MAY WRAP UP | 2O17

This is going to be my new wrap up structure from now on and I’m really digging it, it feels a lot nicer than my old one. Let me know what you guys think!

This month I actually managed to do pretty well with following my TBR – I actually would have completed it this month if my library had gotten in Lumberjanes but for whatever reason they don’t have the new volume in the system yet.Β

Young Avengers Volume 1 by Kieron Gillen

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

And now a year later I am finally re-reading this so I can continue the trilogy.
I didn’t love this as much as I did the last time, everything happened very quickly and with little explanation but I definitely still recommend it!

Finally getting some answers also WHAT. Volume 1 may have been somewhat of a let down but volume 2 was certainly not.

PLOT TWIST I AM DEAD, SOMEBODY HAND ME A MISS AMERICA COMIC BECAUSE I NEED ANSWERS.

3.5? 4? I don’t know – it was all a bit rushed and I feel like the authors had a whole lot more they wanted to say. I will be forever sad that this got cancelled. Though I sound pretty solemn I do urge you guysΒ to do yourselves a favour and pick up this trilogy.

Amazing Spider-Man: Worldwide Volume 2

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†

I’ve noticed the writer seems to write mainly 1 plot comics. What I mean by that is, in his series, each book sort of has it’s own plot. Overall, this was better than volume 1 but I am hoping for more from the series.

I always feel so bad when I read Spider-Man comics with MJ in them. I just really hate her in comics.

Every time she rocks up I just:

This was pretty good but I still feel like the series is a bit everywhere plot-wise.

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

Well, that was underwhelming.

I went into this with an open mind, knowing that it didn’t have the best reviews but is written by a really popular graphic novel author (BKV) but I’m sad to say that I was still let down. I do have volume 2 out from the library because I don’t want to give up on the series just yet, but this will definitely determine whether or not I continue on.

 

FINALLY SOME BOOKS!

OH SNAP, THAT ENDING THO!

These books are seriously easy to read, they are honestly the best thing to listen to when you feel sick and just want to be a marshmallow and colour in. I cannot wait to finally finish my re-read of this series and get to the new book!

I LOVED this!! I don’t recommend reading it unless you’ve seen the show and movie but damn, if you like Veronica Mars you NEED to read this! It’s perfect in every way, and I know it’s one of my top 5 reads of the year.

This was pretty meh, I was feeling like DNFing this but I also wanted to see how the story panned out. Of his three novels, I think this was definitely my least favourite.

MAY FAVOURITES | 2017

If the words are in blue then you should click them!

NEWmonthlyfav_socialmedias

During the back end of this month I got much more into social medias than I ever really have before. I actually made a Facebook account (which I will never use except to talk to friends) and I also started using Twitter and Instagram more.

I decided that I want to be more interactive with you guys – my Ig will still be whatever I want it to be, but I really want to start including more shots of my books. I only have like 4 followers at the moment 😒 but I fully intend to start building up my account and actually using it.

Link to my medias because I have no shame: Instagram + Twitter

I started re-watching Grimm in the first week of May, I was a big fan a few years ago (around season 3) but I sort of fell out of love with the show. However, the show ended in March and so I was seeing a bunch of stuff about the show online. Mainly I saw a lot of posts on the main character’s love interest which got me really interested in the show again.

So far, I am really loving it (as I am writing this I’m on 2×21), I haven’t yet gotten up to the part where I stopped last time, but I’m really hoping I’ll be able to finish the show in the next month or two.

I LOVED this book! It was written by the creator of the tv series Veronica Mars so it was completely perfect. This novel was easy to binge, much the same way the show was. The characters were brought to life in the same ways as before and I loved this. I only read it at school but overall it only took me a week to get through! I loved this completely and cannot wait to read the sequel.

The posts I had the most fun writing this month were a discussion and an award.

I was lucky enough to be nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award and I really enjoyed writing my answers and questions for the people I nominated!

I also wrote a discussion about The Hype that surrounds readers. I really enjoyed writing it and finally got my format set out for my discussions feature on my blog.

May TBR | 2017

I’ve been really struggling lately with how to structure my wrap ups and tbrs because they’ve been feeling really flat and formulaic but I think I’m finally happy with them!

Also this month there is a readthon called the A-ZReadathon where basically you’re meant to read books and by the end of the month you will have read (via the title) the entire alphabet. I’m not sure if I will actually be participating but I thought I would mention it so you guys know about it!

Last month I meant to start The Name of The Star but due to my schedule I just never got to it, I do still want to read it though, so I’m really hoping I can give it a go.

And then there’s Dreadnought – the book I’ve been reading for what feels like years – in actuality, however it’s only been a couple of months. I have been reading Dreadnougt for only just over a month but I’m reading it pretty slowly because I’ve only been reading it at school.

The Marvels by Brian Selznick

Last year I read two of Brian Selznick’s novels and I really enjoyed the way they were told. I find the use of half illustrations and half text to be a really interesting story telling technique, they really help to bring the story to life.

The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line (Veronica Mars #1) byΒ Rob Thomas

Last month I became slightly obsessed with the Veronica Mars tv series. So as soon as I heard there were books I jumped at the chance to get them. The books are set after the movie (which was amazing, my otp sailed and I am still riding the high) which I watched a couple of weeks ago, so I am excited to finally be up to date with Veronica Mars.

Lumberjanes, Vol. 6: Sink or SwimΒ by Shannon Watters & Noelle Stevenson

This came out late last month so I’m hoping I’ll be able to get ahold of it at my local library. I’m excited to continue this series, the characters are all great and I’ve yet to be let down by the trades.

Reviews I Want To Write:

Strange The Dreamer, Waking Gods & Our Own Private Universe

Strange the DreamerΒ Β Waking Gods (Themis Files, #2)Β Β Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley

I read all three of these last month and because they were all arcs I do have to review them. I don’t really enjoy writing reviews but these are some pretty popular books and I figure why not just add to the massive piles of reviews already on the internet.
