May Wrap Up

So basically, May has been a terrible reading month for me. I was exhausted all the time, and I had to work on my Master’s thesis – which I still have to complete. I managed to read four books throughout the month, which is a low. But I’m still glad because all four of them had been on my TBR for a long time, so that’s still great progress!

I didn’t film a video this month because I didn’t have the time, I look terrible, and it’s not all that worth it, if it’s only for four books, so here are my ratings!

Books I read this month:

Book 2 in the Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante ⭐⭐⭐
The End of Eddy by Edouard Louis ⭐⭐⭐⭐
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare ⭐⭐⭐
They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (review)

Currently reading:

Histoiry is all you left me by Adam Silvera
Journal du dehors by Annie Ernaux
Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward
Break.up by Joanna Walsh
