May was not the reading month I hoped it would be. I read 5 books which isn’t too bad, but it feels like I read way less. So, onto the 5 books I read last month!
Becoming Brianna by Terri Libensom
This was the first book I read and I finished it all in one night. It follows Brianna as she studies for her bat mitzvah while also navigating school and friends. I could relate to Brianna as a character because I too had a bat mitzvah and I remember feeling things similar to the Brianna. I gave this 3.5 stars.

Brazen Steele by Ali Dean
This book was a bit of a miss for me. It didn’t do anything for me and I felt like it didn’t add anything to the story. I gave this 2 stars.
Leave Me Breathless by Jodi Ellen Malpas
I enjoyed this but I think it was too long. The plot just felt dragged out and I think the author could of shortened the book. I did enjoy the romance in this book and the characters. I found the ending to be okay, I think the author tried to make this book something that it wasn’t, but I didn’t mind the little mystery it provided. I gave this 3 stars.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
I loved this book! There is definitely a lot of hype surrounding this book so I was a bit nervous going into it, but I am so happy I loved it! I loved the enemies to lovers trope in this book, I thought it was well done! Josh and Lucy are great characters and their relationship development throughout the book was well done. I gave this 5 stars.

S.T.A.G.S by M.A Bennett
This was the last book I read this month and I’m sad that I didn’t enjoy it. The writing style was the main issue for me, I almost considered DNFing the book because of it. I just couldn’t connect to it and it was making it a struggle for me to read the book. But the mystery of the plot is what kept me interested and reading. I was torn between giving this 2.75 and 3 stars but went with 3 stars because I was intrigued by the plot.
So those were the books I read in May! Some were good, others not so much, but thats just the way it goes.
