What I’ve Been Reading: May

It’s Show Us Your Books day! I didn’t have a huge reading month – just three books! They were all fantastic, however. I’ve still got a big library stack I’m working my way through.

Nevermoor series (#1 & #2) by Jessica Townsend – 5 stars

It would be hard for me to love these books more. It’s definitely reminiscent of Harry Potter, but it felt like a new world of its own. They’re magical, funny, and warm. I devoured both and wish I could get more.

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson – 5 stars

You can’t go wrong with a Brandon Sanderson book, and I wasn’t disappointed. There’s a huge mystery that had me guessing till the end (I’m terrible at guessing, so others may figure it out faster). The characters had a sense of humor and the main character was a badass. There’s room for the next in the series, which comes out at the end of the year. The ending was satisfying on its own, however.

Circe by Madeline Miller

I’m towards the end of this, so I can already say READ THIS. I’ll hold off any further details until next time!

I’m linking up with Steph & Jana today for Show Us Your Books. Join in and share what you’ve been reading!

      1. The second one wasn’t even out yet when I read the first one. My mistake is always starting series that aren’t complete yet then when the next ones finally come out I have too many books waiting for my attention. Haha.

      2. I hate when I do that haha. That’s what happened with Skyward, but at least it had a good ending so I wasn’t left hanging.

  2. Loved Nevermoor. I had Wundersmith out from the library but lost my reading mojo so I’ll have to borrow it again to continue the adventures with Morrigan and crew. Such a fun book and series!

    1. I didn’t know anything about Circe going in, and I find myself falling unexpectedly in love with it. I’ve almost finished it, and already checked out her other book, The Song of Achilles, from the library.

  3. I loved Circe and I LOVE Nevermoor. I am so excited that she is continuing the series. Wundersmith was so good too!! Yay great books. I haven’t read any Brandon Sanderson but I might try sometime! It sounds good and we obviously have similar tastes 🙂

    1. Yes, try some Brandon Sanderson! Skyward would be a good intro, I think. His adult series can be more lengthy, as in several in a series and quite in depth. But this one was very balanced!

    1. You can always come back to Nevermoor when you’re in the mood! Sometimes a reading slump requires some time away or a very specific kind of book to get you out of it! I’ve had many many of those :).

  4. I’ve heard good things about Nevermoor so they’re being added to the list. Circe is on my list but I don’t know when I’ll get to it. It’s not high on the priority books.

  5. This is the first I’ve heard of Nevermoor, but apparently it’s hugely popular! Adding it to my Goodreads TBR now…

    1. It had been a long time since I’d read a Brandon Sanderson book, so Skyward was a nice step back into it. His adult series can be pretty massive. Hope you get to read Nevermoor, too!
