May 2014 Wrap Up

Hey everyone! Welcome to June!

Books read this month:

Allegiant (Divergent, #3)  We Were Liars  Out of Control

1. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
2. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde (reread)
3. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
4. Lobsters by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison
5. Out of Control by Sarah Alderson

Exams started on 12th May so I've not had that much time to read lately, but I've got a break in between exams now for half term so hopefully I'll be able to get lots of books read in between revision! This month I finally read Allegiant and finished Tris' story. I LOVED it and thought the ending was really well done, despite what a lot of other people have said about it. I definitely recommend this series! I had to reread Dorian Gray for my English exam (which went okayish I think) but that's all done now so I NEVER HAVE TO READ IT AGAIN WOOOO because I hate it. I loathe it with a passion, from the bottom of my heart... Don't shoot me! ;) Anyway, strong feelings for Dorian aside, I also read We Were Liars, as part of the #liarsliveread that took place on Twitter on 17th May. It was SUPER FUN and a really great book too! Out of Control was also fabulous and I really enjoyed it. I have a fun guest post from Sarah too, which you should definitely check out (link below)! 

Lobsters

My favourite book of the month though was Lobsters, which I read in one sitting after my longest and most feared exam. It was just sooo good and so awkward and so lovable and gah it was FABULOUS. I also interviewed the authors this month, and you can read that here. (Although Out of Control and We Were Liars also deserve an honourable mention here!)

This month's posts:

REVIEW: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
REVIEW: Allegiant by Veronica Roth
COVER REVEAL AND EXTRACT: Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie by Jeff Norton
INTERVIEW: Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison, authors of Lobsters
GUEST POST: My Favourite Things by Sarah Alderson

Boys Don't Knit and After Iris was this month's library haul, and I'm very much looking forward to both! I've had the sequel to After Iris for a little while now so I'm looking forward to being able to finally read it. I've also heard really good things about Boys Don't Knit so I'm hoping that will be a fun read. I was super excited when Say Her Name dropped through my letterbox - definitely will be reading that one as soon as I can! Lastly does anyone know if I can read The Maleficent Seven without having read the other Skulduggery Pleasant books? I'd like to read them, of course, but there are so many of them... :P I also got a sneaky preview of Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo but that's not pictured - which reminds me I need to catch up with Siege and Storm! Huge thanks to Hot Key Books, HarperCollins, Simon and Schuster, Indigo and Chicken House for all of my goodies this month!


So I don't know if you've seen, but Jim from YAYeahYeah is hosting a huge blog tour celebrating all of the awesome books coming out on 5th June (my interview with Tom and Lucy was part of it)  - because there are LOADS. You can head over to the website here to view all of them, but the ones I'm most looking forward to are:

Say Her Name  Picture Perfect (Geek Girl, #3)  Murder Most Unladylike (Wells and Wong, #1)
Lies Like Love  Smart  Embedded image permalink

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)
