May is nearly over so it means it’s time for a wrap up of all the books I read this month. I’m now free from uni stress so it means I have more time to read finally! I also had 2 weeks away from home this month, so I made sure to get a lot of books read then. It was a very successful month (and a very Cassandra Clare orientated month), I managed to read 11 books, which is the most I’ve actually read in a month since the start of this year!
The books I read were:
- Attack on Titan Vol. 2 by Hajime Isayama
- Attack on Titan Vol. 3 by Hajime Isayama
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
- City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
- City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
- City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
- City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
- City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
- City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
- Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
- Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Title: Attack on Titan Vol. 2 by Hajime Isayama
Review: I just love this manga series, the development of the story is so good and not too fast that you feel like you can’t keep up! Also I still love the art style, I think it’s so nice to read and adds so much to the overall look of the manga!
Title: Attack on Titan Vol. 3 by Hajime Isayama
Review: The character development throughout this manga in particular is so good, and really pulls you into the story! I can’t wait to carry on with the rest and see how it develops past the anime we have so far!
Title: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Review: When I originally bought this book it had a lot of mixed reviews and now I can kind of understand why. The plot does have a lot of similar aspects to other YA books, and some parts do make you sit there and try to remember where you’ve read something similar before, but it’s still such a great book. As similar as some aspects are, the story itself is so good and I loved the ending so much. It kept me entertained and guessing along the way that I can’t wait to read Glass Sword. Yes some parts are similar but that’s sometimes a common theme with YA and doesn’t make it any less enthralling!
Title: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Review: This is actually a re-read for me since I read the first 5 books in The Mortal Instruments a couple of years ago but needed to read the last one. I’m so glad I re-read them because this book is so good! Cassandra Clare writes so well and her level of fantasy just takes every other book of that genre and steps it up a notch.
