March, April and May Wrap-Up!

Hey, bookish friends! This post will be longer than the usual wrap up sinceΒ I also included the books I’ve read last March and April. I did not write any personal thoughts about the books I’ve read. Instead, I added the Goodreads’ link of each title so you can visit and read the synopsis. And as usual, I put my rating for each book.

If only I can read 20 books a month then I would be tearing down my TBR list. But May was a good reading month for me! I was able to catch up with my Goodreads Challenge (though in a week, I’ll be behind again). I could’ve added at least three or more books if I wasn’t that engrossed with watching Anime. -__-“

I don’t regret anything though. I think I spent this month well. πŸ™‚

How many books have you read this month?

February Wrap-Up!

School stuff will bury me alive. I’ve been busy and read only 8 books. It’s still good because I’m still 4 books ahead of schedule! Round of applause for me.

So without any more stalling … here’s my late February Wrap-Up.

1. Dirty Pretty Things by Michael Faudet – Rating: 4/5

I borrowed this from a friend because I had an idea of the blackout poetry that I did. So basically, its purpose is for me to take a picture of this book for me to post on my Instagram. But then, an angel named Karina DMed me about this book and we ended up buddy reading this book.

2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – Rating: 4/5

This book is SO cute. If this book is a human, I’d totally date him. I love the characters and the vivid way of describing Paris. Also because of St. Clair’s messy hair and oozing confidence.

3. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – Rating: 3/5

I didn’t like this book as much as I liked the other two. Lola’s a bit extreme for me. Also, Cricket’s scenes are way too limited. I wish he has more exposure because he’s adorable. And honestly, I’d love to read more about him than Lola.

4. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins – Rating: 5/5

THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING. I felt everything up to my bones. Isla is such a relatable character and sometimes, it felt like I’m on her shoes. And Josh! Oh my gosh, I love Josh so much. If I saw him I’d totally creep him out and ask him to draw me like one of the French girls.

5. Playing the Player by Lisa Brown Roberts – Rating: 4/5

I totally love the first chapters up to the middle part of the book but the ending was flat and it felt like it was forced. But it was fun and easy read hence the 4 stars.

6. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne – Rating: 5/5

I discovered this book through Tashapolis’ YouTube channel. I was super intrigued because she recommended it. I knew that I must read the book. So I grabbed the eBook copy of the book and started to read it. I finished it one sitting because I SUPER UBER DIG this type of stories. They hate each other at first and will eventually end up together. The “hating” part is what I like the most about this book. Characters are adorable.

7. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – Rating: 5/5

I have this book for almost two years but I just read it now. I’m super ashamed of myself because I did not grab this as soon as I can! It was lovely. Like, if I sigh right now … it would be the oh-my-gosh-I-love-this-book type of sigh.

8. PS I Still Love You by Jenny Han – Rating: 4/5

I’ve read this book as soon as I finished reading the first book. 4 stars because I wasn’t really a fan of what happened at the end. It did not satisfy me. It doesn’t have the same impact as the first book. I was confused the whole time, about their feelings and what’s actually happening. I still love Lara Jean tho.

I’ve read many romance novels. I blame February for this love vibe. It’s the sole reason why I read these type of genre.

But who am I kidding? Even though I’m not really into contemporary romance, I totally love these books I’ve read.

January Wrap-Up!

The best way to end the month of January is to share my wrap-up! I’ve read 12 books this month. I’m supposed to read just 9 books but I went ahead and grabbed as many books as I can. Now, I’m 4 books ahead of my Goodreads’ challenge!

There’s a lot of books so I’m going to start! I’ll be including the rating a short review so you’ll have an idea.

1. Mr. President by Katy EvansRating: 5/5

This book is scorching hot! I totally dig the President thingy. The characters are loveable and the scenes were amazing! There are moments that Charlotte annoyed the hell out of me but Matt Hamilton is bae and his hotness outweighs the whines of Charlotte.

2. Vicious by VE SchwabRating 5/5

This is the third book of VE Schwab that I’ve read. It’s so beautiful! The characters are twisted and it’s freakin’ phenomenal. It’s the battle of who’s the villain and the hero. I have numerous guesses on who’s who. But dang it! None of my guesses were right. I was totally blown away by how it ended.

3. Commander-in-Chief by Katy Evans Rating: 4/5

I was so happy for both of them. They got the ending they deserve. I got the ending that I want. But … it doesn’t appeal to me as much as the first book did. Hence, the 4 stars. I still love Matt Hamilton, though.

4. Our Last Night by Taylor AdamsRating: 5/5

This book is one of those hidden gems that needs to be read. It’s packed with 40% thrill, 30% mystery, 20% gore, and 10% humor. A total of 100% awesomeness and a good read.


5. Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans WelchRating: 5 Gelato/5

I love this book so so so so so so much! I couldn’t find more words on how to describe this book. It just makes me want to go to Florence, Italy. But, you know what? I’m just going to pack and vavooom ✈.

6. Brood X by Michael Phillip Cash Rating: 3/5

I actually loved the concept of the book. It’s just that .. the protagonist, Seth, annoyed the hell out of me. So I skipped a lot of pages and I couldn’t be gladder to finish it.

7. To Fall For You by RJ GrovesRating: 3/5

I loved the first few chapters of this book. I also loved the multiple POVs before I was bombarded by the sudden switch of POVs within the same chapter. The characters are relatable, though.

8. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi MeadowsRating: 5/5

This book made me laugh 90% of the time! I’m in love with the characters.


9. Salt to the Sea by Ruta SepetysRating: 5/5

I actually wrote a review for this book so I’m just going to copy some parts: This book is truly exceptional. It felt like I was watching a horror movie by the way my heart was pounding while reading this. And this sentence is clearly an understatement. If you like, please consider screaming, rolling in and out of bed, preparing two boxes of Kleenex (and used them), and sleeping while crying and heartbroken as the substitute meaning for my β€œheart was pounding.”

10. Roomhate by Penelope WardRating: 4/5

4 stars because of the protagonist’s hotness.

11. Beautiful Oblivion (The Maddox Brothers #1) by Jamie McGuireRating: 4/5

I binge read Beautiful series so I decided to read more about the Maddoxes. This book did not disappoint. I did not see the plot twist coming! I was just shocked when I read it.

12. Beautiful Redemption (The Maddox Brothers #2) by Jamie McGuireRating: 5/5

I’m not yet done with the whole series but I’m going to say it … THOMAS MADDOX IS MY FAVORITE!!!!!! He just set my expectation way too high and I don’t think I’m gonna love the rest Maddox because of him. Yeah, I’m totally in love with this book.

SO, that’s it! You can probably guess what are my favorite books out of the 12. *wink wink* I’ll be ecstatic if you’ve reached this part of this post. Congratulations!

I hope everyone had a great reading month because mine was fantastic! How many books have you read this year? πŸ™‚
