Book Update: May

Hey Happy Bookworms!

How are you guys doing? For me, this is my last week of school before we have our half term, so tomorrow is my last day!!

Update: Metamorphosis went really well! So, I’m excited to see what I got on it.


  • Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian • Buy here

I’ve got quite a lot to get through, and you don’t want to read the review again so here’s the link to my previous review.

I’ve also decided that instead of writing ‘I can’t tell you about this one’ because it’s my book club book, I’ll just leave it off.

  • Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell • Buy here

This is a bit more of a chunky book but I still read it quickly as you just get sucked into the world of Cath and all her quirks! It’s a book about growing up and becoming your own person, while still holding family as important (a lesson that one of the characters has to learn). The only thing I didn’t enjoy too much (which is a totally personal thing and I’m not saying anything about the quality of the writing) was the Simon Snow extracts (the books Cath fangirls over, basically a knock-off Harry Potter) I just didn’t find them interesting and I wasn’t invested in THAT story.

I’m also about to read Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell.

  • The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson • Buy here

  • The Hitchhiker’s guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams • Buy here

This was something I would never pick out for myself (since it’s a sci-fi) but my dad brought it for me so I read it, and although it doesn’t place in my favourites it was funny. And since we have the second book (and they’re only small) I’ll read it.

This was an extremely interesting book but I wish the ending was better. I’m all for a book that doesn’t have all the strings tied up at the end because it makes you wonder but I felt that this one needed just a bit more clarity. The book explores life in a cult, not the murderous ones that you hear about on TV but a much more common type, based on mother nature. As harmless as this lifestyle seems at first you start to see the flaws behind it and the evil controlling it.


  • Paper towns by John Green • Buy here

I know, I know, I’ve been ‘reading’ this for ages but I finally put it in my school book so that I would actually finish it and not just leave it lying around! It’s definitely picked up, even though it’s not going to be one of my favourites. I am thoroughly enjoying the car ride to find Margo though.

The reason I’m not reading a lot right now is because I’m trying to finish all my books before half term, it’s going well!

I’d just like to say 🎉 HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎂 to my Grandma, because it was her birthday on Tuesday, and I know she reads these! ❤
