesting to see where the characters will end up it’s really about friendship
    PERFECT ON PAPER!!! it has my whole heart and i’m glad you were able to get to it in the height of your realistic fiction phase!!!!
    yesss the edge of anything is such an important book that doesn’t get nearly enough recognition! and friendship is always a yay in my book!!
    as for she drives me crazy, yea that’s a really good point. i’ve seen quite a few reviews saying that and i would have to agree with both you and them. and the fact that irene had to come out (not on her own terms) was also not it!
    thank you so much for sharing my goat post!! i’m glad to hear your arm is getting a bit better! i’m still working on putting together my list of queer books i want to read in the next month but i’m especially hyped for one last stop!!! any way, hope you have a great june and apologies for the rambling and overuse of exclamation marks lol

    1. Hahaaaa I definitely did have a good reading month but I guess that’s what happened when you can’t type or whatever.
      Yeah, Miss Meteor is magical realism but there’s not much of the magic-y stuff. One of the main characters arrived to earth on a meteor and stardust is slowly taking over her body, but that’s it.
      Yeah, I REALLY enjoyed Michigan Vs the Boys! I was a little nervous to read it because I knew it was gonna be heavier and I was sorta into reading light things, but I still LOVED it.
      Haha it was about time that I read The Henna Wars but I totally loved the sibling relationship. YA focuses too much on romance and not enough on family and friendships, in my opinion.
      Haha it’s okay about Most Likely! I did enjoy it as a book, I was just looking for a sort of ‘prophesied to be president’ thing and that never happened. No, it’s totally fine, I mean the goodreads summary says it too so that’s fine!
      Yeah, I’d never heard of Edge of Anything until my mom got it from the library and I’m kinda surprised I’d never heard of it. It’s really important!
      Yeah, I actually really enjoyed She Drives Me Crazy but I had to lower my rating because of the blackmail and forcing to come out. I don’t really understand why they couldn’t just pretend to be friends, like sure maybe there’d be a BIT less stir about it, especially where Tally is concerned, but you can’t force someone to come out like that. And honestly it seemed like the author was…totally oblivious that Scottie actually blackmailed Irene? Like the way that it was never addressed and the next day, Irene was like, ‘no, i chose to do this. i wouldnt be doing it if i didn’t want to’ that just seems a bit like the author brushed it away.
      No problem, I LOVED the goat post, it was probably one of the funniest, if not the funniest post I’ve read in all my time in the blogging world! Ooooh nice, I look forwards to seeing your list of queer books, I may have to steal a few haha. I hope you have an awesome June as well! And no worries about the rambling, I love talking books!

      1. hmmm sounds interesting! that makes me even more excited to try it out!!
        10/10 agree!! platonic relationships, friendships, and sibling bonds can be just as impactful but for some reason there are very few. truly tragic
        they definitely could have just removed the blackmail from the equation, had irene be out already, or found another way to make tally jealous if that was strictly necessary. tbh a lot of scottie’s suspect behavior is just brushed under the rug during the entire book
        omg thank you so much!! you saying that literally means so much to me : )
        hehe i’m definitely going to read felix ever after (FINALLY) but i’m still trying to scrape together a list lol.

      2. I hope that you do!!!
        Yes, exactly!!!
        Oooh, that’s true. I didn’t think about it. I mean, I feel like the author wanted to add that ‘plot twist’ sort of thing in there…like Scottie suddenly comes up with this awesome way to get back at Tally because she learns this info, but obviously it still woulda been waaaaaaay better if that hadn’t happened, even if it was slightly less dramatic. Forcing someone to come out is not okay.
        YES I really hope you enjoy Felix Ever After, it’s SUCH a good book.

      3. the more I think about it the more it irks me. thank you for bringing this up. I’m currently reading hani and issue’s guide to fake dating, and it handles a similar situation SO MUCH BETTER. one girl is out, and the other isn’t, but before they do the whole fake dating scheme they discuss it and make sure each other are comfortable and not feeling pressured. there is a whole discussion about it that makes me realise even more how it was poorly handled in She Drives Me Crazy

      4. don’t feel bad at all! I did really enjoy the book, and I still do, but it’s also important to acknowledge when things weren’t handled in a good way. I’m glad we are able to discuss it and that I’m more aware!! I hope you do get to it soon, it is SO GOOD

  5. Hey everyone. Shine here. I love reading your blogs, but never commented on them.

    For Phoenix’s questions. This month hasn’t been good for me just like April. (I think I’ve posted the reason why on my blog.)

    Unfortunately, I don’t have any books to recommend.

    I do love reading your book blog for reading month.

    1. I know, Perfect On Paper was AWESOME! So was Henna Wars! Yesss we totally need more family and friendships in books, it’s always all about the romance! I was super disappointed about Meet Cute Diary, as it was one of my most anticipated releases as well, I strongly urge you to try it anyways because I do think the jerkiness or whatever might be part of Noah’s growth, I just really couldn’t handle it there. The Sky Blues was AMAZING! Yeah, I don’t really mind the predictableness, it was just something I noted! Thank you, I hope you have an amazing June as well! (and I cannot even believe that it’s already June).

    wow you read so many books in May haha, that's amazing! i love that you've been reading tons of realistic fiction / contemporary books, bc YA contemporary is one of my favorite genres to read hehe. i loved both Perfect on Paper and You Should See Me in a Crown, they were so heartwarming and fun 🤩 i can't wait to check out Kelly Quindlen's books sometime! also i agree with your thoughts on The Gravity of Us – i reallyyy hated the instalove lmao :')) and i'm sorry to hear that you didn't like Meet Cute Diary 😩 hope June is a great month for you!!

    1. Thank you!

      Haha yeah when you can’t really type you have a LOT of time for reading. Yeah, I usually read fantasy but I just read a fantasy book this month and it took me a long time to finish it and I’d also just come off reading some realistic fiction that I read super fast and really enjoyed so I was just like, may as well start reading some more of those! Perfect On Paper was so good, and I’m glad to read You Should See me In a Crown because I’ve seen so many people rave about it! Oh, I hope that you check out Kelly Quindlen’s books, they’re pretty good books! Really heartwarming, though…She Drives Me Crazy is a bit problematic?? I mean, the main character kinda…forces someone to come out…
      Yeah, I dunno, The Gravity of Us was just not what I was looking for and the insta love was definitely blegh. I liked the conversations and like respecting each other’s boundaries or whatever but parts of it were just weird. Ugh I know I really wish I’d enjoyed Meet Cute Diary, I was anticipating it so much!!! I hope you have an awesome June as well! Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Aww thank you for mentioning my post! It means a lot! ❤ I actually felt the exact same for The Gravity of Us. The book felt so predictable in my opinion. The Sky Blues was also predictable. I wish they didn't reveal the e-hacker from the start. Nevertheless, it was adorbs! I've been meaning to read She Drives Me Crazy, but blackmailing is a big nono for me so we'll see. Meet Cute Diary looks super soft, but I'm not sure anymore as a lot of people are saying it let them down. Overall amazing wrap up! Have a fabulous June!! 😀

    1. No problem, it was a great post! Yeah, The Gravity of Us was just eh. Honestly, I don’t mind that they revealed the hacker from the beginning because it was still cool that they got to figure out HOW he managed to do it but yeah, I feel like a lot of books like that, the person ends up being someone different than they expect. But yes it was soooo cute.
      I knowwww I was so sad about that happening in She Drives Me Crazy. The saddest part is that it was literally never addressed, to a point where I’m not entirely sure the author noticed that the main character blackmailed. Especially given that the main character literally forced the love interest to come out…it’s just not cool. Yeah, Meet Cute Diary was also really disappointing, it’s been so many people’s anticipated releases and just has not lived up to those for lots of people! The main character just acts really rude towards his friend in the middle of the book and it’s just all around eh. But maybe you’ll enjoy it more than I do! There’s definitely a big character arc towards the end, the rudeness just got to be a little much for me to the point that I couldn’t really ignore it. I don’t know.
      Thank you so much! I hope your June is awesome as well!

  9. Looks like you had a pretty good month. Sorry about the injury, though.
    And, erm, queer book recommendations.
    Well, The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls, As I Descended, The Love Curse of Melody McIntyre, The Raven Cycle (queer rep isn’t until the later books, but it’s still a really good series), Tell Me Again How A Crush Should Feel, the Magnus Chase series ( if you haven’t read it already), Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda (which you’ve probably already read, but I’m recommending it anyway), Leah on the Offbeat, and Queens of Geek.
    I have varying opinions on these books, so it would be interesting to see if your opinions were different than mine, if you decide to read any of them.
