May + June Reading Wrap-Up!

Hey guys! Thanks so much for stopping by! Throughout the months of May + June, I managed to knock out quite a few books and am now 3 books away from reaching my Good Reads Goal.

In today’s video I share with you my thoughts on all of the books I read and talk about which were my favorites and why.

I hope you all find it interesting and hopefully find some books you might like to read yourself!


+ Love Without Borders: How Bold Faith Opens Door to Embracing the Unexpected by Angela Braniff – 5 Stars Great story telling, very fluid and easy to follow along I love that Angela talks so boldly and opening about how saying “yes” to God and all that he offers brings so much joy and opportunies in life.

+ A Court of Thorns & Roses by Sarah J Maas – 4.5 Stars AMAZING world building, incredible story telling abilities and great character development. This book is rated YA Fantasy but is definitely geared more towards the older crowd because of the explicit romance content.

+ A Court of Mist & Fury by Sarah J Maas – 5 Stars hands down my favorite book of the entire series. The fact that Sarah was able to take her characters struggles and walk us through how they overcome the mental and emotional trauma they suffer is beautiful. You will fall head over heels in love with each of these characters in this book.

+ A Court of Wings & Ruin by Sarah J Maas – 4 stars, Not my favorite in the series, because I have some issues with the plot line and the characters throughout the books. It is an important book in this series but I do have some problems with it.

+ A Court of Frost & Starlight by Sarah J Maas – 4 Stars when this book was announced I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and be reunited with some of my favorite fictional characters. I was not disappointed. Getting an inside look at life after so many crazy adventures for some of these characters was exciting. I can’t wait for the next installment!

+ The Selection by Kiera Cass – 4 Stars I love dystopian novels and this spin on the bachelor was refreshing and fun to say the least. Highly recommend this series if you want an exciting dystopian novel wrapped with romance and topped with a little war.

+ The Elite by Kiera Cass – 4 Stars

+ The One by Kiera Cass – 5 Stars

+ Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur – 5 Stars I’m really not one for poetry and this was my first collection of poems (aside from Where the Sidewalk ends) and I was not disappointed. Rupi manages to capture feelings of heartache, healing and love so vividly that I you are sure to be impacted by their weight. Each chapter deals with a different topic and as the books goes on you go through the process with her. Some poems really resonated with my and hit the nail right on the head, while others were a little too out of my depth for me. Either way if you choose to read this book, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Thank you guys so much for letting me be apart of your day! I hope you found this video helpful and entertaining! Y’all have a blessed and beautiful day.

Love,
Riaa
