May Wrap Up!

wrap-up

I knew I wouldn’t be reading much this month since college has been super, super busy and I have had a ton of work to do! I’ve been inundated with assignments and essays and it had left me with little to no time to read. Anything I have attempted to read has not held my interest. I have been in a slump. ugh.
I have also been having some general stress in my life trying to sort out what I want to do in life and being indecisive. It’s fair to say, it’s been a stressful month and I’m glad it’s over.


The first book I read in May was, of course, A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas. One of my most anticipated reads for 2018 and it was good! Wasn’t amazing or mind-blowing, but okay overall. Check out my post Thoughts about ACOFAS for some more of my thoughts!

Followed by another highly anticipated release, The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan.
This wasn’t as good as I was expecting but I did still really enjoy it.

The next book I finished was from my Non-Fiction TBR, Shockaholic by Carrie Fisher.
If you didn’t know by now (where have you been) I am a huge Star Wars fan and Carrie Fisher is one of my idols.
Rating: 4 Stars

Carrie Fisher
The next book I started was The Force Awakens. However, I didn’t finish and won’t be counting it in my reading goal either. You can read more about my thoughts and why I hated it in my DNF review here.

The fourth and final book I finished in May was Out of the Blue by Sophie Cameron.
Rating: 4 Stars
This book finally got me out of my reading slump! Hopefully, June will be a better reading month for me!

Thoughts On A Court of Frost and Starlight

acofas

So, since everyone ACOTAR fan, book-blogger will be reviewing ACOFAS I thought I would mix it up and instead just state a few thoughts rather than a full review. (As I’m sure you’re sick of them)

So let’s get on with my thoughts!

1) NOT ENOUGH AZRIEL
Why is there never enough Az?! I love him, I would’ve loved a chapter from his perspective for once. I always feel his character takes the back seat, I wish we could know more!

2) Rhysand just wants sex??
I was really looking forward to reading from Rhys’ perspective but he just thought about having sex with Feyre for the most part. I was kind of disappointed by his perspective, I really love Rhys, he’s one of my favourite characters but on the whole, he wasn’t as good as I hoped.

3) Oh my god, not another Feyre chapter!
After 3 whole books from Feyre’s perspective, it’s safe to say I’ve had enough of her.
Every time I got to another Feyre chapter I just rolled my eyes, she’s also kind of gone downhill?? She seems really pathetic in this book.

4) Nesta is the actual WORST person ever.
I have absolutely no idea how anyone likes or defends Nesta. I have hated her since ACOTAR and nothing she has done has redeemed her. She’s so unnecessarily bitchy and horrible. Terrible sister and overall shit person. I could write a whole post on hating Nesta…
I’m super anti-Nessian but this book really made me despise that ship.
Which brings me on to my next thought…

5) CASSIAN DESERVES BETTER
I hate with a passion that everyone ships Cassian with Nesta, he’s so sweet and lovely.
He deserves someone so much better. I know SJM is going to make Nessian canon but I will forever hate it with every fibre of my being.
On the brighter side… Cassian saying Amren looked like an angry snowball was hilarious.


Just to let you guys know, I am NOT hating on ACOFAS, I did enjoy it for the most part but it definitely wasn’t my favourite in the series. I look forward to the next book and reading from the others’ perspectives. (DYING Azriel to be a POV in the next one…)
Review on my GoodReads

Overall, I gave ACOFAS 3.5 Stars.
